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-Pont-du-Gard (pop. 2000) has quarries that were the source of the stone for the Roman bridge-- the Pont Du Gard (the ninth wonder of the world) which is a 40 minute walk away.
