What's Ales Like?
Famous for its silk industry and the scientific work of Louis Pasteur, Ales is a lovely small town in the Gard region of southwest France, not far from the Mediterranean coast. The town has some beautiful architecture, including a cathedral, the dramatically situated Chateau de Portes, and the underground Grotte de la Cocaliere. The town is also on the edge of the stunning Cevennes region, once written about by Robert Louis Stevenson. Here, you can hike for miles along mountain paths, climb formidable peaks like Mont Lozère, or see the majesty of the Tarn Gorges. Around Ales itself, there are also plenty of attractions for children to enjoy, including go-karting tracks and horse riding stables as well as the fabulous Aquatic Park at Bouscarasse. Add in the fine wines and great food of the region, and Ales hotels are perfect for anyone seeking a true French escape.
