Nimes property to rent in France long term

nimes500bNimes is one of my favourite cities in the South of France. The outskirts of Nimes it has to be said, is not the prettiest. It always remind me of some American mid-west town. Full of bowling alleys and fast food restaurants. But once you get into the centre it is a different matter entirely. It really is a beautiful ancient South France town. Nimes is an 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 vocation as a textile centre, including 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.

 

Nimes long term lets, South of France

Nimes really has everything you could need for a long term stay in the South of France. Some excellent shops, culture, good TGV connections, the A9 autoroute runs right past the edge of the town. There are also some very pretty towns located within 20kms or so of Nimes that could be good options for a South France long term rental - such as Sommieres, Uzes, Anduze, Arles and Beaucaire.

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.
