"La Maison d'Helene" is an independent house in a 16th Century, rock-hewn property. A separate suite,"La Chambre de Gussie" overlooks the pool. With both offering queen-size beds, the cottage and suite offer accommodation for up to two couples. The courtyard and pool are shared with the owners.

Stedet
Welcome to L’Escritoire — a sixteenth-century, partly rock-hewn residence with enclosed courtyard and pool. We offer self-catering accommodation for one adult couple in an independent stone house (La Maison d’Hélène) or accommodation for two adult couples sharing the house with a separate suite (La Chambre de Gussie) overlooking the pool. Guests will find L'Escritoire to be an exclusive haven in which to read, write, relax, and explore in the remarkably quiet, medieval village of Saint Siffret and in the glorious countryside of the Uzège. Until a hundred years or so ago the dwellings that comprise L’Escritoire included a small village farm dating from at least the sixteenth century and probably formed part of the nearby château’s grounds. Retaining many of its original features it has been elegantly restored by the present owners, both academics, who live and work in the main house with their small watchdog and two cats. Note that because of the quiet nature of the property, the deep pool, and lack of extra sleeping space, this property is not suitable for children.

Gjestetilgang
The entry to L’Escritoire is by way of an eighteenth-century walnut door opening onto the courtyard, but there is independent access from the street to La Maison d’Hélène as well as La Chambre de Gussie so owners and guests can come and go undisturbed. The shared central courtyard has a small but deep (non-heated) pool for refreshment and quiet relaxation.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
L’Escritoire is in the centre of the vieux village of St Siffret, a cluster of charming restored houses, courtyards, narrow streets and alleyways. Some of the houses (like the owners') have been partly hewn out of the rock and contain evidence of prehistoric dwellings.

Little is known about Saint Siffret himself, but his statue, holding a stirrup, stands guard outside the eleventh-century church on the east side of the village. The sixteenth-century château, a hundred metres from L’Escritoire, dominates the north-west corner.

Sitting on a hill surrounded by woods, vineyards, asparagus and wheat fields and scrubland (garrigue) with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, St Siffret is the nearest village to the spectacular, medieval city of Uzès. Just four kilometres away, it is possible to walk to there in about 40 minutes.

Just outside the old village, on the road to St Maximin, is a small supermarket that also sells fresh bread, newspapers and magazines, and has a post-office. In the same complex is the medical and physiotherapist centre.

St Siffret boasts a restaurant, a fantastic hairdresser, its own cooperative wine cellar, and an independent wine-maker at the Domaine Reynaud.

Saint-Siffret, Languedoc-Roussillon, Frankrike

Uzès - Half a century ago the medieval city of Uzès to the south of the Cévennes hills slumbered, forgotten. Today, thanks to local initiative and support from successive governments’ cultural policies, it is one of the most colourful and vibrant towns in the South of France. During the summer its population increases threefold with tourists and owners of second homes arriving by air (Nîmes, Montpellier, Avignon), by train (Avignon and Nîmes) and by car, with motorway access only a few kilometres away. On Saturdays and Wednesdays the local market attracts hundreds, virtually turning the centre of the town into a pedestrian area. Cafés and restaurants spill out onto the pavements. Foreign languages – Dutch, German, Spanish, Swedish, Danish and … English – are almost as common as French. Surrounding its medieval castle and contained within its circular boulevard, Uzès offers a maze of narrow, tiny streets and squares with beautifully restored houses. Most of these date from the seventeenth century and were built on the medieval arcades that sheltered a variety of specialist markets, but everywhere traces remain of the town that had been here for a thousand years already. Culturally Uzès is increasingly active. In addition to the local museums are small art galleries offering a range of exhibitions (pottery, painting, jewellery, furniture), a cinema and, in July, an international music festival, the Nuits Musicales. In the same month Uzès welcomes one of the major antiques fairs of the region and in August hosts a wine festival.

Within easy distance are the towns that were jewels of the Roman Empire and of the high Middle Ages - Nîmes, Orange and Arles (second only to Rome) and Avignon. Only a little further is Aix-en-Provence and just a dozen kilometres away is one of the wonders of the Roman world and one of the engineering feats of all time, the 2000 year old aqueduct, the Pont du Gard.
