Living environment

The landscape, the light, a culture…

On the doorstep of Provence and a short distance from the sea, the Nîmes Metropolitan area is a patchwork of landscapes of astounding beauty.

Gateway to one of the largest regions in Europe, with 5.6 million inhabitants, the Nîmes Metropolitan area is more than just an area…

…it’s a patchwork of landscapes spread out over 39 municipalities that are living spaces, or “circles”, where identity-founding traditions and particularities are expressed. An irresistible quality of life begins with this “human community”. This community organises the sweet life, it expresses its own character, it flaunts with passion its Mediterranean aromas and flavours, it offers fruitful, enriching encounters…

This culture that generates enthusiasm and boosts happiness is the magic ingredient that enables the area’s charm to come into its own: a community that brings together 250,000 inhabitants, 2,000 new companies each year, an outstanding network of exchange infrastructure.

From the Cévennes foothills to the Camargue, the Gardon gorges to the plains of Vaunage, the vineyards of Costières to Roman Nîmes — this diversity of landscapes offers up endless discoveries. Gastronomy and traditions are also at the forefront of this culture unlike any other, in which you can immerse yourself fully…
