Nimes close to your Holiday Home

Nîmes is the nearest city and home of the prefecture of the Gard department. From the Mas Blanc you can reach Nimes by car in one hour. She is often the goal of a day trip of our guests. The city has about 150,000 inhabitants. Already in Roman times it was a very important city, many ruins and other remains remind us of that. Especially the old town with its narrow streets and nice little shops is a pleasure to walk in. That is why the city is worth a visit. But choose a not too hot day for this trip, because Nimes lies in a valley and it can be pretty hot!

What can you visit in NÎMES ?
The Maison Carré is considered a well-preserved Roman temple. She is dedicated to the princes of youth. These were the grandsons of the emperor. Opposite is a modern museum and library. Drink your cup of coffee or a glass of wine on the top floor. You will have a great view on the city for free.
The Arena of Nîmes, was built between 50-100 AD. and is inspired by the Colosseum in Rome. It is considered – again here – the best preserved Roman amphitheater. On the outside there are 2 levels of 60 arches. Inside, this arena was home to 24,000 spectators spread over 34 stands. In the Middle Ages it was converted into a fortified village. Until 1812, two churches, a small castle and about 220 houses were established here. Nowadays bullfights, concerts and shows are given in the arena. We ourselves enjoy going there if there are concerts. The acoustics are remarkably good.
At the edge of the city center, in the city park Jardins de la Fontaine, you will find the Temple de Diane. This dates from the 2nd century AD. and served as a cultural center. Although damaged, it is considered a unique remnant of a building that was dedicated to the imperial cult.

In addition, you can find in in Nîmes:
The Romanesque cathedral Notre Dame et Saint Castor
Place du Marché
Roman ring wall (with the Tour Magne as the only striking remnant)
Musée du Vieux Nîmes, about life in Nîmes from the end of the Middle Ages
Musée des Cultures Taurines
Archaeological Museum
Natural History Museum Chapelle des Jésuites

Want to know more about our dinners, the types offered or do you have dietary requirements? Please contact us!

High season two weeks?
On the Mas Blanc the thorough cleaning of the accommodations on Saturday comes first. This is one of our strengths. In the high season we also want to be able to deliver that quality.

If, in the year that precedes your holiday, you want to reserve a holiday in the high season (2nd week July to 3rd week of August, we therefore only accept bookings for one week after consultation.) This way we are able to do a better cleaning. In this case, please contact us.

If you book after 1 January you can also book online for one week.
