This area has many colourful rivers meandering through old picturesque villages such as Sauve, Quissac and Sommeires. Many of the villages date back to medieval times and have attractive chateaux and other historical buildings. The small town of Uzes is just one of the many in the area that are famed for their markets.
Crumbling castles, ancient stone villages and farming hamlets are set against wooded sunlit mountains. In the Gard, olives, vines, lavender and fragrant maquis grow near the Rhône and in the valleys. Holm oaks, chestnuts and maritime pines grow in rugged natural amphitheatres. The Romans built the magnificent Pont-du-Gard to quench the thirst of Nîmes, site of the best preserved Roman temple, the Maison Carrée.
Towards the coast is the wonderful area of the Camargue with its wealth of bird life. The coast where the beach of Le Grau du Roi, for example holds the blue ribbon. A seasonal touristic venue, with its pedestrian areas, shops, restaurants and bars, catering for the tourists.
Access to the area by air is via either Montpelier or Marseilles. The autoroute system from Paris down the Rhone Valley offers the most direct main route but the autoroute also comes across from Toulouse towards Narbonne and then back northwards to Montpelier and Nimes. There are also very good train facilities to the area.
The rugged terrain is ideal for adventure sports: rafting, kayaking, canoeing, exploring caves and shooting along the rapids of the magnificent gorges, along with fishing, rock climbing mountain biking and pony trekking. The rivers are refreshing for swimming. To the north the National Park of the Cevennes has a real beauty of its own with splendid panoramas opening up all around. It also boasts many grottos, the Protestant Museum, many monuments, bamboo forest and a tourists steam railway. For those who enjoy walking there are about 22 marked footpaths. The ancient town of Ales is the capital of the region, with good shops and restaurants.
