The Department Of Gard In France
The Gard Provencal is on the doorstep of Provence. From the summit of the Aigoual to that of the Lozere, the spectacle is a permanent and grandiose one.
An invigorating breeze brings air to the deep forests and the steep gorges. The streams, from falls to cascade, are a welcome pretext for the hiker to stop and rest his feet.
This is a land full of character, fashioned by men of character, for whom the sharing of their skills has become a source of wealth.
The main advantage of the Cevennes no doubt lies in its generous and abundant nature. And yet the architectural heritage is every bit as engaging.
The architecture, which most of the time is there for ordinary everyday uses, is nevertheless a model of integration into the landscape.
Little bridges, chapels, terraces, stairways, roofs, all reflect the soul of the country and make the Regordane Way (Voie Regordane) into a path of tolerance.
