About Uzès

Uzès is a beautiful little town about 25 kilometres north of Nîmes. Originally a Roman settlement, Uzès is today known for its lovely Renaissance architecture, which has sprung up within what were the city walls, and are now a circle of graceful boulevards. Many of the best places to stay in Uzès are in the centre, though there are also some truly lovely rural charmers in the hills surrounding the town.

What Not To Miss

  • The Dukes of Uzès were some of the most important men in all of France, with their title falling just below those of the actual princes, so their fortified Château is a an impressive affair, as is the Capuchin chapel built to house their remains.
  • There’s also a cathedral, though it’s been stripped and rebuilt several times,
  • The Romanesque Tour Fenestrelle or Window Tower which is a National Monument and one of the town’s most famous sights.
  • Uzes made its wealth in fabric, especially serges, silks and linens, but it’s also famous for its liquorice, and there’s a rather fun confectionary museum.
  • Weekly farmer’s markets, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Provence is always a busy region but especially during the peak summer months. So if you want to guarantee yourself a room in one of the best places to stay in Uzes during July and August, get planning and book well ahead.
