Around France

December Walk Around Uzès

During the times I was away from my French home in the winter months,  I wished I could see what I was missing. I longed for a December walk around Uzès.

Now that I’m firmly planted here for a while, I’d like to share what I’m seeing. So many friends of the Barefoot Blogger have asked. So let’s do it!

December Walk Around Uzès

There’s no better place to start than at the “entrance” to town. It doesn’t matter how many times I pass this spot. The view of the Fenestrelle never fails to take my breath away.


Then there’s this. The architects of Cathédrale Saint-Théodorit must have known the sun would show off their masterpiece.


Coming into town there are views of the Vallée de l’Eure on the right, and houses on the left. Lucky people in those houses get a front-row view. Even the cat with a balcony room.



December Walk Around Uzès – Favorite Stopping Place

When there are no crowds, the vibes in Uzès are almost eerie. Empty streets give you a welcomed chance to see the architecture like never before.


What’s old is new again when you notice it for the first time.


December Walk Around Uzès – Favorite Spaces

Nowadays, my favorite place to walk is in the public park that’s on the way to the Vallèe de l’Eure. It’s close to my apartment, and it’s where  I can get a breath of fresh air and sit in the sun. Some days there are a few people there.–  mostly teenagers sitting in groups on the ground. Often there’s no one.
