  • Overview
    Introduction

    L'Albiousse is a small luxury B&B in the charming market town of Uzes in the south of France. Sophisticated 18th-century style and contemporary design are in perfect balance, with Louis XIII doors and impressive stonework alongside chic contemporary chandeliers made from recycled ventilation piping.

    Life at L'Albiousse centres on the cool courtyard where guests can enjoy the delicious breakfast, and with only 5 rooms, you are guaranteed privacy if you want a quiet afternoon reading in the shade and in the evenings, snuggle up in the living room with its vaulted ceilings and large stone fireplace.

    Activities

    With the delightful shops, markets, cafes and restaurants of the picturesque town of Uzes is right on your doorstep, it's easy to while away an afternoon enjoying the finer things in life in the pretty streets and there is a thriving art & crafts industry for those who want to find some souvenirs, be it pottery or painted furniture.

    To gain an insight into the history of the town, take a guided tour around the Duchy of Uzes, one of the best preserved feudal complexes found in the centre of a town where you will find architecture from the Renaissance and Gothic periods as well as the Middle Ages. The town is the starting point of an impressive Roman aqueduct used to supply the city of Nimes which is 25 km away, as it sits at the source of the Eure river.

    Be sure to try the fine local produce, with delicious truffles, olives and local wines among the treats you will find. The surrounding region has some great vineyards and wine tastings can be arranged, or have your hosts pack you up a picnic and head off on a country walk, or perhaps an afternoon bathing in the Gardon river. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the 9-hole golf course in Uzes, or for the adventurous, why not try kayaking or canoeing or view the region from a hot air balloon. In the evening, return to L'Albiousse for a game of cards in the living room or pre-dinner drinks out in the courtyard.

    A luxury spa has opened just across the street that is open to guests of L'Albiousse.

    Dining

    L'Albiousse's breakfast is a great way to start the day with a generous menu including fresh juices, fruit salads, cakes and patisserie, eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes and other tasty dishes.

    A picnic can be packed up for you for your days out, using fresh locally-sourced produce, and dinners can be arranged with advanced notice, while there are some great restaurants in town that come highly recommended.
