From Uzès to the Pont du Gard….one history, one hotel…

Uzès, the premier Duchy of France… 2,000 years of history…

A medieval town with a rich history, Uzès, the premier Duchy of France, is a charming Mediterranean town.
Streets lined with town mansions, welcoming squares where markets and festivals are held.
The famous Place aux Herbes was built arch by arch between the 13th and 16th centuries.
Uzes is full of remarkably well-preserved monuments. Jean Racine stayed here and André Gide enjoyed its relaxed lifestyle. André Malraux, then minister of culture, classed Uzès as a “town of Art and History”.

The Eure valley, whose source supplies the city of Nimes, winds below Uzes in deep gorges to the Pont du Gard.
Beyond the gates of the city lies the Uzès countryside, with the most beautiful villages in the Pays d’Oc, all built around châteaux.

Uzès and its Place aux Herbes…

One of the most beautiful Provençal markets is held every Saturday in the Place aux Herbes.
Sheep and goat’s milk cheeses, olive oils, honey, vegetables, fruit, wines …
The terraces become busier and busier, under the shade of the plane trees.
This is the atmosphere and lifestyle you can enjoy in Uzès!
