Gard forms part of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. It is next to the Bouches-du-Rhône, Ardèche, Vaucluse, Hérault, Aveyron and Lozère departments. The highest point of Gard is Mont Aigoual in the Cévennes mountains at 1567m altitude and its most famous town is Le Grau Du Roi. From the Mont Aigoual observatory at the Phare de l'Espiguette, Gard reveals a range of varied landscapes over a short distance. With the Massif Central mountains at its head, the Mediterranean at its feet and facing the Rhône, Gard is a collage of landscapes lit up by the sun of the South with mountains, garrigue scrubland and coastal plain. This scenery has widely inspired French cinema! As a Mediterrenean area, the local Gard specialities include brandade, taureau de Camargue en gardianne, goat's cheese and olive oil with a wine list that has largely developped over the past twenty years! Gard is one of the most visited tourist areas, and for good reason! It possesses real historical treasures, particularly the famous Pont du Gard, a Roman masterpiece also known as 'the eighth wonder of the world' or even Aigues Mortes, a medieval fortified town and not forgetting the Arena of Nîmes, built nearly 2000 years ago. For those interested in nature, numerous sites are worth visiting during your stay: the bambouseraie d’Anduze, Gorges du Gardon as well as Espiguette, a classified site- near to Le Grau du Roi- comprised of dunes, beaches and lagoons. Despite only having a small coastline (23km), Gard is home to the largest marina in Europe, Port-Carmargue. In Gard you will find an amazing choice of private villas, houses and apartments with a swimming pool for a pleasant stay. Let us help you find the place of your dreams for your next holiday rental.
