L'Albiousse

Uzès, Provence, France

Magnificent B&B in a grand old house, bang in the middle of medieval Uzès

Uzès sparkles like no other, a magical medieval town with a market that snakes through mazy lanes before flowing into ancient Place aux Herbes. Blissful local countryside laps at the town’s walls and you can drop down from the cathedral and follow a path all the way out to Pont du Gard, a 1st-century Roman aqueduct that clearly qualifies as one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture on this planet. You can even grab a kayak upstream, then float down and pass under it… pure heaven!

As for this remarkable B&B, it stands on one of the oldest streets in town, its modest exterior giving way to stunning interiors. There’s a lush courtyard, a vaulted sitting room where a fire burns in winter, then a panelled dining room for delicious food - owners Gwilym and Alexis had a restaurant in Paris before moving south. As for the 5 bedrooms, well, we’ve saved the best for last. Expect gilded walls, chequerboard floors, 16th-century wooden ceilings, ornate marble fireplaces. Enormous beds sport gorgeous linen, there’s fabulous art, cool books and minibars ‘on the house’. As for the suites, they’re simply faultless with daybeds on terraces, Apple Macs stuffed with music and films, and bathrooms that are predictably divine. Excellent restaurants wait in the lanes. Unmissable.
