La Maison d’Ulysse is a historic homestay in the Gard region of southern France. Owners Guy and Gauthier have laboured over this fortified farmhouse with love (once home to Ulysse Dumas) – one look at the blooming grounds, a taste of the garden-grown fruit and a glance at the elegant jumble of art and you'll be in love, too.
Ramble the garden and seek out the tombstone of the farmhouse's famous former resident, poet Ulysse Dumas. Other members of his family are also buried here, from a time when Protestants were buried in their homes, rather than among Catholics in regular cemeterys. The gardens are also home to salvaged benches from the train station in Marseille.
