La Bruguiere House Rental Photos and Description
Old stone charm, renovated 2013, peace and quiet, view, 8 mins from Uzès...
L'Avinia is a beautiful traditional stone house located in the charming village of La Bruguière, 8 minutes by car from Uzès, the town of art and history that is the main draw of the beautiful provençal Gard region.
The house comfortably accommodates a family or group of up to 8 people for a peaceful and restful stay , whatever the season.
The south-facing garden gets sun all day, is protected from the wind, and is peaceful because there is no through-traffic in this quiet little village.
The garden includes a heated pool, large teak table and chairs for outdoor eating, 2 large parasols for shade, a big Weber gas barbecue, 4 sun lounger mattresses, a large outdoor sofa and 4 outdoor reclining chairs.
Although the garden is compact rather than sprawling, it has everything one could need for spending fabulous moments of relaxation or shared time with loved ones. As a bonus, there is a 1500m² public garden opposite the house that is almost always deserted, for the kids to run around in or play games. It's almost like having a private garden extension.
L'Avinia was renovated early 2013, respecting the old world charm: stone construction, central stone staircase with a wonderful hundred-year patina, good volumes and proportions, floors in traditional antique tile.
The beautiful central staircase serves 3 levels:
- Ground floor: spacious dining room, kitchen, laundry room and shower room with WC
- intermediary floor: grand double living room, 1 generous bedroom, 1 nice bathroom with WC
- top floor: 3 bedrooms, 1 shower room with WC, and 1 bathroom with WC
The kitchen is very cosy, with 2 comfy armchairs placed around the large central fireplace. Very well equipped, it features a Lacanche traditional stove and oven and a generous American fridge / freezer with chilled filtered water dispenser and ice cube / crushed ice dispenser.
The view is a strong point of this house: the 3 large living room windows and 2 of the 4 bedrooms have panoramic views over the Provence countryside.
Active individuals will be happy too, with 2 all terrain bikes made available, Badminton, Ping Pong and a traditional boules set (there is a boules field 50m away on the village square).
We hope you will have a great time during your stay and enjoy l'Avinia every bit as much as we do. :-)

Why Carole Wagner chose La Bruguiere
Alex and I fell in love with the Uzès region when we first visited. We spent months seeking out the right house, before finding the rare pearl in the charming village of La Bruguière, 8 minutes north of Uzès. We invested ourselves in renovating and perfecting the house and its garden during big works that were finished in early 2013. We hope that you will enjoy staying at l'Avinia as much as we do.
