The people, food and wine in the area are unforgettable; and the village has a five star traditional baker producing delicious and rare bio bread Last but not least the sun is almost ensured.
There are many attractions and place to visit in less than an hour drive.

The place offers a lot of options for sports. Starting in the house itself, we have a nice stone bassin, not enough to swim but great to refresh. There are 4 bikes available, to discover the hiking and biking trails linking all the old villages. There is also a tennis club in Uzes with clay courts. Finally, swimming in the rivers around the house is fun and quite unique. You should also not miss the kayak trip to discover the Pont du Gard (famous Roman aqueduc).
We are sure you will love this place.
