About the Host, Christina
Quite nomadic from way back, I adore traveling and moved about a lot prior to choosing France and Uzès as a more permanent home.
Love it here and enjoy seeing visitors falling under the spell of our little town.
I do believe that I am in a good position to advise and help anyone staying in my apartment in our delightful small town in what is now my 5th adopted country and the one in which I have lived the longest.
Frequent get-aways are still on the books however, wherever and whenever the chance comes up and I now use Airbnb too for this purpose.
