The Gard department is part of l’Occitanie, bordering Provence.

It is famous for its colourful food, wines, medieval castles, culture, history, villages and market towns, farm or stone houses full of character.

Le Gard is home to many well-known and not-so-well-known towns and villages characterised by the history and charm of this area of France.

Some of the well-known ones include Nimes, Montpellier, Arles and Avignon. Lesser known towns include the medieval market town of Uzes, the recently selected prettiest village of Lussan, and many other character-filled villages such as Barjac (where Anselm Keiffer has his studio), Vezenobres, Aigues Morte and the ceramics village of Saint Quentin la Poterie.

It is also known for the famed Pont du Gard, a Roman aquaduct on the Gardon River and for the wonderful wild marshes of the Camargue, not far from Nimes, as well as for the Cevennes National Park.

The Gard region is a place of discovery of things historic, cultural and natural, which will leave you feeling that you’ll have to return to appreciate it all.
