Little B&B provençal old cottage with only 6 boutique rooms (each one comes in a slightly different style) in a little hamlet just 10 minutes away from Uzès.
This hamlet - Saint-Mediers - is in fact so secluded that you will only encounter the picturesque French countryside around you with its smooth hills and vineyards, a bee or occasionally someone else who is staying at the Clos.
That's it - it IS very far out, and you WILL need a car. There is nowhere else to go in the hamlet, no restaurant or bar. You will have to drive, or stock up on French snacks from the butchers and bakers next village (one downpoint: you can fit some stuff in the mini bar fridge, but it's not huge. Eventually it would be great to have a kitchenette unit/bigger fridge, because of self-catering needs). But this on the other hand means COMPLETE peace and quiet!
All of the rooms we checked out (we've already stayed in half of them) look absolutely stunning and are flawless. All rooms have amazing spa-esque bathrooms with Roman-style stone bathtubs (you'll feel like a King/Queen) and separate rain showers. Most of the rooms even have a private terrace with another shower. WiFi is free and usually fast. The beds are huge (bigger than kingsize). It can hardly get cosier than inside this historic building with its stone walls and floors, little outlook windows and carefully fitted interior.
This is a B&B and not a hotel, so don't expect 24h service here. However, they serve delicious home-made continental breakfast in the morning, and you will meet Pierre, who runs this lovely place. He can help out with recommendations or bookings.
The infinity pool is quite fresh but stunning. You will have a view over the whole valley from it (the Clos is located on the foot of a hill). Make sure you come and have a look at it at night, too... The attention to detail in this B&B is extraordinary.
This is a very private kind of thing - you come here to enjoy the peace-&-quiet and recharge.
Tip: Drive to other towns (Montaren, 7min / Uzès, 10min) for an early dinner, come back and enjoy the views and the sunset with a glass of wine. Make sure you make a good use out of your room and terrace, too!
We cannot wait to be back here!
