Sauve and its surroundings

Nîmes: known as a City of Art and History, Nîmes is renowned for its ancient heritage, notably: its amphitheatre, considered the best-preserved Roman example of its kind, its Maison Carrée, a Roman temple that now houses a museum of Nîmes during Antiquity and its Jardin de la Fontaine, a lush romantic park dotted with ancient ruins of the temple of Diana and the Tour Magne.

La Bambouseraie de Prafrance: within striking distance of Anduze, this wonderful, glamorous exotic garden is blooming with over 240 varieties of plants.

The caves: the Grotte des Demoiselles is jam-packed full of magical concretions, in particular the Cathédrale des Abîmes where you’ll find the ‘Virgin and Child’ stalagmite. The Grotte de Trabuc is the Cévennes region’s biggest subterranean network. Made up of minerals, draperies, waterfalls and lakes, venture along the 1,200 metres of galleries for an enchanting experience.
