How do you cap off an unforgettable twelve day tour of the South of France? By taking part in a wine harvest done the old fashion way, of course.
Taking easy day trips to scenic and historic spots is another thing that makes Uzès so appealing.
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.
Co-leading the South of France Memories Tour was the best way to plan a perfect day trip to Sete.
When some expats are choosing a place to locate, it seems to be a toss-up between Uzès and Pezanas. Here are some of the reasons you’ll love Pezanas.
It’s time for the St. Louis Festival in Sete. Gee, I hate to miss it this year. It’s always so much fun: beach time, parties and the Sete water jousting competitions. I’m in the States with family. Why now? After four years in France, I’ve learned that August […]
The Barefoot Blogger is off to explore the middle of France: the Loire Valley châteaux and vineyards.
This a republished post by the Barefoot Blogger from France Today. Why is Nimes a “must see” for Roman history lovers? Because it’s a city where you can literally see, touch and experience Roman life in France during the days of the Roman Empire. France has so many […]
What a day! What a way to end the week traveling and touring in Dordogne. Let’s just say, it ended on a very high note. My traveling companion and long-lost and found friend from grade school, Julie, and I put some serious miles behind us. We drove over […]
Sarlat. You’re the winner. Of all the places I’ve been on my Dordogne tour these past five days, I like you the best. Ok. I’m a sucker for market days. That’s how I fell in love with –and moved to– Uzes. Take a look at Sarlat! Dordogne […]
Day five in the seven-day Dordogne marathon trip with my long-time friend, Julie, was one thing we looked forward to the most– Visit Rocamadour. The village carved into a hill, Rocamadour, takes at least a half-day to explore. It is recommended you arrive early to catch the best […]
On the third day of the seven day Dordogne tour with my friend since kindergarten, we finally got it right. We narrowed down the “to do” list for our seven day Dordogne tour to a manageable number of places to see in one day. We came up […]
Day two on the week-long car tour from Uzes to Tours, through the Dordogne with my long-time friend, Julie, was hurried and hot–35 degrees centigrade. Happily we ended up in total luxury–a chateau! There are two luxuries Julie and I splurged on during our 7-day Dordogne auto tour. […]

Any who visit Uzés, France are in awe of the Château de Duché. It’s the centerpiece of the town and home to the Duke of Uzés — the oldest ducal peerage in France. If France was still a kingdom, the Duke of Uzés would rank just below “princes […]
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 […]
There’s not much that I love more than hobnobbing with royalty. Even if it’s from a distance. Each year Uzes hosts a musical event during the summer that brings in famed artists from around the world. This year, the festival brought in French royalty — Prince Albert of […]
