Outstanding opera house within a charming apartment in the centre of the city. What a surprise and what a pleasure! Hope to come back soon.

Thank you Gordon.

A warm and welcoming spot—spacious, unusual— as if the walls throw back voices and music…

Nimes is a clean and gorgeous town, and for me the locals are in general polite and helpful.

Un posto più unico che raro dove gli amanti della bella musica non potranno che trovare il loro regno! Situato nel centro della città, permette ogni tipo di movimento senza usare l''auto. Simpatico e disponibile Mr G.!" Una location veramente particolare giusta cornice per un musici. Non potevo chiedere di meglio. Compliments !

We had a lovely time in Nîmes. From here we visited Arles, Ayignon and the Pont du Gard, but we liked Nîmes best of all.

We had a very good time.

Thank you Gordon, For the opportunity of staying in your gorgeous apartment. It was great to spread out, feel at home and do some washing!

Your apartment is beautiful, spacious, immaculately decorated  and well-equipped. The location is perfect, so close to everything, especially the fantastic food market! Love it! Nîmes, Provence and surrounds have been awesome. Thanks for the warm welcome and very best wishes,

Vous avez une énorme sensibilité et beaucoup de goût. Ce que vous faites en est le réflet. C’est un plaisir!

On se rappellera de l’art déco opéra et de notre séjour à Nîmes. Les murs de ce logis vibre du son romain et toute la ville semble puiser son inspiration à la meme source.

We stayed in the apartment for one week in May of this year and had a wonderful time. The location is without equal, the area is wonderful, the surroundings are perfect. The apartment was a total delight with excellent facilities and everything we needed for our stay. It is spacious, stylish and we will return. A five star holiday in a five star location.

A deux pas de la Maison Carrée fraichement rénovée, à proximité des arenes, du très agréable jardin de la fontaine et des commerces de proximité (marché couvert ouvert tous les matins toute l''année, carrefour market, fnac...), appartement vaste et fonctionnel au 1er étage d''un immeuble qui a du cachet! Le centre ville est propre, ceux qui ont le sommeil léger pourront donc être réveillés par la laveuse de rue, mais ce bruit reste éphémère. Se garer est difficile, voire impossible: opter pour un ticket de plusieurs jours à un prix très raisonnable dans le parking souterrain et surveillé de la maison carrée, à 100m de l''entrée de l''appartement, très pratique! Le propriétaire est très accueillant! C''est un bon endroit pour rayonner dans Nimes!

Wonderful apartment, great place to spend Christmas, Gordon had even put up a tree for us! Very warm and comfortable especially beds! Great decor and very well equipped. The location couldn't be bettershops Roman Temple and Amphitheatre very close. The food hall alone worth visit to Nimes and the staff there the most delightful and charming, even at a busy time like Christmas (plus having to deal with my schoolgirl French). Also a visit to Operadou for Nutcracker on our final night perfect ending to a marvellous trip. Superb trip back to Paris on TGV - only 3 hours. By the way women travelling with big suitcases, try and look pathetic and then like us youll get a big strong Foreign Legionnaire to lift cases onto train. Great Chaps - now a fan, wonder if women can join up and do you get own camel? 5 stars isnt enough for witty Gordon, the apartment and beautiful Nimes. We'll be back.
