On a tiny village square, this early 17th century former artist’s home, dotted with pale green shutters is unassuming, yet inside is magnificent. It’s a beautiful example of harmonious interiors and respect for historical architecture: stone ceilings are vaulted, colours are muted and antiques and contemporary furnishings interlace flawlessly.
Your host is passionate about food: wake to seasonal fruits, yogurt, home-made rye bread, pastries and jams or a smörgåsbord of meats and cheeses, foraged herbs, nuts and vegetables. Dinner is equally moreish: a Mediterranean-Middle Eastern fusion.
Bedrooms mirror the peaceful elegance – light-filled and considered; one has a free-standing tub, all have carved stone sinks. The saltwater pool glistens in the walled garden, with many secret spots to relax in. It’s a quick drive (6.5km) to Uzès for shopping, restaurants and markets; return to aperitifs and dinner under the wisteria pergola.
