Sabran 
Sabran is a very picturesque district that consists of eight hamlets, spread out over an area of rich natural vegetation. The hamlets of Donnat, Carmes, Colombier, and Combe are located on the plain of the Cèze. Mégier, Cadignac, and Charavel, the smallest ones, are situated on the plateau. The hamlet of Sabran was constructed on a peak overlooking the whole territory and the lower Cèze Valley.
 
This rural district is situated on the northeastern part of the Gard and immediately adjacent to the town of Bagnols-sur-Cèze.
 
shops The area is divided into two areas: one faces St. Marcel de Careiret and Cavillargues, the other looks towards Bagnols. Almost all daily needs are supplied outside the district. However, several traveling merchants still remain. There is one hotel-restaurant, one vacation village and a therapy center.
