Cevennes National Natural Park The Cevennes National Park is mainly located in the departments of Lozere and Gard, and Ardeche and Aveyron too. More than 40,000 people live in these highlands with 1,000m of average altitude. A rich flora (2250 species) and a diversify fauna (2410 species) will fill you with wonder through the 4,000 kilometres walk.
The towers and ramparts of Aigues Mortes - well worth a visit for the view over salt pans in one direction and pretty canals in the other. In summer this place sweats. Find Restaurant le Minos on Place Saint Louis and order their rouille - it's superb.
