About the house
Le Citronnier is a 12-minute drive from the exquisite, historic town of Uzès, past apricot orchards and a Natura 2000 protected lake in the ancient village of La Capelle et Masmolène with its 12th century château.
The house sleeps 8 with 4 double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower and 2 full bathrooms. 2 of the bedrooms open directly on to the heated salt-water pool, a third bedroom has its own private terrace complete with fountain.
Facing due south, the house has uninterrupted views past the pool and over the fields and hills from the large, high-ceiling living area. The bedrooms are split between two separate wings of the house so there is plenty of privacy. The house is on one level so good for the less mobile. We have reliable hi-speed internet and TV/Netflix. There is a full-size ping-pong table and boules available. Towels and sheets are high quality and the kitchen is equipped for the best of cooks.
The house is well insulated - therefore cool in summer and warm in winter. Each room is equipped with a fan (and radiators and wood-burning stove in living room for winter).
Uzès is a wonderful town-it’s famous in the area for its Saturday market and there are great restaurants in the town and villages around. (There’s even a Haribo sweets museum for the kids)
There are many well-signposted walks in this area, we have a couple of bikes at the house or you can go fishing in the nearby lake (just a few minutes’ walk away). You can go horse riding from stables a five minute drive away or kayaking on the River Gardon. The nearby village of St Quentin La Poterie offers dozens of art and ceramics galleries and the breathtaking world heritage site of the Pont du Gard is a few kilometres away.
Avignon- with its world famous July theatre festival- is reached in 40 minutes as are Nîmes, Arles and Orange with their spectacular Roman amphitheatres. If you would like a trip to the beach the Camargue is just over an hour away by car.
