gardeadhemar1.jpgLa Garde-Adhémar is an ancient village just several miles away from our rental house. In addition to being labeled one of ‘the most beautiful villages in France’, it has not one, but TWO Romanesque churches. The Romanesque beauty atop the walled village, perched on a promontory overlooking the Rhone, is Eglise of St. Michel. It is notable for its three naves.

And the icing on the cake for this church is that terraced below it is a delightful and very French botanical garden. Stay tuned for Le Garde Adhemar, Part 2.
