The Rhone river is a frontier, a navigation channel and generator of energy. It is also the cradle of great historical heritage, between Provence and Languedoc. Gard county along the Rhone offers the best of both worlds – southern verve plus the authenticity so beloved to the inhabitants of the Gard. Enjoy a tailor-made stay that combines nature, culture and the pleasures of the table. You’ll be glad you did.
From Pont-Saint-Esprit to Beaucaire, in Vallabrègues, Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres, Roquemaure and elsewhere, the towns and villages along the Rhone offer long and interesting history. See the 18 hectares of vestiges of the Roman oppidum known as the Camp de César, explore Saint Roman abbey and the amazing tombs carved into the rock. In beautiful Villeneuve-Lez-Avignon, the Val de Bénédiction Charterhouse monastery and majestic Fort Saint-André seem to defy Avignon and the famous bridge that lies between the two. Many monuments and symbols remain from the time when French Kings challenged the Popes, to the delight of today’s visitors who benefit from these exceptional venues.
Today’s pleasures include the Côtes du Rhône wine appellations that encompass Chusclan, Tavel, Laudun, Saint-Gervais, Signargues, Lirac… evocative names that lead to the discovery of outstanding terroirs. These wine-growing villages also offer interesting discoveries and tours, which are described under the “Vignobles & Découvertes” label. Speaking of rivers, do not overlook a barge cruise on the Rhône-to-Sète canal, where you can take your bicycles and enjoy the developed riverside stopping points.

Explore the Gard by driving along the many wine roads.
The Gard is full of highly diverse terroirs where vineyards happily thrive. In the Gard alone, the winemakers have patiently crafted six different Appellations d’Origine Protégées (Protected Designation of Origin) and three distinct Indications Géographiques Protégées (Protected Geographical Indication) full of sunshine, aromas and generosity.
The successful viticulture in the Gard is strongly related to the soils and their different characteristics: ochre and red soils enriched with alluvial deposits from the Rhône, rounded pebbles in the Costière, chalky scrubland, carbonated soils in the plains, dune sand along the coast – many different types of soils which give rise to the richness and diversity of vineyards in the Gard.
