About Maison de Mathilde

This property represents the realization of a dream of a group of Aussies who enjoy food, wine, history, good company and fun.

Maison de Mathilde purchased this house in 2013

Why Maison de Mathilde chose Uzès

We all have an interest in everything French and wanted to be in a lively historic village with markets, restaurants, local places of interest, beautiful surrounding countryside with easy access.

Our requirement was a renovated ancient stone house within easy walking distance of all amenities -patisseries, boulangeries, markets, wineries, restaurants, cafes. This house ticks all the boxes!

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because of its character and charm, beautiful back yard and location within an easy stroll to numerous restaurants, cafes and the twice-weekly market.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in an idyllic walled village. Madelaeine was there to meet us on time and with umbrella in hand - was raining at time - although this only lasted one day.

Sun shone the next day and altough not warm enough to swim during our stay the pool still looked inviting.

Market day on Wednesday was impressive however this was nothing compared to the Market on Saturday - the entire town was transformed into one big market.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect house to share with friends in Uzes

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a home away from home in the South of France to share with friends?? Look no further than Maison de Mathilde in the most beautiful vibrant medieval village of Uzes. This charming 300 year old stone home is in a lovely cobbestoned street and only a 5 minute stroll to the Place du Herbes in the very centre of magic Uzes. The local Saturday market, recently awarded the best provincial market in France is held in the Place du Herbes every Saturday and it has to be seen to be believed. This house is perfect to share with friends as it has four good sized bedrooms over 2 floors that are all beautifully furnished and then the ground floor has an open plan cosy lounge and dining room adjoining the well stocked modern kitchen which opens straight onto a lovely outdoor dinning area. Did I mention the pretty garden swimming pool ??? With Uzes enjoying the typical long warm summers of the South having a private pool and separate air conditioners in every bedroom is a real asset. Combine the quality of the local produce with such a lovely home we find ourselves out and about exploring during the day then returning home to enjoy a home cooked meal at night. The best thing about Maison de Mathilde in Uzes is that your guests can simply walk out the front door and stroll around the ring road or town centre enjoying all the town has to offer and you don't need to get the car out. Uzes has numerous good restaurants, both fine dining and casual and so many interesting shops and art galleries that there is something for everyone. This was our fourth visit to Uzes, which we just love for its real French town authenticity and for its proximity to the surrounding rolling hills, vineyards and the best the South of France has to offer....Base yourself here and you will be far from the cruise ships and tourist buses and yet only 15 km to Pont -du-Gard, 25km to the beautiful Roman town of Nimes, 40 km to Avignon to visit the old Popes Palace, 45 km to Chateauneuf-du-Pape for wine tasting, 50 km to Orange to visit the amazing Roman Theatre, or perhaps do the 130km to Aix-en-provence ...all doable day trips. Needless to say I am a fan. This was our 4th trip to Uzes and to Maison de Mathilde...we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Nothing will disappoint - except having to leave

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the idyllic village of Uzes after an easy and pleasant drive from Lyon airport. The town was more than l had hoped it would be - a traditional and authentic French village with lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. Maison De Mathilde is ideally located just off the main square with a short stroll to everything you need. There's even a movie theatre in the same street. The house was exactly as displayed on their website but even more beautiful and elegant. The kitchen was fully stocked, the bedrooms large and all bathrooms were modern & spacious. All linen was provided and were fresh, crisp and gorgeous. The house is beautifully furnished and wonderfully and authentically restored. The friendly house keeper met us with the key promptly and made it very clear we could call her at any time with any queries or concerns. We spent many afternoons in the swimming pool as we had a very hot spell in the 7 days we were there so it was a very popular spot after spending our days driving to local villages & attractions (Avignon, Nimes, St Remy, Pont Du Gard, Carrieres de Lumieres are all close by). There are many wonderful restaurants within a very short walking distance. None we visited disappointed and I would highly recommend them: Beca Vin, L'Artemise & Entraigues (rooftop) are all in gorgeous settings and the food was incredible. The local Sunday market is located right in the main square and should not be missed. We spent the day buying lots of fresh produce and then bringing it back to the house to BBQ. 4 couples or a family can easily stay here and be very comfortable. We would thoroughly recommend staying at Maison De Mathilde. The only negative was having to leave.

Oasis in Uzes

  • 5 of 5

Four of us have just spent a gorgeous week at Maison de Mathilde in July 2017.

The house is spacious and beautifully renovated throughout, it is airconditioned, has good wifi, and a large kitchen with modern appliances, a nespresso pod machine and a dishwasher. There are four large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and downstairs is the perfect setting for entertaining or relaxing, double doors open onto the outdoor entertaining area, with BBQ and swimming pool. The perfect setting to relax and cool off after sightseeing, with great friends, food and wine.

The house is perfectly located on a pedestrian street only a few minutes’ walk from the shops and sights of Uzes; where you can walk to a local winery, fromagerie, boulangerie, amazing homewares and clothing boutiques and there are also many excellent bars and restaurants throughout the town. One of the highlights is the fresh produce market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Saturday market also has stalls selling clothing, plants and homewares.

The history of the village, is well preserved in the Duché palace, Cathedral and the Medieval garden and tower. The climb to the top of the tower rewards you with a fabulous view of the village and surrounding area. Just outside the village there is a lovely walk along the river where you can view the remnants of the ancient Roman Aqueduct.

We visited several places within a short drive of Uzes; the Pont du Gard, Nimes which has a Roman arena and Baux de Provence.

We loved our stay and highly recommend a visit to this beautiful part of France.

lovely, lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I had been to this area of Provence before but never to Uzes. A beautiful old town with every amenity and close to other places worth a visit. My 5 girlfriends and I stayed for 2 weeks in this wonderfully restored and comfortable old townhouse. Right in the centre of town so it was within walking distance of everything Uzes has to offer. We had masses of room, lovely bathrooms (except for the scary overhead shower in the 1st floor bathroom!), pretty garden, pool, outdoor area and well equipped kitchen. Absolutely everything you could wish for was there and, once we had worked out how to use the high tech oven, we did lots of cooking, wine drinking and relaxing either outside or at the roomy dining table inside. Thoroughly recommend it for a home away from home stay in this part of Provence.
