Uzes Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 8

The villa has three beautiful double bedrooms at one end of the house and a fourth sleeping area with a comfortable divan on a mezzanine floor overlooking the dining room. Each bedroom is well furnished including built in cupboards for hanging and storage purposes. Two bedrooms have double beds and the third two single beds. There is a large bathroom with toilet and a separate shower room. A second toilet is located in the laundry room below the mezzanine. There is a medium sized fully equiped kitchen with table and four chairs. The bright and spacious living room leads out through patio doors to the veranda and terrace and also extends into a large dining area and adjacent laundry room. The mezzanine is situated above the laundry room. Outside the dining room there is a BBQ area with portable gas barbecue. The villa is attractively furnished and decorated throughout. Parking is available for one car within the grounds but there is additional parking alongside the property.

The area is perfect for swimming and canoeing in the Gardon at Collias (20 mins drive away) and at the Gorges de l'Ardeche which is an hour and a half's drive. The Gorges offer an unforgettable experience not only with the canoeing but also from the scenic drive around the area. It is always best to travel from West to East along the road overlooking the Gorges as this provides the best viewing and easy stop off points for photos.

Uzes itself is a photographer's paradise. There are photos to be taken around every corner. The Saturday market is a must - you will not be disappointed but best to get there early before the crowds. The surrounding villages will entrace you. Try not to miss out on the fortified village of Lussan set high up on a hill with its 180 degree views of the surrounding countrside, Gourdagues with its canal and La Roques sur Ceze with its waterfall.

The villa is also ideally situated using a back road via St Maximin (an attractive village in its own right) to get to the Commercial Centre outside of Uzes (8 min drive) where there is a large Carrefour and other superstores. On a clear day, this road offers splendid views to the far off hills of the Cevennes. Incidentally, do not miss out on the fantastic value for money luncheon menus at Carrefour. Maybe not an obvious tourist attraction but for feeding a large hungry family, it can't be beaten for quality,venue and service.

Back at the villa, its quiet, private but not isolated position offers a lovely refuge for the tired sightseer. The pool, attractively positioned amongst the olive trees, will add enormously to the enjoyment of your holiday. At the back of the garden there is a quiet patio with table, chairs and parasol for any member of your party keen to enjoy a quiet moment on their own.

In order to keep the garden tidy, a gardener will come once every 10 days or so principally to mow the lawn. The pool will be cleaned and monitored once a week.

Our family of four had a lovely relaxing Easter holiday at Les Olivettes. The property was very clean and comfortable, and obviously well looked after. The owners have thought of all that one might need, especially in the kitchen, and the welcoming bottle of wine and snacks were appreciated.
The kids really enjoyed the pool, and the outdoor area was perfect for relaxing with a glass of local wine and enjoying the abundant local produce from the Uzes market.
The location was ideal for exploring the region's many attractions, including the Pont du Gard, Uzes, Avignon, the Carmague, Nimes, wineries, etc, etc. The local Italian restaurant in St Siffret was very good.
I would highly recommend this property to friends and family.
