Perfect family holiday location
Eleven of us - three generations - tested the listing description of this house and found it to be completely accurate! It was cool and spacious and well and interestingly furnished, with the best-equipped kitchen ever. The pool was lovely, as was the terrace, with its beautiful views over the garrigue. The centre of Uzes was indeed only 10 minutes' walk away, so that getting fresh bread & croissants for breakfast, and visiting the fascinating medival centre of the city were both a pleasure - not always the case with very small children in tow. This is an area we know fairly well, and it was very hot, so going far afield was limited to various family members kayaking on the Gardon to the Pont du Gard, visiting the photography biennale in Arles, and mountain biking. Alain & Marie were kind and helpful, and we're very grateful to them for taking the trouble to return a precious blanket left behind by one of our granchildren. So, all in all, I can't recommend the house highly enough for a famly holiday.
Beautiful home in delightful Uzes
Beautiful home within easy walking distance of central Uzes with all its facilities of cafes, restaurants, shops and markets. Very comfortable, well decorated and stylish with fully stocked kitchen, the house is over 3 floors with its entrance on the top floor with games room, moving down to the bedrooms and finally kitchen on the lower floor opening to the pool area and garden - the pictures do not really do it justice! One minor point - don't forget to ask for towels!
Alain and Marie are a lovely couple and very attentive.
A wonderful family holiday - the best ever!!
We are an extended Australian family of 11 aging from 7 to 59 who decided to take the "holiday of a lifetime" in memory of our dear and much loved "Grandma Audrey" who passed away last year.
We had a wonderful holiday as guests in Alain and Marie's holiday home in Uzes which, over the course of our two week stay, became "our home" too.
It is ideally located, an easy 10 minute walk down rock-wall-lined streets to the old town centre of Uzes - an enchanting place of ancient buildings that give glimpses of lives long-gone but a culture that is still so treasured today by the French.
Every morning at 6am Uncle G ventured down to "La Nougatine Boulangerie" to get the most delicious, freshly baked croissants & bread which were gradually consumed over the next couple of hours as the "waves" of family members woke to face the day. Marie had kindly left us a jar of her home-made and delicious apricot jam which was exquisite and had pride of place on the breakfast table.
The grandkids (aged 7, 10 & 12) loved the pool - especially refreshing after a (compulsory - according to their mother) busy day of sightseeing.
It was a great base to visit tourist sites or just "chill out" - we did lots of both! Some of the highlights include: visiting the bi-weekly markets in the Place de Herbs; climbing the Castle tower; being fascinated by the array of medicinal plants in the Medieval Gardens; absorbing the history of the Museum; swimming and canoeing at the Pont de Arc and the Pont de Garde and, for the more healthy and motivated family members, climbing Mont Saint Victorie (Cezanne's mountain). NB: This Grandma passed up the climb offer and "volunteered" to stay home and "watch" the grandkids!! .
Alain and Marie were there to meet us when we arrived. The house was clean and well maintained. It is over three floors - some stairs but not too onerous. After a hip replacement I was able to get up and down with no problems. The house was spacious - plenty of room to get some "alone time". It was clean and well maintained and very, very relaxing.
Marie's kitchen was very well equipped - plenty of everything - just a delight! My son is a chef and he cooked up a storm. He especially loved the electric ovens.
Some things to note: the streets of old Uzes are narrow and can be tricky. There are stairs but they are doable.
Thank you for a holiday to remember! Merci Beaucoup! Chris
Dear Chris and delightful family,
We are very moved by your comments on our house and on our beautiful region. We are very pleased to have met you and to have contributed to the "vacation of your life".
There is nothing more beautiful to share than happiness!
A big thank you to your kind-hearted family
Alain & Marie.
très belle maison, parfaitement équipée, aménagée avec beaucoup de charme
Nous avons été là avec huit adultes, parents et trois enfants avec leurs petits amis. Nous avons occupé quatre pièces. Chaque était aménagée avec beaucoup de charme. Les soirées nous avons passé devant le cheminé il y avait beaucoup de bois à notre disposition gratuite. La cousine était parfaitement équipée et il nous faisait plaisir d'y cuisiner. Ca ne prenait que quelques minutes pour promener au centre ville - quand même il était clame - et aussi en quelques minutes on arrivait sur un sentier raide à la vallée d'Alzon. Madame et Monsieur Ravaux nous ont accueilli très aimablement avec des fleurs et une bouteille de vin rouge sur la table. Pour nous tous il était un séjour parfait!
La maison est une très bonne place pour découvir Uzès et son entourage.
Merci Mme Terres pour votre très agréable appréciation. Nous avons été heureux de vous accueillir dans notre maison et le ferons, bien volontiers, à nouveau si vous en avez le souhait.
Nous avons passé une semaine entre amis (3 familles) dans cette superbe maison. Nous avons eu un temps fabuleux, la piscine était vraiment très appréciable, d'autant plus qu'elle est sécurisée.
La maison est vraiment très spacieuse, nous n'étions pas les uns sur les autres, chacun pouvant profiter de son espace quand il le souhaitait.
La situation à 10 minutes du centre-ville est vraiment agréable, pas besoin de prendre son véhicule pour profiter des commerces de proximité.
La région est magnifique, avec beaucoup de sites à visiter aux alentours.
Nous reviendrons dans cette région, et pourquoi pas chez M. et Mme RAVAUX, propriétaires fort sympathiques.
We definitely more than enjoyed our stay
The house is really perfekt for a bigger group (we where 4 families), because the kitchen and the living room are big enough and equipped with all you need for more people. It was great to have 3 bathrooms. We enjoyed to light up the open fireplace every evening and to stay on the terrace on sunny days. For sure, if we come again to Uzes that house would be our first choice. :-)
Dear Mrs Burkert,
Thank you very much for your appreciation, I hope we can welcome you again in our house to Uzès.
