Here are some of the sights that are typical — and some not so likely — this time of year. The scene: the center of the village — the Place des Herbes.
Studies say the best time to learn a new language is as young as six months.
Beyond the La Tour Fenestrelle is a terrace that overlooks the Vallée de l’Eure and the public park.
My first morning’s walk has already reaped benefits. It led me to a part of Uzes I’ve never explored and to an interesting “Village Scene.”
My bonne chance this week was visiting a friend in Nimes who lives only a few blocks from the Stage 15 finish of the Tour de France.
You only have to go outside your door in Uzes to find a world of entertainment and friendly people.
My friend, Geoffrey, has turned part of his garden in Uzes into a barnyard
The parking lot that my apartment shares with the Château du Duché is closed to traffic once a week through August. An ongoing festival, clearly for the benefit of tourists, is staged one evening each week to draw visitors to the village.
A return to the Romance Era of French fashion is not a dream. It is alive and more appealing than ever for summer. Thanks to L’Atelier des Ours in Uzes, France for the inspiration for this post on Bohemian Chic style.
So it begins… Following the adventures of the Golden Girls on the whirlwind tour of France and Italy is going to be a challenge. We are 3 crazy, fearless women who have more energy and curiosity than we should at this age. Day 1-4 After missing the flight […]
When expats told me living in France draws lots of visitors, I had no idea how true it is. Since returning to Uzes in April, friends have come to see me that I haven’t seen in years…and I love it! After a two–day visit with a friend I […]
Imagine revisiting the Roman Games of Augustus Caesar’s time. Now place yourself in the very spot where the “games” were actually held. Then add the fanfare, color and a raving crowd. Such just happened this weekend in the Arena in Nimes, France. Battle reenactments are popular in the […]
It’s officially tourist season in Uzes. By the first of May all of the shops that closed for winter are open. The town is becoming lively again with art shows and fun things to fill your day. Last week I was off to visit Geoffrey to resume our […]
Saying farewell to family and friends in the US for the next chapter of “single living in France.” It’s been almost four months since I left my adopted home in France. As excited as I was to get to the States for the holidays and the birth of […]
Time to think seriously about getting back to France. A bout with shingles, the birth of a first grand-baby, and a bunch of happenings that would make great stories to share have kept me quite busy the last few months. But since most of you joined the adventures […]
Two days is never enough time to spend in Paris. Perhaps I tried to squeeze too much into my senses, because my brain definitely went into overload. All went perfectly as planned for my short visit to Paris. The only small mess-up happened when I realized the AIRBNB […]
I’ve been trying to decide how to write that I got homesick and came home from France for a visit. There! I just said it. If you think I’m a “fearless traveler” who can take off in a moment’s notice and take on a life-changing journey, you’re right. […]
One of the main reasons I moved to France was to experience the French way of life. What I’ve learned so far has given me eco-friendly, economical and sure-fire ways to solve some vexing problems … like how to: 1. Treat cold sores Remember hearing about the “medicine man” […]
When I was first considering the move to Uzes, France, a new friend mentioned the “wind” in the winter, Le Mistral. Since she chooses to return to her home in London each year from late September until April, I figured the “wind” was a convenient rationale, rather than […]
Now that I’m settled in France, I’m beginning to understand why I love it here. I’m a hopeless romantic. It didn’t happen by accident that I live in a tower apartment. I’m a princess. Or at least, I always wanted to be one. If I had long hair, […]
