Saint-Jean du Gard

1 hr 18 from Nîmes. Stop: La Poste. The Camisard country's "little capital" on the Gardon riverbanks expanded on the main road known as the Corniche des Cévennes between Anduze and Gévaudan.

The former silk making town has held onto a landmark in the Cévennes' industrial heritage: the Maison-Rouge spinning mill, now home to the Cévennes Valleys Museum. It's also a popular hiking spot as Saint-Jean du Gard was the last stage on Robert Louis Stevenson's trek from Le Puy en Velay in 1878. The visitor centre provides a wide range of hiking trails for all abilities, so you can soak up this fantastic area too. Find out more.
