House Hunters International TV Show Spotlights Uzes

TV viewers stateside are in for a treat! House Hunters International is airing a show on HGTV featuring Uzes on Monday night, January 18th.

A few months ago I received an email from Erin, a new reader of the Barefoot Blogger who lives in Birmingham, Alabama. She told me she discovered Uzes through my friend Ginny Blackwell’s website,  International Property Shares. When she googled “Uzes” for more information, she stumbled on the blog.

“We have loved learning about Uzes through your blog and feel a special connection because you are from the southern US as well. We are also weak on our grasp of the French language,” Erin said in her note.

Since her first note, Erin and I have written back and forth about her visits to Uzes. Now she and her husband have decided to move to Uzes, along with their four children! Their story will be highlighted on House Hunters International on January 18th, 7:30pm CST and 8:30pm EST.

Here’s the promo for the show:

Erin and Stuart have a storied history in France; they got engaged in Paris and returned to be married. Now, the two of them have formed a large blended family with 4 children and they’re hoping to own a piece of the country they’ve grown so fond of. Paris is a bit too crowded and busy so they’ve opted for the peace and beauty of the south of France. They’re unsure of what town to settle in, but they know they want enough space for the whole family. Erin would love to move in to something turn-key right away, while Stuart is open to renovation and putting his own stamp on a property. Find out which sensibility prevails when House Hunters International tours the south of France.

At the time of the show’s airing, Erin hadn’t seen the video. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be looking for some of my favorite spots!

  1. Hi Debby! Thank you for the lovely blog posting! Thank you also for bringing Uzes to the world’s attention and especially ours!! We can’t wait to return to Uzes and to have a glass of rose with you in the Place aux Herbes!!!

    • Thank you! I’m so excited to meet you and visit in your new home away from home. I know you are going to love Uzes. There are so many people and places to meet and know. Have fun!!

  2. Brilliant! We met and had rose wine with this so charming couple last July while they were filming across from where we rented. But here in NZ little chance of seeing the program. Hope they show it in France! We can’t keep away from summers in Uzes and love Alex and Fabien at our coffee place le Provencal.

  3. Après de belles années vécues dans notre petite maison aux volets bleus dans le centre historique de Uzès, mais dans la tranquillité du Passage Le Barry, à côté de la Pace aux Herbes, celle-ci est mise en vente. renseignements : pierreandco@gmail.com ou + 33 6 – 12 90 66 02

    • Un grand merci Deborah pour ces belles vues d’Uzès et tout cet amour diffusé pour ce Duché et sa région. Pour visionner quelques images de ma petite maison sur le Barry, anciennement les remparts,il suffit de visiter : http://www.pap.fr N° A60/0019-KJT pour des photos et renseignements.
      En espérant se rencontrer ma femme et moi-même lors d’un prochain séjour à Uzès, bien cordialement.
