Welcome to Armchair France

 

Uzs, a medieval city in Languedoc, France

Uzs is a charming medieval city (pop. 8,300) in the Languedoc-Rousillon region of southern France, about 20 miles north of Nmes, 30 miles west of Avignon, 40 miles from Marignane Airport in Marseilles, 50 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, and many thousands of miles east of New Hampshire and the United States. Click here for a panoramic view of Uzs...

Uzsa town with a skyline that marks the region from afarand from within holds treasures for the eyes, ears, and tastebuds.

Self-proclaimed first duchy of France; host to one of the most colorful Saturday markets in the south of France; site of the source for the water that flowed through the Pont du Gard on its way to Nmes in Roman times; a cathedral boasting a beautiful organ on the inside and an Italianate fenestrelle tower on the outside; a region full of beautiful villages and all sorts of goodies for food and wine lovers; annual festivals of dance, music, pottery, truffles, gardening, and antiques; the arcade-lined Place aux Herbes, where the weekly market takes place, and where you can sit outside for a tasty lunch or a drink on a sunny day. Just a bit of heaven...

We cant pretend to bring you everything about the region, but we can send you to sites that can give you more information if youre interested in visiting. Plus well be adding our own favorite spots in the coming months. Meanwhile, check into our regular updates on the area via Armchair Uzs.
