In April 2018, I spend 3 days in Provence, Drôme provençale, Gard and Ardèche, so I just wanted to share a few photos with you. I really love this area of France!

Below Vallon pont d Arc
Vallon Pont d’Arc is a village in the west of the Ardèche department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
The village is known and loved as the departure point for canoeing and kayaking down the Gorges of the Ardèche. Vallon Pont d’Arc is like many vacation spots: quiet and peaceful in winter and very lively in summer when the population multiplies by 10, the village comes to life and the bars, cafés and restaurants welcome visitors in a cheerful ambiance.

Below Nyons and Soap and olive oil museum
Famous for its black olives, the town of Nyons is located in the south of Drôme. Its olive grove is a Remarkable Site of Taste and its olive oil has earned PDO certification.
Nyons’ history goes back a long way and many traces of its past can still be seen today. Take a journey through time in this welcoming town, listed among the Most Beautiful Detours in France…
One of the most iconic buildings in Nyons is probably the Pont Roman bridge over the Eygues. With a span of 43 metres, this vaulted grey stone bridge has just one arch and stands 18 metres tall. The viewpoint over the river and the surrounding area promises some beautiful photo opportunities! At the foot of the bridge, old oil mills from the 18th and 19th centuries remind us of how important olive oil production has been for hundreds of years here.
