La Bastide D'Engras
About the home
This is a holiday for people who enjoy food, wine, culture, exploring and relaxing.
We are surrounded by vineyards producing high quality and still well priced wine in the Cote du Rhone.
Walking, cycling, tennis and golf are all easily accessible and relaxing by the pool is a joy.
The market on Saturdays in Uzes is one of the best and largest in France and not to be missed.

There is a Weber BBQ and lots of outside eating areas.
The terrace round the pool has recently been renovated and presents a very attractive area to lounge and read with plenty of shade as well as sun.
Because the pool is very close to the house, we do not let to families with children under the age of 6 or who cannot swim.
The changeover is usually Saturday to Saturday, but as the market is on a Saturday, more and more people are preferring a Sunday changeover. We are quite flexible in this regard.
The Languedoc-Roussillon / Gard region
The house is 12 km. north of Uzes, a charming medieval town with a Cathedral, a Lombardic tower and a Duchy, open for visits. Its Saturday market is famous and there are many restaurants nestling under the arches. During the summer, Uzes has two festivals of dance and music. The famous Pont du Gard is twenty minutes away and the historic towns of Avignon, Nimes, Montpellier and Arles are all less than an hour's drive.
There are wonderful beaches to be found in the Camargue National Park and white water canoeing in the Gorge D'Ardeche for the more adventurous. The Opera festival in Orange and the Theatre festival in Avignon, are renowned. This is all enhanced by the Cote du Rhone wines which are some of the most delicious and best value wines in France. The caves are always ready to welcome you to taste, and there is none of the starchy formality that one finds in Bordeaux!
The Uzes / Uzege area
Uzes has one of the biggest markets in France, held every Saturday
It is the oldest duchy in France and has been beautifully renovated with its charming squares and pretty arches.
There is a music festival in July and a wine fair in August.
The surrounding attractions include the Pont du Gard, the Roman cities of Vaison la Romaine, Avignon, Nimes and Arles, all of which have festivals during the summer. Orange has a world famous opera and music festival in July, held in the Roman ampitheatre.
Famous wine areas such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and many others are less than an hour away.
There is canooing on the Gard River and horse riding and biking nearby.
