La Maison d’Ulysse is a haven of peace whose charm comes as much from the 16th century building as from the magnificent gardens surrounding it.
From the first visit of what is today our charming hotel, Gauthier took a passion for outdoor spaces and then thought about the landscaping of these gardens.
Your stay at our boutique hotel in Provence is a chance to discover the rich historical heritage of the Gard and Provence region. From the City of the Popes in Avignon to the ancient Roman theatres in Orange, from the Pont du Gard bridge to medieval villages such as Vézénobres or Uzès, from arts and crafts in Saint-Quentin-la-Poterie or Lussan to the seaside resort of Le Grau du Roi-Port Camargue, step into the memory of Provence and Gard by visiting these unmissable places.
Provence invites you on an authentic culinary journey centred around a sun-kissed, flavourful cuisine that is simultaneously mindful of tradition and open to the world. Wander through the Provençal markets, now a major regional symbol of Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur. Savour sun-drenched fruits and vegetables, meet olive farmers, visit truffle fields and enjoy regional products with a protected designation of origin (AOP), such as Nîmes olive oil and Camargue rice.
Oenotourism contributes to our region’s reputation as the global leader in rosé wines. The Provençal wine region, located between the Mediterranean and the Alps, is the oldest in France and boasts great aromatic diversity.
Close to our boutique guest house, discover the Domaine de Cressance, with its Gard country wines and organic wines made by our friend and passionate expert, Claude. Further out, meet the winemakers of Duché d’Uzès and sample their Grenaches, Syrahs and Carignans.
La Provence possesses an extraordinary variety of sites that are terrific for outdoor activities. So why not go for a hike, a bicycle ride or a canoe trip? Any physical activity is a great way to get some exercise, from the most relaxing to the most extreme sports.
Fly over our boutique hotel in a hot air balloon to capture an unforgettable memory of our stay with a bird’s eye view! Paraglide down from the summit of Mont Bouquet, hurtle down the waters of the Gardon Gorge, play a round of golf or learn to shoot a bow and arrow.
