A Day in Uzes and a Chateau for Sale

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

It takes just under 2 hours to get to Uzes from Aix and is well worth the visit. It’s a charming little town (pop. just over 8,000) which is unspoiled by modern developments. And it has a terrific Saturday market.

So what is there to do? Perhaps because it was a Saturday, or maybe because it was in January, we had no luck with the Ducal Palace (shut), or the deliciously-named Musée de Bonbons (shut)…so we went to the tourist information office (also shut!) …Continue reading here for things to do in Uzes and a unique chateau that is for sale.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
