Les Ballades is situated in the centre of the lovely quiet village of Canaules close to the Cevennes Mountains with many walks in the vineyards which surround the village if you fancy a quiet stroll or more without taking the car. There is horse/pony riding in the village. Mountain walks are only a short drive away as are other beautiful tourist attractions such as Anduze ( the Gateway to the Cevennes ), the steam train, the Bambouseraie, Uzes & the famous Pont du Gard. The Roman city of Nîmes is just a 35 minute drive away. Good local food and wine can be found in abundance & most of the nearby vineyards are happy to welcome guests & introduce them to their many excellent wines. Canaules is in the heart of historical Languedoc. It is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries and come home refreshed all ready to face the world again. Most couples / families who holiday here find they nicely balance seeing and doing lots of interesting things & exploring the area, against long, lazy days by the pool or sitting on the private balcony overlooking the mountain you have seen the sun set here over the Cevennes you will never forget it.
