Don’t just journey from point A to point B. Get more out of your car rental by making a pit stop at Nîmes. Just 25 miles from Le Pontet, it features terrific attractions like Maison Carree and Nîmes Museum of Natural History and Prehistory. Aix-en-Provence, 40 miles away, is another destination that’s worth the drive. Visit Cours Mirabeau and Place des Precheurs, two top-notch sights in the area.
