Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Uzès - Provence: Uzes, Near Place Aux Herbes, 1 BR Apartment with Pool, 16th c home,

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 4

Don't miss this spacious apartment of a 16th century house with Pool in the centre of Uzès. It has been completely and beautifully renovated in the past year. It is located a minute's stroll from the famous Place aux Herbes. On a protected street of the historic center of this charming town, on the second floor (European), of a 4 century old building. While the lower two floors are occupied by the owners of the building, who were once owners of a well-known Château Hotel, this apartment is an completely independent home. You will be Chez Vous.

The restoration has strived to maintain the character and proportions of the original historic home, while providing all modern conveniences, and a lot of charm. It is pleasing to the eye and soothing to the senses. The remarkable free-standing circular stone stair case remains a tribute to the engineering skills of the builders of centuries ago. The wooden ceiling beams and old stone floors have been maintained throughout and lend a special historical ambiance to the rooms. The spacious and gracious living room looks out over the fig and bamboo trees, and the new swimming pool of the small garden of the property and the rooftops of the town, while comfortable seating, elegant furnishings and the light and airy atmosphere make for a relaxing experience. A small corner desk is looking out over the garden is perfect for writing or working with a laptop via the WIFI. There is air-conditioning in the living room for the summer and heating for the winter, as well as the possibility of a warming wood-burning fireplace.

Up a ladder staircase is the second bedroom, a loft niche at mezzanine level, containing two beds, and likely to be greatly enjoyed by youngsters. Please note, that it is not a closed-in bedroom, and would not be suitable for adults. The kitchen is entirely new, has plenty of cupboard and drawer space, and contains an oven, stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, various small appliances and a table for dining. A bathroom with shower, and a separate toilet are within the apartment, while a washing machine is available in the attic one level up.

The bedroom has a queen-sized bed and antique furnishings, with double-glazed windows and exterior shutters to keep the room cool during the afternoon sun.

Uzès is a small town with a large reputation. Its wonderful buildings and architecture, along with its thriving cultural activities, and renowned weekly markets (Wednesdays and Saturdays) have contributed to its fame. The Guardian newspaper in England designated it as the second best place to visit in 2014 (the first was Cape Town), a remarkable endorsement for such a small town. The town has attracted many artists and artisans, as well as up and coming chefs, as the numerous excellent restaurants attests. Numerous attractive villages are in the surroundings of Uzès, and walks or bike rides or drives through the many vineyards to these ancient villages are very appealing. The long history of the area is perhaps best exemplified by the nearby Pont du Gard, arguably the best-preserved Roman Aqueduct anywhere, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Further afield lie all of the glorious attractions of Provence and the Languedoc. The historic city of Nîmes, with its remarkable Roman Arena and the Maison Carrée Roman temple, and lovely fountain gardens, only 25 minutes away. Avignon the City of the Popes on the River Rhone is 40 minutes away. Within an hour's drive lie ancient Arles, lovely St. Remy, dramatic Les Baux, the lovely , Camargue, thriving Montpellier, while a bit further offers Aix, Cassis, Marseille, and the Luberon. However, apart from the sites to visit, there is the incontestable leisure to be derived from wandering through Provence and its backwaters, enjoying the scenery, the history, the food and the wines - an unmatched experience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the second time I have used Commendable Rentals. The apartment in Uzes is stunning, comfortable and most importantly a home. I can say enough about this company as they are at the ready for anything you may need to make your experience the best it can be. As far as the town of Uzes - it is definitely worth the trip. A walking village where the locals are wonderfully welcoming, great restaurants and history abound. The town is conveniently located to many other villages in this part of France. It serves as a great home base. If however, you don't want to travel, it is a great place to relax and rejuvenate.

Amazing stay in Charming Uzes

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent six nights at Chez Vous and had a fantastic time. The apartment is as lovely as the pictures show, it is located just a short walk from the main plaza, and it offers all the comforts of home. I enjoyed the beautiful décor, the comfortable bed and the daily ritual of making my coffee with a Nespresso machine. My husband and boys enjoyed the spacious living area when it was time to watch the Euro2016 futbol matches. The highlight of our stay at Chez Vous was getting to know our hosts, Susan and Adrian, who made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend Chez Vous if you are planning a trip to this beautiful area!

Elegant, comfortable, and perfect stay in Provence

  • 5 of 5

From the white stone staircase to the cool ambience of the apartment, Chez Vous was a dream apartment for my stay. It is an incredibly comfortable and spacious apartment, with whimsical and elegant decor and antiques that made it intriguing at every turn, and still pristinely kept. I felt so relaxed sitting with a cup of tea near the windows, with the back view of the garden and Uzès rooftops - a welcome serenity even when I needed to work. A provençal oasis! Susan and Adrian are the most gracious hosts, with the best insider tips. Both Wednesday and Saturday markets are a treat to check out and buy regional products, only a few minutes walk away. Also make sure to climb to the top of the “Duchy of Uzès” aka the Duke’s castle for incredible views. I highly recommend staying at Chez Vous!

French elegance & New World Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by rental car from Avignon & the owners actually walked down the street & guided us for parking. Lovely spacious apartment furnished with antiques is in the heart of historic Uzès - no car needed. Airy & quiet, it's on the third floor of an ancient, recently renovated townhouse. Solicitous owners, up-to-date kitchen & bathroom plus free WiFi all give new meaning to Chez Vous.

Biweekly open air markets on picturesque Place des Herbes are a 5-minute walk away. Our only caveat is that the spiral stone stairs would not suit the infirm.

A Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is exquisitely furnished and immaculately clean. We continued to notice evidence of the owners' thoughtfulness and brilliant interior design renovations each day. We felt that it was a very good value. The property could not be more centrally located, but is in a quiet, friendly, street. Susan and Adrian left a folder with all the information we would require, including restaurant recommendations. To their "out of town" list, we wish to add L'Artemise, a hilltop restaurant and approximately a 30 minute walk from the flat. Best seen in daylight, so luncheon is the time to go. The chef's 3, 4, and 5-course menus are inspired without being pretentiously and unnecessarily complicated. Susan and Adrian were always immediately reachable via email/text. They were extremely professional but also very friendly. We hope that we will return someday. Uzes is an interesting and beautifully preserved town and Chez Vous is a wonderful place to stay while there.

Outstanding village hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Chez Vous is an idyllic property in the heart of beautiful Uzès! The apartment, situated on the top floor of a fabulously renovated historic building, is perfectly appointed for a short or long term stay. The 3 story building is steps from cafés, restaurants, shops and the outdoor markets yet a peaceful oasis away from the busy central Place des Herbes. The furnishings are comfortable and chic with personal touches that make you feel at home and not in a rental property. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for preparing the abundance of fresh and local produce found at the markets or just a coffee and morning croissant. The bedroom is charming with a very comfortable bed and lovely bed linens. Adrian and Susan are welcoming and lovely hosts. I highly recommend Chez Vous and hope to return soon for a longer stay.

Enjoyable, comfortable Apartment in old Uzes

  • 5 of 5

To stay in a charming, newly renovated apartment in a 16th century house in an old French town is a treat. Even the staircase going upstairs is a unique design. The apt. is very spacious with rooms to the front and back ensuring a cross breeze in hot weather. We were very comfortable. It is centrally located. Although parking in old towns is always a problem, there is an underground parking garage nearby (you can purchase a weekly pass). Also visit the "Jardin Medieval" for history. Lots of restaurants nearby. We radiated out from Uzes to other towns nearby. We had an activity filled week here.
