This villa in Provence is located in the countryside south of France near the village of Saint-Remy-de-Provence. Avignon is a charming walled French city with history, restaurants, museums, shops and a vibrant local scene. There is so much to see; the Place de l'Horloge, the outdoor market in Uzes on Saturday, the Pont du Gard, antique market in Isle sure la Sorgue on Sunday, Mount Ventoux, the vineyards, the Festival d'Avignon in July, and Fountaine de Vaucluse. Worth visiting, Arles has a large two-tiered Amphitheatre. Built in the first century by the Romans, it originally provided entertainment in the form of chariot races and gladiatorial combat. Today it is used for bullfighting (during feria pascale), plays and concerts. On Saturdays there is a large market, one of the largest in Provence, where you can purchase textiles, pottery, art, and local goods. Arles is also the gateway to the Camargue, one of the best natural sites in Europe with an exceptionally rich plant and animal life, famous for their bulls and white horses. In the city of Nimes, there an Amphitheatre that rivals Arles in size that also offers bullfighting. There are numerous museums in Nimes to explore: Musee d’Art Contemporain, Musee Archeologique and Museum d’Histoire Naturelle. If you love gardens, you are sure to enjoy the Jardin de la Fontaine, established in 1750. It is a beautiful composition of fountains, sculpture, grottos, nooks and artful streams of water.
