About Christine Brown

We are a bilingual and bicultural couple with 3 children and a little dog called Bibi. Martin is an industrial designer and is British. I am principal in an international school and I was born and bred in Aix en Provence although I have lived abroad for many years. We bought and entirely renovated this house a few years ago and love its peaceful setting and the space and comfort it offers.

Christine Brown purchased this villa in 2009

Why Christine Brown chose Aix-En-Provence

The property is very close to the centre yet in a beautiful area offering peace and quiet. The two acres garden has a bamboo forest, an orchard and great big oak trees. The pool is large (10X5) and next to a very large shaded terrace with lots of sitting and lounging areas available to read or rest and contemplate the lovely view.

What makes this villa unique

You will feel away from it all yet on the doorstep of Aix, the Luberon area and all they have to offer.

Perfect location, perfect house to share with friends or family

  • 5 of 5
We recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by renting this house for a week with friends and couldn't of been happier with our experience. We cooked together, ate outside every night, swam and relaxed. The location was perfect for easy day trps all over Provence.

Great experience with great service

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this property and stayed there with friends from Australia and Southern France. We all loved it, its atmosphere, proximity to Aix and the excellent service from the owner made the overall experience excellent. The nearby small township of Celony is a very short drive or a long walk away, you can buy great food there. The villa itself wraps you in a sense of separation from the normal and quicker rhythms of regular working life.
Favorite aspects: we would wake up, wander to the apple trees and pick fresh apples and eat them. They were delicious. The pool was perfect and provided a social locus when we invited people over for brunch, dinner or after-dinner drinks. All of our guests loved the property and its atmosphere.
I would love to go back and stay at this property. It comfortably holds 4 couples. My sister and brother-in-law also had two kids aged 5 and 3 and they had plenty of room in the downstairs bedroom/bathroom/mini-kitchen area. The kids loved their stay too.
Responsiveness and general service from the owner was great. She is very likeable, very conscientious about providing a great experience, and completely fluent in English.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
My family have just spent a week in this wonderful Villa. I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who just wants a period of time where doing nothing and relaxing is the ultimate aim.

Location décevante

  • 2 of 5
Malgré le très bel environnement extérieur -piscine, terrasse, jardin-, nous avons été déçus par cette location car les prestations ne sont pas à la hauteur : vaisselle sale, calcaire sur robinetterie, literie moyenne, serviettes de bain trop petites,...etc. Par ailleurs, deux des six chambres ne possèdent pas de porte : l'une est une petite mezzanine qui profite pleinement des nuisances de la cuisine, l'autre est un séjour dans un studio annexe et manque donc d'intimité.
Autre point négatif, et non des moindres, la prioritaire a été particulièrement désagréable et de mauvaise foi, à partir du moment où nous avons versé les arrhes.
Tout d'abord, elle a exigé que l'on paye le solde en liquide et a refusé le paiement par chèque.
Ensuite, elle a fait preuve de désinvolture pour régler certains problèmes qui sont apparus dans la maison lors de notre séjour : la chasse d'eau d'un WC était cassée et le plombier qui est intervenu a bricolé une réparation qui n'a pas tenu longtemps (il aurait fallu changer la chasse) ; Nous sommes restés sans gaz d'alimentation de la cuisinière 1 jour et demi, parce que n'y avait pas de bouteille de gaz de remplacement, et avons dû nous débrouiller avec les mini-plaques électriques du studio (l'enfer quand on cuisine pour 12 personnes). Quand nous avons demandé une compensation pour les désagréments subis, nous n'avons rien obtenu à part un argument du genre « Oh mais vous avez quand même séjourné dans une très jolie maison ! ».
Et pour finir, nous avons été accusé d'avoir cassé un banc de jardin, qui était manifestement usé par le temps et sur lequel nous n'avons fait que nous asseoir, et l'alarme de la piscine à laquelle nous n'avons pas touché.
Louer sa maison à des vacanciers nécessite, de la part du propriétaire, organisation rigoureuse et respect du client. Nous n'avons malheureusement eu droit ni à l'un, ni à l'autre.
