Touristic attractions and activities

Villa L'Hirondelle is  a very good base for a visit to one of the many tourist attractions the area has to offer.    Attractions not to be missed include the Pont  du Gard bridge,  the Arena of Nîmes and La Maisson Carrée, the Uzes market with its local  products, etc. In addition, the region offers plenty of opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking,... A trip to the legendary Mont Ventoux  with the Tom Simpson memorial  on its hill, also belongs to the possibilities.
