Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This light and airy three-bedroom, two-bathroom, fully equipped, provencal villa, just five minutes on foot from the centre of medieval Uzes, offers you all the convenience of a town apartment PLUS a 120 square-meters Mediterranean garden with two terraces and barbecue, an enclosed 'terrace Tropezienne' (solarium, or sun-terrace) on the first floor, and an attached, lockable, garage with an additional parking space all within a quiet and secure, gated, residential environment.

Sunbathe or chill out with a glass of wine in the intimacy of the upstairs sun-terrace, outdo Rick Stein or Jamie Oliver in the well equipped kitchen, dine outside on the sheltered garden terraces or inside, relax with a good book, a CD or DVD (or UK Freeview satellite TV) in the comfortably furnished living area, or simply visit the many and varied restaurants and cafes of Uzes and safely stroll back to the villa for a quiet night's sleep in large comfortable beds: no need to worry if sharing that bottle of wine has put you over the legal limit for driving!

In just a minute after walking out of the villa up the chemin du Paradis, you will find yourselves in the narrow, twisting streets of Uzes, an extraordinarily beautiful medieval town in Provence, Gard, set in a region of verdant valleys rimmed by ribs of arid, rocky garrigue, between the sea and the Cevennes mountains. The villa is no more than five minutes' walk from restaurants, patisseries, boulangeries, cafes, small supermarkets, and the town's famous arcaded square, the Place aux Herbes, scene of the renowned Saturday and Wednesday provencal market.

Despite its central location, you can also walk out and into vineyards and fields where you can wander along the paths, or you can descend into the craggy gorge of the Eure valley and walk along its refreshing rushing river. There you will discover the spring which was the source of water for thirsty Roman Nimes, flowing via the famous aqueduct that crosses the spectacular Pont du Gard.

A comfortable and quiet oasis within walking distance of the Place aux Herbes

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a month in Uzes in this cozy, well-equipped, and very clean home. Parn and Dianne welcomed us warmly and were very prompt in their response to our requests. There are many lovely villages to explore in the region and it is within driving distance to Avignon, Nimes, St. Remy and the beautiful Rhone vineyards. Walking in town is easy and there are many restaurants and shops to enjoy.

wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from 2 weeks in Uzes staying at this property. It is in a really good location really clean on arrival (and serviced weekly) with only a short walk into the heart of the town yet really peaceful location on a private gated estate. Locals are really friendly and Diane and Parn make you really welcome and are there to advise great places to go. The house is well equipped should you want to do a "Jamie Oliver" with the wonderful fresh ingredients available. There are numerous bars and restaurants in town, (3 course lunch menu Plat du Jour 13.90Euros -well worth trying). There are two good markets a week in Uzes - or just sit in the spacious garden with a glass and a book!

For off season holidays central heating (unusual for a French property) and English as well as French TV (flat screen). Property ideal for two couples as upstairs and down bathrooms.

This is the best property we have stayed in when visiting France (some 25 years!!)

3 weeks in Uzes

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from 3 lovely weeks in Uzes. The weather has been superb! The property met and exceeded our expections and the details given are accurate. The house has been thoughtfully furnished and equipped and was spotlessly clean. The cleaning that was carried out on each Saturday of our stay was done to a very high standard.

We spent 2 of the weeks as just a couple and 1 week with our daughter and son in law and their 2 children aged 5 and 8. The house easily accommodated us all.

We have visited the area before on several occasions. It offers lots to do and see. We had a lovely day at the summer beach at the Pont du Gard, enjoyed visiting beautiful Avignon once again, drove to Gigondas - a beautiful drive - we ate out a lot and just enjoyed being in and around Uzes. There are many restaurants in Uzes to suit all pockets and we enjoyed many fo them. We had a very good lunch at the auberge in the square in nearby Lussan.The markets are wonderful and the kitchen was well equipped to encourage us to buy the great variety of produce to eat at the house.

The owners were friendly and helpful and we were confident that they would respond immediately if we had encountered any problems. We would certainly recommend this property and would go again ourselves if we were returning to Uzes.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

An excellent property with everything required for a terrific stay. The owners met us and explained how everything in the house worked. The location was just a short walk from the old town and close to bakeries, supermarket and numerous restaurants. Uzes is also central to many of the other attractions in the area
