La Maison Jasmin, dating back to the 17th century, is integrated amongst the old walls of the picturesque, 13th Century medieval hill top village of Castillon du Gard and offers the most wonderful views of the coastal plains of the Rhone. Enter La Maison Jasmin from a narrow cobbled street through a courtyard that in summer is redolent of the scent and welcoming shade of a mature jasmine tree.
The house (a very comfortable 250m2/2,700 sq.ft.) is entirely built of stone that allows it to retain its heat during the winter and remain cool during the summer. Recently renovated to a very high standard, with exquisite attention to detail, the house provides the latest in modern comfort without sacrificing the style of its original architecture.
The ground floor can be made separate to create an apartment with a kitchen, large vaulted living room, a large double bedroom (with a super king or two twin beds), office nook and bathroom with walk-in shower.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms: a very spacious master bedroom (super king), with breathtaking views and morning light, has its luxurious ensuite featuring both a walk-in shower and a large soaking tub; the other two comfortable bedrooms (one king and one super king) share a common bathroom with a walk in shower and a separate toilet. A large welcoming, living room (11 metres long), complete with triple sofas, a majestic fireplace and flat screen TV (satellite) provides calm respite for moments of detente. An adjacent butler’s kitchen makes early morning tea or coffee or evening cocktails an easy option.
On the upper floor is the main kitchen, fully equipped with high-end appliances, and a dining area with a contemporary oak table seats eight guests. From this open living area large french doors lead onto a magical, rooftop terrace planted with wild flowers and a variety herbs for the picking. This roof terrace (58 m2/625 sq.ft.), with a gas barbecue, glass topped dining table for eight guests, parasol, four chaise-longues for sunning, and an outdoor shower, is enough to tempt anyone desiring rest from exploring this most wonderful region.
Castillon du Gard is a beautiful jewel of a village, and within walking distance from La Maison Jasmin are a quality butcher, a baker, a small convenience store, and several restaurants (two of exceptional quality), and a luxury boutique hotel with spa. A thirty minute drive from Avignon or Nimes and an easy twenty minute drive from the aristocratic market town the Duchy of Uzes, Provence is on your door step.

The jazz festival in Blauzac will be held July 3-4-5. Blauzac is an elegant little village just south of Uzès. We’ve mentioned this festival before, because we’ve enjoyed it so much. More information is on their website. If you are here, don’t miss it. It’s just that good!
The arrival of cherries indicates that summer is really here. The fruit from the farms and orchards around Uzès will be ready soon and what could be more authentic than picking your own red, juicy cherries? Domaine Natura is located in St Laurent-la-Vernède, a pretty village just 13 kilometers (8 miles) north of Uzès. This is a small winery that not only makes delicious wines, but they have bountiful orchards. Hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-12noon and 3pm-6pm. www.domainenatura.fr
If picking is not an option, look to the markets for an abundance of fresh cherries! You won’t be able to resist.
If you think chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are just for making hummus, soup or salad bars… think again! In Montaren France, the humble chickpea has been elevated to Festival level. We try to never miss this event, and this year is no different. There will be lots of good food, excellent wines, entertainment and a chance to tour the local gardens. Bring the whole family, because there is something for everyone.
June 5-6-7 in Montaren. Admission is free except for evening music events.
See you there!
