About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Gard is part of Languedoc-Roussillon, which covers a large part of southern France from the Rhone valley all the way round the Mediterranean to Spain. The Gard goes from the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, the vineyards of the Rhone valley (e.g. Châteauneuf-du-Pape) up to the sparsely populated sculpted valleys of the Ardeche and across to the moorlands of the Larzac with their flocks of sheep and world-famous Roquefort cheese. The property is located in the north of the Gard in an unspoilt region of vines, olive trees, lavender and oaks. Whilst benefiting from a dry climate, summers tend to be less "steamy" than closer to the coast, partly due to refreshing breezes. Nature lovers will be impressed by the abundant wildlife - the property is on 20 acres of land - and stargazers will adore the night skies free of any light pollution. Hikers and bikers will make the most of the hundreds of miles of signposted paths all around. Music lovers will find their favourite music be it opera (Orange), classical or modern (countless festivals in the surrounding region). There is also a world-famous theatre festival in Avignon.
Uzès, "the first duchy of France", has been a major local landmark for over 1500 years. This beautifully renovated architectural gem was designated a "city of art and culture" in 2008. Wander through the winding medieval streets to the bustling street markets (Wednesdays and Saturdays), then stop off at one of the many outdoor cafés in the shade of 60-foot plane trees. There is so much to discover from the ducal château, the stone facades of the Renaissance houses to the old cathedral with its wonderfully renovated baroque organ.

"Beautiful, relaxing property"
We stayed here for 10 weeks and can heartily recommend the property. There are 3 gites attached to the owners residence. Each is different. One has no outdoor area so those guesrs would use the space… More

"Blissful, peaceful retreat"
We arrived at Hollyoaks and were immediately wowed by the location - stunning scenery, olive groves as far as the eye could see and a sense of calm and relaxation. The property itself just added to the experience, it was beautifully finished, the perfect place to unwind and recharge our batteries. It has everything you'd want and the kitchen was great, which was good as we had no desire to leave the place once we'd arrived so cooked lots of meals in there! Lovely terrace to sit and drink in the view (and plenty of wine) and the swimming pool with its deck and kitchen area is also fantastic. Terence was a considerate and friendly host, cooking us a delicious meal and providing plenty of local information - if you do find you want a day out Uzes market was particularly lovely. Fantastic surroundings for walking and running; perfect gite - we couldn't have asked for any more and would definitely recommend this place.
