It's hard to tire of Gard

The ancient Roman influence is one of the most noticeable things when you stay in a Gard vacation rental. There are well-preserved Roman structures here aplenty, including the famous Pont du Gard aqueduct that spans the Gardon River and the sweeping amphitheater. There's never a dull moment in the towns and cities like Nimes, where typically beautiful food markets line the cafe-laden streets. Beyond the urban centers, a whole world of outdoorsy fun awaits, particularly for families who come to hike the footpaths, canoe down the gorgeous waterways, or simply kick back in the park with a picnic of French goodies.

Walk in the footsteps of Romans in Gard

If you're a rambler, you're in for a treat when you stay at a Gard vacation rental. There are more well-maintained and marked hiking footpaths than you could stomp along in a lifetime, 9,000 kilometers to be precise, many of which were built and used by the Romans. France has a bit of an obsession with canoeing and when you see their glorious waterways, you'll quickly understand why. A sunny afternoon gently paddling downstream is never time wasted. Extreme sports nuts can get their fix climbing the cliff faces or taking off in paragliders on the thermals above.

Discover Roman Gaul history in Gard

Over the years, this part of France has seen its fair share of rulers and conquerors, most notably the Romans, who marched in almost 2,000 years ago. Remnants of their past can be seen in the amphitheater they built, one of the biggest in Roman Gaul, which once saw gladiators battle it out in front of over 20,000 cheering spectators. Just outside Nimes you'll find more Roman remains at the Jardins de la Fontaine. Art lovers shouldn't miss the Musee Albert Andre, while families with kids will love the interactive Haribo Sweet Museum in Uzes.

Sun-soaked summer days in Gard

The temperature varies greatly depending on which time you stay in a Gard vacation rental. Typically, the summer days sizzle and the winter days are mild. The busiest months are between June and August, when French families leave the stuffy cities en masse for some fun in the sun. The sun-soaked beaches often hit the mid-80s and the evenings are balmy. If crowds aren't your thing and you don't mind slightly cooler climes, you might be best scoring a rental in spring or fall. You'll also benefit from a serious dip in prices.

The wildlife of Cevennes National Park in Gard

If you've packed and made room in your luggage for a pair of binoculars and your walking shoes, you should make a beeline for the Cevennes National Park, one of France's premier wildlife viewing spots. It's difficult to turn one of the winding footpaths without coming face-to-face with some of the critters that reside here. Look out for herds of deer and the beautiful free-roaming Przewalski's horses that roam around the park. You'll want to watch your step though. You wouldn't want to tread on one of the little hedgehogs or squash the lizards that lie out in the midday sun.
