Perfect villa for our family vacation!
We absolutely loved our week's stay at this beautiful villa in Uzes. We are family of four from Boulder, Colorado, USA and the villa was ideal for us. It is beatifully renovated and there are many thoughtful touches that helped us to feel at home - including a well stocked kitchen with cooled beverages in the refrigerator upon our arrival. The villa is very well maintained, wonderfully furnished and impeccably clean.
The private patio is on two levels, with abundant seating in the shade or sunshine. Our teenage children made great use of the pool, and they asked to return early from sightseeing trips so they could spend time in the pool and on the patio.
There are two bedrooms on the top floor of the main building, plus an additional loft bedroom in the studio, which is on the other side of the courtyard from the main house. (Our 16 year old son enjoyed having his own space there, but it would not work as well for younger children.) Each bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, plenty of storage space and it's own bathroom; the bedroom that overlooks the patio also has a deck. The living room is on the middle level and the spacious kitchen / dining room is on the entry level.
The villa is on a lovely, narrow private road that is paved with pale stones and quite picturesque. (Google maps does not show the correct location if you look at the street view, so don't let that discourage you.) The private parking is about a block away, behind a locked gate.
The pretty town of Uzes is the perfect size for a vacation: big enough to have plenty to explore and good restaurants, but small enough to not have lots of urban junk around it. Unlike the towns we visited in Provence, Uzes had relatively few tourists, which we liked. There were two markets in the lovely Place aux Herbes while we were there - very festive, with lots of beautiful foods and local products. It's definitely a good idea to ask when the markets are and to plan to stay in town those days. It's fun to purchase fresh food at the market for a picnic in the courtyard.
We enjoyed the 4/ Sept. restaurant on the Place aux Herbes (good pizza and friendly service) and had our best meal of our vacation at Mille Zime, on the circle road. There are also plenty of little boutiques with gifts from the region.
Thank you, Olivier, for providing such a lovely home!
Owner's Response: Dear Kristen
Thank you for your very kind message
Really happy that you & your family loved both the house & Uzès
The best compliment is guests saying they feel in the house like at home
This was indeed the main idea of this project : welcome family, friends & guests during the season, share the place with everybody, inside & outside.
The renovation had to be a mix of history & contemporary touch
And Uzès is such a charming location as you described perfectly. I see that as I do you enjoyed all the great food we can find on the market & in the restaurants, far from the packed touristic areas
Thanks again & hoping to have you back home one day
