The Maison d’Ulysse

The Maison d’Ulysse is located in Baron, a small village in the south of France.
With its stone walls and crude ceiling beams, the hotel possesses an irresistible rustic charm while offering its visitors every imaginable comfort.
The Maison d’Ulysse:
“Your stay in the South of France, just a stone’s throw from Uzès and Pont du Gard… Guy and Gauthier welcome you to the Maison d’Ulysse, located between Avignon and Nîmes, at the crossroads between Provence, Languedoc and the Cévennes.
This prestige guest house is a real haven of peace, immersing you in a natural, restful setting. A perfect spot for recharging your batteries, in the middle of the garrigue scrubland, between the sea and the region’s numerous tourist attractions. The ideal place for spending romantic weekends and holidays with friends and family.
The Maison d’Ulysse is an old 17th century fortified farmhouse and bears the name of one of its former owners, the archaeologist and poet Ulysse Dumas. Dumas (1872-1909) is a major figure in local history. He made important archaeological discoveries about the prehistoric settlement of the region.
Since that time, the farmhouse and its garden have retained a great deal of their poetry, as can be seen from the mulberry trees, ancient oaks and fig trees which border the property. Today, the house – which is listed by the “Fondation du Patrimoine” heritage foundation, with a label for its historical value – is one of France’s finest high-class guest houses.
Inside, you will be immersed in the magic of the house, which has been restored with due respect for its authenticity.
Settle down in the comfort of your luxury guest house room and rest in the coolness of its natural limewashed walls.
You will be charmed by the contemporary decoration, combining modernity of lines and sobriety of materials, from the Baron Perché room to the Chant du Mûrier suite.
Our dining table is always generously supplied, where you can savour the table d’hôte dishes prepared by Gauthier, the gourmet of the house. In the morning, his breakfasts are a real pleasure, as delicious and innovative as those prepared in luxury hotels.
Round-off your well-being stay with a swim in the magnificent swimming pool, before relaxing in the spa area and Turkish bath. Then you can take a stroll in the Mediterranean dry gardens, where luxuriant perennials, shrubs and climbing plants grow side by side. Walking in the gardens offers peace, quiet and relaxation during your holidays in the South of France.”
