This luxury Provence villa was built in 1840 on land formerly owned by the Duchy of Uzes. The Domaine des Anges is an elegant vila set around a wonderful garden courtyard in the midst of vineyards and fields of wheat and sunflowers, yet is just 10 minutes' walk to the local village of Montaren. It has been carefully renovated by local craftsmen to ensure it retains its original splendour, and the addition of a fabulous pool area with Moroccan style outdoor living, bar, summer kitchen and dining ensures this wonderful setting can be enjoyed to the full.
Montaren has a bakery, post office and newsagents selling English papers. The delightful town of Uzes, declared a City of Art and History in 2008, is just 2.5 miles away from this luxury Provence villa. A market on the famous "Place aux Herbes" offers all regional products including pottery, truffles, wines, aspargus, olives and oil. There is the splendid castle of the Duc, and a cathedral as well as the usual offering of shops, cafés and restaurants.
The iconic Pont du Gard is just 20 minutes' drive. The Camargue and the Mediterranean are a 45 minute drive, whilst 25 minutes away are the dramatic mountains and canyons of the Cevennes, and the fast flowing rivers of the Ardeche.

This is one of our most prestigious properties in the area - a brilliant choice if you are planning to take the extended family or a large group of friends on holiday. Many interesting places to visit in the surrounding region. The small medieval village of Montaren a short drive away is where you can buy all the essentials plus there is a "cave" (winery) at the edge of the village where you can buy the local wine. The place to go for restaurants and culture is Uzes .Try the restaurant L’Ancienne Gare - very good food - and one of the best in terms of both cuisine and location is L’Artemise on Chemin de la Fontaine aux Boeufs.
