A place to be experienced
Upon arriving in Nîmes, you will be struck by the breathtaking beauty of the landscape, set between mountain and sea at the crossroads between Provence and Languedoc.
Lying along the Rhone corridor, which from time immemorial has allowed both men and goods to reach the Mediterranean sea, Nîmes is a historic junction where Roman civilisation’s protracted settlement can still everywhere be felt. It’s no coincidence that the region surrounding Nîmes has the most world heritage sites listed with UNESCO.
Garrigue landscape, olive groves as far as the eye can see, the “Costières” vineyards ascending the hills to Cévennes…Nîmes offers a 360° of views to admire and almost as many sunny days every year.
To experience it, all it takes is a visit. But you’d be missing out on the most important part. There’s a hidden gem that can only be glimpsed through the people here. And even then, it would take some time before you could experience it fully… Because history has left a unique mark on this city and everyone here knows it: when we get together, magnificent things happen. And with some goodwill and a strong sense of camaraderie, anyone can join in and become a part of our community.
Voilà! There’s a certain magic at work here that makes life different: though each ingredient is familiar and can be seen and felt, when blended in the cauldron that is Nîmes, it all comes together into a unique and fascinating whole.
