Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Uzes - Place du Marché

1 Bedroom apartment on the village square

Stylish apartment in one of the original 17th century buildings on the Place aux Herbes, in the center of historic Uzès. Freshly renovated with all modern amenities, but retaining the calm and charm of the original space.

Tastefully and comfortably appointed, this is a space that invites relaxation - a cool retreat within the bustling center of this historic town.

Each Saturday and Wednesday the famous Uzès markets are held in the beautiful Place aux Herbes, overlooked from the apartment - close enough to sense the bustle, but nicely removed to provide quiet and sanctuary.

Place du Marche - our apartment in the heart of Uzes - provides the perfect base from which to enjoy the history, gastronomy, scenic beauty and activities of the Gard region. Uzes itself is a town rich in history and culture, sitting calmly with authority atop its hill overlooking the pretty Alzon River.

Within 10 kms you will discover rustic villages, boutique wineries, a rich variety of local and international cuisine and produce, solitary walks and rides, quiet streams, majestic rivers and sweeping vistas. An hour will deliver you to the historic centres of Avignon, Nimes, Arles, Orange and Beaucaire-Tarascon, and the vast expanses of the Cevennes National Park and the Parc Natural de Camargue.

A little further afield are the beaches of Montpellier, and a suite of justifiably famous and much-photographed towns such as Gordes, Rousillon, Saint Remy-de-Provence and Vaucluse.

Famous for its medieval heritage and mellow atmosphere, with narrow streets and elegant 16th and 17th century mansions, Uzes is a hidden gem in the south of France.

First settled over 2,500 years ago, Uzes first grew to prominence as a provincial centre under Roman settlement around 120 BC, when the town was known as Ucetiae, located on the same site as the current town centre. From here, the Romans built the extraordinary aqueduct to deliver water to Nimes, 20kms away, leaving later generations to wonder at the grandeur and elegance of the magnificent Pont du Gard.

Though not spared the traumas of the religious strife afflicting much of France during the Reform period, a cast of wealthy nobles, traders, administrators, agriculturalists and industrial innovators has provided Uzes with resilience and recuperative powers over the centuries, and the town has benefited from church and royal patronage throughout much of its existence. Illustrating the town's importance in the Middle Ages, Charles VIII owned the King's Tower that forms part of the castle dominating the town's centre.

Industries in silk, pottery and ceramics provided wealth and influence.

The Duchy of Uzes, the first Duchy of France, has maintained a special place in French history right through to the present day.

Today, Uzes is accessible and comfortable, but has lost none of its deep sense of history. This is a very special town in a very special part of France.

Why Sasha Rimington Manager chose Uzes

The incredible location, the light, the quiet, and the charm of its history captivated us. We wanted to create an elegant and relaxing space that we and others could enjoy as a home away from home in Provence.

What makes this apartment unique

A calm and elegant space in a beautiful location. Being able to look out on the daily activities of the town centre, and feel part of village life from a private space is just so relaxing and special.

Even Better Than It Looks!

  • 5 out of 5
Warning: the listing for this apartment is not accurate - It is even better than the photos. The furnishings are immaculate, the decor classy yet comfortable, the living areas deceptively large and the location is unbeatable. Overlooking the square, the shutters keep out the noise and light, but the open windows let in the gentle sounds of the market, buskers and people below. We spent a wonderful week exploring the beautiful and well kept town and the underground parking spot meant day trips were easily manageable, a real bonus when street parking is at a premium. There is so much to do nearby, such as kayaking at the Pont du Gard and visiting Nimes, Avignon and St Quentin-Le-Potterie, but we also found it hard to leave the apartment, as it is a relaxing and tranquil space to sit, read, drink ,eat and listen to the sounds of the markets and bustle outside.
The owner and manager were friendly and incredibly helpful, our late arrival was a non-issue and advice, suggestions and restaurant guidance were very helpful. The arrival instructions and information provided were thorough and easily the most user-friendly we encountered in our months of travel.
We would highly recommend this apartment as a base for exploring the Gard region, and we hope to return and explore further afield using this as a base that feels like home.

Owner's Response: Hello, and thank you so much for your very kind feedback. We really hoped that we had struck the right note in terms of 'style versus comfort', and that people would feel they could completely relax in the apartment as a home away from home. We're so glad you enjoyed the area and beautiful Uzes as much as we do.
