Belvezet, nestled in the valleys just to the north of 12th century Uzes, in the heart of Provence, is one of the sleepier villages you might imagine.

But it's dozing half-sister, Mas de La Vielle Eglise makes it seem a hive of activity. While Belvezet has a recently opened café‚ (pizzas, oddly, but good, I'm assured), a petanque court, and an art gallery at the Mairie, La Vielle Eglise has little more than its old church as specific feature by which to notice it.

Unless of course, you count the stunning views, the immeasurable peace, the (perhaps slightly older) architecture, the ubiquitous old French man, chatting to passers by from his jardin, the communal spirit around the piscine de village, the stream, the lack of traffic, the vineyard, and that's just in the village.

As well as Belvezet, you're only minutes away from Uzes, and it's market, history, shops (and even Haribo Museum!), the Pont du Gard, the Bouscarasse Aqua Park, the Cevennes National Park, the rare breed farm at Vallerargues, the organic vineyards of Fontareches, and the Languedoc.

And in the centre of all this, lies La Grange, a recently updated two bed gite that's been in the same family for nearly 70 years.

Now comfortably sleeping up to four people, with a modern kitchen, light and airy living rooms, wood burning stove, roll top bath (from which you can look straight down the valley), power shower, king size beds, terrasse, garden, hammock and cedar hot-tub-cum-plunge-pool, La Grange really does meet all possible needs of the weary traveller, busy family or romantic couple.

At 45 minutes from Nimes airport, and only a 90 minute flight from London, there's more that enough to do, if doing is what you want, and more than enough space, if space is what you need.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Gard is a département located in southern France in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. The department is named after the River Gard and was settled by the Romans in classical times. It was crossed by the Via Domitia, which was constructed in 118 BC. It is surrounded by the departments of Hérault, Lozère, Aveyron, Bouches-du-Rhône, Vaucluse, and Ardèche.

Ales

Uzes is a commune in the Gard department in southern France. It lies about 25 km north-northeast of Nîmes at the source of the Eure, from where a Roman aqueduct was built in the first century BC, to supply water to the local city of Nîmes, 25KM away. The most famous stretch of the aqueduct is the Pont du Gard, which carried fresh water over splendid arches across the river Gardon.

The present-day city retains the trace of its walls as a circuit of boulevards. A Capuchin chapel, built in 1635 to house the mortal remains of the dukes, occupies the site of a 1st century AD temple dedicated to the first Roman Emperor, Augustus. There are monuments of the prestige of the former bishopric, and private houses that witness the wealth that the textile trade brought in the 16th century. The town is also homes to three feudal towers, the Bermonde Tower (part of the château du Duché), the Bishop Tower and the Royal Tower. The surrounding countryside was strongly Protestant during the Wars of Religion in the 16th century, which wreaked havoc in Languedoc.
