NOTE: A 'Clede' is a local name in the Cevennes region to call a little house made of stone on two levels, of about 8m2 to 12m2 on the ground surface.

They were used to dry the chestnuts and on the bottom floor a slow burning fire would heat the upper level where the chestnuts would dried slowly.

You might find another local word with is a 'magnanerie' and this is like a barn where local paysants used to grow silk worms.

Both chestnuts and silkworms were a big industry in the 17th, 18th and 19th century in the Cevennes but not anymore but often the building are still there and usually transformed into Guest Gates and Cottages.

The department of Gard in Languedoc-Roussillon region has a distinctly 'Provencal' feel to it, thanks to its sharing a border with both Provence and the famous 'Camargue' march region, famed for flamingoes, wild horses and bulls.

That said, the Gard does have distinctly Languedoc-Roussillon region qualities such as the high number of historical sites (Languedoc's history is far more interesting than Provence's), the Bull fights at Nimes, and its dramatic landscapes.

In fact, it's in the Gard that the move away from the Mediterranean into a more continental, mountainous landscape begins. The weather cools the higher you climb, and the coarse river-stone villages so typical of Languedoc's Mediterranean departments (Herault, Aude and Pyrenees-Orientales) give way to tidy villages of stone houses (limestone and granite).

The vines peter out, and the undulating hills of Herault become jagged and rocky in the Gard, sliced through by Languedoc's dramatic river gorges. It all starts to feel less hot and exotic and a little more like you're in the centre of France. The food improves too, with the slightly mundane Mediterranean fare being replaced with richer food more typical of the rest of the country.

The Gard department of Languedoc was important in Roman times, and Nimes' Maison Carree roman temple and Les Arenes roman amphitheatre are two of the best examples of roman architecture left in the world - and the Pont du Gard the largest remaining Roman aqueduct. Aigues-Mortes was built in the 13th Century by Louis IX as a new port for France, until rising silt rendered it an inland ghost-town.

Today, the Gard is attempting to modernise, like the rest of Languedoc, lead by its capital Nimes. Once a rather ugly city, it has commissioned some of the world's leading architects (such as Norman Foster) to build extravagant modern buildings.
