When and what to see visiting Uzes
For visitors to Uzès there’s always something to keep you busy. If you’re not shopping on market day or wandering through the ancient town and discovering its charming streets and alleyways, you’re walking beside the stream in the Valle du l’Eure. Perhaps you would like to venture out […]
There’s nothing ordinary about living in the South of France. Especially in the spring, there’s always a festival , a brocante, a party or something extraordinary going on.Here are a few snippets of life around Uzès this week in the month of May.
To me Marseille’s story is one of resilience. It shows how perseverance conquers adversity.
When driving down the backroads of France near Uzés, it’s a common sight to ride alongside tall stone walls. You know these beautifully laid stones must conceal something amazing. Perhaps behind French garden walls there’s a story to be told.
When I heard there were going to be white horses racing on the beach at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, I couldn’t wait to get there.
A recent visit to Carrières de Lumières was my third experience with the digital, immersive events staged in a former bauxite mine outside the village Les Baux de Provence. This year’s exhibition is “Picasso and the Spanish Masters.” Believe me, the photos don’t do justice to the real event.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Tour When visitors to the south of France put “wine tour” at the top of their list of things to do, a Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine tour quickly comes to mind. The wine growing region that covers approximately 3,200 hectares (12.4 miles) of land in the Rhone valley is […]
Had the Barefoot Blogger had known how fabulous lavender fields are in person, I would have been visiting them much before now.
So many friends are contacting me for ideas on where to go on “girl trips” around France. Let me share the adventures of my buddies, the Golden Girls, from our tour of France and Italy. Perhaps you’ll get some ideas for your travels.
The red hills of Roussillon are an inspiration for artists, but I had no idea how many famous authors came to visit Roussillon.
A recent weekend in Marseille turned my perception of the city inside out. Now I can’t wait to return. I’ll admit, a weekend in Marseille was not at the top of my travel list. Even though it’s less than two hours away from Uzés. It’s surely because I’ve […]
Not everyone who goes to Provence makes a stop in Orange, France. I’m not sure why because it’s not that far from popular places like Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Plus, it’s an extraordinary place to visit. I’ve been to visit Orange, France three times now. For three different reasons. The […]
The French farmer who sells goat cheese at the Uzes Saturday Market is one of my favorite vendors. He’s certainly one of the most colorful. Each year he stages an event at his farm and invites the public. Having no idea what to expect and having nothing else […]
spend a weekend around Uzes
I’m feeling pretty smug these days that I get a south France holiday everyday. I’m sorry, but it’s true. I feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world to be here. Lately I’ve had more good luck to be included in the travel plans of my “blog […]
