CHARMING, COSY AND COMFORTABLE IN AIX !

  • 5 of 5
This charming apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. Located on the top floor of a 17th century building in the very heart of old Aix, the loft has been entirely renovated to a modern minimalist style with a new kitchen and bathroom and the latest appliances. We enjoyed breakfast and afternoon apéritif on the private rooftop terrace which offers a spectacular view across the rooftops of Aix all the way to Mte Ste Victoire in the distance. Everything in Aix is within easy walking distance. The colorful outdoor markets are steps away and wonderful. The owners were there upon arrival to welcome us and help us settle in. Our stay in this charming, cosy and comfortable apartment was delightful and we will surely return !

LADIES ' STAY IN AIX EN PROVENCE!!

LADIES ' STAY IN AIX EN PROVENCE!!

What a lovely stay we had! The apartment was a wonderful choice for our girls' trip in the capital of Provence!!It is as lovely as it looks in the pictures. We felt like we were living in luxury. The space is so beautiful, well laid out, very clean, sunny, impeccably decorated with comfortable furniture. The weather was exceptionally warm for early march so we enjoyed drinking champagne on the terrace.... admiring the stunning view over the old town. The location was ideal, only a couple of blocks from the farmers markets restaurants, museums and shops.
We felt very welcome by our hosts who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you for great tips on the wine county and hiking trails! After a long drive from spain, we arrived quite late at the apt ..too late to do any shopping, but Kristine had a delicious snack with a chilled bottle of rosé for us & made sure we had everything we needed for breakfast.
We absolutely recommend this flat for anyone wanting to visit Provence in style and we hope to be back! Thanks for everything. This was really the Best part of our long trip across portugal, spain and France!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ladies for your appreciation of the apt. We hope you come back soon. We really enjoyed meeting all of you. Just so you know, our chauffeur LOVED driving you around the Wine country...he enjoyed the laughs in the back of the car and your enthusiasm for our region.
We hope to see you again soon if not in provence on our next trip to California?
thank you again and a bientôt!

WE FOUND A GEM IN AIX EN PROVENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
We feel fortunate to have found this spacious apartment in Aix en provence .This was our second trip to Aix and will hopefully return next fall.
This time we were with our daughter and our grand daughter. We have rented many Vrbo properties and this loft is at the top of our list!
The apartment is just beautiful, comfortable, impeccably clean, bright, exactly as described and photographed on the website and ideally located.
Being so centrally located makes it easy to explore, shop at the daily farmers market and get to know the Historical centre of Aix at a more leisurely pace.

If you love to cook,the kitchen is great, practical and fully equipped(for a chef!!).
The owners, Kristine and Thierry, could not have been more helpful and provided us with great suggestions of restaurants, wineries and villages we had not been to on our previous journey last year. They have done a marvelous job of decorating the apartment, adding many little details that make it truly special and comfortable.
The greatest treat in this loft is having a glass of wine on the private terrace, overlooking the gorgeous view of the roof tops of old town. The light is breathtaking in provence!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you both for sharing this lovely place with us.

OUTSTANDING APT AND STAY!! MERCI!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have traveled to Aix before but this last trip was by far the most memorable. We have found the perfect spot to experience Provence with the comforts of modern living. The apartment is not your typical vacation rental...!! It is a HOME away from home!

The apt is by far in the best location and truly in the heart of town, a few steps away from farmers markets, cafés and restaurants.Our stay was particularly pleasant due to the kindness and consideration of our most gracious hosts. Kristine and Thierry made the whole rental process very easy for us from booking the apt to checking out. The place was spotless, meticulous and beds very comfortable. Air conditonning and all appliances worked perfectly.
We loved the fully equipped kitchen with its large counter space. The private parking a block from the apt was very easy and accessible. We also felt privileged to experience Aix from this spot with a beautiful view onto all of Aix from the rooftop terrace.
Aix en provence is a Charming and very special town with its narrow streets, restaurants and cafés . Our favourite thing to do was to sit at cafes every morning for an early petit dejeuner and enjoy the set up of the daily farmer ‘s market . Without hesitation we would recommend this Unic special apt to anyone interested in visiting this beautiful part of France..again thank you for a great stay!

Pros - I will praise the work done to this renovated apartment - once inside, its beautiful. Visiting local markets was amazing - so much delicious food. Day trips to nearby villages was awe inspiring - Eze was a highlight. Cons -It's one thing to renovate an apartment - another to let it out and make it practical for paying guests. Yes, stairs were mentioned but there are 68 unevenly spaced stairs going up in a spiral. We were on tail end of trip from Australia (two couples) with heavy suitcases. Our husbands are in their mid 60s and we girls are 50+ - all reasonably fit but this nearly killed us! We were already stressed because we had driven to the apartment(thank God for sat nav) only to be told to turn left into street. We could not turn left because of raised bollard in middle of road. We had angry, honking people backed up behind us. One finally got out of car & used his swipe card to bring bollard down - we proceeded but there was nowhere to park. We pulled up close to building & rang door bell - no answer. We rang Kristine on mobile - no answer. It took 30 mins before Thierry arrived and let us in. We walked up the 68 stairs twice with suitcases in hand! While being shown the apartment I asked where laundry was - fourteen stairs down. After being shown the apartment Thierry took us up a further 20 odd stairs to the roof top - yes, it was beautiful, once up there! Apart from stairs galore we were disappointed with bathroom. The picture shows a bath with floor tap. What we didn't realise, was, you needed to kneel in bath & hold the shower head otherwise water went everywhere. After a day sightseeing a long shower is always welcome - we couldn't do that. Washing your hair while holding shower head in other hand was a challenge. Thierry, when you came to collect rent I was surprised to see you at apartment door - I was coming down from roof on the opposite set of stairs. Five minutes before, I had done that in my bra & panties!! That would have been embarrassing. I think as we were paying guests you should have rung the door bell from downstairs & we would have let you in. After 5 funfilled days we dutyfully stripped the beds & placed sheets in bathroom with all the towels. We did water the plants, as requested. Stairs can't be avoided but aesthetics need to be put aside & proper shower installed. Hope this is taken as "constructive feedback"

Owner's Response: We appreciate your constructive review and regret that some of your expectations were not met as you had hoped.
Aix-en-Provence is an ancient city with no regular traffic accessibility. Roads are closed to traffic in certain areas and certain times of the day. It is common for drivers to be patient with others loading and unloading and holding up traffic. In some instances, impatient drivers do protest. But this is a city where we work together and adapt to challenges.
It is important to keep in mind that this listing is a private apartment and not a boutique hotel with the perks of bellmen and staff to accommodate the needs for luggage assistance. As an 16th century building with original 17th century staircase, the luxury of an elevator is a compromise against the ancient qualities and lifestyles lived in times past. The privilege of a roof-top terrace overlooking all of Aix-en-Provence is a feature that requires a compromise in the form of walk-up.
We regret that you were stressed by this feature and we realize also that your trip from Nice to Aix en Provence was very stressful and that you had a flat tire on the way. Unfortunately your less than perfect experience and traffic challenges on the Continent contributed to your dissatisfaction at the time of your arrival.

Many of our tenants this year were over 65/70 years old and never complained once about having to go up to the third floor. The imperfections of Provence contribute to its charm. Less than perfect surfaces, old staircases and narrow roads with limited parking make for the old world charm that meets modern sophistication. SOMETHING OTHER TOURISTS SAVOR AND FIND CHARMING.

We renovated our loft with modern luxuries. In France a hand-held shower is common and large modern showers are not always possible within the restrictions of space and layout.
We respect the fact that the comforts of modern life in Australia met challenge during your stay in Provence. We are, however confident that your impressions of the region and our lifestyle made for a memorable trip regardless.
