Property description

Bonjour et bienvenue à Uzes!

A woman said to me, many years ago : 'The first time I saw Uzes I cried. It was wonderful to see a village so beautiful and ancient yet so alive and vibrant'. Well it is still wonderful now and I look forward to helping you experience the magic of Uzès and what the locals believe is the "real France"!

To enter your apartment you walk through a huge oak door off a classically French cobblestone, pedestrian street. As you walk up to the first level of this ancient, stone house you will know you have found your own 'home away from home' in traditional France.

Your apartment welcomes you with the warmth of stone walls, beamed ceilings, elegant lighting and colors. You will find all the comforts of home with gas central heating, very well equipped kitchen and all the little touches that make a difference: guide books, UNLIMITED WIFI, PHONE WITH UNLIMITED CALLS TO FIXED LINES ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, CABLE TV, traveling book library, maps, ideas from previous guests and a market basket to ensure you are equiped from your very first day. We even have a picnic basket and thermos and utensils ready for you!

Being south facing the apartment has excellent natural light and at 46 square metres it is very comfortable for a couple and perhaps 1 child or other adult.

When you walk out of the front door, you are in the very heart of the 'ancient town'. You can spend hours exploring the maze of little winding streets and historic sites, soak up incredible art, sculptures homewares and clothes shops.. or you could take a picnic to the river valley just a few minutes walk away - or just soak up the atmosphere of this town that has been declared a national treasure. The famous market on Wednesdays and Saturdays is at the end of your street. Cafes, patisseries, boulangeries, restaurants, hairdressers, banks are all within a few metres of the front door. Yet the apartment is tranquil and relaxing.

There is free car parking (open air) or paid parking can be arranged at our private garage just a few minutes flat walk away. It is great if you can plan your arrival on a Friday or a Tuesday, to be there to enjoy the famous Uzès market the next day, to get your provisions for the week and to begin to meet and get to know the locals. However there is no set change over date for the apartment.

I want you to enjoy your stay so I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the region or the apartment. Having traveled to France a lot (and often with children!) believe me - there are no silly questions!

Please note: Just email me directly and I will provide an exact rental quote. Do not rely on the automated quoting tool on this site as I do offer some small discounts for longer stays (over 3 weeks etc). Also - to keep your rental reasonable, I do not accept payment through this site.

I look forward to helping you enjoy a trouble free, enchanting stay in Uzès.

J'espère parler avec vous très bientôt!


BY THE WAY.....
THE SECURE, UNDERCOVER PRIVATE GARAGE, WITHIN A 5 MIN WALK FROM THE APARTMENT IS 40 EURO A WEEK.

  • The apartment is one of only 3 in an historic, stone village pied a terre. The original features such as exposed stone walls and ceiling beams have been preserved and sensitively combined with modern fittings and features. It has good gas central heating as well as good plumbing and electricity (2007) so you can be assured of every comfort. The bathroom has a full-sized bath and the kitchen is very well equipped. It is perfect for a couple or maybe with another guest or child. The access is via an easy one level walk up, with the apartment being all on one level. If you are arriving by car you can park about 10 metres away, at the end of the street to unload your baggage. The secure, undercover car parking is then within a 5 minute flat walk. Teenagers and young adults also enjoy this position as they are right in 'centre ville' and can access the nearby cinema, cafes, wine bars and local music and drama performances that are regularly held in Uzes....moreless

Location

25 Kilometres
Nearest Airport
Nimes

Car: Not Necessary

Sitting right on the western edge of Provence, Uzès is perfectly located to access vineyards, famous pottery 'villages', the historic Pont Du Gard (14 km from Uzes), Chateau Neuf du Pape Region (44kms), L'Isle Sur La Sourge, the Vaucluse, Les Baux and Northern Provence (Arles is at 63kms). Cities such as Aix en Provence (137kms), Marseilles (153kms), and Montpellier (82 kms) are also within an easy 'day trip' distance. The region - The Gard, in Languedoc-Roussillon - has a vibrant art and culture activity calender, with classes held on painting, pottery, french language, singing and performance in the area. A car is very useful for these trips of course, but there are good bus services in the areas, so a car is not essential but probably recommended if possible.
