Sites to visit
 

Here are some places and cities that we love and that we suggest you visit in the area: urban, nature, there is something for everyone!  

Herault

Saint Guilhem le Désert : 1 hour from the campsite, on the road to Compostela, Saint Guilhem le Désert is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in France. Gellone Abbey  is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a very touristic village, we advise you to go there rather in low season to avoid the "crowds".

If you like  the caves about ten minutes from the village you can visit the Clamouse cave. 

Not far from there the Devil's Bridge with great swimming spots.  

Saint Jean de Fos : Next to the Clamouse cave, still 1 hour from the campsite, Saint Jean de Fos is a pretty medieval village which retains a very old tradition around glazed pottery (crockery, pot, jewelry but also gutters, gutters , tiles that we can see throughout our wanderings in the village). Many workshops / shops on site.  

Montpellier  : Also 1 hour from the campsite, Montpellier is the second largest city in Occitania. Very dynamic, the city is pleasant to visit with its large pedestrian center and its historical monuments.  

 

Cirque de Navacelles  : An hour from here, the Cirque de Navacelles is an exceptional natural site formed by the Vis river whose clear water is very cool. Superb view from the Belvédères de Blandas. Possibility of many walks around and in the circus. Useful info, since the beginning of July and for the summer period, you can leave the car in the car park and use the free shuttle from the Belvédères de Blandas to visit the various sites of the Circus.  

Gard  

Anduze : " Porte des Cévennes", 50 minutes from the campsite, a nice little Cévennes town to visit, very lively in summer.

Saint-Jean-du-Gard : A little over an hour away, Saint-Jean-du-Gard is worth a visit to the Maison Rouge museum, installed in a former spinning mill, it traces, among other things, the history of Cevennes.  

Nîmes : Capital of Gard, about 1h20 from the campsite, Nîmes has a very old history and still has many Roman monuments: arenas, square house, the Magne tower etc. to visit. We recommend, next to the arenas, the Museum of Romanity .  

Uzès : At a short 1h30, still a city rich in its history, first with the Roman occupation (see the Pont du Gard) then from the 5th century when it became a large bishopric. The city retains many monuments from these periods and still has a historic center where it is good to stroll around the Place aux Herbes, for its market and its pretty shops. We advise you to avoid the high season to go there, many people. 

For (older) children we recommend the 1900 museum.

Pont du Gard  : museum, stroll, cinema, swimming there is something to see and do on the site of the Pont du Gard, Roman remains from the 1st century  

A little further :  

Gard :  

Aigues Mortes : 1h30 from the campsite, another port town worth a look with the tour of the ramparts and its historic center.  

Mouths of  Rhône  :  

Arles : A little 2 hours from the campsite, for its old town and its Roman monuments (amphitheater and its ancient theater), for its museums in particular  the departmental museum of ancient Arles.

Sainte Marie de la Mer : "capital" of the Camargue two hours from the campsite, the town is known for its church, its gardian's huts. More broadly, the Camargue is worth a detour, do not hesitate to go for a ride on horseback or on foot to discover its nature, its various ponds, its famous pink flamingos ... Very touristy especially in summer, we advise you to go there rather go in low season. 

We recommend the ornithological park of Pont de Gau .

Var

Avignon : 2 hours from the campsite, Avignon has a rich history with the most famous: the city of the Popes, the Saint Bénezet bridge or the ramparts that surround the city.  

Aveyron:  

 

Larzac plateau: 

The Cavalry :  1 hour from the campsite, the Cavalry, a former site of the Templars deserves a short visit with its fortified gate, its ramparts ... Presence also around the village of menhirs and dolmens. Avoid when there is a lot of sun.
