Location description from owner
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.

- Very Good
Magnificent location , excellent facilities , and a wonderful hostess, making for a fun filled and relaxing time.. Thank you Amanda we will definitely be back .
Just loved having you; please come again.
“Fabulous location and accommodation”
We had a great time staying here. It was a perfect location to explore the area and ride up Mont Ventoux with 445cyclingtours. The pool and the hospitality were fabulous, our room was cool and very comfortable. The facilities were of a high standard. We will recommend to friends and family.
And we enjoyed you all tremendously and look forward to see you back.
“Paradise in South of France”
Absolutely adorable villas set in centre of quaint village with only a Church and restaurant! The tastefully genuine French decor is so inviting and both houses led out to a private pool at the back. Wonderful hosts Amanda and Judy not only provide beautiful accommodation but tour trip tips, excursions, private chef dinners and hired music. Would definitely come back!!!
Many thanks for your kind review. It was great fun having you and your fantastic group of people here. We hope to host you again in the future. Amanda & Judy
“So gorgeous -I'm coming back”
You wouldn't know that behind the rather plain front entrance a gorgeous interior and picture postcard terrace & pool area await you.With a French country kitchen,Large bedrooms with really comfy beds, and views out to either the pool area or front courtyard. -what more could you want? .Shall I have my lunch and glass of Rose under the grape covered pergola or up on the higher terrace under the canopy? Set in a lovely little village that is surrounded by grape vines, yet only a few minutes by car to Uzes or Pont du Guard. This IS the life.And to top it off- the vibrant gorgeous Amanda to greet you and make sure your stay is just what you want.
“A wonderful ambiance”
This was my second time at the Maison de Maitresse and all was as wonderful as the first time. Amanda is a relaxed and welcoming hostess and the village is lovely. The nearby town of Uzès has everything you could want whilst St Maximin is quieter for a bit of a rest after a long day of seeing the local sites! The kids loved the pool and the sunny terraces. It really is central to everything; this time we went to the Bambouseraie (about 40 kilometres) which I can recommend and the Camargue is a little over an hour's drive away as well. I can thoroughly recommend Amanda's for a wonderful South of France experience!
