4 bedroom Luxury holiday house in Uzes with pool
Historic Kids & Pet friendly Luxury Holiday house in Uzes for 8 people with private swimming pool
Maison Sept is a spacious early 17th century French luxury holiday house in Uzes located in the historic centre. It is approximately 100 steps to the Place aux Herbes, the lively central hub of Uzès – a beautiful large square filled with plane trees, a fountain and wonderful shops and outdoor cafes. It is also the location of the twice weekly morning market where you can stock up on local produce, cheeses, meats, flowers, spices, and regional crafts.
Maison Sept is located on a narrow, cobbled medieval street, lined with town houses on both sides. There is an art gallery and an antiques shop right across the street, and just a few doors down, a bakery – essential for those morning croissants. Two doors down on our side is a lovely inn with a wonderful restaurant.
At the back of the house, the living room opens onto a private walled terrace. It is cool and shady in the heat of summer, a private oasis where you can have breakfast or a lovely al fresco dinner.
An ancient stone spiral staircase winds its way through the 4 stories of the house. There are four bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with a double bed, and one with a pair of twin beds. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are furnished with French antiques and antique tribal carpets. Two of the bedrooms have balconies that open onto the courtyard below. There are two full bathrooms and a powder room.
On the third floor you can unwind in the family room, equipped with internet TV and DVD player. Off this room is a mezzanine that serves as an office and is set up with wireless Internet. You have use of the full laundry room, with both a washer and dryer. You are welcome to use the unlimited long distance telephone service to many countries worldwide.
The kitchen is well stocked and modern, and contains all the requirements, whether you like to just make coffee, or cook elaborate gourmet meals. There is a gas cook top, electric wall oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender and food processor, nice stainless steel All Clad cookware and several types of coffee makers (we know what’s important!).

There are also many small weekly brocantes in the area. Our favourites are L’Isle sur la Sorgue on Sundays, Villeneuve les Avignon on Saturdays and Aix-en-Provence on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information, just write us a note. We are always happy to talk about antiques! ”
