Extraordinary natural regions 

The Gard is one of a handful of French departments to benefit from such a wide variety of natural surroundings. To the north lies the Cévennes National Park and its mountains, providing a stunning setting in which to switch off and unwind. Paradise for nature lovers! 

To the south, on the coast, the Petite Camargue also has plenty to offer. The Mediterranean, the lagoons, the salt marshes in Aigues-Mortes, the manades (semi-wild cattle herds) and the ViaRhôna cycle path... not to mention the unique fauna and flora, including bulls, horses and flamingos who live peacefully side by side. 

And finally, the Gorges du Gardon and the Gorges de la Cèze, where holidaymakers will discover some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Gard. Idyllic spots that are home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. 


A land of history 

Some of these villages date from medieval times. You’ll find them perched high up or set against a hillside. Take a visit and you’ll be whisked back in time to the days of the knights. You’ll find a similar experience in Aigues-Mortes, with its ramparts and Constance Tower. This town blends the Middle Ages, with its protective walls, and a more contemporary feel.

It is a perfect example of the Provençal influence that is felt in the east of the department. In a similar vein, Uzès is another must-see destination. With its Ducal castle and iconic market, the town is a wonderful place for a stroll. 

Take another step back in time, to the Roman era this time, with a trip to Nîmes, its arenas, the Maison Carrée Roman temple, the Magne Tower and the Musée de la Romanité Gallo-Roman museum. Then head a few miles further east, where the sumptuous Pont du Gard towers over the garrigue.
