This modern, light-filled gîte in a quiet residential area is secluded yet only a ten-minute drive to bustling Uzès. There you’ll find plenty of shops, good restaurants and a fantastic market every Wednesday and Saturday.
Gré and Wim live next door and are the consummate hosts. They’ll have a bountiful hamper waiting for you – homemade quiche, salad and local cheeses or a fruit tart – and ensure your stay is wonderfully fuss-free, with fresh pastries on your first morning, bathrobes, shower smellies, magazines and if you like, a mid-week table d’hôtes at theirs. If the dog comes too, there’s a bowl and bed just for them.
Drift off to birdsong by the pool and in hidden corners of the garden under the oaks, sip aperitifs and watch the sun set from the terrace. Borrow the bikes or wander into Saint Siffret, with its charming restaurant and bar around an old school courtyard. 1.2km down the road towards Saint Maximin you’ll find an épicerie; pop in for a coffee and pick up supplies from the deli counter. Venture further past vineyards, orchards and fields of lavender and sunflowers.
