About Elisabeth Sleeman
We are an English couple who found themselves by chance in the Place aux Herbes in the centre of Uzes in November 2001, fell for the place as so many others have done and were determined to buy a home there. We live in London and Uzes gives us a home in a world that's a million miles from how we live in England.
Elisabeth Sleeman purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Elisabeth Sleeman chose Uzes
We first saw the property in May 2002 when it was a shell of a house sitting on a third of an acre of rubble. We were completely entranced by the way the villa stood at an angle to the rest of the other villas in the locality, perched on its little mound as if it was having a conversation with the Duke's 11th century castle on the opposite hill. The villa gave us lots of rooms for family and guests, with scope to extend it (as we later did) and a garden area that needed to be planted from scratch. The garden lies all round the villa and within only a few years it had grown from waste land to offer a variety of lawns, flowers, shrubs and trees with the pool in the centre of the back garden. The garden gave us an opportunity to create our own unique outdoor space.
What makes this Villa unique
Guests love this villa, as do we, for the space it offers, the large pool with its 'beach' area, the varied garden and the seclusion. Yet it is only a 10 to 12 minute walk from the centre of Uzes. This provides a huge benefit, as it means that one can walk into town of an evening to enjoy the many restaurants & no car is needed, teenagers can safely walk into town and back and their parents don't need to drive to collect them and, if one walks in the opposite direction to the town, the fields of the open countryside are only 5 to 6 minutes' walk away. We have planned the villa and the gardens so that all can have peaceful holidays there, swimming, playing games, enjoying the sun or reading quietly in shady corners without having to leave the premises at all. Of course there are so many diversions and places of interest to see in and around Uzes, that there is no shortage of interesting things to do if one would like to leave the villa.
