About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) - high quality bedding

The apartment is within the city centre of medieval beautiful town Uzès, one block from the splendid 'Place aux Herbes' and its castle, where the weekly farmers´ market takes place, next to famous sightseeing attractions and beautiful town spots.

The very comfortable, romantic bed room is to the back so that no street noise disturbs the calm. The apartment has completely been renovated in June 2010 and stylishly designed. All ancient stone facades have been renovated. The renovation has been done with ecological materials and the equipment is luxurious, comfortable and cosy. The interior evokes an ancient country house charm with stone walls, wooden ceiling and smith craftwork.

The bathroom is made from marble tiles and craftwork. The apartment can also be lightened with candles and wall torches, creating a romantic flair and cosy atmosphere. Walls are either made of tailored stones or covered with organic wall plastering, creating a natural and healthy micro climate, and bathing the interior in warm colors originating from provencal town Roussillon, know for it ochre earth pigments.

The apartment is fully equipped and perfectly situated. It has been equipped with cable TV and IPod station as well as telephone and internet access. The modern kitchen with ceramic hob, washing machine and automatic dryer, dish washer, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, boiler, blender, raclette machine etc., is perfectly adapted also for a longer stay and cooking fans.

Those, who prefer going out for restaurants just find them right in front of the house, or around the corner. French food retailers and fancy shopping boutiques are in closest distance. The police station and tourist office, the town hall, cathedral and duke palace are less than 100 meters away. A bakery and grocery are right at the house entrance, same as hairdresser, beauty salon, flower shop, fitness centre, kiosk, book shop and even a letter box.

All city commodities such as restaurants, shops, farmers market, bakery, hair dresser, fitness and beauty centre, bank, grocery, Internet cafe, etc. right at the house entrance.

In addition, we run a newly opened wellness place and offer our holiday guests free access and a 10 % discount on wellness treatments (on reservation and up to availability).

About Fabienne

Dear guests,

I am happy that you found our place in the internet. Uzès is indeed a beautiful city which I learned to know very well. Though being myself a foreigner to this country I fell in love with it and especially with this little charming town, where I decided to invite people and make them feel home, as I do now. Be also welcome in Paris where we offer a place and are happy to assist in transfer planning.

Fabienne purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Fabienne chose Uzès

Perfect location, quiet and cosy. English speaking owner in place. We are delighted to give you hints and tips or assist in any excursion any travel planning.

What makes this apartment unique

Provence feeling without the crowded rush of other cities being closer to the mediteranean sea, such as Aix-en-Provence, Avignon etc! Still, these cities are very close and easy to reach, even by public bus transfer leaving from Uzès. However, our town offers everything a South of France vacantioner may dream of. Sleepy villages, lots of historic places, beautiful architecture and natural landscape bathed 325 days per year in mediteranean sunlight, all year through animation (open air classical musique concerts, modern danse performances, truffle, vin, garlic, pottery, paintings and other traditional markets, summer festivals with cattle hunt in the town streets, etc.) and, of course, the most beautiful provencal market, that covers the whole town on Saturday and the 'Place aux Herbes' each Wednesday morning.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A superb apartment set in the centre of Uzes and a perfect base for whatever holiday you desire

  • 5 of 5

Location: Town centre! Perfect not only for the multiple delights of Uzes itself, but for further exploration of this wonderful region. The bus stops are only 3 minutes' walk from the apartment.

Apartment: Very stylish and pleasingly clean. We were impressed by the thoughtful way in which it was kitted out to provide comfort and convenience.

Host: Fabienne was a most welcoming and warm host who added a personal and caring aspect to our stay.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thanks so much for your warm recognition. It was my pleasure welcoming you in our little Provencal town and talk about your country also, which I in revenge love so much. Let's stay in contact as it is my biggest reward to meet with nice people such as you. Enjoy and feel free to come "home" to France whenever you like. Kindly, Fabienne.

Almost perfect, but

  • 3 of 5

Dear Fabienne:

We would have given your apartment a perfect 5 stars, we really wanted to give your apartment 5 stars--for it is truly as wonderful as other guest have already mentioned--if not for one issue that we experienced: the toxic drains.

Both the bathroom shower and bathroom sink lack proper air traps to prevent sewer gas from rising into the apartment. [We experienced how horrible this can be the first night of our stay. My wife was in tears, and wanted to leave for a hotel. Any hotel.] We appreciate that you keep the sink drain closed and use a rubber stopper to cover the shower drain, but these are hardly proper fixes in such an obviously expensive and well maintained apartment.

Please have a professional plumber fix your bathroom so that your apartment can again maintain a 5 star rating.

Regards,

Honeymoon 2015 - Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Uzes for six nights for our honeymoon in 2015. A fantastic apartment in the centre of the beautiful historic town. Well laid out, well equipped, well maintained and well managed. We travelled to Nimes, Avignon, Pont du Gard and Saint Quentin-La Poterie during our visit, and there was much more in the area we didn't have a chance to see. Will be returning one day soon!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! The apartment was more than we could have hoped for and just steps away from the centre of town. We came with a car and found nearby parking to be close and hassle free.

Fabienne was also the perfect host and greeted us warmly.

Recommended to anyone thinking of staying in wonderful uzes.

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible city and perfect apartment for a holiday stay. We enjoyed being right within the historical city centre and most comfortably lodged in a quiet and elegant apartment, next to restaurants, shops and attractions. Great Cannelé patisserie at the baker at the house entrance and supermarket within 2 steps. We also enjoyed the warm welcome and great hints and tips from Heike. Perfect place to stay!

The apartment is within the city centre of medieval, beautiful town Uzès, one block from the splendid 'Place aux Herbes' and its castle, where the weekly farmers´ market takes place, next to famous sightseeing attractions and beautiful town spots. Uzès is an insider tip and incredibly nostalgic French live-style discovery. The newly renovated, entire historical city center - all pedestrian area within the old town parts - offers lots of restaurants on shadowy squares, sightseeing attractions, beautiful architecture and charming shopping facilities.

Our holiday apartment is right on a city square, next to the grand boulevard, with view on a corner cafe and ancient house facades.

Uzès is an ancient city, famous scenery for films such as Cyrano de Bergerac and historic soil. Nowadays people come from all around the world to visit its medieval pedestrian city centre and famous provencal market. Sightseeing attractions such as the Pont du Gard and other provencal cities are in close neighborhood. In Uzès visitors still find the romantic French country life style in a town less crowded than its big sisters Aix-en-Provence, les Baux or Arles. Uzès is still a sleeping but proud beauty.

All city attractions and shops right at the house front, beautiful medieval city with Saturday and Wednesday morning provencal market. Bus stop to river, Nimes and Avignon in 5 minutes walk. Nature resort idem. Bicycle rent in place. SPA and wellness place, city golf course at the city entrance. Public swimming pool and tennis court within the city center. Lots of local events and festival during summer season.
