Chapter 1: The First Visit

Settling in

Follow on Bloglovin

Staying in Uzes for 25 days means I want to see what it’s like living here. .. not just being a tourist.

So after three days, I’m beginning to settle in. That means I’m stocking up the fridge and beginning to learn my way around.

After spending a leisurely morning in the loggia enjoying my coffee, chocolate croissant and a Bach piano concerto on the stereo, I set out for a walking tour of the neighborhood.

Here are some of the sights within a few blocks of my apartment.

Sunday Market
During my walk, lo and behold, what should I wander into back at the main plaza, but a Sunday market! More shopping!

Check out this fabulous jewelry from an artisan from Avignon. A new BFF! (And a video: Laure, Avignon Jewelry Designer!)

Dinner treat
What’s left to cap off the day but to treat myself to dinner at one of the popular restaurants,Terroirs. The specialty, fois gras. Best of all, I was able to discretely sneak a part of the large serving into a napkin and into my bag for lunch tomorrow. Apparently restaurants in France don’t understand the concept of “doggie bags.”

  1. Great pics, Debby. I can see the weather is not too hot but maybe that’s a good thing now you’ll be cycling.

    Re. parking, there is parking less than two minutes from the house, the Promenade des Marroniers just across from the greengrocers on the corner of the boulevard. Btw, there’s also a charming second hand bookshop in a courtyard on the (very scenic) parking lot. Can’t remember what it’s called but you can’t miss it.

    • Good to know about close parking. I may check on rentals later. Just hope they don’t have to scape me off the roads cycling tomorrow. Sure to be an adventure. Early to bed!
