Home Again In Uzès

 After two weeks away at language school in Aix-en-Provence, it’s wonderful to be back home in Uzès. Join me on a morning walk to town. 

Home in Uzès

It’s Wednesday. That means market day in Uzès with local vendors. They bring my favorite tapenades, like anchoïade spread, and only fresh, seasonal products.

That’s why many who make their home in Uzès prefer to shop on Wednesdays.

Wednesday Market – The market on Wednesdays in a scaled-down version of the weekend event. Most of the vendors are selling food items that are local to the region. The market is mainly in the Plaza aux Herbes which gives visitors a chance to get a good look at the permanent shops located along the main streets and alleyways. ... (read more here…)

Oh yes… mind the road. Construction is everywhere. There’ll be new walkways all around for the tourists. They’ll be here soon!

No wonder. There are so many things to enjoy seeing in Uzès …  like the Medieval Garden, the Fenestrelle tower, and the Cathedral of Saint Théodorit with it’s classic French organ. Pull out your camera and capture some amazing photos that the people and town provide. Narrow, cobblestone streets lined with 12th century architecture are everywhere.

  1. Deborah,
    Many thanks for your work on all your blogs. I share your love of southern France, but, have only passed through a few times. You have inspired me to to include a visit in Uzes to see this charming town, maybe this January, when I usually travel overseas.
    Thank you for the segment on the French health care system. Very informative. I am so glad you are getting around better after your fall.
    I would love to know where all your Expat girls gather and share a morning coffee and chat. Such an interesting bunch of ladies!
    Have you considered making a few YouTube videos where all of us can see and hear your voice along with your lovely smile? You would make your beloved Uzes come alive for all of us!
    Keep on blogging! Janet

    • Thank you so much for the lovely note, Janet. I’m so happy to hear you’re inspired to visit Uzès. You won’t be disappointed. Let me know when you’ll be in Uzes and we’ll arrange a time for coffee with friends. Meanwhile, you might be interested in joining the Barefoot Uzes group on Facebook. You can post any questions you might have. You can even arrange a meet up if you’d like. I’m aspiring to plan a regular time for us all to meet during the week. You’re a good catalyst! Maybe you can even talk me into videos. LOL!

    • I’m so happy to be out and about. It’s still going to take time but I’m getting there. Thanks for for love and encouragement. Come back to see Uzès,

  2. I so enjoyed this walk Deborah! I could feel the slight chill in the air and smell the pastries. Without drugs. Really😊 I can’t wait to do it in real life!
