“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A perfect place for a quiet relaxing holiday where Amanda, our charming and helpful hostess, was on hand to offer suggestions and advice for whatever we asked of her.

St Maximin is a quiet village, so we found a car to be essential as even a walk to the local boulangerie and supermarché in the summer heat would knock you out for the day. Having a car opened up a wealth of opportunities as there is so much to do in the surrounding area - visiting markets and festivals (the Saturday market in Uzes is a must – get there early!), walking and kayaking, exploring the ancient towns of the Gard area and swimming in the rivers. The kayaking was a highlight – there were seven of us ranging in age from 9 to 40-something; it's another must-do – although battling the wind as it was funnelled through the Pont du Gard arch was an experience – perhaps don't pick a breezy day!

The location and facilities of this well-furnished and comfortable house gave us the opportunity to have lazy pool days interspersed with activity and exploration days, and along with the virtually permanent sunshine it meant that everybody in our party had a fabulous holiday that will be remembered for a long time.

If we don't return here, it'll only be because we decided just to move to the area! Don't bother looking at other properties – this is the one you want :)

“Warm & original”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

The "tips" for writing a review suggest describing "the service" but staying in Petite Maison felt more like staying with friends or family than a hotel-style service! The atmosphere was essentially just help yourself and/ or ask if you are unsure.

The property was charming & the outdoor living & entertaining area were lovely spaces to socialise with the other guests.

While St Maximin itself is a very small town, the close 5- 10 minute drive to Uzes was very handy & lots of other attractions of Provence are within 2 hours drive away. The amenities at Petite Maison were adequate considering the historic age of the building.

For me the best was the out door pool & terrace areas for getting together with the group or just relaxing & reading. I least liked the little bitey insects and would have started with serious application of insect repellant on the first day if I realised!
