But part of your holiday joy will come from your holiday setting. Vers Pont-du-Gard, is of course named for the World Heritage site that is a walk away, the famous two thousand year Roman Aqueduct, The Pont-du-Gard, visually spectacular, as well as historically and scientifically fascinating. In fact, the ancient aqueduct passed right through this town, and it is a wonderful hike to follow its traces to the actual Pont that crosses the Gard river on the way to Nimes, where it carried water to the larger population. There is a modern museum at the site itself. You will also find that swimming and canoeing in the river are popular activities to try and enjoy.
The village is active with bakery, pharmacy, wine bar, restaurants, post office, hairdresser, “tabac”, doctors, dentist, physiotherapist, osteopath, sports club and two wine producers (“caves”). Look for Patricia who sells fresh fruit and vegetables every Monday and Wednesday morning in the central square, Place de la Fontaine. On Saturdays her stall is joined by eight or ten others selling meat, fish, cheese, wine, Italian and Vietnamese produce, flowers, clothes, etc. These are opportunities to plunge into the warm and friendly atmosphere of the village by meeting the villagers, always present in the market. You will find everything you need to fill your shopping basket and prepare delicious meals.
