About Gard Provençal

This is not the mad Côte d’Azure, or Peter Mayle’s over-loaded Luberon.  Here in Gard Provençal, we are in the most beautiful but undiscovered and calm part of ancient Provence.  And real, calm French life.

This is Provence as it used to be, unspoiled, uncrowded and stunningly lovely. Uzès is a few minutes away and is one of the best-preserved mediaeval towns in Europe; its twice-weekly market is justly famous.

If you don’t have an amazing time here there must be something wrong with you. Liz Hurst, Melbourne, Australia
