Uzes house description

A little corner of bliss in the south of France.

La Maison des Templiers is a maison de village constructed in the 12th century outer rampart of the village of St. Maurice de Cazevieille. The beautiful old stone home has been completely updated and offers a covered pool, Wi-Fi, entertainment facilities, a BBQ and a modern kitchen with gas range. The elevated position of the home gives wonderful views of parkland and the surrounding vineyards of the Uzege. The village of St. Maurice de Cazevieille is 16 km. west of the city of Uzes in the heart of Uzege wine country with its ever changing vistas of vineyards, trees and fields.

Upon entering the house you arrive in the sun room with French doors opening onto the terrace and pool. Turning left into the house you enter the living room equipped with LCD TV, DVD player and Satellite TV and incredibly comfortable sofas. The living room has a wood burning fireplace and the house is heated with electric radiant heaters.

Descend 8 steps to the spacious dining area with a small balcony overlooking the park and adjacent to the dining room is the modern kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave/convection oven, dishwasher, gas cook top and coffee maker. Next to the dining room is an open office with computer printer and Wi-Fi access through Orange France. There is one bathroom downstairs with shower. On the mezzanine level is the first bedroom with double bed. Upstairs consists of 2 large bedrooms with built in closets and a large stone walled bathroom with bath.

The washer and dryer are located in the upstairs bathroom. Included in the house are internet telephone with free calls to North America, Pay-as-you-go cell phone, GPS navigation unit, 2 stereos that are MP3 player compatible, sun chairs, pool floats and towels. The pool is equipped with a safety alarm system.

St. Maurice de Cazevieille has an excellent bakery and butcher, a cafe and restaurant as well as a small grocery store. It is 15 minutes to Uzes to find supermarkets and other stores. The gently rolling countryside surrounding St. Maurice de Cazevieille is home to vineyards, stands of conical cypress trees, flowers, birds and a maze of small stone villages, many of which sell wine in tasting rooms in the “caves cooperatives”.

Nearby Uzes is a jewel of a town that combines 12th century history with a vibrant village life. The town is dominated by its chateau and fortress towers in golden stone and there is lively commerce around the town square and the ring road that encircles the town. Uzes was made a Duchy in 1572 and was classified as “Ville d’Art” in 1962. Excellent restaurants and lovely shops can be found in the most amazing ancient buildings with vaulted ceilings and in the case of one antique shop, the arches of an old church. Wednesday in Uzes is the farmer’s market in the town square where local delicacies, wine, cheeses, meat, fish and produce can be found. Spices spill out of cloth bags and there is always a table full of lavender in every form. Saturday is the big market day where the town square is packed with the Wednesday vendors as well as a great variety of Provençal china, fabrics and specialty foods. The streets of Uzes are taken over as well with vendors selling everything from clothing and shoes to hats, locally made lampshades and anything else you can think of. Cafes line the streets and make a nice spot to people watch.

Within a 30 minute drive from the Maison des Templiers is the Pont du Gard, part of the aqueduct system built under Claudius and Nero around 50 AD. The area around the Pont du Gard offers swimming, canoeing and kayaking on the River Gardon and many interesting audio visual presentations on the history of the area.

The cities of Nimes, Avignon and Arles are about a one hour drive from Maison des Templiers and the Provence cities of Salon and Aix en Provence are about 70 minutes away. The beaches of Montpellier, Sete, Aigues-Mortes and the wild and beautiful Saintes-Maries-de-La-Mer are all just over an hour away. Aigues-Mortes is an interesting village that boasts a history stretching back to the days when it was the launching point for the Crusades. The Camargue with its expanses of marshland and fields full of Camargue bulls for the “Feria” bullfights is also about an hour away.

Closer to St. Maurice de Cazevieille and worth a visit is the town of Anduze, renowned for its manufacture of large clay pots. The town has several cafes and restaurants and the countryside surrounding it on the edge of the Cevennes parklands is spectacular. Anduze is about 15 minutes west of the house. A 20 minute drive east of the house brings you to St.-Quentin-la-Poterie, a charming town near Uzes that has had a recent renaissance due to its very active pottery industry. The town added “la-Poterie” to its name in the late 19th century as a way of distinguishing itself from the other 31 towns of the same name in France while at the same time honoring the local industry. There is great diversity in the styles of pottery and most studios welcome visitors. The town has a nice mix of shops, cafes and restaurants and one of the best butchers in the Gard, the Boucherie Centrale. Try a sampling of his prize winning terrines. There is a covered market every Friday and a Local Producers market on Tuesdays during the summer season. Bicycle rentals are available in the village to explore the easy rolling hills in the area. St.-Quentin-la-Poterie makes for a nice day visit.

                              Year Purchased: 2010

                              About: Jessica and Bryan work as technicians on set in the Vancouver Film Industry, mostly on big budget American feature films. We bought our home in the south of France as a place to unwind and get away from the frantic lives we lead in Vancouver. Wilson, our dog, came with us on our hunt for a holiday home and enjoyed himself in the Gard area.

                              Why Uzes:
                              The south of France has been a holiday destination for us for years and we fell in love with the Gard region on a trip there last year. The rolling landscape with its endless vineyards and ever changing vistas is charming and the village of St. Maurice de Cazevieille offers all the amenities needed to live a very relaxed life. Nearby cities of Uzes and Nimes as well as the Provencal cities of Avignon, Arles and Aix en Provence offer big city restaurants, shopping, movies and the charm of the southern French way of living. The wine in this area is outstanding.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              'Maison des Templiers' sits high in the outer ramparts of St. Maurice de Cazevieille affording wonderful views of the rolling countryside. The covered terrace pool is very private and is adjacent to an airy sunroom, great for summer meals. The thick stone walls of the home keep it wonderfully cool even in the heat of a July day. The home is beautifully appointed and decorated and makes a wonderful base for exploring the Gard, Provence and the beaches of the Mediterranean.
