The Gard, the ideal holiday destination!
Between its natural parks, historical sites and the radiant sunshine of its terroir, the Gard knows exactly how to make holidaymakers fall in love with it. Crossed by the River Gardon that gave its name to the entire area, your camping holiday in the Gard is certain to include plenty of bathing in gloriously clear freshwater. So make sure you don’t miss out on its peaceful secluded bathing spots: the inland beaches of the Gard are every bit as delightful as those of the Mediterranean coast!
When it comes to soaking up all the tranquillity of a stay in the countryside you can count on our Sandaya campsite in the Gard. There’s nowhere better to switch off and unwind! And whilst the kids are likely to spend much of their time playing in the swimming pools and on the waterslides of the water park, it’s also an opportunity for them to discover the gems of the Gard, between natural and built heritage. After enjoying the campsite’s sports and family entertainment, recharge the batteries in the comfort of a fully-equipped mobile home or on an authentic camping pitch. Let the day begin!

And don’t miss…
Visit the Gard with the family
On holiday in the Gard with the kids, make the most of it to head off in the footsteps of our ancestors the Romans and the architectural masterpieces they left behind. Begin your journey in Nîmes and its famous arena, almost the identical twin of the Coliseum in Rome, then head deep into the Gard countryside to reach the Pont du Gard. The remains of an ancient aqueduct built 2,000 years ago, the Pont du Gard is both a Unesco world heritage site and a listed Grand Site de France. An absolute must-see during your family holiday!
Time to cool off? Hire a kayak to paddle down the Gorges du Gardon and pass beneath the arches of the aqueduct, towering 49m above you.
Visit the Gard as a couple
For couples in search of a romantic holiday in every shade of green and picturesque villages to wander hand-in-hand, the Gard is an unbeatable destination. Here, between Provence and Languedoc, you can’t help but slow down and take your time, especially when the fine weather returns! Above all, don’t miss a trip to Uzès and Aigues-Mortes, two of the Gard’s most gorgeous beauty spots. The first offers an opportunity to sample the delicious delights of its famous weekly market, the second invites you to admire the incredible views from the top of its medieval ramparts.
For those who love getting out and about surrounded by nature, head to the Camargue Natural Regional Park where the land seems to float on the water, to the totally spectacular Cirque de Navacelles or to the Trabuc Cave at the foot of the Cévennes. You’ll be spoilt for choice when you want to get far away from the hustle and bustle!
