Uzès

Uzes2

Uzes is our personal favorite hut.  It sits up slope from the gravel road, giving it a bit of the feel of the real mountain top town Uzes, France.  Each hut is furnished with a double bed, additional seating/pullout bed, cabin cooking center with stove, dining table, LED lighting, and a propane heater.  Outside, each hut has comfortable chairs on the porch, a large picnic table, and a fire-ring/cooking grill with extra seating.  And all this is just a short walk to the bath house. Please see our Amenities page for information on what else is available to our Glamping guests.   You can see additional photos (interior), check pricing, and make reservations for Uzès here.

Each of our huts is inspired by an adventure or special place to us.  Please read below for the inspiration of Glamping Hut Uzès.

Uzes

This glamping hut is inspired by a fantastic little village in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.  We were introduced to this region many years ago when Dan worked for a company headquartered in Montpellier, the capital of the region.  While Montpellier is a wonderful urban center, Uzes epitomizes the countryside, wine, markets, food and people that make this our favorite region in sunny, Southern France.

We’ve had many great vacations around Uzes, mixing culture and food with nature and hiking, all under the insatiable southern sunshine.  The region was once very important to the Roman empire and many historic sites and ruins remain.  The Fontaine d’Eure just outside Uzes is the water source which fed Nimes via the world famous Pont du Gard aqueduct and bridge.    This imposing, ancient structure is fascinating to visit and the surrounding countryside provides some great, scenic hiking.  The nearby city of Nimes, where the aqueduct ends, has a fantastic Roman arena and is very close to the Mediterranean coast for when you need a quick dip in the cooling waters after a long day in the hills.  With over 700,000 acres of vineyards in the region, wine has also figured prominently in the local culture since Roman times.  We once stayed in an old farmhouse which was built on the site of the original Roman vineyard and villa.  The restored 16th century farmhouse held many stories, but the highlight was when our host walked us through the vineyard and showed us some of the old Roman tile work that was still being tilled up between the vines.

If we ever hit the lottery, we’d love to open a sister glamping site in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France within a short drive of Uzes so that our guests can stock up on wine, olives, and a large, crusty baguette before settling in to enjoy one of those expansive Southern France sunsets.
