They say that Uzès has the most hours of sun in France, supposed to be a micro climat. Uzès is in the middle of the Gard, 14 kilometers from the famous Pont du Gard. What a site! Uzès itself offers everything, except a nightlife. Apart from this: 10 bakeries, fantastic bouchershops, bars, restaurants and a good medical centre. Add to this a large Intermarché and a giant Carrefour on the outskirts. Tennis, golf, swimming pool. The weekly market on Saturday is a fantastic event. It is known throughout the Languedoc and Provence. What I like about Uzès is also that it only takes you 20 minutes to go to Uzès or Avignon. And even Arles (Vincent van Gogh) and Montpellier (superb student town) are less than an hour drive. I would say: go for it, it is a great experience and a fantastic holiday venue.
