La Bambouserie Website It’s a stop on the train line, hop off hop on afterwards
Nimes Nimes, what a town! great shopping (night market on a Thursday) and full of culture. Ever wondered what it would be like to be a gladiator and stand in a REAL roman arena ? Also the Maison Carre is a surviving Roman temple Website


Bring your clubs! (or hire!) There are 3 golf clubs nearby, all worth a visit. There is a 9 hole course within a couple of minutes drive from the house, a family owned club and a great way to spend a morning.

Club hire is available at all Caves Du Trabuc Website Try the caves at Trabuc, descend down deep underground, the most spectacular site (take a jumper even in Summer) There are other caves in the region too. Also see Grotte La Cocaliere Website Go-Karting There is a great Go-Karting track nearby too! Website Quad biking, Water parks, nature parks, and more! Website


The region is in the heart of Roman Gaul, and so many towns have wonderful Roman structures, Orange is another fine example with the Triumphal Arch and Roman Theatre. Website Yes the famous town is just 20 minutes away with a great climb to what is left of the Chateau. LOTS OF WINE SHOPS !! Website
