The Bamboo plantation in Anduze.

That fantastic garden carries you right away into a large exotic decor( 12 hectares). Even if the bambooes reign supreme, you can also admire outstanding trees( size, age...) such as sequoias, gingkos bilobas, cryptomerias, tulip trees, magnolias and camellias.

The different forms of laying out take you through different worlds, with the aquatic garden, the bamboo forest, the Japanese garden, the labyrinth, the Chinese palm-tree avenue, the garden with Eugene's pools or else the Mazel Greenhouses.

The Trabuc Cave.

That crystallised cave is animated by moving clear water that flows from "gour" ( deep basin) to cascades, from petrified flows to turquoise underground lake.

One of the largest caves in Cévennes, it was discovered in 1945 and contains the mysterious 100 000 soldiers, a unique concretion that surprisingby seems to guard that stone setting, 100 meters below ground.

The modern use of lights reveals curiosities, ancient geological features and tells of a great human adventure.

1km route has been fitted out and made safe: you can walk alone with the audio-guide( or with a guide in season). It makes you feel closer to the original environement, just like the first explorer.

The Cévennol steam train.

All aboard and close the doors! The train is leaving now!

Whistling, steam gushing, the locomotive starts slowly and disappears into a long tunnel.

Start a 13-kilometer journey through the Cévennes mountains, aboard open cars or in elegant and comfortable cars of yesteryear.

The train winds through the grandiose landscapes of the Gardon Valley. When the train stops at train stations, locomotive engineers and locomotive drivers explain the operation of the steam engine they have renovated.

You can also walk around and discover all kinds of collected objects.

The village of Sauve

Surrounded by wooded hills, vineyards and orchards, Sauve is a small village of Gard located between Quissac and Sommières 35 kilometers from Nîmes and the edge of the Cevennes.

Built at the foot of the Sea of Rocks, a karst chaos with ruiniform turrets, Sauve sits on the banks of Vidourle as its picturesque Old Bridge spans with its stone arches.

Founded in the 11th century, the old village of Sauve is a maze of narrow streets, stairs, vaulted passage and beautiful houses with Gothic facades from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries.

A curiosity of the town is the Fontaine de Sauve, a resurgence of the same type as the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. Gushing out of the rocks, its torrent is particularly impressive in autumn.

Also interesting and unique to Sauve, is its Conservatoire de la Fourche, the only place to still make hawkwood forks.

The bridge of Abarines

The Abarines bridge has spanned the Gardon for more than a century. Legend has it that the stone building, built to open up the valley, was designed by Gustave Eiffel. In 1900, after two years of work, the bridge was inaugurated. Today, during the beautiful season, it is used by thousands of cars that join Saint-Jean-du-Gard or Mialet. Stopover vacationers or relaxing place of the inhabitants, the beach located under the high vault of 30 meters high is very successful.
