눉We booked Le Mas des Oliviers as we wanted accommodation for 3 people, and the other options in Uzes in high summer were very limited. We also wanted somewhere close to the centre, so we could get to restaurants without needing to drive. The website also showed a pool and sun terrace, which should the icing on the cake.
The location is good, as is the underground private car park. The walk to the central square is no more than 10 minutes. Our first impression wasn't too good as the reception was deserted. We were on the point of leaving and getting a room at the Best Western which we found had rooms, when the owner came in (it was 8pm by now, we having arrived at 6:45pm). The problem seemed to be communication in that a text message should have reached us, but didn't until some time later probably due to network delay. This would tell us the code to unlock a box outside the main entrance, and within this was an envelope with our key and access code. If you book the accommodation, I would suggest you call the owner before you arrive to sort this out, as when we arrived we called the 2 numbers on the wall around 20 times each without anyone picking up. One message we left was responded to, around 9pm the same night.
The apartment was clean, but furnished with very tired and cheap fittings. Pretty dismal really. There were no light shades - just dim under-powered bare bulbs at ceiling level, the air con hardly worked, and the shower fitting was broken (shower so small that an average adult couldn't really fit - so we guessed how the fittings would have been broken. The beds were extremely basic, and the mattress and pillow linings terribly stained.
The terrace /balcony is overlooked and very adjacent to others, so we were uncomfortable ever eating there - even breakfast.
The pool is indoors, popular with young children, and the sun terrace was horrible.
눇The positives were that it had a bath and there was lots of hot water (see below), and it was clean. There is also free wifi. There are also plenty of plates and glasses etc., although due to the lack of kitchen gear, we never ate there.
