After Paris, we headed to a tiny village in southern France called Saint Siffret, just outside of a somewhat larger town called Uzes. My neighbor when I was growing up has a house in the village and recommended a long list of things for us to do. (Last year we had Rick Steves, this year we had Ron. I think Ron wins.)
We rented a fantastic house that became home base. Everyday we slept in, got a late start, and then drove to our attraction of the day. The perfect vacation for two pregnant ladies. This was taken at a tiny town we stumbled across on one of our drives.
Some ancient ruins you can drive up to (if you have really good 4 wheel drive...I've never been on such a crazy road.) We were the only ones there and it was amazing to be able to walk in and around them.

There was a beach and a swimming hole under the aqueduct. I really wished I had my bathing suit.
Ron recommended we go to a local bullfight. One where the amateurs try to remove a ribbon from between the bulls horns, one that is non-violent and the bulls are the stars. We asked the tourist office to direct us to one of these "

Yes, we definitely love France and hope to go back soon!
