Property description

Villa La Colline is located in a small, quiet picturesque hillside village, 5kms from Uzès, facing full South, offering stunning panoramic views of rolling hills, vineyards with meandering country roads. Our home sited right in the village is accessed via a small walled path (calade) that leads through a private gate to your garden and the villa.
Surrounded by old stone walls the delightful, private back garden has a lovely black bamboo grove where plenty of sun and shade will make your lunches and dinners memorable. A large terrace offering the lovely views of the country side is accessed through 2 French doors from the living room. The house is fully equipped for four persons. It has a separate, well appointed kitchen, a bright living/dining room with a wood insert fireplace and well stocked bookshelves. There are two bedrooms (one with 2 single beds to make a King size bed, the other with 2 single beds for a Queen size bed); each bedroom has a closet/storage space. The bathroom is located between the bedrooms and includes a bath/shower and a toilet.
Located on a lower level (restanque) and accessed across the lower floor lawn via stone stairs, the large pool (6x12m) is beautifully sited, sheltered by stone walls and affording the panoramic views of the rolling hills. Enjoy the vista from the lounge chairs and the small pool house.
The nearest village, Montaren, 2 kms away has a superb restaurant where there is also a full bakery, a very well stocked super market and a pharmacy.
The splendid medieval/Renaissance town of Uzès, just 5 km away, has plenty of shopping opportunities; the celebrated Wednesday local food market and the renowned Saturday colourful market, Place aux herbes, are not to be missed as well as very fine restaurants.
Our home is very well located to take in the very diverse and rich Languedoc region: to the North, the Cévennes mountains are a great destination for hiking, canoeing and sightseeing where you can enjoy the rugged landscape with its deeply cut and scraggly rocks and expansive, wild vistas; not to be missed, the splendid replica of the 36000 years Cave of Pont d'Arc that has just opened. A mere 15 km Eastward, the World Heritage Site of the Pont du Gard aqueduct has been waiting for you 2000 years, a masterpiece of Roman engineering that once supplied water to Nîmes. Further on, the papal city of Avignon will inspire you with its famous Pont Bénézet, the Palais des Papes and the lively city life, especially in July during the famous Festival. To the South and 27 km through the guarrigue, Nîmes, France’s oldest Roman city, will impress you by the stunning beauty of the Roman amphitheater and the Temple, Maison Carrée, and its very friendly, carefully restored old centre. A few km away across the Rhône, the provençal city of Arles, where Van Gogh lived and painted, is well known for its splendid Roman Arena, amphitheatre, its colourful atmosphere and great photo art exhibits. For a different experience, a little over an hour of driving will take you to the Grande Bleue, to enjoy a swim in the Méditerranée, long walks on sandy beaches (La Grande Motte, le Grau du Roi, l'Espiguette), lunch in the historic, fortified medieval town of Aigues Mortes or to the Camargue to be dazzled by flamingos. And for some other days, just lazying around the pool, watching the swallows dance away, a glass of local wine in hand, is a perfect holiday plan.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We made the move to this beautiful region of Uzège from Canada. David is Canadian, born in British Columbia and Ghislaine, born and brought up in France has lived in BC/Canada for 35 years. Over the years we have made many trips to France, visiting family and always exploring the many diverse French regions.

Why the Owner Chose Serviers-et-Labaume, France:
For several years we have toyed with the idea of settling in France; progressively our search led us to Uzès and literally we fell in love with the town, the countryside. We realized then that the Uzège region is so strategically situated to enjoy the rich and so diverse terroirs, from the mountains in the North to the Mediterranée further South and to appreciate the vast cultural richness of Languedoc and Provence. We also wanted to live in a small village, not far from larger amenities; this made it easier to meet the local people, connect and get involved in the community.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We loved right away our small, quaint village. As soon as we walked onto the terrace overlooking the panoramic views, we felt at home. We love the well planted gardens and the old stone walls that give privacy and age to the villa.
