The Experience

Be greeted by big smiles from Andy and Lyn, as they welcome you into their home. You’ll find much beauty within; the beams, shutters and ‘veneto cotta’ floors are all new, and French windows open to garden and pool.

Start your day with a bountiful breakfast: croissants, cheeses, charcuterie, jams; end it in a beautiful sleigh bed. The sunny bedrooms upstairs are for one party only, with a lovely furnished loggia (and a fridge) between them, overlooking the garden.

Medieval Uzès has its own Duc and Duchesse – visit the Ducal Palace. Sip home-grown tisanes in the Jardin Medieval; set off for Roman antiquities. Orange, Nîmes and Arles are an easy drive, as are the glorious vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Return to the peaceful garden, shrouded from the neighbours by leafy trees.

Reviews

What a delightful place! We stayed for two nights. We had no problem with finding somewhere nearby to park the car. Lyn & Andy were absolutely charming, helpful and informative, lending us a map for our walk to the Pont du Gard. They have created the most beautiful home & we found the story of how they achieved it an inspiring one. Our bedroom was large with an extremely comfortable bed. Super bathroom. Lyn provides many thoughtful touches like fresh milk in the fridge & fresh cherries! Their breakfasts were magnificent and set us up for the day. We would definitely return.

Sue, Winchester

A town-based house with a rural feel. Once inside the front door prepare to be surprised by the stylish interior and beyond the large, mature garden with its pool and many outside eating areas and patios. Sun bathes the south facing rooms, antique furniture skillfully blends with the modern pieces. The owners' artistic touches are everywhere from the paintings on the wall to the flowers in the pots. Every item has been careful searched for and has a story. Enjoy the bright bedrooms with mosquito nets over the beds, a nice touch.

Location

The neighbourhood

The house is strolling distance from the stunning Place aux Herbes, whose arched arcades house coffee shops and galleries, while the market (Wednesdays and Saturdays) is a must. Uzès is excellently placed for discovering Provence. Set off for river swims, vineyards and wine tastings, and the Pont du Gard, the most famous Roman aquaduct in the world (15km). For art lovers Avignon is a delight (40km) - don't miss the townhouse galleries of Calvet and Angladon.

Local points of interest from Lyn Challands

  • Wander the ancient streets of Uzès, visit the Medieval garden, climb its tower for the view, see the Duke's palace cheek by jowel with pretty shops selling wine, flowers, linen, all good things. People watch from a cafe in the Place aux Herbes, relax.
  • Walk or cycle the beautiful countryside. Explore the lovely Valle de l'Eure, walking from the house onto the gorge below town. Follow the route of the Roman aqueduct to the Pont du Gard through woods and vineyards (you can get the bus back!).
  • Canoe down the Gordes du Gardon from Collias, only ten minute drive away, come out under the arches of the Pont du Gard. Take a picnic, swim, watch the kingfishers dart in the water, you'll be picked up at the end and taken back to your car.
  • Be a culture vulture in Nimes or Avignon, both only 45 minutes away. Both are wonderful, fascinating and very different cities with art galleries, world renowned museums, gardens. Don't miss the Palais du Papes, it's amazing.
  • Visit perched villages. Honey stone buildings clinging to rocks. Plus beaux villages - Lussan, Roche sur Ceze, Montclusm Aigueze all an easy drive away. A little further you are in the Luberon - Peter Mayle country, with Gordes, Menerbes, Bonnieux.
  • 1-2 hours will get you to widely diverse countryside from the wild hills of the Cevennes, the salt lakes and flamingos of the Camargue, the dramatic gorges of the Ardeche and the fishing villages on the coast. So much to explore.
