Outline:

Of all the regions of France, Provence is one of the most irresistable.From the wonderful lavender fields, to the rich and colourful villages and towns, you feel a real sense of history and culture of the area.

Originally a Spa town founded by the Romans, today Aix is a labyrinth of tiny alleyways and squares and is known as the 'City of a Thousand Fountains'. You can experience and explore the historical sites,cafes, restaurants and superb markets of this lively Provencal town literally within walking distance of the apartment. Stroll down to the local boulanger to buy croissants or just sit with a coffee and enjoy the bustle of the market being set up for the day. Imagine the local produce that you will see at the daily market, the smell of fresh melons,the wonderful array of vegetables,fish and cheese.

Capture the true essence of the South of France from our centrally located apartment in Aix.

Use Aix as your base to visit many of the beautiful villages of the region. If you do not have your own transport we offer tours to ensure that you see all the hidden gems of Provence. Explore Avignon and Arles, the stunning villages and markets of the Luberon. The coastal villages of Cassis and Bandol to name but a few, are all within easy reach of Aix. A boat trip to the crystal clear waters of the 'Calanques' would be a real 'must' on the list of things to do.

Cultural, wine and food tastng tours in Aix can be arranged on request, together with fully comprehensive tours of Marseille, the Cote D'Azur , Saint Tropez,and the 'Gorge Du Verdun'.

Nice Stay in Aix

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is very nice. It was roomy, and comfortable. The terrace was great. Rooms on the front are a bit noisy as the revelers start at 2 am and the newpaper delivery drivers thump their papers on Rue de l'Opera at 3 am. Closing the windows deadens some of the noise. The location is wonderful with only 2 blocks between you and the profiteroles for breakfast. The old town of Aix is so fun, and the street markets are worth experiencing. The only drawback is the four stories to the front door. For those with any mobility problems, this would not be the place for you.

Lovely Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in an excellent location with comfortable beds and a lot of space. There's a tankless water heater, so no shortage of hot water, nor water pressure. Although there was some rain on our visit, we nonetheless really enjoyed the terrace. Kitchen contained everything one could need to prepare a family meal. I we absolutely visit this property again. From booking to departure, it all went smoothly. Donal, the property manager was icing on the cake. His advice and guidance were invaluable! If there were one negative, it would be the toilette situation. Only one WC, which was dated, at that. But.... that is what it is. Wouldn't prevent me from staying again, nor recommending the property to others. We simply loved our stay!

Comfortable Apartment - Once You've Climbed The Stairs!

Comfortable Apartment - Once You've Climbed The Stairs!
  • 4 of 5
This apartment is in a great location, very well equipped, and comfortably furnished. The terrace is a real bonus, even in the winter sitting outside in the sun was lovely! The stairs are a workout, though, and the one, single toilet might be a bit of a bottleneck for larger parties. Communication with the owner was easy, and the local contact, Donal Brannigan, was also a terrific (and reasonably priced!) tour guide who added greatly to our enjoyment of our trip.

Easy access to Aix

  • 5 of 5
The terrace makes this apartment unique and all the more enjoyable. We sat out in the sun for lunch and often in the late afternoon with wine, cheese and bread. It's up three levels or 60 steps by our count, but that was easily forgotten once you entered the apartment. It's a short walk to the Cours Mirabeau, the heart of Aix and around the corner from cafes, restaurants and the Granet Museum. The bathrooms are very modern, the living room area very spacious and the kitchen well equipped. We often shopped in the markets for cooking dinners. A car is helpful, but the bus services to various Provencal towns is reliable and moderately priced. You can rent cars for a few days and parking is included with the apartment. I'd choose to park at the Coronet location rather than the closer location near the apartment. Most older apartments even though renovated have only one toilet. This did not prove to be an inconvenience to us or our guests. The master bedroom can be noisy if the windows are open since you are right over the street (Opera). Overall this is a terrific apartment to use as a base to explore Aix and Provence.

Perfection in Provence

  • 5 of 5
Looking for a last minute booking in Aix as a means to escape the truly miserable British weather we were fortunate enough to be able to secure this apartment. I've always been skeptical of photos of beautifully featured properties but having arrived in Aix we found this apartment was just as described and shown in the attached images. Immaculate throughout, perfectly positioned, everything you could possibly need all there to hand. I read through many of the comments left in the vistor's book, needless to say they were all very positive, but I noticed that so many of these international vistors had returned to this apartment time and again..some for several years. We hope to return soon too...simply marvelous!

family from Minnesota

  • 5 of 5
We loved our apartment in Aix! Everything was neat, clean, and ready for living. We especially appreciated the washing machine as we did a lot of (dirty) mountain climbing. The location was SUPERB; as it was right off Couers Mirabeau we never got lost and it was convenient to the markets and restaurants. The apartment was so spacious that some of us could nap quietly while the others cooked or visited. Once we found the parking garage, it was very convenient as well, although we were surprised at just how small a space is used in Europe. The 6 flights of stairs up the apartment were fun for us, but I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone with a heart condition or arthritis.
My only slightly negative comment would be that, in the owner's manual, directions were given to local sites to see (the calanqes and Mount St. Victoire). We found these were very hard to follow and got lost for hours.
In summary, this is a wonderful apartment, location, and experience in general! I will be using VRBO in the future.
