LA BOHEME IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE

Aix-En-Provence Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Alluring apartment in the heart of historic Aix in Provence

Attractive 2 bedrooms apartment on a very quiet street in a very quiet building. You are in the center of everything - shops and restaurants all around you but it

is calm and you can sleep. You close the door and because of the mezzanines and the green of the garden, you have the feeling you are in a house.

Just 30 minutes from Cassis and Marseille, 1 hour from St. Tropez and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery the lovely La Boheme in Aix is your perfect location to conveniently explore this part of France!

You will be greeted at the shuttle from plane or train by Guillaume, my agent. He will take you to the apartment,

familiarize you with the apartment, answer all your questions and tell you about events and interesting activities in the area.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • alternative lifestyle
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Danielle Mollet

I came to the US with my husband for 2 years ... forty years ago! We came with 2 suitcases!

In 2005, I decided it was time to have my own residence in France. Of course, I am not able to reside here half as much as I would like. My family is from Lyon, it is not too far. But here it is all the charm of Le Midi.

Danielle Mollet purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Danielle Mollet chose Aix-En-Provence

I fell in love. This is my home in France. I live in the States and I need to recharge regularly. It is my treasure!

What makes this apartment unique

It is spacious and the ceilings are so high! Here everything is pleasing. You can walk everywhere. I used to live in Boston, a very pretty city, I now live in Reno/Tahoe, NV, very

beautiful landscapes, but really Aix is another world for its charm, history, music and joy of living! and the Mediterranean a hop away!

We loved the apartment

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 2 girlfriends spent a week in this spacious and comfortable apartment. It is in a great location and at the same time very quiet. The windows open onto a lovely courtyard and the honeysuckle was in full bloom, so the air was delightfully fragrant. There is plenty to do and see within walking distance. If you do rent a car to explore more of the Provence region, as we did, there is a large parking garage right around the corner. Guillaume was at the apartment when we arrived and check-in was easy. He was very helpful and speaks English. We loved our time in Provence and it was so nice to have such a sweet apartment to come "home" to at the end of a full day. There are plenty of great places to eat as well as daily markets to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. Danielle, the owner, was delightful to work with and I highly recommend renting this apartment if you appreciate having a comfortable, spacious, quiet place to stay, and having a washing machine was very convenient too.

Perfect Provence

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two teenage sons spent two great weeks in Provence, made immeasurably better by this apartment. The place is tasteful, spacious, quiet, ideally located, well-furnished, convenient -- everything we hoped for and more. Extremely high ceilings, tile floors, plenty of privacy, traditional architecture, and a beautiful garden/courtyard outside the very tall windows. Food markets and vendors of every description were paces from our front door. Also only one block away: a large public parking garage, which turned out to be a huge advantage when we rented a car (very easy; Hertz office near the Cours Mirabeau) for daily excursions to other towns in Provence and the Riviera. (Try to see as many as you can; we especially liked L'Isle Sur La Sorgue on Sunday market days, Arles with its Roman era mini-colliseum, Avignon with its famous incomplete river bridge plus incredible clifftop park and views, and hill towns Roussillon, Menerbes, and Eze; look them up on Wikipedia for overviews.)

The apartment is in the "old" part of town -- beautiful narrow winding cobbled streets -- but it's not buried in the center. It's near the outskirts, providing convenient access not only to parking, but also to buses, markets, and scenic/historic strolls to destinations like Paul Cezanne's original painting studio. (A highlight for us.) The distance from the old city's busiest blocks (only 3 or 4 minutes walk) was also crucial for giving us peace and quiet at night, since Aix has a lively night life with bars and restaurants that are busy till late, with many patrons eating and drinking on the street. But if you want dining close by, there are pleasant (quieter) restaurants as close as directly across the street from the apartment. Another plus to this apartment's location: you feel like you're living in the "real" Aix, at the opposite end of the old city from the Cours Mirabeau, which is charming but also tourist central. Not to worry, though: everyplace in the old city is safe, clean and feels approachably upscale. And the old city is small enough that you can traverse the whole thing in twelve minutes, so nothing is that far from anything else!

We came in mid-March, and found temperatures perfect for long walks -- sunny and in the upper 60's every day. Owner Danielle and manager Guillaume were helpful, welcoming, informative, patient and very knowledgable.

We can't recommend the place highly enough!

perfectly located, very charming, kitchen just ok

  • 4 of 5
We just got back from a 2 week stay at la Boheme in Aix.

First things first: the place is perfectly located. If you want to explore Aix by foot you won't find any better! And then come home to this charming and cozy place! So nice!

The place has one queen size bed that fits 2, one double bed that however just fits one person since it is shorter than a normal bed and tall people might have to lie a little diagonally, and two more beds on galleries that you climb with ladders. One above the kitchen, one in the room with the queen size bed. Kids love those - not so great for grown-ups though. Therefore the place is perfect for a couple +3 if the couple is willing to share the room with one kid.

Bathroom is perfectly fine for a vacation rental. However here too you shouldn't be too tall. My boyfriend with 1,85m had to crouch in the shower. That didn't bother us at all though.

It was very hot in Aix, but we didn't have to use the AC not even once. Open windows were enough. The apartment is in an old building, which stays nicely cool even on hot days. Perfect for the summer!

Danielle, the owner, is a super nice and helpful lady, who answered all my questions very patiently. Guillaume, the manager of the place in Aix, is very nice and absolutely reliable. I was a bit worried before we got there - with no reason as it turned out.

However, the place has also two downsides that should be mentioned. First of all there is absolutely NO free parking in Aix. Conveniently located from the apartment is covered parking, which however means that you have to include 15 Euro/day parking fees into your travel expenses if you come by car.

The one thing that really bothered us about the apartment though was that the kitchen was so badly equipped. The microwave is at least 20 years old and honestly shouldn't be used anymore. This is not "French", it's just old and not well maintained. The few pots and pans were in bad condition and real cooking was almost impossible. This is a problem if you travel with kids and don't want to go to a restaurant every day. Also it would have been nice to do some cooking with all the nice produce from the daily market! For the rental price charged we would have expected a better equipped kitchen! To make the place perfect I would invest in a new microwave and some decent pots and pans, maybe a coffee machine.

Highly recommend La Boheme in Aix!

  • 5 of 5
This was a dream vacation! La Boheme is an incredibly charming yet spacious apartment in a highly desirable location. Close enough to walk to the markets and squares but tucked away on a quiet street, this rental is in the quaint "old town" which is filled with cobble stone and pedestrian only streets. There are plenty of small cafes steps away, and as mentioned in other reviews, parking is very convenient if you are renting a car. We drove to visit Cassis, Saint Tropez and Marseille for day trips and it was very easy and beautiful.
I highly recommend this clean, lovely apartment- this was my first VRBO experience and it has set the bar very high! We will most definitely be returning!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
This is a very beautiful, spacious, and comfortable apartment in a great location, quiet but close to all the action of Aix. The view of the garden below from all the large windows adds to the charm and gives the place the air of a more rural setting.
We thoroughly and enthusiastically recommend "La Boheme" in Aix!

Lovely, clean, spacious, great location!

  • 5 of 5
La Boheme in Aix was wonderful. The location was so convenient to everything in Aix and day trips out of Aix - parking is very close - Bellegrade. The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. The apartment faces South and is flooded with morning light - it's just beautiful. The downstairs gardens off the terraces (3) were in bloom in late April and were beautiful. We would usually have coffee and breakfast in the apartment every day with the morning light, beautiful garden and quiet atmosphere - it was a perfect way to start the day.
Overall this was our favorite place of the 4 VRBOs we rented during our 2 1/2 week vacation in Provence/Barcelona. This apartment felt most comfortable like home while we were enjoying being away - the vaulted ceilings, the spacious rooms, the comfy beds, the shower (lots of hot water and great pressure), the small but complete kitchen, the location, and especially being VRBO owners, the clean & well maintained condition of the Apartment - I really can't complement enough the management and the owner, Danielle. We pride ourselves on maintaining our VRBO so our guests can have the "vacation of a lifetime" and it seems that Danielle and Guillaume feel that way too. If you like a clean, comfortable, convenient, safe "home base" from which to visit the coastal towns and /or the villages of Provence - this is your place.

Car: not necessary

You are in the middle of this charming old city. Everything is at walking distance (approx 5 minutes away). If you stay a week, you might not need a car, but if you do, there is a parking garage, just a short 3 minutes walk. There is a lot of charming villages around Aix that are definitely worth seeing and for that you will need a car. You can also go to the sea and back in a day(1/2 hour). You can visit St Tropez in a day starting early, it is about 2 hours away.

For music lovers, July is the best month. The Festival not only offers official venues, but a lot of old 'hotels' open their doors to small orchestras, so you enjoy the music and the architecture.

Really, every month is marvelous in Aix: the shopping is attractive all year around, lots of antique shops, plenty of boutiques and galleries, museums and of course the outdoor markets. I think there is one everyday at less than 10 minutes walk.
