Guy Homtel: This cache is definitively deleted.
Some hackers as Deskdata dont respect the owner of premium caches and impose to Geocaching to accept their log.
I dont accept this method because that is no respect of the oner will.
Useless to be premium member, dont paid for that, you can find and log every cache because Grpundspeak accept it.
So, I prefer delete all my caches than autorise cheaters to play.
Thank you very much Deskdata and Groundspeak.

Geocache Description:


Le pont romain du XVI° siècle !

Cette appellation donnée il y a fort longtemps est sans nul doute erronnée. Néanmoins, ce pont du XVI° siècle a gardé ce nom. Il est situé dans la partie la plus aval de la commune de Saint-Martin de Belleville, dans le village de Villarenger.

Ce village était connu de tous car sa situation, et son altitude, permettait de cultiver très tôt au printemps, divers plants de légumes que les habitants des villages amont venaient acheter. On y élevait aussi des porcs et certains habitants fabriquent toujours leurs cochonailles de façon traditionnelle, en équipe, et organisent entre eux des concours amicaux du meilleur boudin.

Le village est situé dans un fond de vallée, en cul de sac. Il est le départ de plusieurs randonnées. Vous pouvez garer votre voiture à l'entrée et parcourir les rues étroites des maisons en bois et en pierre. Vous y découvrirez une petite chapelle, puis une aire de pique nique au bord du torrent (les torrents s'appellent dorons en Savoie), à proximité des jeux pour enfants.

La cache est située 200 m au delà du pont, afin de la mettre à l'abri des habitants très observateurs.

English version 16 Century Roman Bridge.

This title, given a very longtime ago is certainly out of date, however, the 16th Century bridge has kept this name. It can be found in the lower part of the Belleville Valley in the village of Villarenger.

The village was known for its situation and altitude, which after a hardy winter allowed early farming in the springtime, growing various vegetable plants that the higher Valley locals came to buy. One also bred pigs and certain natives still cure their meats in the traditional ways, highly appreciated by our visitors. In teams and between themselves, they still hold friendly exchanges for the best back pudding.

Villarenger, is situated around a no through road and is the departure of several mountains hikes.

You can park the car at the entrance and walk through the typical narrow mountains streets, between the authentical wood and stone houses to discover the small chapelle. There’s a pinic area not far, on, the edge of the river (which are called Dorons in Savoy) near the children playground.

The hiding place is 200 m further on than the bridge, in order to preserve it from the inquisitive villagers. Good luck !
