Only a short journey from the Roman town of Nimes sits L'Albiousse in Uzes, a seriously decadent townhouse that has an ethnic-urban style. Preserving a classic way of French living, this historical charm is the perfect boutique hideaway.
Behind its gorgeously old-fashioned wooden doors, this 16th-century house was named after one of its former owners and welcomes all travellers with a pretty cobbled courtyard, just as it's done for hundreds of years.
Uzes, a pretty market town is a secret hideaway, well hidden from the tourist traps in the larger cities. Don’t miss the market on a Wednesday or Saturday for fresh bread, sausages and of course doorstops of cheese.
More like a familiar country house than a hotel, L'Albiousse has a noble charm that's been given a quirky edge by the private Welsh owners. Indulge in the elegant dining room, with handmade chandeliers made from old ventilation pipes.
While you're not terribly near a beach, there's plenty to explore. Try the town's amazing medieval garden which has a herbarium for natural remedies.
