A quiet street, a pretty market town, the glorious Cévennes, the history and architecture of west Provence within easy reach: this handsome house offers all that plus good big rooms (the garden gîte is snugger), a smiling Swiss welcome and dinner by arrangement. Designer touches bring style, Ursula’s youthful presence brings elegance and efficiency and the little hidden garden is so cosy.

An unexpected gem. Perfect time to be in the south: tourists mainly gone - great visits to Aigues Mortes, Camargue, Arles and nearby towns: 3 nights perfect length of stay - we even caught the local bull running through the town. Florence does lovely breakfasts and good suggestions for activities and restaurants.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Ursula Nyffeler

  • During your stay, a local guide can accompany you by foot, by bike or by horse, providing a tour of the Camargue Gardoise region. In the wild and mystical surrounding, learn about the pink flamingos, bovine traditions and the white horses of the area.
  • Come explore; the Nimes arenas, the Arles amphitheatre, the fortress battlements of Aigues Mortes, the Pont du Gard, famous beach Espiguette, the duchy of Uzes, the papal palace in Avignon and the artists in St Remy de Provence.
  • Staying at Envie de Sud is a door opener for everyone who likes delicious food and excellent wine. Chef Ursula will send you on a culinary tour. Nibble organic food, sip local wine, taste fleur de sel of Camargue and enjoy a pastis with interesting locals.
  • You're a few meters away from an endless cycling path (voie verte). At perfectly adapted speed you discover the area. Mostly flat it's never tiring and you even have the chance to take the train on your way home. We organize your bike rental.
  • Vauvert Jazz, Jeudis de Nîmes, Fête votives... no week without a concert or an event in the area. We let you know about rare pearls: like a classical concert in Conservancy Scamandre where musicians are hidden behind trees. A magic moment to remember.
  • Ever been to La Grande Motte and visited the pyramids? It's worth to spend half a day. Explore stunning buildings and a lot more greens than you expect. Watch the busy beaches, buy a souvenir and enjoy coming home to peaceful Envie de Sud afterwards.
