Goudargues - the Venice of the Gard

Goudargues, a peaceful old town that is found in the south of France in the ancient department of the Gard, is often known as the Venice of the Gard, due to its lovely canals that create a cool and pleasant ambience in the town. These canals were created by the monks from the nearby abbey, from the natural spring waters that flow abundantly here. They are a perfect spot beside which you can stop to reflect, or to take lunch at one of the delightful canal side restaurants.

Southern pleasures

All the pleasures of the south are here in Goudargues, and despite being officially located in Languedoc-Roussillon, there is an unmistakeably Provençal feel to the town. The sun-faded stones and paintwork of the houses, the huge towering plane trees providing welcome shade to the ancient dusty streets, all of these add to the delightfully Mediterranean atmosphere and ambience.

The charms of Goudargues

The charms of Goudargues are manifold, and you won't need to spend long in town before you are utterly captivated! The canals, the old streets and houses await your discovery, but also there are good amenities to make life easy and to spare you the hassle of travelling to a large town for the everyday necessities. There is a market held on Wednesdays, and this is as joyful and colourful affair as any French country market, with fresh local produce vying for attention alongside local crafts, clothes and plants. There are good small shops selling all the basic requirements, and even a pizzeria for those informal nights out.

Out and about

Getting out and about from Goudargues is no problem, and there are plenty of places to go and things of interest to see. The Med, of course, is not far way, and you have the historic city of Nîmes or the bustling Montpellier to visit when you fancy a slice of city life. Don't miss out on the beautiful countryside around the town either... explore the olive groves to the east, the gorges to the west and north, and take advantage of all the exciting adventure sports on offer in the region too. If canyoning, rafting and climbing are a little too adventurous for your tastes, however, you can always hire a bicycle, a horse or simply take to shank's pony to explore this beautiful region.
