Condo/Apartment
This is stylishly furnished, spacious and bright apartment in a 400-year-old building. It has recently been renovated to the highest standards - nothing is left out. The large windows overlook everyone's favourite square right in the heart of ancient, historic Uzes, while the bedrooms open out on a quiet square at the back of the building and overlook the Church St Etienne (the bells don't ring though!) This is a unique apartment in that it is not a mere holiday rental but my home, and therefore your potential home-away-from-home with all the comforts of such... There are two double bedrooms with kingsize beds (memory-foam mattresses) one of which can be made into twin-beds. There are two modern bathrooms with large walk-in showers, an extremely well-equipped kitchen with place setting...This is stylishly furnished, spacious and bright apartment in a 400-year-old building.

There are two double bedrooms with kingsize beds (memory-foam mattresses) one of which can be made into twin-beds. There are two modern bathrooms with large walk-in showers, an extremely well-equipped kitchen with place settings for up to 6-8 people... There's original art on the walls, an extensive library with inspirational books on food, design, art, travel and architecture, classic literature, and many good films on DVD. The large windows open out on a beautiful vista with its plane trees, its fountain and people enjoying a drink in the dappled shade. And sometimes, during lunchtimes in summer, you can pretend that those serenading musicians sing just for you! Finally, since Uzes is an architecturally protected town, we are not allowed air-conditioning units in the historic centre. However, I have installed colonial style ceiling fans in all the rooms for coolness in summer - a far more comfortable solution than air conditioning as you can keep the windows open! There is also a super-efficient heating system to ensure the apartment is cosy and warm in winter.More

About the neighborhood
July/Aug temperatures can get upto 35'C/95'F but nothing could be nicer than STROLLING through Uzes' cool narrow streets and visiting its chic little shops.. Or how about a spot of people watching in the dappled shade on one of Uzes' many outdoor CAFE TERRACES.. If summer still proves too hot, cool sparkling clean RIVERS are not far away for a refreshing swim while the SEA and BEACHES are within 30 minutes' drive... Otherwise Uzes is a great place from which to explore the uncountable historical towns and monuments, the vineyards (all winemakers offer tastings), traditional artisans and gorges for hiking. The climate in Uzes is such that we can eat outdoors well into November.
Getting around
No real need for a car as Uzes is linked to Nimes and Avignon by public transport. However, with a car you will be able to explore further afield - first to discover the Camargue with its wild horses, the medieval walled city of Aigues Mortes with its salt pans and flamingos... The little-known but spectacular Cevennes mountains with world-class views, its chestnut forests and open plains but also its ancient traditions of silk and ceramic and leather productions and its 26.000 year old cave drawings of Chauvet.. Otherwise there's the unpredictable bohemian and arty town of Arles, the beautiful Provencal towns of Les Baux, Rousillon and Gordes with its hidden suprises... You can visit all of this on easy day-trips from Uzes...
