This village is situated on the former Roman road that linked the Mediterranean and the central regions of France -- a road whose remains can be seen in the charming bridge over the Claysse.
A vacation resort and a special place for relaxation, it can offer visitors wooded hills, colorful plains, and wild beaches on the banks of the Cèze.
While strolling in its shaded alleyways, history lovers will not fail to admire the Clock Tower with its unusual varnished roof.
