Next year we were planning to stay in Nimes for a few days around the 3rd weekend in September, however we now understand that this time will coincide with Feria des Vendanges.
We are from New Zealand and we just want to experience a smallish french village while on TGV route to Barcelona. During this weekend we imagine that Nimes won't be the usual everyday Nimes and that accomodation prices will by much higher than usual. Is that correct?
Should we plan to base ourselves in Avignon or one of the other towns to the south along the TGV line?
