Nimes Holiday rental homes - Cottages Nimes

Nimes is a city in southern France. It is the capital of the Gard department in the Languedoc-Roussillon. When you stay in Nimes holiday rental homes, know that you’re entering a French town with a rich history, dating back to the Roman Empire. It has a stunning Roman Coliseum that is second only to Rome's. Nîmes is also historically known for its textiles. Denim, the fabric of blue jeans, derives its name from this city (Serge de Nîmes).

There is plenty to see and do for lovers of the Roman Empire when you rent self-catering holiday accommodation in Nimes, France. Attractions include: The elliptical Roman amphitheater, of the 1st or 2nd century AD. It is the best-preserved Roman arena in France. It was filled with medieval housing, when its walls served as ramparts, but they were cleared under Napoleon. It is still used today as a bull fighting and concert arena.

Other unmissable sights to take in when you take a holiday rental cottage in Nimes, include the Maison Carrée (Square House) - a small Roman temple dedicated to the sons of Agrippa, it was built c. 19 BC. The 18th-century Jardins de la Fontaine (Gardens of the Fountain). The nearby Pont du Gard, also built by Agrippa, is a well-preserved aqueduct that used to carry water across the small Gardon river valley. The nearby Mont Cavalier is crowned by the Tour Magne ("Great Tower"), a ruined Roman tower. The cathedral (dedicated to Saint Castor of Apt, a native of the city), occupying, it is believed, the site of the temple of Augustus, is partly Romanesque and partly Gothic in style.

There is modern architecture to marvel at when you stay in a holiday home in Nîmes too: Norman Foster conceived the Carré d'art (1986), a museum of modern art and mediatheque; Jean Nouvel the Nemausus, a post-modern residential ensemble, and Kisho Kurokawa a building in the form of a hemicycle to reflect the Amphitheatre.
