Maison Théodorit is an elegant, 18th century townhouse located on a quiet, picturesque street in the historical centre of Uzès, close to the St Théodorit Cathedral with its famous 11th century Fenestrelle Tower. A lovely area with art galleries as neighbours, it is just a short walk along the beautifully restored, cobbled streets to numerous shops, cafes, restaurants and the colourful weekly market in the Place aux Herbes.
The property is 280m² in total over 3 floors with a private 80m² terrace on the second floor. It can either be rented as a whole to accomodate 10 guests or as 2 independent apartments, each with its own street entrance, the larger one (with terrace) suitable for 6 guests (Maison Théodorit) and the smaller ground floor apartment for 4 guests (Petit Théodorit - see property reference 8234981).
The house has been beautifully renovated to expose the original stonework and beamed ceilings whilst providing all modern comforts.
Opposite the house is a wonderful footpath which passes the cathedral and Roman ruins down into the Vallée de l'Eure for a pleasant walk or picnic by the river. There is also a large, open air, municipal swimming pool as well as tennis courts less than 10 minutes walk away.
A great place to relax in one of the loveliest Gallo-Roman towns in southern France renowned as the first Duchy with its fine cathedral and 12th century buildings.

There is also an office/library, laundry room and separate WC on this floor. On the 2nd floor a spacious, bright reception room, with a typical stone open fireplace, leads onto the main terrace, well-equipped with dining and BBQ facilities. The spacious terrace has lovely open views whilst the surrounding buildings provide complete privacy. It is a wonderful place to dine, relax and enjoy the sunshine. The kitchen is fully equipped and conveniently located next to the main reception room.

This is a beautiful, well appointed and comfortable home located in the heart of Uzes
We just loved staying in Maison Theodorit. A beautiful and very large house perfectly located in a quiet street within the old town. Everything we needed was there. The bedrooms were large. The living area huge and with a enormous outside terrace. We spent many an hour enjoying the terrace! Breakfast around the table in the lovely old kitchen was a treat, and we spent many a lovely evening out on the Terrace. We couldn't recommend this lovely house more!
We had a wonderful stay at Maison Theodorit. A very well appointed house, right in the centre of Uzes.
The town has a real buzz and is well provided with lots of good shops and restaurants, as explained in the very comprehensive guide provided by Stephanie.
The house has everything you could want, a spacious lounge, a lovely terrace, a well provided kitchen, comfortable beds and air conditioning. We are already planning our return.
A lovely place in a lovely town
This is the first rental that is much bigger than we anticipated from the photographs. Uzes is the nicest little town in France [that we have visited] and this house is located perfectly. Everything was exceptionally clean. The beds were very comfortable. The owner and the manager were great. Just a fantastic place to stay.
Une adresse très recommandable
une maison idéalement située au cœur d'Uzès, dans le quartier des galeries, à deux pas de la place des Herbes. La maison est très agréable et confortable (mention particulière pour les lits) avec une terrasse merveilleuse, où l'ombre et le soleil se côtoient tout au long de la journée. La possibilité d'être au calme, tout en étant au centre de la ville est vraiment appréciable.
Autre point fort, Stéphanie - la propriétaire - et Marie - qui s'occupe de la maison - ont su se montrer très réactives, et attentives. On a bien envie d'y retourner.
A Perfect Place
My wife and I rented this wonderful home in early October, and were joined by both of our grown children and their spouses. This is a truly magnificent and lovingly restored townhouse. The bathroom and kitchen fixtures are completely modern and up to date. It is located on a very quiet and very old, twisty, cobblestone street. The house is in excellent repair and has lovely furnishings. The outdoor patio is a large and wonderful place to have alfresco cocktails or dinner. The small, inner courtyard off the master bedroom is charming. The central living area is very large and completely comfortable, with lots of Michelin and other guidebooks. The "house guide" manual is exceedingly detailed, with everything you need to know about the house and the nearby area. The house is located within the walls of the old city of Uzes, with enchanting, curved streets and a beautiful central plaza with plane trees and an active market on Saturdays and Wednesdays (smaller). All essential services, including a large number of restaurants at a variety of price points, are within walking distance. There are quaint, close-by villages to visit on day trips. Stephanie was exceedingly helpful in locating taxi services for the long distance hauls to the Marseille and Montpelier airports and finding a chef to come to the house and cook a wonderful dinner for our anniversary. She is very prompt in responding to email inquiries. This is a perfect house, in a perfect town. I have had a number of rentals through HomeAway, both in the United States and abroad, and never had one as wonderful as this one.
Maison Theodorit lived up to our expectations. We were one couple and two single ladies. There was plenty of room for us all. An easy close walk to the centre of the village and convenient paid parking 50 metres away...only needed to pay for daylight hours and at a reasonable cost. The property was beautifully appointed and very clean. We spent our last night using the BBQ to make a delicious meal to eat on the terrace. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience Uzes in comfort. Hopefully we will return.
Enjoy the weekly colourful Provençal market and numerous cultural and artistic festivities and events which take place throughout the year in the town centre. Explore the beautiful picturesque towns and villages surrounding Uzes. Try out canoeing and hiking around the Pont du Gard, wine tasting in the Rhone, rafting the Ardèche, Mediterranean beaches, hiking or cycling, horse riding in the Camargue, and sightseeing the ancient monuments in Avignon, Arles, Nimes and Orange.
Other Activities: canoeing, historical sightseeing, cultural events
