About Stephanie Berry
We are an English family but have spent over 15 years living in France. Our passion for France and the French lifestyle has led us to buy several properties in France. Having moved back overseas in 2013, we decided to rent our home in Uzès as unfortunately our visits are far fewer than they were from the UK!
Stephanie Berry purchased this House in 2011
Why Stephanie Berry chose Uzès
We love the character of the old townhouses in Uzès. We completely renovated this house to expose the beautiful old stone walls and beamed ceilings whilst adding a modern, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms off each bedroom. We furnished it elegantly and comfortably, as we would our own home, in the hope that our guests find their home away from home.
What makes this House unique
The house is perfectly located for exploring historic Uzès on foot. With a rooftop terrace either side of the kitchen, you will enjoy the amazing light at both sunrise and sunset and understand why we designed the house with the bedrooms on the lower floors and the kitchen and living room on the top floors.

Fantastic stay. Great location
A delightful house with practical and beautiful living spaces, quality furnishings in a lively town
After every outing it was a delight to return to this house. The top level with large kitchen/ eating area with lots of natural light was our favourite meeting spot on cool or rainy days and on sunny days we opened the doors to the two attractive balconies on either side to enjoy open air and privacy combined. The linen, furnishings and kitchen ware were all good quality. On the practical side, having three bedrooms with ensuites plus another toilet on the level below the kitchen made for comfortable living. Everything was perfectly clean and beautifully presented. Stephanie, the owner, was so helpful beforehand, answering all my questions and concerns. During our week in Uzes, Annie was always available for any immediate problems or questions. The house is in a quiet pedestrian street which leads to the centre of the town. We were 5 minutes walk from the Saturday and Wednesday market, 5 minutes from the little supermarket, Spar, and so close to all the restaurants and shops in this beautifully preserved and very lively town. There was a boulangerie at the end of our street for our morning bread and crossiants. We enjoyed three inexpensive and good quality restaurants, Les Deux Freres d’Uzes, Ma Cantine and the creperie Le Bolee. And there are many more restaurants that come with recommendations. It was a 35 minute bus ride to Nimes for our day trip, and not far to drive to Canoe Collias for our canoeing under the Pont du Gard. We enjoyed exploring the historical side of Uzes as well as walking in the beautifully peaceful Vallee d’Eure. The 1900 museum is fascinating, 5-10 minute drive or 35 minute walk out of town. The town is small enough to wander around and yet big enough to sustain lots of shops and restaurants. Although we had hired a car, we did not want to have to rely on driving every time we wanted to do something. Here we had the town so easily accessible and a house that was in a beautiful old building but modernised to allow for enjoyable and spacious living. It is on four levels but this is a part of life in a traditional French building and necessary if you want the spacious living areas. We loved our week in Uzes and this had much to do with the town itself and particularly to this charming house.
Another fantastic vacation in Uzes! The house at Grande Bourgade was perfect for our family of 5.
This is second time we have rented one of Stefanie’s properties and La Grande Bourgade property did not disappoint. It is well furnished and decorated. Despite the record heat wave and lack of air conditioning, we managed to stay ‘cool’ by opening the doors to the terraces and creating Cross ventilation of the kitchen. There were floor fans in the bedrooms and kitchen which helped with the 40 degree heat during our two week stay. We love the location and proximity to some of our favourite spots in town. Veronique was incredibly welcoming and checking in and out was seemless. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home.
It was a pleasure to have you all back to stay. Well done for surviving this year’s exceptional heat wave! I’m glad you enjoyed the location as much as Maison Théodorit. Uzès really is all about wandering around the beautiful historic centre and enjoying the market square, shops, cafés and restaurants.
Maison Laurier makes the perfect home base for a holiday in the beautiful old town of Uzes!
We had a wonderful week at Maison Laurier. The home has character and charm while being tastefully renovated and furnished. We were four, (one couple from Vancouver Island and the other from Adelaide), although there are enough bedrooms to accommodate six and plenty of bathrooms. The large kitchen on the top floor is the hub of the home, with modern appliances and well stocked with dishes, etc. There are two decks, offering morning and evening sunshine, and the living room on the third level is comfortable for relaxing. Maison Laurier is located on a quiet street with a boulangerie at the top and a short walk to la Place aux Herbes for shops and cafes. We highly recommend Terroirs for lunch and tapas and just around the corner, Ten is a fabulous restaurant serving delicious nouvelle cuisine - owner, Kate, from Devon is delightful!
Maison Laurier's owner, Stephanie, was extremely pleasant and helpful when we were making the booking for our trip and we were most impressed with her attention to detail. Her greeting party, Annie and Veronique, were friendly and prompt. We always managed to find a parking spot close by.
Uzes is the perfect size - not too big to feel like a city but large enough to offer all the shops, restaurants and attractions you could need. A highlight was the walk through the park and up la montaignette for wonderful views of the town in the distance.
My only caution would be to people who can't handle stairs - the home is on four levels - but we all enjoyed the much needed exercise to work off the morning croissants!!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Maison Laurier and hope we can return one day!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed the house and all Uzès has to offer. That is our goal! We also hope you can return one day. It was a pleasure to have you to stay.
Wonderful place to stay!
The property is in a quiet neighborhood with private parking nearby. We were traveling to the south of France to attend a family wedding at the Pont du Gard, and wanted to spend a few days in the area before the wedding. Uzes is a great town, and terrific location for touring the area. The house is spacious and has a great kitchen with two terraces outdoors. It was very well supplied for cooking and entertaining. We loved our vacation there.
A stay in the centre of Uzes.
We had a lovely time in this very well equipped house. You really felt that you were living with the locals.
We were certainly fitter by the end of it as the kitchen is on the top floor with wonderful roof top views. The seating also enabled you to be outside but in the shade which worked really well.
Uzes is a nice place to explore with plenty of lovely restaurants .
