Lavender and A Quaint Canal Town  

Less than an hour’s drive from Uzès, Goudargues is known locally as the Venise Gardoise. A narrow, tree-lined canal cuts through town. Restaurants, cafes, shops, and bars line the canal along the Quai de la Fontaine.

While visiting Goudargues, regardless of the season, I love to stop at the gift stores. They’re filled with unique and traditional Provençal decorative items.

La Galantine

Plan ahead for your stop in Goudargues and reserve a table for lunch at La Galantine. On Sundays, it’s a must to make reservations. Families, especially the French, fill the few outside tables, enjoying their beautifully prepared and served déjeuner under the huge shade trees.

Did I mention there’s an antique boutique next door?

Could there be a better way to spend a day?

On this Sunday, I was entertaining one of my best friends visiting from North Carolina. While the Carolinas are known for beautiful mountains and beaches, seeing fields of lavender is a rarity. And to find a meal like this– it was a dream come true.
