Uzes - Apartment Rental - What location is best?

Hello! We are staying in Uzes for 8 days in December, and have found many lovely apartments to rent. But are having trouble deciding which one. We will have a car, but plan to walk a lot and want to be able to walk everywhere in Uzes. One apartment is right near the Place aux Herbs, another on Rue Centrale and another at the end of Impasse Alfred Meric north of Boul Gambetta. Any thoughts on which location is best for walking, quiet or anything else we should know? Thank you!

We rented an apartment on rue de la Grande Bourgade, just across the street from the entrance to the Place aux Herbes. We liked being close to the Place. It was not noisy in either May or Oct., and I cannot imagine that noise would be a problem in Dec .Regardless of where your apartment is, you can walk all over town.

Uzes is small. The population is only about 8,000.

I liked when I stayed about across the street from the Mairie and just a block from the parking garage.

You said in your PM that the one in Rue Centrale had gone - is this a different one? That is in the protected Bourgade area.

The impasse might be a bit quiet in December with the shorter days; I’d probably prefer somewhere more open.

Whereabouts is the one close to Place aux Herbes?

As F1racegirl says, it’s such a small town that nowhere is far from the centre, and all 3 you mention are only a few steps away from Place aux Herbes.

If you give links to the apartments it could help us to help you.

You all are awesome! We ended up with a wonderful looking place on Rue de la Grande Bourgade with great reviews and I appreciate all the input! Gardengirlie what did you mean by "protected Bourgade" area? Anyway, many thanks!

The Bourgarde is a protected (sauvegardé) area of the old town, no new building is allowed.

CampSue, we stayed in a rental on Rue de la Grande Bourgade in late November last year. Loved Uzes and loved the location! Just be aware that parking nearby can be hard to find. The owner of the place that we rented indicated there was parking available in the little square at the bottom of the street ... which there was, sometimes. Sometimes we had to park further down, another block or two of walking (which wasn't a problem for us but a bit more "work" on the day we checked out).

When we first visited Uzès a long tine ago we stayed in the Rue de la Petite Bourgade; we stopped outside our accommodation to unload, then parked in the secure underground car park across town, a few minutes walk away, as it was in May/June. However, out of season it’s worth looking in the little square and road, Place tour du Roy et rue tour du Roy.
