La Maison d’Uzès
Scale of 90-100
Delightful nine-room hotel in an elegantly restored set of 17th-century stone houses ideally located in Uzès, 25 miles west of Avignon. A magnificent Renaissance stone staircase centerpieces the interior. Historic charm comes from honey-colored stone walls, huge overhead beams and tomette (terra-cotta tile) floors, and character comes from a refined décor successfully combining contemporary furniture and local antiques. One high-ceilinged, ivory-and-pale-yellow room on the third floor had a sitting area with upholstered armchairs before a handsome old fireplace; the large bath featured an oversize claw-foot tub and a separate shower. Chef Christophe Ducros’ indoor-outdoor one-star restaurant serves outstanding seasonally inspired cuisine; a small spa and hammam occupy the vaulted cellars. Wine tasting and golf nearby.

Warm, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere; excellent restaurant; pleasant spa.
Access to the hotel by car is tricky because of pedestrian areas, and parking is in a local garage.
Good to Know
For a good casual meal and a change from French cuisine, head for Via Curti, an Italian restaurant with a friendly Neapolitan owner and a shaded garden terrace, just a five-minute walk from the hotel.
