Activities and Attractions near Two Self-catering Apartments with Terrace, Pool & View in France
Both the climate and the landscape lend themselves to an outdoor lifestyle in this part of the South France. With the sea, rivers, mountains and endless rolling countryside never more than a short drive away and consistent sunshine throughout the spring and summer months, it is like a playground for the outdoor enthusiast.
Historical Gard - wander in and wonder at the towns and cities of historical significance in the area such as Nimes, Uzès, Montpellier, Arles, and Avignon over the River Rhône in Provence or visit the delightful mediaeval towns of Vézénobres, Aigues Mortes, and St Guilhem-le-Desert (Hérault).
Le Pont du Gard is the most spectacular and best preserved part of a grandiose aqueduct built by the Romans to transport water from Uzès to Nimes. A whole day is required to visit Le Site Pont du Gard where both adults and children alike can take in the variety of activities.
The area has a fascinating mix of parks and tours with something of interest for all ages. Within a few square kilometers you can find anything from trips on a steam train to guided walks through bamboo forests, from descents into mines to tours of aquariums. The Gard is rich in popular rural traditions and the craftsmen today still strive to preserve and maintain their local 'savoir-faire'. Visit the centres of 'Vasses Boisset d'Anduze' and St Quentin la Poterie or delve deep into the soul of the Gard with trips to the 'Musée des Vallees Cevenoles' , the 'Musée des Beaux Arts' or the 'Musée du Desert'.
The location is arguably one of the most beautiful and interesting in France. The landscape is as varied as it is stunning - bordered by both the Mediterranean and the mountains - where hundreds of species of wildlife thrive in their natural habitat, and carpeted with acres of vineyards, sunflowers, lavender and natural scrubland.
Steeped in history, the region refuses to let go of it's traditions and with it's close proximity to Spain there is a strong Catalan influence, where bullfighting is not uncommon especially during 'La Féria'. Many villages keep the tradition of honouring the bull and running the white horses of the Camargue through their streets in the summer season and the sport of water-jousting which goes back to the Middle Ages can still be witnessed Le Grau du Roi.
A visit to the region would not be complete without visiting one of the many markets where pallets of local produce are displayed in glorious multicolour with aromas to entice! The variety of local produce is such that it cannot all be detailed, but a shortlist of Olives, Honey, 'Pelardon' (the traditional goat's cheese of the Cevennes), Chestnuts, Truffles, Asparagus, Figs, Camargue Rice and Shellfish and dishes such as 'Boeuf à la Gardianne' and 'Brandade du Morue' will suffice to whet the appetite although it only touches on the gastronomic delights of the region, whilst being a part of the largest wine producing region in France means that there is a wealth of expertise to be drawn on.
