Salazac - a mediaeval hilltop village

Salazac is a very pretty little hilltop village, dating back to the mediaeval period, and is set amid the glorious Gard Provencal countryside of vineyards and the foothills of the Cevennes Mountains. With a tiny population of just 162, this is the perfect place to find peace and tranquillity surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, yet remaining close to the many attractions of the south of France.

A laid back village life

As you might expect, village life is pretty calm and laid back here, dictated by the seasons and the demands of the vines which produce the excellent wines of the region. Salazac doesn't have permanent shops, but there are mobile shops which make regular calls to the village, and plenty of shops, street markets and supermarkets located in nearby towns and villages. In fact, just five minutes away, in the village of St Julian, there is a café, and the neighbouring village of Saint Martin d'Ardèche offers a selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

Sights and monuments to see

It isn't the sight seeing capital of the region, but there are one or two historical sights that mark Salazac's existence through the ages. Take a look at the church, of Romanesque style, thought to have been constructed on an old Gallo Roman site. The church has a fortified bell tower and lovely, painstakingly restored stained glass windows. See too the Saint Clement's Oratory, which can be visited in the summer months. Further things to look out for in Salazac are some remains of fortifications, and the peculiar scallop shell symbols set into walls of the old buildings which denote Salazac as a pilgrim town, a way marker of the route to Saint Jacques de Compostela.

Enjoy white water sports and other activities

This part of the Gard, although strictly speaking is set in Languedoc-Roussillon not in Provence, is widely known as the Gard Provencal, as it shares many characteristics with its famous neighbouring region. Places to visit locally include the rushing waters of the Ardèche River, where you can enjoy the adrenaline rush of white water sports or simply enjoy the spectacular views. Saint Martin d'Ardèche is a good place for this, as here is found the stunning "Descente d'Ardèche", a particularly notable stretch of turbulent water. Other sports available in the locality include golf, horse-riding, mountain biking and walking.

Visit historic Nîmes or head for the coast

Getting out and about, you could visit the awe-inspiring Pont du Gard bridge, the beautiful and historic city of Nîmes, the marshlands of the Camargue with their art towns, black bulls and wild, white horses, or head for the coast and enjoy a little Mediterranean life.

How to get there

The nearest airports are located at Avignon (50 kilometres away) and Nîmes (70 kilometres away), with the drives taking less than an hour. Alternatively you could use Montpellier or Marseille airports. Avignon is served by Flybe and Jet2; Nîmes is served by Ryanair; Montpellier by easyJet and Ryanair; and Marseille by Air France, British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair and Bmi Baby. The town of Avignon, famed for its bridge, has a railway station, offering another choice for accessing the village. Finally, if driving, you will find the A7 auto route, the N86 and the D901 all bring you close to Salazac.
