Saint Quentin la Poterie
Sometimes it rains, and sometimes it rains all day!
So, when that happens, it’s time to get the umbrella and go exploring!
We headed to St Quentin-la-Poterie, which is just 5 kilometers northwest of Uzès. As the name suggests, it has been a center for pottery for a long time. In fact, many of the tiles for the Palais des Papes in Avignon were made there in the 14th century. So, when you wander the little streets of this ancient village, it’s easy to conger up images of 14th century artisans working on their tiles. It is also easy to walk into the present day artist’s shops and admire their beautiful pots!
Back in Uzès, the Wednesday marché was going on… even in the rain. After all, we still need to cook our dinner! And, look how happy the carrots and lettuce are.
After a quick wander around the market stalls, we headed to Chez Cerise, a cozy little restaurant on the place Dampmartin. Now, I don’t want to sound too “over-the-top” here, but this place really is the answer to all of your romantic fantasies about little French cafés. On this lovely, rainy day there was a fire in the fireplace, Michel Legrand music playing and one of the best lunches we have had in some time! How’s that for the answer to your dreams about France?
Chez Cerise is open Wednesday – Sunday 9-4pm Tel:04.66.03.30.57
