Why should you stay here?
LOCATION, STUNNING, and IMMACULATE – not your usual rental property!
It is a perfect home away from home. These pictures do not do justice!
You cannot find a better location in the center of Aix.
It is situated in the heart of Aix in a prestigious area where nobles once lived – Quartier Mazarin.
It is only 2 minute walk to Cours Mirabeau (main Blvd.) yet Quartier Mazarin (and especially my street) remains very quiet and tranquil so you can leave the busy restaurants, markets and shops and relax in peace.
This charming cozy townhouse was an old stable 200+ years ago. It is now a small two bedroom, two story townhouse with lots of old charm exterior with stylish modern interior.
As you enter from the street there is a little sitting room, in the middle, under the stairs is a W.C. and the far side of the house is the kitchenette (fully equipped) with a dining area.
On the 2nd floor, there are two small bedrooms – one facing the street has a double bed and the other bedroom with a single bed. In between the two bedrooms is a shower with a sink.
All newly rebuilt to a modern stylish taste with quality in mind.
It is a perfect urban get away for a couple or a business person wanting a comfort of a cozy home rather than staying at a hotel!!
Unlike other rental properties, you will find basic necessities such as dishwashing soap, detergent, paper towel, sugar, salt, black pepper, olive oil etc. well stocked. We want you to relax and enjoy your stay rather than having to run to the supermarket as soon as you arrive.
Please note: Due to quite steep stairs (please see picture), it is not suitable for children or anyone with limited mobility.
We vacationed in Aix in 1991 and ended up moving here in 2001, from San Francisco. What we found was the ultimate 'French experience' and change of life - in more than one sense!! We learned French and made some great friends in this international town, which has all the glamour of Paris - without the hassle.
I fell in love with the location and the property so I renovated it to my taste as though I was going to live there. I was called to England so I find myself using the property less and less. With much encouragement from a friend, I have decided to rent out my beloved little jewel.
The property is in the heart of a prestigious area called Quartier Mazarin. It is very rare to find a free standing house in this chic area of Aix. It is only 2 minutes walk from Cours Mirabeau, Rue d'Italie and Musee Granet is right around the corner. The minute you step outside you are in the Center of Aix where you can breath in the culture, architecture and mouth watering food.
