Euzet-Les-Bains, Languedoc-Rousillion, France
15km from the medieval market town of Uzès, this is an extraordinary spot between Provence, The Cevennes, The Camargue and the Mediterranean. Nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Pont du Gard, Nîmes Arena, the ramparts of Aigues-Mortes and more, offer a destination rich in history and nature.
The region has been, and continues to be home and inspiration to numerous visionaries including Robert Louis Stevenson, Anselm Kiefer, Le Docteur Perrier and Jean Racine. The area has been popularised in Kate Mosse's historical fiction Languedoc Trilogy.
The Frank Gehry's mountain-like tower is currently underway at LUMA Arles and the region is a popular destination for consuming contemporary and traditional art, interior design and antiques.
Gastronomy, wine and fine regional produce also attract international connoisseurs to the local towns and countryside alike.
Festival Highlights - January: Truffle Festival, Uzès, March: Film Festival, Alès, June: Dance Festival, Uzès, July: Avignon Festival and Tour de France,
The relaxed village of Euzet-Les-Bains is especially popular with artists, walkers and cyclists. There is an accredited riding school in the village, and endless hacking and walking trails are on the doorstep.
Swimming spots within easy reach by car: wild swimming opportunities are plentiful, the coast is within easy reach, and there is an aqua park 10 mins by car from Euzet.
On our doorstep: Seynes, The Cevennes, The Camargue, The Ardèche Gorges and The Gardon, all hosts to every imaginable leisure activity including Hot air ballooning, Abseiling, Kayaking, Canoeing, Paragliding, Road and Off-Road cycling.
NOTES ON REGIONAL CHANGES:
Occitanie is the newly created administrative region of France that officially replaces Languedoc-Rousillion and Midi-Pyrénées
Some resources continue to use the term Languedoc-Roussillon, so sometimes it helps to use both the old and new names when searching for a location.
