The search for a perfect Provencal pied a terre has been going on for quite awhile. It started following a May 2012 trip to Casa Leone in Umbria, looking high and low throughout Provence and the Languedoc. It resumed in October of 2013 by casting a wider net. We scoured property for sale from the Luberon to the Cote d'Azur, heading for St. Remy de Provence numerous times. Nada, nothing, rien. Finally in February 2014, while staying at Le Muguet, I struck gold.
Others are pining for a sea view, something almost in their "blood". Who doesn't adore a sunset over the Mediterranean Sea, a glass of Banyul's in hand while chatting with friends on your terrace? (Catalonia). Meanwhile, the delights and value we find in village homes like Crazy for Cruzy, La Placette, Maison Bleue and Le Muguet are very apparent; larger dwellings, easy parking, far from the madding crowds and yet the pleasantries of village life such a strolling to the local square or boulangerie.
"Hey, wait a minute!" "What about those of us who want to walk out our door and choose from a dozen different restaurants or shops?" It was that voice which drove me to spend the better part of 2 years looking for a place like St Etienne d'Uzès, our first Urban Buzz fractional.

Uzès is an exceptionally beautiful city thanks to its city center, one of the first in the 1960's to be classified by Andre Malraux as a "secteur sauvegardé" or protected historical site. Funding then poured into its restoration and the center of town has a wonderful mix of medieval stone houses and later townhouses. Outside of summer months, the population hovers around 8500.
Bit of History
Uzès, located at the source of the Eure River, was settled in the first century BC by the Romans as an administrative site for a Roman aqueduct which supplied water to Nimes, a good 25 kilometers away.
The most famous stretch of the aqueduct that survives to this day is the Pont du Gard, a huge bridge spanning the Gardon river. It is the tallest existing Roman aqueduct and a UNESCO heritage site, as well as popular tourist attraction.
