Avèze

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Gard

The village of Avèze grew up at the foot of the Causse de Blandas and extends to Vigan by the suburb Rochebelle. Its picturesque streets, quaint mansions once alternated with mills, farms and apple orchards that lined the valley bottoms.

The town has a large hydraulic heritage and keeps the memory of many families and figures that have marked the history of the Cevennes : the Vabres- Beaufort, Montcalm, the caver Robert Joly...
