The gîte du Rouquet is in the Cévennes National Park – a World Heritage Site and is also in a Natura 2000 protected zone.
In addition to the unspoiled wildlife in the Cévennes, in just over an hour by car you can get to:
The Camargue to the South, famous for white horses, black bulls, pink flamingoes and other birdlife.
The Gorges of the Tarn and Jonte rivers to the North have some rare species of plants, insects and birds including 4 species of vultures.
The Grandes Causses (limestone plateaux above the Cévennes) is one of the best sites to see orchids in France in May, June and July.
The Garrigue, between the Cévennes and the Mediterranean, presents an astounding array of flowers in the Spring and interesting reptiles in the summer.
There is a wealth of sites and vineyards to visit and numerous outdoor activities to make your holiday memorable:
Foraging for edible plants.

J'aime beaucoup rencontrer les gens et partager ma passion pour la nature, la faune et les randonnées. J'ai un intérêt particulier dans les plantes sauvages comestibles et aussi l'histoire entre les plantes et les êtres humains.
Mon mari et moi sommes gourmands et gourmets et nous vous offrons des produits de nos potagers. Il y a 50 figuiers et 30 oliviers sur notre proprieté et beaucoup d'autres arbres et arbustes fruitiers. En saison il y a des champignons et chataîgnes pour ramasser.
Je collectionne les galets en form d'un coeur - que veut dire que on doit toujours chercher pour le meilleur dans les personnes et "think positive"!
