ROMANTIC GETAWAY IN A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE JUST MINUTES FROM UZÈS

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in St-Laurent-la-Vernede - La Maison du Fort

Charming village house 2 bedrooms - 1 bathroom - 10 minutes from Uzès

This adorable village house is located on a quiet square overlooking the old fort in the medieval village of St Laurent la Vernède, 10 minutes from Uzès. The house was completely renovated in 2010, adding modern amenities with an old-fashioned style. This designer chic house accommodates up to 6 people, but for a couple, it is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. The front terrace looks onto a pedestrian-only village square. The house is walking distance to the bakery, restaurant, pétanque court and weekly produce market. It has one bedroom upstairs, a loft above the living room and a daybed in the living room. Downstairs, there is one large bathroom with an Italian shower and separate toilet room. The entire house has been beautifully decorated in a Provencal style and is well heated during the winter.

You enter the house directly into the living room, which is comfortably furnished to make you feel right at home. It has an old stone fireplace, comfortable couch and reading chairs, an iPod player and a shabby-chic decor. There are many windows to let the natural light in. The kitchen is located downstairs and is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, gas stove, oven, dishwasher, coffee maker and washing machine. There is a clothes rack inside and clothesline outside to dry your clothes in the warm breeze. There is a dining table for up to 6 people in the kitchen for cooler days or evenings. Just outside the living room is the terrace, where you will find a barbecue, and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The terrace is in a lovely, shady setting, surrounded by plants and flowers. Outside lights softly illuminate the terrace, for a decidely romantic atmosphere!

Idyllic little Cottage !

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02-Jul-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
What a pretty little house ! We arrived and were warmly welcomed, by Dominique, who showed us around the cottage and suggested various places to visit.
The house was very clean and well equipped and full of all kinds of wonderful curios that added to its charm. The beds were extremely comfortable with good linen and the sofas cosy and plump with cushions.
An electric kettle in the kitchen would be a good idea and some attention to the bottom tread of the bathroom staircase. The two terracotta steps are a little deceptive,especially at night !
I'm sure that a couple of comfortable steamer chairs and some planting, would make the little terrace , to the front of the house,more appealing. It could be a lovely place to sit, with a glass or two of wine,after a day exploring local markets and glorious countryside. However, the table and chairs provided, are adequate, but not relaxing.
We should like to thank everyone who has helped to make our stay in St. Laurent, so special. Wall to wall sunshine and magnificent scenery, did their part, but the cottage was a perfect little haven. It should be noted that the village bar/ cafe, although open at lunchtime, is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings. So for those wanting to eat out locally, a car journey, to another village, will be necessary.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment! We really enjoyed getting to meet you and your family. The beginning of the rental season was a bit hectic trying to get the house ready, but now we have redone the terrace with new flowers, plants and a hammock. We have purchased 2 folding lounge chairs that are available for renters to use on the terrace or on the small square just in front of the terrasse. The square is better if you are looking for sun, as the terrace is shaded by trees. No matter where, it is calm and relaxing inside the fortress walls.
