About Gard Provençal

This is not the mad Côte d’Azur, or Peter Mayle’s over-loaded Luberon.  Here in Gard Provençal, we are in the most beautiful but undiscovered and calm part of southern France - 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.
