French work experience:
Welcome to Alès
Alès is an idyllic town and commune in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France – known as one of the sous-préfectures of the Gard département.
The town lies near Nîmes, on the left bank of the Gardon River.
Or if you’re feeling adventurous, the Cévennes National Park is close by. It’s a maze of valleys, mountains and forests, so remember your best walking boots!
Of course, Alès is not just a great place to live! It’s a great place to work, and a great place for all kinds of French work experience...
