A richly historic region set within the Languedoc department in the South of France, Gard’s small but spectacular stretch of Mediterranean coast is home to one of the French Riviera’s hidden gems – the seaside town of Le Grau-du-Roi. A picturesque, family-friendly destination that’s full of old world charm, where colourful fishing boats bob along the palm-tree lined port, it is surrounded by typically provincial and ever-enticing boutiques and café’s touting local produce; from trinkets and charms to tasty local treats.
Travel further north through to Nîmes and discover its dramatic landscape, iconic Roman monuments and remains; here you can witness the infamous bullfights, take part in colourful festivals and immerse yourselves in a truly unique cultural experience, perhaps one of the proudest and most celebrated in France.
Follow the river Cèze up through the region and discover river-stone villages and mountainous landscapes, up to the borders it shares with Provence and the impossibly beautiful Camargue area which is famous for being home to wild horses, bulls and flamingos.
A beautifully diverse destination, Gard offers a flavour of the Med alongside some of France’s most historical and interesting landmarks.
