Situated in the historical centre of Uzès, this is a stylish first floor appartment, with an impressive view out onto the central Place aux Herbes. It offers a typical provençal scene of the square on one side (with its fountain and plane trees) and the calm of its two south-facing terraces on the other with views over the Eglise St Etienne (St Stephen's church), ideal for al fresco dining, sunbathing and relaxation. The Renaissance hotel particulier in which the appartment is housed lends the property a particular charm with its stone staircase, wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors.

The 90 sqm property is spacious and stylishly minimalist, mixing retro and modern design to contrast with the wooden beams and tiled floors. It features 2 double bedrooms - one with a modern twist on the four poster bed - both with views out onto the apartment's outside spaces; a large 45 sqm living room with ultra-modern kitchen and polished concrete bar and stools for dining, with views over the Place aux Herbes; and a fully equipped bathroom. This provençal pied-à-terre offers all modern comforts in an idyllic setting: flat screen TV, DVD player, music system and wifi internet connection. Its modern central heating means the apartment can be rented at any time of year for a comfortable stay. There is residential vehicle access to the Place aux Herbes to drop off your luggage at the door and free parking available within easy walking distance of the property.

Uzès, rated as one of France's most beautiful towns (and just voted a must-see destination of 2014 by the UK's Guardian newspaper), has a typical provençal feel and a lively heart. The Place aux Herbes plays host to two weekly markets - on Wednesdays and Saturdays - all year round, which you can observe from your windows. It also has a vibrant cultural scene (annual modern dance and classical music festivals, a feria, exhibitions) with art galleries, a theatre, a historic cinema (showing films in English), antique shops, dozens of restaurants and bars and interesting local shops. Explore the maze of its streets and alleyways and discover a town rich in history, with beautifully preserved traditional architecture, a cathedral, a castle, and much more.

Nestled atop a hill, Uzès is surrounded by garrigue - the ubiquitous provençal vegetation. A 5-minute walk from the apartment leads you to the delightfully shaded Vallée de l'Eure, at the foot of the cathedral, starting point for many walks in the surrounding area. Or just enjoy the slow-flowing river and numerous ruins peppered around the park. Uzès is ideally located to visit Avignon, Nîmes, Montpellier, Aigues-Mortes, the Camargue, the Cévennes, the Ardèche gorges, les Baux de Provence, Arles and the beaches of the Mediterrannean. That's when you've finished discovering the many lovely villages and natural wonders close at hand around Uzès.

Explore the maze of its streets and alleyways and discover a town rich in history, with a beautifully preserved typical architecture, a cathedral, a castle, and much more.

Nestled atop a hill, Uzès is surrounded by 'garrigue' - the ubiquitous provençal vegetation. A 5-minute walk from the appartment leads you to the delightfully shaded Vallée de l'Eure, at the foot of the cathedral, starting point for many walks in the surrounding area. Or just enjoy the slow-flowing river and numerous ruins peppered around the park.

Uzès is ideally located to visit the giant Roman aquaduct le Pont du Gard (20min), Avignon, Nîmes, Montpellier, Aigues-Mortes, the Camargue, the Cévennes, the Ardèche gorges, les Baux de Provence, Arles and the beaches of the Mediterrannean.

Mind you, that's only when you've finished discovering the many lovely villages and natural wonders close at hand around Uzès!

Denis' favourite is Collias, where he loves jumping off rocks into the lovelingly refreshing river (with 'cascade du Sautadet' a close second). Alex's is les Concluses, a dramatic natural area near the charming town of Lussan.
