The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc Roussillon region of Southern France curves in a great arc formation around the Mediterranean, from historical Cevennes down as far as the Pyrenees and the Spanish border. The region offers magnificent scenery, clean, uncrowded beaches with warm seas, excellent skiing & other recreational facilities, a richly diverse culture and cuisine and some excellent wines - the region borders on the southern Cotes de Rhone and a climate which boasts the highest annual sunshine average in France.
The Languedoc possesses a distinct character all of its own, quite unlike anywhere else in France. For instance, it has its own language, the langue d'oc, and for centuries enjoyed considerable independance from Paris under the rule of the local Counts.
Uzes is a spectacular Duchy with a reining Duke and Duchess. Exciting decorator shops, Art galleries, Music festival. Dozens of bars and restaurants... A size that allows to get intimate with the quaint medieval streets packed full of history. A fabulous Saturday Market that takes over the whole town, with not only the freshest produce available, but everything else Provence is famous for. Also nearby is Avignon famous for the "Palais des Papes," its summer festival, its museums and of course its "Bridge."
In Nimes an almost intact Roman arena holds special events from Corridas (bull fights) to musical festivals.
The Pont Du Gard is a 2,000 year old, Roman-built aqueduct of grandiose proportions. One of France's most visited monuments. It can be visited by kayak after a gentle paddle down the Gardon river.
Within one hours drive :
• Arles, Orange, the Camargue.
• Les Baux de Provence.
• Marseille, Aix-en-Provence.
• The Mediterranean beaches.
• The rivers Rhône, Ardèche, and the Cèze.
• Hundreds of beautiful Provençal villages.

“Ambience of Southern France captured”
We stayed in La Petite Maison for two weeks with friends. The ambiance of southern France was captured in all aspects of location, venue, foods, wine and environs to visit. The markets were great and Judy and Amanda's hospitality warm and friendly. We had some great shared meals including recipes with Judy and Amanda. An experience to savour and reminisce over. When we next have a long lunch.
Judy and I always enjoy to share a meal and wine with great guests, time permitting, particularly such enthusiastic foodies as yourselves. Your review is appreciated and we hope to see you back.
“Top location, house, pool and hostesses!”
La Petite Maison is a quirky house on a number of levels and was incredibly well-suited for our extended and 'blended' family. Plenty of space for everyone, and everything you could need in terms of facilities. Outside, there's a lovely little private patio overlooking the pool area, and then down the steps you enter the shared garden with loads of seating - a huge table under the vine-laden pergola is perfect for those long slow lunches or just for unwinding and chilling after the day's activities. Then there's the pool which is saline-based, not chlorine, so no irritated eyes or skin. The nearest wine cooperative (with drinkable rosé at about 7 euros for FIVE litres!) is about half a mile away, but there are better wines to be had, still at incredible prices, all over the place. The nearby town of Uzes has plenty going on, and through the summer there's rarely an evening when there isn't something happening either in Uzes itself or in one of the surrounding villages. Whilst we were there we saw live music in Uzes, a festival in a nearby village with the running of the bulls and more live music, and a night market in St Maximin itself - starting literally just outside the door of the accommodation, where local producers were selling their produce - and giving out samples too of course... Plenty of outdoor activities locally - our favourite is the kayaking on the Gardon, taking in the 2000-year-old aqueduct at Pont du Gard - a relaxing 8km stretch of canoeing where you can stop and swim or have your packed lunch at any of hundreds of natural little beaches on the way. You're probably trying to decide between a few properties that you're looking at - make sure you book this one if you possibly can - it really is fantastic and is thoroughly recommended. Thank you to Amanda and Judy, the charming hostesses who were always ready with suggestions and help during our stay - we will be back!
Always a pleasure hosting your wonderful blended family Rik and Jackie. We look forward to your return. Amanda & Judy
“Our stay at La Petite Maison epitomised the unlimited joy of life!”
Can't say enough about our wonderful week in St Maximin. The house was very comfortable and full of interesting paintings,objets d'art and furnishings. Then there's outdoors - plenty of leafy areas to spread out and relax in and a neat pool. We were sorry not to meet Amanda but Judy looked after us like we were family. We had a perfect week in a little piece of paradise.
“Warm & original”
The "tips" for writing a review suggest describing "the service" but staying in Petite Maison felt more like staying with friends or family than a hotel-style service! The atmosphere was essentially just help yourself and/ or ask if you are unsure. The property was charming & the outdoor living & entertaining area were lovely spaces to socialise with the other guests. While St Maximin itself is a very small town, the close 5- 10 minute drive to Uzes was very handy & lots of other attractions of Provence are within 2 hours drive away. The amenities at Petite Maison were adequate considering the historic age of the building. For me the best was the out door pool & terrace areas for getting together with the group or just relaxing & reading. I least liked the little bitey insects and would have started with serious application of insect repellant on the first day if I realised!
