'Maison Sept' is a spacious early 17th century French townhouse, located in the historic centre of Uzès. It is approximately 100 steps to the Place aux Herbes, the lively central hub of Uzès – a beautiful large square filled with plane trees, a fountain and wonderful shops and outdoor cafes. It is also the location of the twice weekly morning market where you can stock up on local produce, cheeses, meats, flowers, spices, and regional crafts.
Maison Sept is located on a narrow, cobbled medieval street, lined with town houses on both sides. There is an art gallery right across the street, and just a few doors down, a bakery - essential for those morning croissants. Two doors down on our side is a lovely inn with a wonderful restaurant.
You can enter Maison Sept through two doorways, one directly into the kitchen, a typical south of France entrance, and the other into a foyer at the side of the house. The house dates from the very beginning of the 17th century. Over the years it has been an inn twice, and has housed amongst its various occupants, a notary, a doctor and a maker of stockings. It has been expanded over the centuries and has been meticulously restored, combining ancient details with all the modern conveniences. It is an extremely comfortable and easy house to live in.
The kitchen is well stocked and modern, and contains all the requirements, whether you like to just make coffee, or cook elaborate gourmet meals. There is a gas cook top, electric wall oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender and food processor, nice stainless steel All Clad cookware and several types of coffee makers (we know what’s important!).
At the back of the house, the living room opens onto a private walled terrace. It is cool and shady in the heat of summer, a private oasis where you can have breakfast or a lovely al fresco dinner.
An ancient stone spiral staircase winds its way through the 4 stories of the house. There are four bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with a double bed, and one with a pair of twin beds. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are furnished with French antiques and antique tribal carpets. Two of the bedrooms have balconies that open onto the courtyard below. There are two full bathrooms and a powder room.
On the third floor you can unwind in the family room, equipped with internet TV and DVD player. Off this room is a mezzanine that serves as an office and is set up with wireless Internet. You have use of the full laundry room, with both a washer and dryer. You are welcome to use the unlimited long distance telephone service to many countries worldwide.
Uzes is a beautiful, magical town to explore and enjoy. It is also a wonderful base from which to explore the region. There are many wonderful Languedoc and Provence destinations within a short day trip drive. We would strongly encourage you to plan your stay to start on Friday or earlier in the week, if possible, so that you can be here to experience the market on Saturday morning. It is one of the most extensive markets in the south of France, and a lovely experience.

About Natalka Sharman
We live in Canada but love to spend time in France because of the wonderful lifestyle, the people, the language and the history.
Natalka Sharman purchased this House in 2010
Why Natalka Sharman chose Uzès
We decided to buy our home in Uzes because we fell in love with the town on one of our antiques sourcing trips and knew we had to spend as much time here as possible.
What makes this House unique
We love living in a small town in France. We have gotten to know many of our neighbours, who are very friendly, and we enjoy being able to go to any number of restaurants, art galleries, beautiful boutiques and a lovely twice a week market, just outside our door.

From the terrace off the living room which offers outdoor dining, to the cozy reading room above the second floor lounge, this lovely, 17th century house will charm you! There were three of us here for one week. We loved our rooms with comfortable beds and luxurious bedding, large bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, even a little video library! With a wonderful bakery just across the street, I was in heaven.
Beautiful house, fabulous location.
We stayed at le Sept for two weeks in April (four adults, one nine-year-old), and enjoyed it tremendously. The entire house is decorate with great charm, and is very comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well-stocked with high quality pans, knives and small appliances, which was highly appreciated when we cooked at home. For two families, the separation between the first living room and a separate large living area on the top floor was super.
The is no parking at the house, but we had no problems finding spots nearby.
This is truly one of the nicest streets in a beautiful town, and is only a few steps to the Place Aux Herbes and the primary shopping areas within Uzes.
Many thanks to Annick and Olivier, who made everything very easy for us.
We would not hesitate to recommend this location for anyone interested in staying in the Uzege area.
Thank you so much! We were very happy to host some fellow Canadians at our home in France and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Bliss in Uzes
This home was perfection in a beautiful town in Provence. Full of character and appointed with love. We were a family of three adult couples and were well catered for with two bathrooms, two lounges and a well supplied kitchen/dining room. An historic building, it is filled with light and warmth. Very tastefully decorated, very French and very comfortable. The street is quiet and private, and joins the main road that encircles the town, full of cafes, boulangeries and boutiques. Just steps away are restaurants and a lovely bakery just on the corner. We could not have been happier and will remember our time there with real affection.
So glad that your group enjoyed your stay. It means a lot to us that people enjoy our home and beautiful Uzès. We hope that we can host you another time in the future.
Beautifully finished stone town house. Very responsive owner and also the charming manager Annick
The house is beautiful, with thick original stone ,slightly scary spiral stairs in raw stone- but I would wish for much sturdier handrails ! The very top handrail was broken , and that was a safety concern. The fourth bed room was tiny for two beds, and ventilation from the window risked banging your head if you sat up in bed on one side.
However- the other three bedrooms, plus two lounges were lovely, and very beautifully decorated with furniture that befitted the style of the house. There is a modern kitchen( though we only used the microwave and fridge) and lots of pots and dishes. It is right in the charming town of Uzes, but down a side street so it is not noisy. Wonderful house to stay in for 6-8 people. The owner is very responsive to emails, and the manageress Annick is charming and helpful. We loved it!
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are working hard to get our mason in to fix the top handrail. He is very much in demand, unfortunately for us, but the work will be done very soon.
Fantastic old house, beautifully equipped in a great part of the old town.
The house is beautiful and full of character. Lots of room and well-equipped. Excellent location in the old town. Highly recommended
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you visit again soon!

We are very interested in antiquing, and find that Uzes is a great central base for antiquing in the south. There are huge antique fairs in Beziers, Avignon and Montpellier every other month. There are also many small weekly brocantes in the area. Our favourites are L'Isle sur la Sorgue on Sundays, Villeneuve les Avignon on Saturdays and Aix-en-Provence on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information, just write us a note. We are always happy to talk about antiques!
