Uzes Townhome Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

''Maison Sept'' is a spacious early 17th century French townhouse, located in the historic centre of Uzes. It is approximately 100 steps to the Place aux Herbes, the lively central hub of Uzes a beautiful large square filled with plane trees, a fountain and wonderful shops and outdoor cafes. It is also the location of the twice weekly morning market where you can stock up on local produce, cheeses, meats, flowers, spices, and regional crafts.

Maison Sept is located on a narrow, cobbled medieval street, lined with town houses on both sides. There is an art gallery and an antiques shop right across the street, and just a few doors down, a bakery - essential for those morning croissants. Two doors down on our side is a lovely inn with a wonderful restaurant.

You can enter Maison Sept through two doorways, one directly into the kitchen, a typical south of France entrance, and the other into a foyer at the side of the house.

The house dates from the very beginning of the 17th century. Over the years it has been an inn twice, and has housed amongst its various occupants, a notary, a doctor and a maker of stockings. It has been expanded over the centuries and has been meticulously restored, combining ancient details with all the modern conveniences. It is an extremely comfortable and easy house to live in.

The kitchen is well stocked and modern, and contains all the requirements, whether you like to just make coffee, or cook elaborate gourmet meals. There is a gas cook top, electric wall oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender and food processor, nice stainless steel All Clad cookware and several types of coffee makers (we know what's important!).

At the back of the house, the living room opens onto a private walled terrace. It is cool and shady in the heat of summer, a private oasis where you can have breakfast or a lovely al fresco dinner.

An ancient stone spiral staircase winds its way through the 4 stories of the house. There are four bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with a double bed, and one with a pair of twin beds. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are furnished with French antiques and antique tribal carpets. Two of the bedrooms have balconies that open onto the courtyard below. There are two full bathrooms and a powder room.

On the third floor you can unwind in the family room, equipped with Internet TV and DVD player. Off this room is a mezzanine that serves as an office and is set up with wireless Internet and printer. You have use of the full laundry room, with both a washer and dryer. You are welcome to use the unlimited long distance telephone service to many countries worldwide.

Uzes is a beautiful, magical town to explore and enjoy. It is also a wonderful base from which to explore the region. There are many wonderful Languedoc and Provence destinations within a short day trip drive.

About Natalka Sharman

When my husband and I ran an antiques business for some years, we travelled to France on buying trips regularly and fell in love with Uzés.

Natalka Sharman purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Natalka Sharman chose Uzes

We knew we wanted to spend some significant amount of time in France and when this lovely house came on the market, we thought it was perfect for us.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the location of the house, almost in the heart of the town, but on a side street where we could get away from the bustle of the main square. The street has a great community which we also love to be a part of.

Best Place Ever!

  • 5 of 5
I'm reluctant to write a review, since I'd like to keep this place a secret. Sadly, I think the secret is out. We (6 women) stayed for 2 weeks this September, and we all want to return.
The house was fabulous, Uzes was wonderful, and there was so much to see and do in the area. I think we only scratched the surface.
Annick was very helpful, as were the neighbours Roberto and Eric.
The house and area are highly recommended. I have lived and travelled in France, and this is my favourite part.

Another Wonderful Week in Maison Sept!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week here with friends in May of '12 and really wanted my husband and other family members to experience Uzes and this wonderful house. I had been talking about it for over a year, and everyone in our party of five agreed that it is just as lovely as I had said. It is a comfortable, beautifully furnished house with every convenience and right in the heart of historic Uzes. I cannot say enough positive things about the house, the town, or our little sojourn there a couple of weeks ago. Never enough time; next time I am staying longer! Last visit the platane trees were just coming into bloom, and this trip, they were beginning to lose their leaves, but nevertheless beautiful. And thanks to Annick, who was very helpful in answering any of our questions.

fantastic, lovely home

  • 5 of 5
the house is absolutely fantastic, better than the pictures show. It is comfortable, tastefully decorated and warm, with Provence style furniture. The house is clean and well maintained.
The kitchen is out of this world. The rooms are spacious and each one has a little private terrace. The indoor patio is romantic and peaceful. We couldn't recommend it more.
The owner is very helpful. Any question about the house, Uzes or the area were promptly answer. The entire moving in and out procedures were painless. The wi-fi worked in every room.

In Love with Uzes and Maison Sept

  • 5 of 5
Two friends and I just returned from a week at Maison Sept, and it's hard to add anything new to the wonderful and thorough reviews already written. However, I do want to say that Maison Sept and its owners certainly live up to the excellent reviews, and the house was even nicer than we had anticipated. It's a beautifully decorated yet comfortable house in a charming little town, and a week's visit does not do it justice. We were torn between wanting to tour the area and just lingering in the Maison with a loaf of bread, great cheese, and the wonderful rose wines of the region. The wheels are already turning for a longer return visit next year with family!

Fabulous Vacation House in Uzes!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Maison Sept last summer, and had an absolutely fantastic time. The house was spacious, comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. The large kitchen was loaded with every utensil and appliance we needed to prepare scrumptious meals from local food, and all amenities in the rest of the house (e.g. washer, internet, phone, etc.) worked perfectly. Any questions about the house or travel in the vicinity were promptly answered by Suzy, the property manager. She was extremely warm and approachable, and was of great help in orienting us to the area. We loved our quieter days spent roaming the shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and historical sites of Uzes, and we equally enjoyed travelling to many of the lovely local towns and villages. Some of our favourite places included Roussillon, Arles and Les Baux. We recommend kayaking to the Pont du Gard in summer, as this was an absolute highlight for us, and it is only about a 20 minute drive from Uzes! Other nearby attractions that we discovered included the majestic town of Lussan, and the gorgeous pottery of Saint Quentin la Potterie. We took a wine tour in Gigondas which was outstanding. We would highly recommend Maison Sept and the town of Uzes to anyone wanting to feel pampered in the south of France!

A great Christmas house

  • 5 of 5
We came here for Christmas this year and it was exactly as we’d hoped. The house made for a perfect Christmas house – warm and cosy and full of character. The owners had very kindly left us a tree, which really added to the festive feel. We loved being just a hop from the central square and its apparently endless Christmas market. The weather was perfect – crisp and clear and barely a drop of rain.

The house was fabulous – well-furnished and equipped, but its real beauty was the location. It was slap-bang in the middle of Uzes, with all its lovely shops and restaurants. There was a baker’s shop almost on the doorstep and gorgeous country walks down by the aqueduct. I would recommend it unreservedly, except that we’d love to come again and don’t want too much competition!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time! We have never been to Uzes for Christmas ourselves, but it seems like it would be a great place for the holidays. Someday...

Uzes is a beautiful medieval town in the south of France. It is small enough to be easily explored on foot, yet contains enough shops, restaurants, historical sites and nature walks to keep you busy for days! It is located on the border of Languedoc and Provence, making it an ideal base for exploring the south of France. It is easy day trip distance to wonderful towns like Avignon, Nimes, Montpellier, Saint Remy and Marseille. It is an easy drive also to many beautiful beaches and wineries.
