Located in a hamlet between Uzès and Nîmes, this impressive maison de maître (master’s house) has been renovated to an impeccably high standard. Laid out in a horseshoe shape, around a beautifully manicured courtyard with a swimming pool, the property is divided into the main house and its outbuildings – the latter have been turned into very desirable summer quarters. The main house offers 300sqm of living space and features two ground floor reception rooms opening onto the courtyard and garden, a large kitchen, two en suite bedrooms – one a master – and an office on the first floor. The second floor features a third bedroom, a TV room and an attic.
On the other side of the courtyard lies the maison’s outbuilding, also constructed of traditional stone, which offers a beautiful vaulted ground floor of 72sqm that is currently used as a summer reception room, plus a utility room, a cellar with a wine tasting corner and a large garage. The first floor of this charming and versatile building boasts the additional benefit of three large, very high-ceilinged rooms.
This property is situated near the meeting point of two of France’s most popular southerly regions, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA) and Languedoc-Roussillon, which makes it an excellent choice as a holiday home or permanent residence.
Nearby lies the authentic Provençal town of Uzès, steeped in history since Roman times. A walk around the town’s medieval streets reveals Renaissance palaces, a famous ducal heritage and one of Provence’s most loved produce markets. Across the regional border you’ll find Nîmes, the capital of the Gard département, which proudly displays its Roman history via well-preserved temples and amphitheatres. In later centuries, Nîmes benefited from the wealth of its merchant class – partly generated by serge de Nîmes, better known as denim – which helped to make it an attractive and inspiring town.
