Towns of Interest 1

Interest and Fun filled days.

When in the region of Avignon take a day and let EuropeDriving interest you to some of the magical towns within an hour’s drive:- Try Uze’s, a hidden gem with interest nestled under the tall Plain Trees the triple storey houses surrounding the market squares, all lined with interesting and unique shops having high standard of Boutique outlets.

Following visits to the side walk cafe’s, teddy bear shop, interior pot-plant shop, it’s time to find your place in either – Place Albert, with its 1635 chapel, built in the old corn market and named after the King of Belgium, Albert 1st. post WWI.  Or Place aux Herbes (a lively spot of interest on market days) for a summer lunch, while people watching or watching the bird’s dodge the water drops from the fountain.

Following a leisurely morning and lunch its time to get the muscles going by joining the ripples of the river Gard. Hire a kayak for a 60-90 minute trip down river. Paddling with interest under the Historic monument of the Pont du Gard, it is an experience well worth the effort, the river has its fast and slow flows with large fish and local birdlife visible. On completion, a Kayak company vehicle meets you at the rendezous point and takes you back to our vehicle. After visiting the official monument site of the Pont du Gard  we drive back towards our nights accommodation stopping enroute for a local dinner under the vine laiden patio.
