Located in the Languedoc region, Uzès is a jewel of a medieval/renaissance town which continues to be a center of culture, commerce, agriculture and activities. The beautifully restored center with its castle, the Duchy of Uzès, its renowned weekly markets on central plaza, the Place aux Herbes, its festivals of dance and music, its cafes, boutiques and antique shops, and many other attractions make it a charming place to vacation.
Uzès is near the famous Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard (13 km), as well as several historical cities such as Nîmes (25 km), Avignon (35 km), and Arles (60 km). Outdoor activities in the surrounding country side include swimming in the Gardon river, hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Sand beaches of the Mediterranean are about 80 km away.
The apartment is on the third floor of a recently renovated 18th century building near the center of Uzès and a two minute walk to the Place aux Herbes. [Please note - it is a third floor apartment and there is no elevator.] The living area of the apartment is 60 square meters (600 square feet) on two levels.

The bedroom opens out onto a lovely roof top terrace (12 square meters) with views of the Duchy and the rooftops of Uzès. Tasteful decoration with regional antiques and the original stone walls give the apartment charm and warmth.

The bedroom has one double bed (140 cm), and the mezzanine has a single bed with a pull-out bed that will comfortably accommodate one adult or two children.
