Interaction with guests
I am Ursula and my job is hotel and restaurant manager. With the Bed & Breakfast Envie de Sud I have fulfilled my dream. The Petite Camargue with its lovely Costières de Nîmes, wetlands, bulls and Camargue horses has become my home of choice. All this not far from Nîmes, Montpellier, Aigues-Mortes and Grau-du-roi. Andreas, my partner is computer scientist. He is Swiss like me and works in our home country. When he is in the Envie de Sud, he supports me. We will tell you the rest of our story, if you are interested, while having a nice glass of wine in the bed & breakfast "Envie de Sud".
