Don't miss this spacious apartment of a 16th century house with Pool in the centre of Uzès. It has been completely and beautifully renovated in the past year. It is located a minute's stroll from the famous Place aux Herbes. On a protected street of the historic center of this charming town, on the second floor (European), of a 4 century old building. While the lower two floors are occupied by the owners of the building, who were once owners of a well-known Château Hotel, this apartment is an completely independent home. You will be Chez Vous.
The restoration has strived to maintain the character and proportions of the original historic home, while providing all modern conveniences, and a lot of charm. It is pleasing to the eye and soothing to the senses. The remarkable free-standing circular stone stair case remains a tribute to the engineering skills of the builders of centuries ago. The wooden ceiling beams and old stone floors have been maintained throughout and lend a special historical ambiance to the rooms. The spacious and gracious living room looks out over the fig and bamboo trees, and the new swimming pool of the small garden of the property and the rooftops of the town, while comfortable seating, elegant furnishings and the light and airy atmosphere make for a relaxing experience. A small corner desk is looking out over the garden is perfect for writing or working with a laptop via the WIFI. There is air-conditioning in the living room for the summer and heating for the winter, as well as the possibility of a warming wood-burning fireplace.
The Master bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, fine linens, and antique furnishings, with double-glazed windows and exterior shutters to keep the room cool during the afternoon sun.
Up a ladder staircase is the second bedroom, a loft niche at mezzanine level, containing two beds, and likely to be greatly enjoyed by youngsters. Please note, that it is not a closed-in bedroom, and would not be suitable for adults. The kitchen is entirely new, has plenty of cupboard and drawer space, and contains an oven, stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, various small appliances and a table for dining. A bathroom with shower, and a separate toilet are within the apartment, while a washing machine is available in the attic one level up.
Uzès is a small town with a large reputation. Its wonderful buildings and architecture, along with its thriving cultural activities, and renowned weekly markets (Wednesdays and Saturdays) have contributed to its fame. The Guardian newspaper in England designated it as the second best place to visit in 2014 (the first was Cape Town), a remarkable endorsement for such a small town. The town has attracted many artists and artisans, as well as up and coming chefs, as the numerous excellent restaurants attests. Numerous attractive villages are in the surroundings of Uzès, and walks or bike rides or drives through the many vineyards to these ancient villages are very appealing. The long history of the area is perhaps best exemplified by the nearby Pont du Gard, arguably the best-preserved Roman Aqueduct anywhere, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Further afield lie all of the glorious attractions of Provence and the Languedoc. The historic city of Nîmes, with its remarkable Roman Arena and the Maison Carrée Roman temple, and lovely fountain gardens, only 25 minutes away. Avignon the City of the Popes on the River Rhone is 40 minutes away. Within an hour's drive lie ancient Arles, lovely St. Remy, dramatic Les Baux, the lovely , Camargue, thriving Montpellier, while a bit further offers Aix, Cassis, Marseille, and the Luberon. However, apart from the sites to visit, there is the incontestable leisure to be derived from wandering through Provence and its backwaters, enjoying the scenery, the history, the food and the wines - an unmatched experience.

A Perfect Retreat
Chez Nous is a perfectly located spot in Uzes. The flat is spacious and well equipped and so beautifully decorated. Susan and Adrian were delightful hosts. We are so glad that we paid attention to their recommendations for day tours in the area. We certainly maximised our brief stay. We will return for sure.
The very best thing to hear is that a guest will return and we are totally delighted to hear that we might see you here again in Uzes and Chez Vous! Thank you for writing. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Charming, quiet, picturesque!
My first visit to the south of France and arriving to this beautiful apartment up a winding castle like stairway to a gorgeous, quiet apartment just a minute from the Saturday market, cinema and all the restaurants......I never wanted to leave! All the beauty you could ever imagine you will find here. I'm recommending this place to everyone I know. Can't wait to return and stay for the summer.
Thank you so much for writing. We are so pleased that you like Uzès and "Chez Vous".
We would love to have you for a whole summer.
At home in Provence!
Susan and Adrian Doull have a gem property in the heart of beautiful Uzès. The house is tucked away on a side street just steps from the picturesque Place des Lices square in the main center of town. Their charming 3 story historic building has all the qualities we were looking for in a 'town' property: great location, quiet and comfort! The guest apartment is located on the top floor and reached by a spectacular winding stone staircase. The living room with high ceilings and a mezzanine extra sleeping loft (great for kids!) overlooks their garden and a small pool. Unfortunately, it wasn't pool season yet but the pool would be a welcome relief for cooling off from the summer heat. The bedroom is well appointed and has a very comfortable queen-size bed. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped. It was our second visit and we hope to return again soon.
Amazing stay in Charming Uzes
My family of four spent six nights at Chez Vous and had a fantastic time. The apartment is as lovely as the pictures show, it is located just a short walk from the main plaza, and it offers all the comforts of home. I enjoyed the beautiful décor, the comfortable bed and the daily ritual of making my coffee with a Nespresso machine. My husband and boys enjoyed the spacious living area when it was time to watch the Euro2016 futbol matches. The highlight of our stay at Chez Vous was getting to know our hosts, Susan and Adrian, who made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend Chez Vous if you are planning a trip to this beautiful area!
Thank you so much for this lovely review and for taking the time to write. I can say with all sincerity that we enjoyed meeting you and your charming young men just as much as you say you did.We are delighted that you enjoyed your time and appreciated the beautiful town that we love so much. I hope that some day you will make your way back. And next time there will be a pool.
All the best
Elegant, comfortable, and perfect stay in Provence
From the white stone staircase to the cool ambience of the apartment, Chez Vous was a dream apartment for my stay. It is an incredibly comfortable and spacious apartment, with whimsical and elegant decor and antiques that made it intriguing at every turn, and still pristinely kept. I felt so relaxed sitting with a cup of tea near the windows, with the back view of the garden and Uzès rooftops - a welcome serenity even when I needed to work. A provençal oasis! Susan and Adrian are the most gracious hosts, with the best insider tips. Both Wednesday and Saturday markets are a treat to check out and buy regional products, only a few minutes walk away. Also make sure to climb to the top of the “Duchy of Uzès” aka the Duke’s castle for incredible views. I highly recommend staying at Chez Vous!
We are so glad that you enjoyed the apartment and Uzès. It was a pleasure to have you. We are delighted that you discovered this very special town.
French elegance & New World Amenities
We arrived by rental car from Avignon & the owners actually walked down the street & guided us for parking. Lovely spacious apartment furnished with antiques is in the heart of historic Uzès - no car needed. Airy & quiet, it's on the third floor of an ancient, recently renovated townhouse. Solicitous owners, up-to-date kitchen & bathroom plus free WiFi all give new meaning to Chez Vous.
Biweekly open air markets on picturesque Place des Herbes are a 5-minute walk away. Our only caveat is that the spiral stone stairs would not suit the infirm.
Uzes has so much to offer including its famous twice weekly markets, full of local produce, local cheeses and wines. Visit its Castle and its Medieval Gardens, and the famous Roman Bridge, the Pont du Gard. Go to Nime s for more Roman monuments including the "Maison Carre" and it's Roman Arena
