Village of Meysse Peace of mind and contentment

Just off the ViaRhôna, stroll around the pleasant little village of Meysse. Wander through its narrow streets lined with checkered white stone and black basalt dwellings. They will eventually lead you to the old Romanesque church of Saint John the Baptist.
