Nimes is really a great choice as a destination for a long lets in France. With its beautiful Roman architecture and surrounded by glorious countryside, excellent TGV and road connections, crazy festivals and good local food and wine; Nimes is easily one of my favourite cities in the South of France. The outskirts of Nimes always remind me of some American mid-west town, full of Malls, bowling alleys and fast food restaurants. But once you get into the centre of Nimes then you enter another world entirely. It really is a beautiful old Roman town, blessed with some wonderful monuments such as the Roman Amphitheatre, the Maison Carree (the old Forum) and the Temple of Diana. During the middle ages up unto the late 19th Century, Nimes also forged a wealthy income as a textile centre. This made the town rich for a period of time and this is reflected in the mansion houses close to the centre. What put Nimes on the map was its famous blue cotton cloth "de Nimes" (thus later 'denim') that was imported to America by Levi Strauss for use as clothing for working men. Also worth mentioning is the wonderful modern art museum - Carre d'Art - which was designed by Sir Norman Foster and sits opposite the Maison Carree.

Just a word of warning, if you are coming to the South of France during the winter months, the area North of Nimes into the Rhone Valley can get extremely windy (and I mean, extremely windy). The Mistral that blows in the winter literally drives the local inhabitants mad and often the pretty little villages resemble ghost towns in the winter. Around Nimes itself and in between Nimes and Montpellier it is not so bad - the area is protected by the Cevennes hills. But it is just something to be wary of.
