Local guide and map for Self catering holidays near Uzes, Provence France
This is Provence as it used to be: unspoiled, uncrowded - just lovely. Perfect in summer - vibrant and lively with constant clear blue sky and warm temparatures. However, it is at its loveliest out of season with an abundance of pure clear air and light. Even in winter the sun continues to shine most of the time. If you are looking for somewhere inspirational to take time out to write, paint or just "be", come and visit us for an extended stay between October and the end of May and become part of the real Provençal way of life.
Easily accessible from Montpellier, Nîmes and Marseilles airports, equidistant between Nîmes and Avignon, Lussan provides a perfect holiday location for all interests.
Within the village there is a post office, small general shop and two restaurants,. Fresh baguettes, croissants and pastries are delivered straight from the oven to the basket on your front door every day; free-range organic eggs from our own chickens and other organic produce avilable
The nearest town, Uzès - France's oldest duchy - is about 15km south of Lussan and here can be found many cafes and open air restaurants as well as the famous Saturday market. The vibrant cities of Avignon, Nîmes and Orange, with their Roman sights and internationally-acclaimed music festivals are about 45 minutes drive. The spectacular Pont du Gard, a Unesco World Heritage site, is only 20 minutes drive away.
For wildlife enthusiasts the area abounds in unique habitats; the mas itself sits in 7 acres of of gorgeous gardens and unspoilt meadowland, alive with colourful butterflies attracted by the wild herbs typical of Provence, as well as rare bee orchids in the spring. Regular visitors also include kites, buzzards, eagles, vultures, wild boar and a host of other wildlife. The wild open spaces of the Camargue, famous for its white horses and pink flamingos, are about 75 minutes away.
Off season the area can be seen at its very best, with spring and autumn being particularly beautiful, and winter very short - cold but sunny. Extended off-season lets will appeal particularly to bird-watching enthusiasts, where the spring and autumn migrating periods are of particular interest. With an abundance of pure, clear Provencal light, the quieter off-season months will attract artists or anyone just wishing to experience the "real" France.
