“Camping/restaurant Les Moulins de la Vergne is located near (the town) Pons. The symbol of the town is the Donjon. A 33 meter high, medieval tower from the 12th century. The thickness of the walls lies between 2,5 and 4,40 meters. The Donjon offers a magnificent view of the surrounding area and is located next to the park which is created on the old city ramparts. In the valley you will see the river La Seugne flow among the trees. Next to the park is a square with two café’s where you can go for a drink and a bite.”
