This historic property is excellently located in the greater Uzès area, Languedoc Roussillon, Occitanie, South of France. Built in the Middle Ages on the foundations of an old fortified castle, the additions through the centuries have left different features including the beautiful rooms with vaulted ceilings, a sumptuous Louis XIII staircase and the Empire lounge.

Standing majestically in the heart of the village, you can admire the beautiful facade, its two entrance towers and the remains of its ancient ramparts. The rooms offer beautiful volumes with large windows, high ceilings, beautiful floors and fireplaces - in short, a feeling of well-being.
