Dear travellers I've finally retired please send me an email if you need to contact me.  Safe travels, Martin

 Near the edge of a Provence in Southern France, there is a village that sits on a hill, surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees. The small stone village of Vers-Pont-du-Gard (pop. 2100) has quarries that were the source of the stone for the famous Roman bridge aqueduct-- the Pont Du Gard (built 2000 years ago) which is a 40 minute walk away.
 The upper floor of the old stone house has two bedrooms (sleeps up to 7) and one bathroom and the lower floor has a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The lower floor is reached by stone stairs up from the courtyard.

Ask about guided hikes with Martin to the Pont du Gard, a tour of the village, the amazing stone quarries, or down to the Gordon river for swimming or to canoe under the Pont du Gard. There are two caves in the village for wine tasting. There are 4 restaurants in the village to choose from. Bikes are available for 7 to ride to the river, visit the nearby villages-- including the medieval village of Castillon nearby, made of stone perched on a hill.  You could ride all the way to Uzes (50 minutes) to visit the best open air market in the world-- Wednesday and Saturday mornings.  Washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, sheets, towels, bathroom accessories, etc. included. Free wifi.

Arles (where Van Gogh did his most famous work) is a 45 minute drive away. See the summer sunflowers in bloom on the way. The cave Chauvet-Pont d'Arc has prehistoric wall paintings. Did you know the Pope resided in Avignon for 70 years? Visit the luxurious Palace of the Popes. Gordes-- the suspended village overlooking Provence-- is nearby. You could go to Chateauneuf de Pape, the winery of the Popes, to find world-class wine. How about visiting the Roman stadium in Nimes? 30 minutes by car.
