Cool off in the saltwater pool, snooze to humming bees and singing cigales in the garden, chat to your host. A true provençal affair

The Experience

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.

Accommodation

Reviews

This felt a very special place, steeped in history and yet right up to date. The host is clearly passionate and enthusiastic. The garden and the living spaces are delightful, clean, light, airy, beautifully furnished and with tasteful colour palettes. His love of food and his joy in foraging locally for whatever is on offer promises memorable culinary experiences.

Location

The neighbourhood

A short walk from the Place du Four is an award-winning boulangerie and restaurant. It's five minutes in the car to Uzès (6.5km) which bustles with visitors in warmer months - browse the shops and its well-known Wednesday and Saturday market. It’s good for restaurants too, but ask your hosts for where to eat off the tourist track. For history and culture, don't miss Nîmes (20km) with it's fascinating Roman roots.

Local points of interest from Roman Grill

  • One of the most famous structures built by the Ancient Romans, the Pont du Gard, is only 10 min drive away. A mesmerising site that can be enjoyed, by foot, in a canoe, by bike or if you're feeling more adventurous on a hot air balloon.
  • Discover the region with your host, who will create an all inclusive and personalised itinerary tailored to your areas of interest (wine trails, most coveted markets, etc). Package includes accommodation, breakfast and all transport to and from the airport
  • Walkers can explore the spectacular Gorges du Gardon, a Unesco biosphere reserve 2 km away from the house. Visit the Paleolithic cave, the vestiges of an ancient pilgrimage site or just admire the remarkable flora and fauna.
  • Immerse yourself into the universe of pottery by visiting Saint Quentin-la-Poterie (3km from Uzès). This picturesque village is renowed throughout France for its artisanal pottery from traditional to contemporary designs.
  • Delve into the world of antiquity by touring Nîmes, Orange, Avignon and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
  • Lussan, one of the most beautiful perched villages of France, is worth a visit for its dominating views, well-restored medieval houses and old silk mills and the 15th Century castle.

Introducing

Roman Grill

Roman moved to France in 2017 after 26 years in the UK running his own café and lifestyle shop. He is a total epicurean, bringing with him his knowledge of food and foraging from native Austria. Roman welcomes guests with a big smile and lots of interesting conversation – he lives on site so is always on hand if you need anything.
