Property description

The villa has three beautiful double bedrooms at one end of the house and a fourth sleeping area with a comfortable sofa bed to sleep two adults on a mezzanine floor overlooking the dining room. Each bedroom is well furnished including built in cupboards for hanging and storage purposes. Two bedrooms have double beds and the third two single beds. There is a large bathroom with toilet and a separate shower room. A second toilet is located in the laundry room below the mezzanine. There is a medium sized fully equiped kitchen with table and four chairs. The bright and spacious living room leads out through patio doors to the veranda and terrace and also extends into a large dining area and adjacent laundry room. The mezzanine is situated above the laundry room. Outside the dining room there is a BBQ area with portable charcoal burning barbecue. The villa is attractively furnished and decorated throughout. Parking is available for one car within the grounds but there is additional parking alongside the property.

The area is perfect for swimming and canoeing in the Gardon at Collias (20 mins drive away) and at the Gorges de l'Ardeche which is an hour and a half's drive. The Gorges offer an unforgettable experience not only with the canoeing but also from the scenic drive around the area. It is always best to travel from West to East along the road overlooking the Gorges as this provides the best viewing and easy stop off points for photos.

Uzes itself is a photographer's paradise. There are photos to be taken around every corner. The Saturday market is a must - you will not be disappointed but best to get there early before the crowds. The surrounding villages will entrace you. The village of St Siffret is a delight to walk around. Try not to miss out on the fortified village of Lussan set high up on a hill with its 180 degree views of the surrounding countrside, Gourdagues with its canal and the quaint medieval village of La Roques sur Ceze .

The villa is also ideally situated using a back road via St Maximin (an attractive village in its own right) to get to the Commercial Centre outside of Uzes (8 min drive) where there is a large Carrefour and other superstores. On a clear day, this road offers splendid views to the far off hills of the Cevennes. Incidentally, do not miss out on the fantastic value for money luncheon menus at Carrefour. Maybe not an obvious tourist attraction but for feeding a large hungry family, it can't be beaten for quality,venue and service.

Back at the villa, its quiet, private but not isolated position offers a lovely refuge for the tired sightseer. The pool, attractively positioned amongst the olive trees, will add enormously to the enjoyment of your holiday. At the back of the garden there is a quiet patio with table, chairs and parasol for any member of your party keen to enjoy a quiet moment on their own.

In order to keep the garden tidy, a gardener will come once every 10 days or so principally to mow the lawn. The pool will be cleaned and monitored once a week.

St Siffret is a quiet and charming ancient village with its own supermarket and two quality restaurants nearby. From the village you can enjoy lovely views of the surrounding hills. Our villa is situated on a small hill above the village and only 4 kms from Uzes, a renowned medieval town with a population of around 8,300. The town hosts one of the most colourful markets in the South of France and offers charming streets, cafes, restaurants and two museums to delight children of all ages. It is situated about 20 miles from Nimes and 30 miles from Avignon. The attractive town of Montpellier with its open and pedestrianised shopping centre is a mere hour's drive away.

There is plenty to see and do in the area including the magnificent Pont du Gard, the Roman amphitheatres of Nimes and Arles, the Palace of the Popes at Avignon and the fortified town of Aigues Mortes and the region of the Camargues. The river Gardon and the Gorges de L'Ardeche offer good swimming and canoeing. Cycles can be hired in nearby St Quentin La Poterie so as to explore the multitude of attractive villages in the area; and there are also walking and horse riding facilities


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Following my early retirement in 1999, I have been living in Chiswick ( West London) but spend a few months every year in Australia and New Zealand where I have close family connections. I am also fortunate enough to have a family cottage in the Cotswolds where I spend most weekends. I come to France and the villa with members of my family several times in the year but principally in the Spring and late Summer

Why the Owner Chose Saint-Siffret, France:
I loved the location of this villa the moment I saw it. It is situated on top of a hill with attractive views of the surrounding countryside around the quaint village of St Siffret. It is quiet and private. The garden with its beautiful olive trees and oleanders together with the pool are both the right size to manage. I was also very much attracted to the crazy paving that surrounds the property. The distribution and size of the rooms within the villa provide a great sense of space.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The property is enclosed by a high wall which provides excellent security. The villa is positioned equally between the Zone Commerciale to the west of Uzes and the centre of Uzes itself. So you have a great choice of destination with little traffic to contend with.
