Category: Montpellier Area

The Camargue and Gard are magical places. Today Claire tells us about three French departments that she knows well: the Bouches-du-Rhône (13), the Gard (30), and the Hérault (34), which are neatly tucked between Provence and the Southwest, and are off the beaten track as far as French tourists are concerned.

Camargue and Gard with a French-American Visitor

Claire is French-American, she was born in Nîmes to a French father and an American mother. Her family moved to the US when she was a few years old, but her first language was French. Growing up in the US, she lost most of her French, but she spent her Junior year of High School in France and it all came back. Her American life has been infused with French culture and she shares some great tips about how to get to know France like a local.
