Forty minutes from Avignon, there is a stone village that sits on a hill surrounded by vineyards and orchards. This small village of Vers, built of stone in France profunde, is where your adventure begins. Walk from the village along the Roman ruins.

Surrounding Area

Vers is a small village deep in the South of France, not a tourist village. It sits on a hill surrounded by agriculture and garrigue jungle. It has a wonderful wine cave coop, and stone quarries used by the Romans. It is fun to walk through the garrigue to the Pont du Gard, the spectacular crossing of the canyon by stone built 2000 years ago. On the way, you walk past ancient aqueduct ruins, and the old church of St Pierre.

Accommodations

A separate side of my house is available, with two levels, three large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is made of stone and is more than 500 years old. The village boulangerie is right around the corner. Don't miss the fabulous Sat morning open air market in Uzes with the best shopping in the South of France. The nearby medieval village of Castillon sits perched on a hill with fantastic restaurants and art exhibits.
