About the neighbourhood
About as centrally located as you can possibly be in Nimes, this is the ideal base for exploring the surrounding region (Languedoc, Provence, the Camargue and Cevennes). There is a large underground car park with pedestrian access just outside the apartment building. Motorway access is only 10 minutes away and the central TGV station puts Nimes under 3 hours from Paris. Ryanair flies to Nimes from Luton, Liverpool and Brussels. There are also flights from Rome and Palma.
Getting around
If you don't have a car there are still plenty of opportunities of getting around. There are frequent trains to the coast (Aigues Mortes - the walled medieval town) and the Grau du Roi (fishing port with lots of seafood restaurants). What's more, as these towns are in the same 'Département' you can get a return ticket for 2 Euros! You can also get trains to Arles, Avignon and Montpellier Bus services can also take you to the Pont du Gard (Roman Aqueduct) and Uzes, a charming Medieval town with a famous market on Saturdays.
