Fantastic holiday home!

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of 3 adults and 3 young children. We spent 5 lovely weeks at Les Palmiers.
Our first impressions were of space, comfort and luxury! The pool was inviting, the outdoor furniture begging to be relaxed in, the kitchen spacious and well equipped. Artworks adorn many walls. The entire property was clean and well maintained.
Marie, the housekeeper, is an absolute gem. She looked after us really well and nothing was too much trouble for her.
The photos don't do the place justice, it is even better than it looks. Despite there being 6 in our group and up to 3 visitors at one time, we never felt cramped. As the yard is completely walled off from the street and neighbouring properties, and the pool is securely fenced, we were able to let the kids play outside in complete safety.
Uzes is a wonderful town, steeped in history and architecture. We loved the Wednesday markets, restaurants, shops and cafes. Especially handy was the boulangerie two doors down; fresh bread and croissants every morning became a habit that was hard to break when the holiday was over!
We can only thank Maggie sincerely for accommodation that made our trip truly wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this fantastic review and the 5 stars you have given Les Palmiers. I am so glad that you enjoyed Les Palmiers -and of course Uzès so much. Staying 5 weeks at a property is quite different from staying one week or 2 weeks. Five weeks gives plenty of time to make a real judgement about a house. I really do not know what to add - you have said it all. I will pass on your praise about Marie to her. By the way, I think she is still missing your children! Thank you again and you are very welcome back at any time in the future.

Happy days

  • 5 of 5
We spent a month in Uzès, one of our best holidays ever. The lovely house with its secure garden & pool, so close to the centre of this beautiful town, meant that our large family could come and go and have great fun. We tried to treat the house and its valuable and attractive contents with the respect it deserved, but oh dear - one of our party broke a large pot, for which we were SO sorry. Nevertheless we felt totally relaxed and at home. In our dreams, where we own the property and have unlimited funds, we would add air-con, replace the old beds in the attic room and put a loo in the top bathroom ..... But these small deficiencies fade into insignificance in the overall picture and we have happily rebooked. We usually prefer new experiences on holiday, but the Provençal idyll is hard to beat. We endorse all the praise heaped on Marie, for whom nothing is too much trouble, and who always took the time for a friendly chat. Now, how about planning our return in 2016 ...?!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Elizabeth for this great review and for the five stars. I am so pleased that you enjoyed staying at Les Palmiers. The fact that you have already booked for 2015 (and even if you are joking about 2016) is a huge compliment to the house and of course, Marie. She will be delighted to hear how much you appreciate her. I also share your dream of how Les Palmiers could be made even better but meanwhile as you say, it is enjoyed by many, just as it is. As you know, there are fans in every room and since your departure, two extra fans have been added!
We look forward to seeing you again next year. Thank you. Maggie

Lovely villa exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We (family of 5: 2 adults and 3 small children aged 1/5/7) spent 3 great weeks in this lovely villa. We immediately felt at home at Les Palmiers. The house was spacious, full of character and had all the amenities we needed including a well equipped kitchen, laundry, an office area and fast/reliable internet which was crucial for working remotely. The town centre was an easy 5-10 minute walk. We had a car and loved exploring this beautiful region of France. There was as much, or as little, to do as we wished in the town of Uzès itself and the within an hour's drive in any direction. The parking garage next door proved to be invaluable especially at the end of long day trips. The entire rental process went very smoothly. Maggie was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. Marie was very friendly and attended promptly to any inquiries that we had, even arranging to have the pool serviced ahead of schedule for our use (the weather in April was tropical for us coming from Canada!). We would love to go back someday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this great review and the five stars you have given Les Palmiers. It is great to hear and really says something, that even after a stay of three weeks you still loved it as much as you did on the first day you arrived. To me it means that Les Palmiers is rather special. I very much feel that for a good holiday, the property needs to feel like a home rather than just a house - and I can see that you agree!! Les Palmiers is perfectly placed for a stroll into the Place aux Herbes and to enjoy all the charm of Uzès, for which of course you don't need a car. However with a car, as you say, there is so much to see not far from the doorstep. I'm glad you found our garage useful and you probably noticed that you could often park right outside the house. Thank you too for your kind words about Marie. I will pass them on to her. Thank you again, you and your mother-in-law, whom I know joined your family for part of the time, are welcome back at any time in the future. Maggie

Superb location and superior comfort

  • 5 of 5
We spent 7+ weeks in this wonderful home with all the comforts you could ask for, an internet that NEVER failed or was slow (vital for our work). A seven minute walk from the center of town; a supermarket 100M (three blocks) away, a bakery ten steps outside the door. Private and secluded but with the charm of backing onto a veterinarian and dog grooming shop that gave us momentary glimpses of life and a friendly wave when we collected our car from the garage- nice not to be totally isolated. We were here in horrible weather and home is a great nest for snuggling. Weather changed and the garden provided lots of great sitting places. Easy to walk lots of places. We have been very very comfortable here and would rent again in a heartbeat. Owner is accommodating and punctilious- if you have a problem, the caretaker, Marie, is immediately available and Maggie is too. Our problems were minor and of the sort any dwelling is likely to have from time to time. We are widely and wearily traveled and this home provided more than its money's worth. Suitable for two families and in a pinch, three.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this wonderful review and for the 5 stars you have given us. I am so glad that you both enjoyed your stay so much. Les Palmiers is often let by couples during the winter - as you have found, it is cosy for just two people but at the same time equally suitable for a larger family group as it sleeps 7. We have done our best to make the house as comfortable as possible and it is great to read your appreciation. Location, location, location and on this point I cannot agree more: Les Palmiers' position cannot be beaten. Even a minor problem can end up being irritating which is why we do our utmost to solve problems promptly. Marie will be very pleased to hear your comments too - she is a totally reliable godsend and I count on her completely to keep the house in good order. Thank you once again. I look forward to welcoming you or friends of yours to Les Palmiers again in the future.

A summer to remember

  • 5 of 5
Everybody agrees that the house and the city are brilliant. The house was very nice and lived up to our expentations - especially the children was very happy with the pool. We have been to Usez before and it is still a very beautiful place. The owners rep. was very helpfull when we had to find a doctor to one of the children. The river Gard, wine tours and Avignon was among our favorites.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and the 5 stars you have given us . We are so glad that you had a good holiday. I did not realise that this was your second visit to Uzes - but I am not surprised. Visitors keep on coming back to Uzes and the area. There is so much to do and see. I will pass on your comments about her to Marie the housekeeper - she is a huge asset to the house. It is great to have someone like her close at hand to call on. Her favourite saying is "there are no problems, only solutions" - a very positive philosophy with which I very much agree. Thank you once again and we hope that when you make your third visit to Uzes, you will choose to stay at Les Palmiers again.

Even Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Uzes – a couple + 2 single adults – and were all very happy with both Uzes and Les Palmiers. The house and grounds are even more attractive than the photos show. It was very hot during our stay but the lovely courtyard was a shady oasis for lazy afternoons round the pool, which was as sparkling as claimed. The house itself is airy and comfortable, very well equipped with kitchen items and appliances, and everything very clean and well maintained. Location is excellent: a short walk to the town centre and even shorter walk to the closest bakery and supermarket. We particularly appreciated Marie’s friendly welcome and the information Maggie emailed us on shops, restaurants and places to see. As this was our first visit to Uzes, we found this a great help in starting us off on our local explorations; there really is a lot to see and do without going very far afield. We have no hesitation recommending Les Palmiers to our friends, and hope to go back ourselves some time. The only thing we would do differently is that we would not bother to rent a car for the whole period. We found the local buses cheap and convenient, and would only need to hire a car for the occasional trip further afield.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this review and the 5 stars you have given us. We are very glad that you had such a great time. As you say, the house is perfect for holidays, although we also have regular long winter lets - a Canadian couple are coming back to stay this year for the sixth time. Uzes and the area are also totally beguiling I do not really know what more to say - you have said it ALL! I will pass on your comments to Marie, our fantastic housekeeper - she is a gem! Thank you very much once again. You are welcome back anytime
