Area activities

Swimming - Take a dip in the pool in the back yard or wander down to the river and jump in. The West Mill (Le Moulin Ouest) is located on the Gardon River which is famous for its beauty and swimming holes. The river near the mill is particularly wide and ideal for swimming and sun bathing.

Hiking - France is known for its hiking and walking and this particular region is famous for the large number of paths and unspoiled beauty. There are numerous paths to choose from and for your convenience there is a a local guide book at the house for detailed routes. Also you can start from the West Mill because one of the local paths is near the property.

Cycling - With the Cevenes mountains at your doorstep there is wonderful road and mountain biking in the area. Most years the Tour de France goes near the house.

Fishing - The Gardon on the propery is great for fishing, particularly trout. There are 2 fishing poles at the property for your use should you wish to give it a go. In France there is a law that says you must have a fishing license which you can get at the St-Jean-du-Gard hardware store but I have never been asked for mine.

Canoeing and rafting - There is great canoeing and rafting in the area. I have enjoyed rafting on the river just in front of the West Mill. Florac has world famous white water rafting with many companies that you can rent a raft from.

Horseback riding - There is horesback riding near the West Mill and also near the Mediterranean in the Camargue Beaches. There are many signs along the road for companies offering horseback riding.

Eating and relaxing - You are in France. Rest and relaxation are a requirement!

Pont-du-Gard (40 minutes E), is an amazing ancient Roman aqueduct. You can not fully appreciate its size until you are standing next to it. How did they build that? If there is nothing else you see while you are at the West Mill you should not miss this.

The Camargue Beaches (70 minutes S), some of the most unspoiled beachs on the Mediterranean. One port you might choose to go to is Aigues-Mortes. You can see wild horses and pink flamingos on these beaches. Great place for horse back riding.

The Gorges du Tarn - on the way to Florac. Very beautiful gorges with a riven in the middle. A smaller French version of a US`s Grand Canyon in Arizon except there are homes on the edge.

Restaurants - La Ferme de Cornadel, Anduze - One of my favorites. They have a fantastic appetizer sampler that is amazing, but save room for the dessert sampler - 3 scrumptious desserts all on one plate. I also particularly like the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant. (20 minute drive near Anduze)
