Walk through your front door to enter a home full of character and sunshine; this 1950’s house has the loveliest of gardens, reached via a courtyard half open to the sky: roses, lavender and a tinkling fountain in the heart of bustling Uzès.Nothing inside is as it was. The restoration is immaculate, the kitchen superb and the bedrooms spacious and bright. Stock up at the market on the glorious main square, then take lunch to the creeper-clad canopy, shrouded from the neighbours by trees.Medieval Uzès has its own Duc and Duchesse: catch up on the history in the Ducal Palace. Sit beneath pomegranate trees in the Jardin Medieval, or hop in the car in search of Roman treasures. Orange, Nimes and Arles are under an hour’s drive, as are the famous vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape.
