The « Plaine de la Vistrenque » is a wide plain in the Gard department where flows the Vistre River. It goes from Nîmes on the East side to Lunel on the West and lies between the Vaunage on its North and the Costières on its South.
This is a busy plain with a lot of agricultural activities, a few industries -including the world famous Perrier water spring and production- and many commercial areas. This is also where some of the major regional lines of communication are situated (A9 motorway, N113 road, and the railway).
