The town of Saint-Maximin sprawls across the bottom of the St Baume Mountains in the heart of the Provence countryside.

There are a great range of attractions to see and galleries to explore throughout Saint-Maximin, especially throughout the medieval Jewish quarter towards the centre of town. The Synagogue and Rabbi’s house are particularly spectacular, and the vast basilica of St Madeleine, ornate fountains and the royal convent should certainly not be missed from any Saint-Maximin accommodation.

Canoes can be rented from Collias, a few miles away, from where you can paddle serenely along the river, passing under the remarkable Pont du Gard, and stopping for a picnic and a swim from one of thee many idyllic little river beaches along the way. The whole are is also crossed with walking, horse riding and mountain biking trails which run through into the Cevennes Mountains, the Camargue wetlands and across the lush hills and thick woods that surround Saint-Maximin.

A Saint-Maximin villa is a magnificent base for exploring the whole of Gard, and all the attractions, natural, historical and cultural, that the department is famed for. From the National Parks of the Cevennes Mountains and the Camargue wetlands to the amazing Roman monuments of Pont du Gard, Avignon and Nimes, the lush vineyards around Uzes to the stunning Mediterranean beaches, a holiday rental in Saint-Maximin provides a perfect base to explore all.

attractive & central

5 of 5
The property was in a nice old building and had retained some attractive period features. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and very quiet belying its fantastic central location. Gerard was welcoming, pleasant & helpful and easily contactable in the event of any problem (although we didn't have any, other than my husband managing to mess up the TV, something Gerard took in his stride, offering to come in to sort it out almost immediately). For us, the location was great; bars, restaurants & shops were only 2 steps away and best of all, there is a bakery 2 doors down, which opens at 6 o'clock in the morning and makes very good bread & pastries. In addition, the great market (Wed & Sat) is a couple of minutes walk from the flat The only (very) slight blemish was that parking very close wasn't that easy and I think it could be a problem in high season as parking is at a premium in Uzes then. However, Gerard does give details of suitable car parks when booking (and some of those are free). We would recommend this property to people wanting a short stay in Uzes - I think it is a little too small for a long period and has no outside space - as it is really well situated, comfortable & secure.

Perfect stay in a five-star villa

5 of 5
We spent a week in the house at the end of August 2016, and for two adults and two young children running around, it was absolutely perfect. It's very well equipped throughout, with high quality furnishings and an excellent kitchen. It's also very secure (in fact, the level of security was surprising, with automatic gates, a videophone, electric shutters around the entire house and so on). The outside area was idyllic - a decent-sized pool with a bit of a view (not heated, but when we put the cover over it during the day it might as well have been, and we were in there every afternoon). There's plenty of space to lounge by the pool, a great balcony terrace which we didn't use as much as we should have, and a great and very easy-to-use plancha for cooking on - haven't used one before and we were instant converts. Being all on one level was perfect with kids, and despite being very well-furnished it was relatively child-friendly. It was palatial for a family of four, but there's enough space that larger groups should feel very comfortable too. It was the extra luxury touches which were the real highlights - the big American fridge and icemaker, which we used constantly, the power shower, the walk-in closets, the roomy bath, the utility room with tumbledryer, a few toys for the kids and so on. Downsides? Well, the big one was the lack of air con, which we felt at the peak of summer, though fans (would have been nice to have more of them) and keeping the shutters down helped and it was less of a problem than it might have been. Plus, it gave us an excuse to dip into the pool each day. We also found the location wasn't quite ideal, as many of the places we wanted to visit (Arles, Carpentras, the Camargue etc) were an hour and a bit away and the kids weren't keen on long car journeys. That said, there's plenty to do a bit closer - Uzes and the Pont du Gard, for example. The village of Cruviers-Lascours itself was a bit of a non-event (and the villa is in the separate higher hamlet where not much is going on) but it's quiet, residential and peaceful. Béatrice & Koen who own the property were really friendly and helpful and unobtrusive, perfect hosts. All-in-all it was a fantastic holiday in a beautiful house and we'd love to go back one day.
