Maison Théodorit is an elegant, 18th century townhouse located on a quiet, picturesque street in the historical centre of Uzès, close to the St Théodorit Cathedral with its famous 11th century Fenestrelle Tower. A lovely area with art galleries as neighbours, it is just a short walk along the beautifully restored, cobbled streets to numerous shops, cafes, restaurants and the colourful weekly market in the Place aux Herbes.
The property is 280m² in total over 3 floors with a private 80m² terrace on the second floor. It can either be rented as a whole to accomodate 10 guests or as 2 independent apartments, each with its own street entrance, the larger one (with terrace) suitable for 6 guests (Maison Théodorit) and the smaller ground floor apartment for 4 guests (Petit Théodorit).
The house has been beautifully renovated to expose the original stonework and beamed ceilings whilst providing all modern comforts.
Opposite the house is a wonderful footpath which passes the cathedral and Roman ruins down into the Vallée de l'Eure for a pleasant walk or picnic by the river. There is also a large, open air, municipal swimming pool as well as tennis courts less than 10 minutes walk away.
A great place to relax in one of the loveliest Gallo-Roman towns in southern France renowned as the first Duchy with its fine cathedral and 12th century buildings.
Maison Théodorit, the larger apartment of 180 m², consists of 3 double bedrooms each with top quality en-suite bathroom on the 1st floor. The master bedroom opens onto a small patio. There is also an office/library, laundry room and separate WC on this floor. On the 2nd floor a spacious, bright reception room, with a typical stone open fireplace, leads onto the main terrace, well-equipped with dining and BBQ facilities. The spacious terrace has lovely open views whilst the surrounding buildings provide complete privacy. It is a wonderful place to dine, relax and enjoy the sunshine. The kitchen is fully equipped and conveniently located next to the main reception room.
Petit Théodorit (85m²), the spacious ground floor apartment, has a stunning, stone vaulted, split level, open plan main room that offers a living and dining area and the master bedroom. Next to the bedroom area is a separate, full bathroom. Past the dining area is a fully equipped kitchen and passage way to the twin bedroom.
If rented together, the apartments are connected via an internal staircase.
My wife and I rented this wonderful home in early October, and were joined by both of our grown children and their spouses. This is a truly magnificent and lovingly restored townhouse. The bathroom and kitchen fixtures are completely modern and up to date. It is located on a very quiet and very old, twisty, cobblestone street. The house is in excellent repair and has lovely furnishings. The outdoor patio is a large and wonderful place to have alfresco cocktails or dinner. The small, inner courtyard off the master bedroom is charming. The central living area is very large and completely comfortable, with lots of Michelin and other guidebooks. The "house guide" manual is exceedingly detailed, with everything you need to know about the house and the nearby area. The house is located within the walls of the old city of Uzes, with enchanting, curved streets and a beautiful central plaza with plane trees and an active market on Saturdays and Wednesdays (smaller). All essential services, including a large number of restaurants at a variety of price points, are within walking distance. There are quaint, close-by villages to visit on day trips. Stephanie was exceedingly helpful in locating taxi services for the long distance hauls to the Marseille and Montpelier airports and finding a chef to come to the house and cook a wonderful dinner for our anniversary. She is very prompt in responding to email inquiries. This is a perfect house, in a perfect town. I have had a number of rentals through HomeAway, both in the United States and abroad, and never had one as wonderful as this one.
Maison Theodorit lived up to our expectations. We were one couple and two single ladies. There was plenty of room for us all. An easy close walk to the centre of the village and convenient paid parking 50 metres away...only needed to pay for daylight hours and at a reasonable cost. The property was beautifully appointed and very clean. We spent our last night using the BBQ to make a delicious meal to eat on the terrace. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience Uzes in comfort. Hopefully we will return.
We have been regular visitors to Uzes over the past decade and hired many villas / apartments over the years. Maison Theodorit was quite simply the best. It was perfectly suited for our family of 5 and large enough that we were able to include grandparents in our holiday plans. Both in indoor and outdoor space were elegant yet comfortable. The location is ideal for exploring the historic centre and enjoying the market in Place aux Herbes. We will come again!
Very classy, high quality accommodation close to the buzz and activity in the town centre, and within the historic core. 3 mins walk (within the pedestrianised zone) to the markets, shops restaurants and bars. Every day, every evening there seemed to be something going on. The house was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Marie is a gem - very helpful and totally charming.
No parking at the property, but easy for drop off and pick up. We took road bikes and kept them in the lower courtyard. There is paid parking within a minute or so walk from the property, but there are plenty of on-street parking spaces if you're prepared to walk a few minutes. No garden but a lovely large sunny courtyard/terrace with Oleander, Lavender and Olive and Cypress trees - perfect setting for a leisurely breakfast or for supper. Cooking facilities were excellent (we loved the induction hob).
Excellent cycling countryside. We went out before breakfast before it got too hot and while the roads were clear. Good kayaking down the Gardon (we managed to cycle over the Pont du Gard one day and kayak under it the next). Other trips worth considering if you can tear yourself away from Uzès: Nîmes, Arles, Avignon, Les Baux - all very accessible by car. Also the amazing caves at Aven d'Orgnac, La Roque sur Cèze, and the Cascades du Sautadet, brilliant views from the Guidon du Bouquet, Lussan and the nearby concluses.
We had a memorable stay and would recommend this property and this town to anyone. Expensive, but you get what you pay for.....
My family spent a week at this beautiful house in enchanting Uzes in June 2016. Everything about the experience exceeded our very high expectations. The house is open, airy, sunny and spotlessly clean. It reflects the medieval charm of Uzes while offering up-to-date amenities. It is located on a quiet, picturesque street in the heart of Uzes and is an easy walking distance to the many fine restaurants, shops and tourist attractions the city has to offer. The shopkeepers and restaurant staff were incredibly friendly and spoke very good English. Uzes is a perfect location from which to take day trips to the surrounding hill towns or to visit such famous tourist attractions as the ancient Roman aqueduct, Pont du Gard, where you can swim, picnic, ride bikes, etc. This is a great house and location for the entire family. We definitely intend to rent this same house in the future and would highly recommend it to others.
My husband and I loved this vacation home. The home is even more lovely than the photos. The owner is gracious and very easy to work with. The property manager greets you upon arrival and shows you the features of this home. This property is spacious, clean, well maintained and beautifully and tastefully decorated. The bedding and linens are luxurious and top quality. The village of Uzes is delightful and very clean. The town is well equipped for tourists yet retains its authentic small French town local character. There are plenty of really good places to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you like to cook you will find everything you need. Uzes is a great location to explore the surrounding areas in Provence or north of Uzes by bike or car.
Enjoy the weekly colourful Provençal market and numerous cultural and artistic festivities and events which take place throughout the year in the town centre. Explore the beautiful picturesque towns and villages surrounding Uzes. Try out canoeing and hiking around the Pont du Gard, wine tasting in the Rhone, rafting the Ardèche, Mediterranean beaches, hiking or cycling, horse riding in the Camargue, and sightseeing the ancient monuments in Avignon, Arles, Nimes and Orange.
