The best place to be in Nîmes !...
Indeed , you'll find yourself in the historical center of this Roman town as well as in the middle of the green haven of the "Jardins de la Fontaine", which are the most remarkable formal gardens of the XVIII century. The 3 french windows - each leading to a balcony - are overlooking the "Temple de Diane" -which is less than 25 meters away -and the magnificent trees of the "Jardins".
You'll find a luxury flat with all modern mod cons, on the second floor with a lift in a secure residence .
You can park your car in a garage , or in the impasse just outside of the residence .

Here is a summary of the facilities inside the flat :
- a hall , a separate fitted kitchen , a dining-room /living-room ,- a bedroom / study , a bathroom , 2 lavatories...
- a large bed for ), a comfortable sofa-bed for 2 and a sofa-bed for children if needed
- a washing-machine...
- the flat has internet , a television , a DVD player
- Indoor games , books and magazines are available ...

The shops and restaurants are near. The covered market is worth a visit ...
The bus-stops are very close and there is a shuttle for the airport and one for the station.

The flat is ideally situated for a walking tour of Nîmes :
- You go through the "Jardins" , walking along its paths , you have a look at the fountains and its swans , at the basins, at the " Temple de Diane " , you can admire the view of the town from the top of the " Tour Magne "...
- You go along the " Quais de la Fontaine ", which is a quiet shaded street . On the way , you can admire " la Maison Carrée " - a sublime Roman monument which is over 2000 years old - and the contemporary " Carré d'Art " -which was designed by Foster .
- A few more steps on the " Boulevard Victor Hugo" and you'll see the impressive and gorgeous Roman Arenas or amphitheater...
- You cross the " Esplanade " and let yourself enjoy the cool charm of the typical alleys of the " Ecusson " area . Quite a maze, I must admit , but really worth discovering...
We have finish with Nîmes and I have said nothing about the Museum ...

The surroundings are worth a visit too !...The Gard is an area of contrasts and diversity in its landscapes , in its culture and traditions .
- The " Cévennes "have a long history linked to the Camisards; you can visit the " Musée du Désert ", Anduze and its " Bambouseraie ", Ganges , The "Mont Aigoual " and its transhumances ; you can also have long walks in the footsteps of Stevenson...
- The sea and its beaches : La Grande Motte , Le Grau du Roy , Aigues Mortes and its battlements , Les Saintes Maries de la Mer ( very typical with the gypsy traditions and the gypsy music ) , its flamingoes , its parks , its ponds , its nature reserves...Not to be missed !
- The Provence , our neighbour : Saint Rémy de Provence and the impressive site of Glanum , Les Baux and its cathedral of images , Le Luberon , Aix en Provence and Arles ( Nîmes's majestic rival !...)
- Do not forget Uzes and its Duché, its " Place aux Herbes " and its market , Le Pont du Gard , Avignon (1/2 hour away ) , Montpellier ( the same ) and the lovely villages in the Gard....

Without forgetting the numerous festivals , votive fairs , ferias and various cultural events which invade the little village squares throughout the Summer . To put it into a nutshell , the Gard is a cultural land , full of traditions which one must discover taking one's time...
