... Fazer had chain problems ... A local Peugeot shop tried to help and in another shop I did it myself but the problem remained ... Luckily the owner guided us to a local motorshop and they fixed the problem so that I could drive to Montpellier. And it worked! After 650km and driving for more than 15hours we finally arrived at the apartment at 2.30h ... Hopefully we can fix the ...
... walked up to St Benet's Bridge – which is the Avignon bridge.
Another lovely structure and there were people dancing on the bridge. Heard the song a few times. We had a nice baguette lunch sitting outside in the Salon du The. Next we walked down Rue de la Republique looking at all the shops – tried several items on but nothing quite suited. Eventually made it down to the park for a rest and it was supposed to ...
... to any one who likes to explore french quaint villages and the countryside. I've been here 4 weeks now, 6 more to go. It's been great. Of course, not without many challenges, as is life. And hopefully, being here will be a great lifelong growing opportunity. Message me and let me know how you are doing. I'll eat a chocolate croissant in Paris in your honor. ...
... checking out all the little market stores and then sat in the beautiful square below the Palace of the Popes and had yummy crepes for lunch while watching the entertainment in the square. There were musicians, actors doing short plays, comedians, who interacted with passers by and even as you were wandering the narrow lanes two or three musicians would appear and start singing! A truly gorgeous place to visit. Along the banks of the river were many European ...
... WOW for the day. We had planned on dressing up fancy but it was too darn cold so off we trotted for dinner. Just strolling up the treelined walkway towards the restaurant was incredible. The carousel with its coloured lights in front of the 2000 year old arena was amazing and right there in the middle of town. Another wow, the restaurant was a real art treat with a fabulous atmosphere. We had decided before we got there that we would have all courses, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Marquis de la Baume Nīmes
Not really so new anymore
We stayed for the second time at the New Hotel La Baume. The last time was three years ago, and the hotel was newly renovated. This time it looked very tired and in need of a good cleaning and facelift. The building itself is very charming, an old maison that has been restored and turned into a "boutique" hotel. Many of the original architectural attributes from the 16-17th century have been preserved including the beamed roof (seen only from within the room) and the marvelous stone staircase with renaissance windows. Reaching the hotel by car is a harrowing experience, as navigating through the tiny streets of Nimes is tricky. Parking is an issue, you are pretty much left to your own at the public parking garage or on the street.
Really liked Hotel La Baume
We had a lovely time at this hotel; the staff were very helpful and friendly each time we approached them. Although the room was a bit small, it was perfectly comfortable and the bath was great to relax in after a day's sightseeing. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and would go back if I had the opportunity.
Needs a makeover
We stayed here in early February 2005 following a previous visit in 2003. Whilst the promotional rates are good value, our room was small, cold and in need of redecoration. Staff are very friendly and helpful and public areas in good condition, but at least one room needs to be redecorated!
Perfect location - near to all the main sights and restaurants, yet off the main road and quiet. Unusual and charming building. Pleasant vaulted breakfast room and bar. Staff friendly.
Will go back again
I stayed here with my husband last month on our last night in Nimes. However, we both wished we had booked this hotel for all 3 nights - our room was really stylish and the inner courtyard and steps leading up to the rooms were fantastic. The staff that we met were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay there again.
The public areas of the hotel are stylish the location good but the staff were so unhelpful. When we checked in (late May 2004) they sent my husband off to the car park which was some distance away was only cursory directions.
I was left with 3 very large and heavy bags. The two men on reception did not help me although it was obvious i could neither carry nor wheel all the bags at once. I had to make two trips to the lift and then struggle to get the bags into the lift and keep the door open. This in full view of a number of staff as was my struggle with the bags on arriving on our floor.
When we were leaving we received the same lack of even basic help. In my experience this rarely happens in rural France but it happened here. I wouldn't go back.
As Arles was full because of bull fights and Easter, I wound up in Nîmes and this interesting hotel, part of a small chain based in Marseille.
The staff was helpful and friendly and our room was comfortable but not luxurious. For the price we felt it was a good value.The open staircase is quite beautiful (which our room looked out onto). Nimes is worth seeing and New Hotel la Baume is a good choice.
