THE AREA
West of Provence lies the undiscovered region known as the Gard, extending from Nmes north to the medieval market towns of Uzs and Als. The "garrigues," the typical hills of the region, are scented with wild thyme and rosemary, and dotted with tiny villages that remain off the beaten path. A distinctive area with a long and fascinating history-it was once the Roman heart of France-the Gard makes an ideal base for day trips throughout Provence and the South of France. The most famous landmark here is probably the Pont du Gard, the Roman aqueduct built in 19 B.C. to bring water to Nmes. It is an extraordinary sight, not to be missed by any visitor to this area. Nmes, known as the Rome of France, is home to the Maison Carree (a Roman temple, now a museum), and a large Roman theater still used for performances today. Provence, Avignon, and St-Remy-de-Provence are all within easy driving distance. You can also plan day trips northwest to the scenic Gorges de l'Ardeche, or southwards to the Camargue coast (both about an hour's drive).

THE PROPERTIES
Our properties in the Gard include cottages, old stone farmhouses, and villas, usually set in the countryside, a short drive from the nearest hamlet or village. Most of our properties are clustered around Uzs, which has a well-preserved medieval center with a lovely cloistered square. Als and Nmes are within easy reach. An attractive villa with a pool here is usually less expensive than a comparable property in Provence, with the advantages of a setting less impacted by tourism in the busy summer months. Most of the larger villas enjoy private pools, and smaller properties often share a pool. We also feature many affordable gtes, inexpensive properties in the nationwide French system of private farm cottages and other rural homes. This is only an introduction to our properties in the Gard. Please contact us for flyers describing individual homes.

INTERIORS
Properties include 1-5 bedroom(s), 1-3 or more bathroom(s), living room, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen. Furnishings and decor vary according to the individual owners; some are simple, others are more luxurious, sometimes with amenities such as dishwasher and washing machine.

HIGHLIGHTS
Villas and cottages in the Gard-the heart of Roman France, an unspoiled area with easy access to the Pont du Gard and historic Nmes and Uzs; day trips throughout the South of France.
