About the Owner

We bought Le Vieux Figuier 12 years ago after having fallen in love with Uzes. With 4 children, and a busy lifestyle the laid back pace of life, good fresh food and wines, fresh air and sunshine was the tonic we needed and we have enjoyed every minute in the fascinating region.

Perfect week with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Le Vieux Figuier

The villa has a lovely outlook from the pool which is a suntrap.

The outside eating area by the pool and the table tennis meant we spent most of our time outside.

The walk into Uzes was less than 20 minutes along a straight road and well worth the effort as there are many lovely restaurants, bars and shops to explore.

The villa was very clean and we were well looked after by Irene

This was my first time in Uzes and in fact my first time in France but it has now become one of my favourite holiday destinations.

my family holiday at le vieux Figuier, Uzes

  • 5 of 5

I felt immediately at home in this spacious family villa. Nicely furnished, very clean and with all amenities.

I thoroughly enjoyed all that Uzes had to offer and would recommend the town to anybody who likes elegant French town squares, good restaurants and a fantastic weekly market.

We ate many wonderful meals sitting by the sunny swimming pool and took home lots of very fond memories. We liked it so much we are returning this year.

Very good location, 2 or 3 minutes by car to the very centre of the town.

Good villa and area

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided everything described in the listing. Comfortable,airy,well equipped and tastefully decorated and presented. Whilst we were there the outside temperature rose to 33+ but the bedrooms and sitting room remained cool. Bedrooms were excellent as was the outside space-great for relaxing and cooling off in the pool.

Uzes is a lovely town and the surrounding countryside has plenty to interest visitors to the area.

John,the local rep. was helpful and always available when needed.

We would thoroughly recommend the villa as an ideal place to enjoy the delights of Uzes and the facilities of the villa itself.

Great location just 2 minutes by car from the lively town of Uzes, or a 15 minute walk. Le Vieux Figuier being on the edge of the town has the benefit of lovely open views of the Cevenne mountains to the front of the property and very sunny pool with spacious terraces and covered outside eating area.
