THE SECRET SIDE OF THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
How I felt direct in love with the stone houses and the ancient walls overhung with jasmine, labyrinth of lanes, too narrow for cars; shady squares, where you can enjoy a glass of rose. Yes, I have to admit, I felt in love first with Uzès is the South of France without the beach or bling, a hidden town preserved in white stone. Bull’s-eye. I emerged on to a broad square filled with plane trees and café tables and edged by a squat limestone colonnade. This was the Place aux Herbes, the beautiful heart of Uzès, and to come upon it in such a happy way was a perfect introduction. Every building in Uzès is made of the same pale and porous limestone.
Enjoy the real experience of the French countryside here in the heart of Provence. We offer a 70m2 independent, fully decorated apartment on the ground floor with access to our beautiful garden. For those who enjoy peace, tranquil surroundings and fresh running streams – we welcome you to our little slice of heaven.
You have access to your own private terraced patio. It’s the perfect place for candlelit dinners or a classic
