Originally a silk weaver's house. Looks out onto olive grove and hill. Wonderful terrasse, large and airy with super dining table. English books, videos and DVDs. Access to village from rear and and front. Very private (not overlooked and walled stone courtyard). Parking on owner's drive. The village is 10 minutes from the chic town of Uzes, which hosts a huge Saturday market that is probably the best in the region. An hour from the Med at La Grande Motte, 25mins from river swimming, 45 mins from the mountains at St Jean du Gard. Cities: 30 mins from Nimes, 45mins from Avignon and an hour from Montpellier. Airports: 30 minutes from Nimes, 60mins from Montpellier, 80mins from Marseilles. The owners enjoy cooking and entertaining, so the house is well-provided for food preparation, cooking and dining. Golf courses can be found at Uzes and Nimes and near the cities. A set of clubs, bag and trolley is available. Brigitte cleans the house and does the laundry and lives locally.
Julie and I bought Les Muriers in 1988 -it took ten minutes to make the decision! We bought it from Erik Koch, a Danish painter who had gone to the USA in the 50s and returned to work in relative peace and isolation in France.
We have aimed to renovate it while keeping it as original as possible. Money coming in small dollops rather than in a great flow helped to make each renovation decision well.
This is our family holiday home and we have brought our two daughters here more or less every year since the eldest was born in 1989.
Its been a fabulous place for holidays. As the kids grow older, we have discovered new things that we like -like the rambling centre at St Jean du Gard and horse riding in the Garrigues.
Always feel free to call us if you want to talk about the house.
Jeff Rodrigues purchased this house in 1980
We had liked this area for years, having camped here for several holidays before the kids arrived.
We bought the house because it is original -stone, huge wooden beams, and great outdoors areas.
The evenings witness the most spectacular sunsets but are also the most calm and peaceful part of the day, with dark evenings full of stars.
While the quality of the cuisine is variable (in the area not in the house!), the quality of the food -the raw materials- is fantastic. If you like cooking, then the area provides such variety and originality.
We have superb sporting activities -swimming, kayaking, running, cycling, golf.
Its great not to be too close to the madding summer crowds but good also to have relatively easy access to water (by the river or the Med).
Rambling in the Parc des Cevennes is great fun, especially as the people in the rambling centre are such helpful guides.
There so many places to visit -grottos, steam train, cities, architecture, bull runs, the Camargue, markets. And its great to come home to a really comfortable, well-equipped house.
Sally and Paul Simmonds "loved the house -the terasse is so useful, loved the area, loved being here!" and have been twice with their three kids.
David spent two weeks with his two fellow authors writing their third book on innovation. "Thank you so much for enabling us to be creative and serious, which is what we needed. The house was perfect for us, and the terasse gave us the space to cover every surface with flip charts and chapter plans. Sorry about the 48 empty bottles of wine!"
Pierre and Karmila have also been twice with their two girls: "the new rooms in the cave are super. We used everything -had great food, beaches absolutely superb and mountains in the summer were cooling and provided great walks. Thank you!"
