Bien Loin d’Ici

Nîmes, Gard
Bed & Breakfast

Your eco-passionate hosts built a glamorous passive house in the wild ‘garrigue’ above Nîmes and 3 lodges with private Jacuzzi and sauna


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Modern luxuries planted in the wild Provençal garrigue… pines, olive trees, aromatic shrubs, a beautiful dark lap pool ten metres from a drystone ‘capitelle’ (historic shepherd’s hut), a brand new eco-house built of chunks of local pine, street art lurking among the old trees in the garden: sustainability can partner with indulgence and design. Invisible, inaudible, each of the three lodges has a Jacuzzi and sauna on its private terrace, an acoustic guitar in the big room, and lots of glamour among the 20th-century musical references. Manuel and Elodie care for the details – designer lighting, classic modern furniture, high-quality bedding – and bring an organic breakfast hamper to your door each day. Lounge on the muslin-draped sofas by the lovely dark lap pool and barbecue in the summer kitchen; or set off for the humming cultural hub that is Nîmes where Roman monuments rub walls with new museum architecture and seriously good restaurants; or explore the Cévennes or the Camargue wildlife reserve on Manuel’s bikes. You can order hot or cold platters, too, for supper by the pool or in your private space.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Manuel Mamane

  • The heated over-flow swimming pool is bleach-free and 20m long, open 24/24h.
  • You can enjoy private spa and sauna on your terrace. Water is changed and heated before your arrival
  • You can leave your car behind and go for a ride with our complimentary bicycles: The city of Nîmes, “Little Roma”, and its unique Roman buildings is a must-see, only 3 miles away. If you’d rather stay uphill you can ride through the pristine “garrigue”
  • We are surrounded by major tourist spots such as the Pont du Gard, the Camargue, R. L. Stevenson’s Cévennes mountains, the medieval city cities of Uzès and Baux de Provence, Arles and the papal city of Avignon
