Monica, who met us on arrival and on departure was a delight - punctual, helpful, friendly. The apartment was better than advertised and in a perfect place to explore Uzes - all within a very short distance. The car park was excellent and very close to the apartment. We would have no hesitation in recommending this listing to anyone.

Michel was always very responsive to our emails and Monica was waiting for us when we arrived and was most helpful. The apartment is brilliantly situated, being in a quiet but very central part of Uzes within less than 100 metres from Place aux Herbes. No need to cross the road that encircles Uzes as the apartment is within it. The apartment itself is quiet, with atmosphere and charm and has everything you need for a long stay (we were there two weeks). There are 58 steps to get there but they are a greater justification for sampling the gastronomic delights of Uzes, especially the market in Place aux Herbes on Saturday and Wednesday.
Without exception the Uzes residents were charming and helpful in the face of our mangling of the French language, and we can also recommend the walks in the area.
We would certainly return, both to Uzes and to Michel's apartment.
We had a wonderful week staying in Michel’s apartment – quite honestly, it was perfect – amazing location with fabulous views from every window, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean! We have never used airbnb before – but shall certainly do so again! Communication couldn’t have been easier – I heard back from Michel promptly – and he was very accommodating of our arrival on a Sunday.
Our arrival time was delayed as there had been an accident and road works on the A9 so the 2 hour journey from the airport was four and half hours – but Monica was there to welcome us. She was so helpful – gave us great ideas for places to eat, best bakery etc! and left us her contact details if we needed further assistance - which we didn't.
It was great to have garage parking which was in a secure multiple underground car park. Our hire car was a Citroen C3 and we didn’t have any problems with access. As I say, it was perfect stay!
Our host Monica was excellent. She met us at the apartment to go over everything, she gave us an overview of the town, where to shop and some recommendations of restaurants to eat at.
The apartment was great. Well equipped, comfortable, charming, quiet and well located within the town. Parking underground was a plus. I would highly recommend this apartment to a couple or a family.
This was a wonderful flat for our family of four. Spacious, beautifully furnished, extremely well equipped, light and airy, with great views as well as being perfectly located just inside the old town. Just don't take a huge bag as I did because you will have to lug it up the three storeys! Unfortunately the wonderful Monica was away when we arrived but we got the pleasure of her warm efficiency at the end of our stay.
Our host had a wonderful person named Monica who greeted us and made us feel very welcome. She was always available to answer any of our questions by phone or email.
The apartment was charming and had everything that we needed. The central plaza was just steps away with amazing outdoor dining and many restaurants. The town of Uzes is beautiful and historic and we could walk everywhere.
The walk up 58 circular steps was a great workout for all of us, but we didn't mind because of the great views from our apartment. There are large windows in every room with cool breezes even during hot days so it does not matter that there is no airconditioning.
The apartment comes with a parking space in an underground parking structure a short walk away. I would recommend renting a small car because the space in the parking garage is small, but this is very typical in Europe. It was very important for us to have the ease of our own parking space and not have to search for a spot in town.
Wednesday morning is the marketplace in the plaza. We enjoyed sampling the food of the region. They sell fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, cheeses and herbs and spices and so much more. It is an amazing display of food from the region.
