Further details outdoors

Parking is not supplied by us, but by the municipality. There is a covered parking Gide 300 yards from the house and a free parking lot 500 yards from the house. The town has a swimming pool and tennis courts.

Uzès has a market on Saturday and a organic market on Wednesday (150 yards from the house). The Saturday market is renowned and is both fun (music, a mime, etc.) and busy. Because of this we use Friday as a changeover day and then you can go to the market on Saturday.

Uzès is a lively medieval town, distinguished as the first Duché of France. With it's fine chateau and various towers and fortress buildings dating from the 12th century, it has been a national protected site since the 1950s. 100 yards from the Maison Foussat is the huge "Place aux Herbes" with outdoor cafés and a huge market each Saturday, as well as a smaller organic market on Wednesdays. The town is full of shops and restaurants; there are a number of banks, a bus station, and a cinema. Uzès is also the home to several summer festivals, including a modern dance festival and several types of music.

Uzès is surrounded by picturesque towns and villages, each with it's own character. St. Quentin la Poterie, a village 3 km away is known internationally for it's pottery studios and pottery museum. A 15 minute drive brings you to the Pont du Gard - a world heritage site. It is an enormous bridge - part of a Roman aqueduct that carried water from the springs in Uzès to Nimes. Both Avignon with the Palais des Papes and a fantastic summer festival, and Nimes with it's superb Colleseum are within a 45 minute drive. Arles, the town of Van Gogh, Orange with the Arausio - an intact Roman Theater, the Camargue with its famous "chevaux blancs", the beaches of Montpellier, the Luberon, and the Cevennes are all just an hour or so away. Also nearby is the beautiful gorge of the Ardèche,.

There is wonderful bathing in the Cèze or in the Gardon at the Pont du Gard. Kayaks and canoes are available at the Cèze and the Gardon; longer rafting trips take place on the Ardèche. The country roads are perfect for bicycling, and are small country lanes and paths for walking.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The climate is semiarid. The summers are warm but cool in the evening.

Originally Ucetia, Uzès was a small Gallo-Roman oppidum, or administrative settlement. The town lies 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 Cathedral was destroyed in the Albigensian Crusade, rebuilt, and destroyed again in the 16th century Wars of Religion. Rebuilt again in the 17th century, it was stripped out during the French Revolution. The 11th century Romanesque Tour Fenestrelle ("Window Tower"), with its paired windows, is probably the most famous icon of the city.
