  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

This beautifully restored 18th century townhouse is in the lovely village of Uzès, capital of the province of the Gard, southern France. The house is located immediately outside the original medieval town walls and is a three minute walk away from the Place aux Herbes. It was constructed in the 18th century as a gentlemen's town house on much older foundations. The house was restored in 1982 and again in 2010 and has featured in a number of books and documentaries about the region. It is furnished with a mixture of contemporary English and 18-19th century French furniture. There is a roof terrace at the top of the house which provides lovely views of the town center and surroundings. There is a shaded walled garden at the back of the house. Car parking is available a few minutes walk from the house.

Uzès is on the River Alzon at an elevation of 130 metres. Dating back to Celtic times, the Romans converted this natural fortification and defensive position on a craggy limestone hill into an encampment to defend Nîmes, one of the richest and most important cities in France in Roman times. The source of the water which was carried to Nîmes via the famous Pont du Gard some ten kilometers away is from springs close by and Roman water channels can still be found in the valley next to the river at the foot of the hill on which Uzès is perched. The skyline of this handsome medieval village is dominated by the eleventh century castle which is still occupied by one of the oldest noble families in France, that of the Duc d'Uzès. In the centre of the village the Place aux Herbes is a perfectly preserved 12th century market-place which rejoices in one of the prettiest markets in France every Saturday. The village also boasts a bishop's palace constructed in the 17th century whilst the adjacent cathedral of Saint Theodorit is decorated with the Tour Fenestrelle, one of the most picturesque romanesque towers in the region.

"Excellent accommodation"

I can't say enough good things about this house. On 3 levels, with a roof terrace overlooking the town. It even has a kitchen on the ground floor for catering when you are relaxing in the garde… More
