The holiday home is located on the outskirts of the village of Gagnières and owes its name to the river La Ganière that flows near our house. The house is detached and is situated in an enclosed garden of 1250 m2 with a spacious swimming pool and unobstructed views of the Cevennes. The bakery, a small shop and some restaurants can be reached on foot or by bike. A large supermarket can be reached within 10 minutes by car.
What does the region have to offer? The holiday home is an excellent base for exploring both the Cevennes and the South Ardeche. In the Cevennes you can combine nature, culture and sports activities well. You can take beautiful walks or bike rides and swim in the clear bathing water of the many rivers along the way. Those who want more of a challenge can go rafting, canoeing or kayaking from Vallon-Pont-d'Arc. In addition, there are dozens of castles and museums in our area, not to mention beautiful old villages such as Barjac, St. Ambroix and Les Vans where there is a flea market every week. The Gard also has many activities to offer for children.
In terms of location, Gagnières is perfect for visiting Provencal towns such as Avignon, Nîmes, Orange and Uzès. The Mediterranean can be reached in an hour and a half.

    We werden gastvrij ontvangen door Gary en Sarah. In de koelkast troffen we drankjes aan en op het aanrecht stonden lekkere knabbels klaar. Toen we vertelden dat we graag wandelen, kregen we allerhande wandelroutes en -kaarten aangereikt. De gîte is schoon, netjes en alles wat je nodig hebt, is aanwezig. De tuin en het zwembad deel je met de grote gîte, maar we hadden voldoende privacy. Het was heerlijk plonzen in het zwembad na een warme dag.

Restaurants, food & wine

The food in the Gard is very delicious and blessed with the powerful aroma of the Mediterranean areas with olive oil, garlic and southern herbs such as thyme, rosemary, bay leaf and saffron.
The coastal areas offer a wide variety of fish and seafood, inland we are endowed with "légumes de soleil" such as peppers, aubergines and courgettes and also strawberries, cherries, peaches and melons in different seasons.
There is a growing number of bistros and restaurants that will appeal to all tastes and budgets! Look forward to "formulas" for a good, well-prepared weekday midday meal.


The holiday home is an ideal base for exploring the Gard, the Cevennes and the South Ardèche. There are too many activities to list them all! We have a great selection of current information brochures and we can also give you ideas for day trips. Here are a few...

You can swim in the rivers in the area such as the Cèze, La Ganière, Chassezac (early or late season) and the Gorges de l'Ardeche (all seasons). You will also find beautiful gorges and beaches. The Lac de Villefort, a large mountain lake, is also recommended. In addition to good bathing water and various beaches, there is also a good walking path around the entire lake.
For those who want to spend the day more actively, there are several options in the immediate vicinity. You can take breathtaking canoe trips of different lengths. In addition, there are endless opportunities for hiking, cycling / mountain biking in the endless rolling hills in the area.
You can also view the area on horseback. Guided horseback rides are organized by the horse farm "le Malibaud". If you are interested in flora and fauna, the boat trip with the "Confrerie de bateliers de l'Ardeche" is a must. They organize day trips through the "Réserve Naturelle", one of the most beautiful protected natural areas in France.
Would you rather play a game of golf? Then you can play on the 18-hole golf course in Nîmes.
There is also a wide variety of activities for children. You will find excitement and thrills at the Grand Bois. Curious how crocodiles live? Visit the crocodile zoo. For children and adults, you can also visit the Haribo Museum near Uzès.
It is fun for the whole family to take a trip through the Cevennes with the Anduze steam train. This tour can easily be combined with a visit to the bamboo forest "La Bambouseraie".
... Or you can just relax by the pool and enjoy the blue skies and the sun of the Gard!
