The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Uzes, is a relatively small but dynamic centre of a region of the south of France which is unique in terms of its environment, nature and countryside, its historical and touristic attractions and its 'arts de vivre'. Apart from the jewel of Uzes itself, the region contains a very varied , spectacular countryside with incredibly interesting villages, each unique. One of the most important UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Pont du Gard, is only about eight miles away which is one of the most visited places in France outside of Paris. Within an hour's drive there are several important and interesting towns and cities including Roman Nimes, the festival centre of Avignon, Van Gogh's Arles, Nostrodamus' St Remy-de-Provence, the medieval trading centre of Beaucaire and much more.
One is spoilt for choice for local picnic spots, superb swimming in a local river and Mediterranean beaches an hour away, including the Carmargue.
Transport access includes motorways a few miles away (e.g. Remoulins exit of the A7 Autoroute du Sud), airports such as Nimes (25 minutes drive from the house and with daily flights throughout the year to London and Brussels), Avignon, Montpelier and Marseilles and TGV rail links to Nimes and Avignon with local bus connections to Uzes.

While there is so much to see in the region, in reality if you have a holiday or break in Uzes itself there is really no need to leave the town as there is more than enough to see and do! The house is in the very centre of the historic heritage town in a very tranquil pedestrianised street but only minutes away from the bustling main square, home to two markets a week, one of international renown, the other a farmer's market and the square is home too to numerous cafes and restaurants which in summer remain lively until the early hours.
There are many beautiful walks into the valley below Uzes and into the garrigue (the wild countryside outside the town) as well as to adjacent villages such as the ancient pottery centre of St. Quentin, which hosts today an active contemporary crafts community.
