French Provencal Bliss!

We stayed in this beautiful apartment in Uzes for one week in April 2013 with friends. It far exceeded our expectations, what an amazing place! The street it was in was absolutely charming, close to town centre but very quiet. The house was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed and more. We utilised the courtyard BBQ a number of times buying fresh produce from the markets and shops, chatted around the breakfast table in the Provencal kitchen, lounged on the comfy sofas with wine at the end of the day and slept peacefully in the comfortable beds. The owners, Andrea and Charles were friendly and always easy to contact. The local contact person was also friendly and met us at the time we had planned.
We wanted an authentic French town without it being too touristy and Uzes certainly was this. It was a beautiful town with friendly people, great markets, wonderful restaurants, beautiful walks and quaint shops. We had spent a week in Paris before this and had caught the fast train to Nimes then hired a car for the week. The drive from Nimes to Uzes is only half an hour. We took a number of drives in the area as it was close to Avignon, Arles, Nimes and less than an hour to Mediterranean. We also had a wonderful day kayaking under the Pont du Gard which was very nearby. We recommend this town and this accommodation very highly and hope others will get to enjoy it as much as we did.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment. Uzes is indeed a magical place and you certainly found the essence of it.
Do visit again!
