Make a holiday home, apartment, cottage, farmhouse, house or villa in Nimes, France your home away from home

The wonderful city of Nimes is best known for its fantastic Roman sites, combining history, culture and scenery into a fantastic tourist destination. Situated in Southern France, Nimes is just inland from the Mediterranean coast, north east of Montpellier, and north west of Marseille; this is France’s popular Languedoc-Roussillon region.

Things to do on holiday in Nimes, France

Although Nimes is near to the coast this attractive city is more popular as a city break destination rather than a beach holiday, but that being said the location means that holidaymakers can enjoy the best of both worlds here! The lovely beaches of the region are easily accessible when you want a day of relaxation. Your Nimes self catering accommodation is also a great base from which to enjoy the beautiful Provence region of France. The city is surrounded by attractive villages and hills to the north, so visitors can make the most of the countryside by enjoying walks or bicycle rides.

As a fairly sizeable city, Nimes has everything you’ll need while staying in self catering accommodation. There are plenty of shops and supermarkets here, plus some great restaurants when you want a break from the cooking, and bars if you want a lively night out.

Places to visit on holiday in Nimes, France

This part of France has a great deal of natural beauty to offer though the highlight of a self catering holiday in Nimes is the man-made attractions. Nimes dates back to the times of the Roman Empire and is full of Roman ruins. The Roman Amphitheatre is second only to Rome’s Coliseum and is the best preserved Roman arena in France. It is actually still used to this day for bull fighting and to host concerts and events. Maison Carre is another of the Roman sights. This is a very well preserved temple and features a short film inside. About 15 miles outside of Nimes is one more piece of Roman architecture. The Pont du Gard is an impressive aqueduct that used to carry water into the city. But these are just a few of the attractions you’ll be able to enjoy when staying in accommodation in Nimes! You should also take time to visit some of the surrounding towns and cities too, such as Avignon, Montpellier and Marseille.

The weather in Nimes, France

Being situated not far from the coast, self catering accommodation in Nimes benefits from a Mediterranean climate. During the summer temperatures are hot though not excessive, however, some visitors may prefer to visit during the cooler winter, spring and autumn months when you can enjoy sightseeing without the larger crowds and a little less heat.

Flights to Nimes, France

The closest airport is just outside Nimes itself – the Nimes-Arles-Camargue Airport is just to the south of the city and has flights with Ryanair.

Fantastic weekend break away

5 of 5
My friend and I had a really lovely weekend visit. The villa is fantastic and fully equipped with everything you could need - coffee machines, juicers, outdoor kitchen area with bbq and a modern indoor kitchen with microwave, cooker etc. We were totally happy just using the outdoor kitchen as the weather was great so we bbq'd each evening. There are 3 double bedrooms - 2 with ensuite and a separate bathroom. Living room and dining tables both inside and out. The area is very quiet so I would recommend a car, however if you are just there to totally chill, a taxi from the airport was about 30 Euro. Carrefour is around a 15 minute walk and there is a fantastic bakery at the end of the road. There's also a small restaurant next to Carrefour. Apart from that there's not much else to walk to. But is was all we needed and worked well. I would totally recommend this villa and the hosts were very helpful and lovely.
