From Nimes to Pont du Gard
Let's take the "chemin des ecoliers" via the little roads and villages with the singing names of Rodilhan, Manduel, Meynes and Remoulins to end up to another vestige of the Roman Empire grip on the region, the famous three level aqueduc called Pont du Gard as it crosses this impetuous river across a fairly wide valley.
Pont du Gard
Uzes is fast becoming the alternative to St Remy de Provence, as the price of real estate is still accessible and properties are still not renovated, so there is a potential upside on the way.
It is a "circular" village, as the fortifications have long been replaced by a circular road planted with the traditional platanes (plane trees) and lined up with nice cafes and restaurants and an inordinate number of banks!
It is not as bad as Luxembourg, though, where banks alternate with pastry shops siphoning your money into tasteful delights and dreadful calories...
Uzes is also famous for their pots with two factories competing for your trade!
