Beautiful and artistic Uzés is popular for buying property, and it’s only become more sought-after through the years. Luckily, it’s still off the beaten path as far as tourism is concerned, affording you a calm, laid-back lifestyle all year long. There are some tourists who flock to the area, of course, but it’s not nearly as crowded as other parts of France, despite being just as lovely as those areas. Appointed a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire, a City of Art and History, by the French government, the town today is chic, popular with wealthy property buyers, and known for its superior restaurants, fantastic hotels and intimate art galleries.
Where is Uzés in France?
The medieval town of Uzés is in the Gard department of southern France, in the Occitanie region. It’s to the west of Avignon and the north of Nimes. A notably medieval town, one of its most famous sites to visit is the aqueduct that was used during Roman times to supply Nimes with water. Often, Uzés is used as a starting point to explore the rest of the Occitanie region, making it especially popular with expats – however, despite the multicultural influence, it has remained distinctly French, which is one of the reasons it’s so beloved.
What Makes Uzés So Popular?
Uzés is known for its architecture, particularly the Renaissance houses and towers that have been preserved, as well as the town’s 17th-century chapel. Many of the buildings here have colourful shutters, which you’ll notice as you roam around the quaint, narrow streets. Small boutiques will invite you in to browse and buy along the way.
Plane trees provide shade in the Place aux Herbes square, letting you people-watch as you sip coffee. While you’re there, make sure to appreciate the fountains, and return for lunch or dinner, too – there are several restaurants here to pick from. Also, handmade items from local artisans and fresh produce are sold at markets twice a week.
Le Duché is a medieval castle that’s located in the ancient centre of Uzés. There are four towers, and if you have a burst of energy, take the opportunity to climb the narrow 100-step spiral staircase in the King’s Tower. You’ll end up with an unbeatable rooftop view of the town. For more history, visit the Jardin Médiéval (the Medieval Garden), where that are more than 400 kinds of wild plants, each one used all the way back during the Middle Ages.
The Vallée de l’Eure is one of the prime destinations if you’re craving outdoor time and even a bit of adrenaline. As you walk or run alongside rivers, you’ll pass ancient trees and cross fields – and odds are you’ll be alone most of the time, ideal if you’re looking for some solo time.
What Types of Properties Are Available to Buy in Uzés?
Villas in Uzés often boast multiple en-suite bedrooms, bay windows and terraces with gorgeous views, and extensive outdoor areas with heated swimming pools, summer kitchens and vegetable gardens. Additional features may include a gym, a game room, wood-burning fireplaces, a Mediterranean garden and fruit or olive trees. Primary bedrooms can be especially grand. Yours may have a private dressing room and a separate living room or office as part of the main suite. You may also have enough land to add an extension to your home if you want even more space.
There’s a lot of vineyard property for sale in Uzés as well. You can buy a home with hobby vines if you want to casually go about winemaking, or you can find the space to conduct a full-blown business. Another commercial option is to buy rental property that you’re going to offer to tourists when you’re not in town. Or, you can convert outbuildings to rental properties and host visitors while you live there full-time.
Overview of How to Buy Property in Uzés
Working with a property buyers agent when looking for property for sale in Uzés means you’ll get insider knowledge of the area, property types and even listings that haven’t been made public yet. This is especially helpful if you have to make some arrangements from abroad and will be making viewing trips that you need organised ahead of time.
Once you’ve settled on property for sale in Uzés that you’re interested in buying, you’ll put an offer in writing, which will be presented to the seller. Should the seller accept the offer, the initial contract, called the Compromis de Vente, will be drawn up and signed by both of you.
After that, you have to wait out the mandatory 10-day cooling-off period. If you decide to pull out of the sale, you can do it during this time without losing your deposit or paying any penalties.
If you opt to move forward with the sale, the next step is the conveyancing process. Over approximately 12 weeks, various home assessments will be conducted.
Once you and the property owner have worked out the specifics of the sale, the Acte de Vente, which is the deed, will be written. Both parties will sign, and you’ll make your final payment. At that point, the home is officially yours!
