Taking place near our luxury villas in Languedoc during June
is the truly unmissable event of Les Féeries du Pont (Fairies of the Bridge),
where the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Pont du Gard comes to life
in the darkness with a series of spectacular light shows.
Built by the Romans, by day the Pont du Gard is an
incredible remnant of a bygone and ancient era, with Les Féeries du Pont
showing the monument in a whole new light.
Crossing the Gardon river that runs through the Languedoc
region, on June 3rd, 4th, 10th and 11th
the Pont du Gard will be illuminated by breath-taking performances encompassing
pyrotechnics, acrobats, special effects and music.
The fun begins at around 7pm, with entertainment getting the
party started as families line the surrounding area with delicious picnics and
bottles of wine, ready for the main event as the sun sets at around 10.30pm.
Created by the worlds best pyro-technicians, the main
highlight of the event has to be the light show, which encompasses far more
than just lights. As well as music, lights and fireworks, the pyro-technicians
use the latest in modern event technology to add features such as video
projection, flame and light compositions and illuminated characters to create a
truly one-of-a-kind spectacle.
