Holidays in a Château between Nîmes and Avignon

Charmingly nestled in the valley beneath the medieval town of Uzès located in the Gard region of southern France, Château Bérard is a lovingly restored 19th century manor (country house) surrounded by a 1 hectare park  amidst mature Mediterranean and exotic trees.  The expansive backyard with its emerald green lawn is framed by the small Alzon river offering guests constant tranquility with sounds from its soothing waterfall located on the edge of the park. The turquoise blue pool offers guests the chance to bask in the warm mediterranean summer sun and wind down their evenings with a refreshing glass of rosé  and aperitifs or dinner at one of 3 well situated exterior dining areas.

 

Exuding charm and French elegance, Château Bérard offers 5 tastefully decorated spacious apartments situated on the first and second floors of the house offering guests fantastic views of the surrounding park and Uzès charmingly perched above the valley. Each apartment  welcomes guests with a double bedroom, kitchen/kitchenette,  dining area/salon, bathroom and TV(upon request). Apartments are laid out for 2 persons however, some apartments offer a sofa bed, or a spare room can be combined with other apartments to accommodate families or larger groups.  Wifi is accessible throughout the house at no additional charge.

Ideally located 15 minutes walking distance from the cobbled stoned streets of Uzès, guests will be charmed by the creamy limestone buildings lining the narrow picturesque streets along with cafes and restaurants. Not to be missed are market days on the  Place aux Herbes every Wednesday and Saturdays offering locals and visitors a variety of locally grown fruits, vegetables, locally produced cheese and honey, olive oil and so much more.

 

The area surrounding Uzès offers a treasure trove of attractions and activities for all tastes. Guests can choose to explore the local valley and charming provencal country homes, bike around the area or even take an invigorating hike to the well preserved Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard straddling the River Gardon.
