Anduze's mediaeval charm

Anduze, lying in the sun-drenched Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, offers mediaeval charm coupled with a friendly atmosphere, and a welcome that is as warm as the weather. The town's ancient streets and houses are now home to a great selection of restaurants, shops (many selling the famous local pots) cafés, banks, bookshops and other amenities, and all of this combines to ensure that the town is as lively today as it is interesting historically. The ancient clock tower is a fascinating centrepiece to the town, and the flea markets and farmers markets are as popular now as they have been for centuries, with visitors and locals alike.

A Calvinist enclave

Although France is traditionally a Catholic country, Anduze was (and still is) staunchly Protestant. This fact played a very important part in its history, and the story of the struggles endured by the people of Anduze in defence of their faith are recorded in the Musée du Désert which stands just outside the town.

Beautiful vases… and bamboo

Anduze is famous for the crafting of big pottery vases, such as those found in the gardens of the wealthy gentry of the area in the 16th century. They became so highly acclaimed that the Sun King himself had some in the gardens at the Palace of Versailles, to protect his delicate orange trees from frost. Replica vases are still produced here. Just a short way from Anduze itself is 'The Bambouserie de Prafrance'. This is a park well worth a visit, where spectacular giant bamboo is grown, and where there is a shop selling gifts and bamboo plants, should you want to start your own 'bambouserie' at home!

Forget TGV, go TVC!

Never mind the 'Train Grand Vitesse', when you are in Anduze you need to take a ride on the 'Train à Vapeur de Cévennes', a steam locomotive which puffs its way along the Gardon valley, affording you an idyllic way to enjoy this wonderful area. It isn't as fast as the TGV, but it is highly recommended!

Gourmet delights at budget prices

Anduze is not a large place, but it has several very good restaurants where delicious food can be found at reasonable prices. Local specialities to try include 'Trénel Millavois', Cévenol sausage, air-dried hams, and other pork products produced from outdoor reared pigs.

How to get there

By Air: Fly to Nimes or Montpellier with budget airline Ryanair, and it will take just one hour to reach Anduze from the airport. Just a little further away (two hours drive) is Marseille, and there is also Carcassonne at around three hours drive. By Rail: The fast train from Paris to Nimes takes just three hours. By Eurostar/TGV: You will need to make one change on this journey from London to Nimes.

Property prices and availability in and around Anduze

Anduze is a very popular village, which benefits from its position in the South of France, just next to Provence. The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny, and all these factors keep property prices high. It is possible, however, to buy a small character property without breaking the bank, and this lovely village is certainly a wonderful location for that French dream home.
