Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Uzès

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Maison Sept' is a spacious early 17th century French townhouse, located in the historic centre of Uzès. It is approximately 100 steps to the Place aux Herbes, the lively central hub of Uzès – a beautiful large square filled with plane trees, a fountain and wonderful shops and outdoor cafes. It is also the location of the twice weekly morning market where you can stock up on local produce, cheeses, meats, flowers, spices, and regional crafts.

Maison Sept is located on a narrow, cobbled medieval street, lined with town houses on both sides. There is an art gallery right across the street, and just a few doors down, a bakery - essential for those morning croissants. Two doors down on our side is a lovely inn with a wonderful restaurant.

You can enter Maison Sept through two doorways, one directly into the kitchen, a typical south of France entrance, and the other into a foyer at the side of the house. The house dates from the very beginning of the 17th century. Over the years it has been an inn twice, and has housed amongst its various occupants, a notary, a doctor and a maker of stockings. It has been expanded over the centuries and has been meticulously restored, combining ancient details with all the modern conveniences. It is an extremely comfortable and easy house to live in.

The kitchen is well stocked and modern, and contains all the requirements, whether you like to just make coffee, or cook elaborate gourmet meals. There is a gas cook top, electric wall oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender and food processor, nice stainless steel All Clad cookware and several types of coffee makers (we know what’s important!).

At the back of the house, the living room opens onto a private walled terrace. It is cool and shady in the heat of summer, a private oasis where you can have breakfast or a lovely al fresco dinner.

An ancient stone spiral staircase winds its way through the 4 stories of the house. There are four bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with a double bed, and one with a pair of twin beds. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are furnished with French antiques and antique tribal carpets. Two of the bedrooms have balconies that open onto the courtyard below. There are two full bathrooms and a powder room.

On the third floor you can unwind in the family room, equipped with internet TV and DVD player. Off this room is a mezzanine that serves as an office and is set up with wireless Internet. You have use of the full laundry room, with both a washer and dryer. You are welcome to use the unlimited long distance telephone service to many countries worldwide.

Uzes is a beautiful, magical town to explore and enjoy. It is also a wonderful base from which to explore the region. There are many wonderful Languedoc and Provence destinations within a short day trip drive. We would strongly encourage you to plan your stay to start on Friday or earlier in the week, if possible, so that you can be here to experience the market on Saturday morning. It is one of the most extensive markets in the south of France, and a lovely experience.

About Natalka Sharman

We live in Canada but love to spend time in France because of the wonderful lifestyle, the people, the language and the history.

Natalka Sharman purchased this house in 2010

Why Natalka Sharman chose Uzes - Pont du Gard

We decided to buy our home in Uzes because we fell in love with the town on one of our antiques sourcing trips and knew we had to spend as much time here as possible.

What makes this house unique

We love living in a small town in France. We have gotten to know many of our neighbours, who are very friendly, and we enjoy being able to go to any number of restaurants, art galleries, beautiful boutiques and a lovely twice a week market, just outside our door.

Very happy traveler!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home in a peaceful location and yet just minutes away from probably the prettiest square of any town in France we have ever been in. Uzes is a delight and so is this house. It is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and well equipped. The owners are extremely helpful and we spent many wonderful days on their recommended trips. Go, enjoy and be inspired by this gorgeous house in a perfect location.

Quiet in the middle of the action!

  • 5 of 5

This home is set up perfectly for those who want to stay put or take day trips into the area. We were 2 couples who love to travel together but love our privacy. This home and location worked quite well! We took some day trips (Pont du Garde and Nimes) and also just wandered in the town and sketched and painted. Or napped. The house is very well equipped. We were talking about returning long before we left!

Special family time

  • 5 of 5

The pictures show exactly what the place is like. Lots of room to be together or have personal quiet time. All our needs were met. The location is ideal for wondering the streets of Uzes or exploring the country side. The market on Saturday is amazing as well as the smaller one on Wednesday. Locals were all friendly and helpful. I'm already planning my next visit to the area!

Another Happy Christmas in Maison Sept

  • 5 of 5

One common thread running through the reviews of Maison Sept is a certain reluctance to praise it too highly in case it is booked up the next time you want to visit - and that goes double for our family as we have just spent a third lovely Christmas there in five years. Still, it would be unfair on the owners not to join in with the other common thread of the reviews - that this is a wonderful house in a beautiful town. Indeed, in our eyes, the most striking feature of Maison Sept is that it is such a short walk from the central square with its regular markets and various bars and restaurants and yet manages to feel so away from it all once you close the front door. Inside, the only real change to the comfortable, spacious and pragmatic set-up we noticed from our last visit is that the WiFi now works strongly all over the house. So, another thoroughly enjoyable trip to Uzes again enhanced by Maison Sept - and next time we visit we plan to have trained the children up to do the breakfast run to the next-door bakery by themselves ...

We are very interested in antiquing, and find that Uzes is a great central base for antiquing in the south. There are huge antique fairs in Beziers, Avignon and Montpellier every other month. There are also many small weekly brocantes in the area. Our favourites are L'Isle sur la Sorgue on Sundays, Villeneuve les Avignon on Saturdays and Aix-en-Provence on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information, just write us a note. We are always happy to talk about antiques!
