About Jean Jerôme Grassi

JJ was borne in Marseilles (some time ago!)..and a large part of his family is still living in Aix.

Lea came to Provence...a long time ago..and decided that Aix was (probably!) as nice as her native Bellagio (Note: on Lake Como,Italy!)

However,both have been living in Asia for more than 10 years now...

Jean Jerôme Grassi purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Jean Jerôme Grassi chose Aix-En-Provence

Why keep a nice (and empty!) house when you come to Provence only a couple of weeks a year?

So we decided to offer our dwelling for short term rentals...

Fortunately,we could find a great team to help us manage the property while we are away...

What makes this apartment unique

A great view from the terrace...with no neighbour in vicinity

Total privacy (no one can peer into the house!)

Right in the middle of historic district..and nevetheless totally quiet!

Perfect Aix!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I wanted to experience a real life in Aix and we happened to chose this apartment. And it turned out to be a perfect choice. Perfect location, perfect layout of the apartment, more than perfectly equipped kitchen, and, most of all, perfect owner! JJ and his wife were so helpful and nice that our 2 weeks+ stay in Aix became an wonderful experience. Thank you JJ for the hospitality! Exploring daily fresh markets, flea markets, Aix rose wines, street musicians, cours Mirabeau, and endless alleys and small shops in them, all less than15 minute walk from the apartment, was truly incomparable fun. Even after 2 weeks of stay, there still were so many hidden gems we should yet to discover. There were many stars-my oldest enemy-to get to the destination floor in this apartment. But we couldn't complain it when we saw the beautiful sunset and pouring stars at night from the rooftop terrace. If anyone dreamed of an Aix life, this is The Place!

SEHR BEQUEM

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben zwei herrliche Wochen in Aix verbracht,jeden Tag schien die Sonne..
Wir haben uns einiges angesehen in der Provence,ganz bezaubernd waren Lourmarin und Grambois (25 km Nordlich von Aix)
Eine beeindruckende Aussicht hatten wir vom Felsplateau des Fort Buoux,das JJ uns emlfohlen hatte.
Erfrischende Bäder hatten wir auch in LES LECQUES und am wunderbaren LAC DE SAINTE CROIX genossen.
Sehr vermissen werden wir nicht nur den herrlichen Obst-und Gemüsemarkt auf dem Place des PRECHEURS,sondern auch Eure Dachterrasse mit seiner phantastischen Aussicht und Eur sehr gemütliches Wohnzimmer.
Unser Erik werden besonders die leckeren Desserts von PAUL fehlen,so wie die hausgemachte Eise von EDOUARD et MAELLE...

Estupendo, céntrico y acogedor

  • 5 of 5
Poder alojarte en este apartamento es como poder estar en tu propia casa. La decoración, y todos los demás elementos que hay en el mismo, son más propios de tu lugar habitual de vivienda que de una vivienda de turismo. La casa está llena de pequeños detalles destinados a facilitar tu estancia. Empezando por un gran frigorífico, siguiendo por la cafetera de muy buena calidad, y llegando hasta aire acondicionado en toda la casa.
Pese a estar en el centro de la ciudad, cuenta con unas vistas de la misma y su entorno estupendas.
Pese a estar justo en el centro de todo el movimiento de gente (de noche y de día), por la noche se puede dormir muy bien gracias a sus estupendas camas y el silencio que hay (¡es sorprendente!).
El único inconveniente está en que no es apropiado para personas con problemas de movilidad ya que hay escaleras para llegar al mismo, y dentro del propio apartamento. Además son bastante estrechas.

Resumiendo: totalmente recomendable en vuestro viaje a Aix

We could not have found a better place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
If you are searching for a clean comfortable well equipped and more importantly a very charming home stay in the heart of Aix-En-Provence, this apartment will for sure fulfil your needs.
With my wife, its our 3rd visit in Aix-En-Provence, we love the small terraces, great french cuisine restaurants, local markets, all were at our doorstep. We like to stay at the heart of the action but we are also keen to have a quiet place to relax after our day out. This cozy apartment has been our best choice by far in this nice city. The big plus was of course the terrace!

A TERRACE WORTH THE ENDEAVOUR... for great sunsets

  • 5 of 5
This year we decided to go for Provence for our usual springbreak...
We really liked Aix en Provence...and we chose a perfect location..;
Though initially puzzled by this old 17th building (as most houses in Aix historic district!),we were rewarded by really fantastic views from upper level and from terrace.Absolute privacy... no neighbour...a great panorama!
Probably not so common in the old Town:our choice was a lucky one!
And we must admit that JJ and his wife were very fair in their descrisptions of the place!
We will remember long our "sunset wine" ,for sure!

Great Apartment in Aix

  • 5 of 5
We arrived for a months stay to be met by a very nice representative of the owner who helped us with our luggage and told us about the apartment. Unfortunately he did not speak a lot of English, but otherwise was as friendly and helpful as he could be.

The apartment is just as nice as in all the pictures and we enjoyed the use of the spacious living room/dining room with its comfortable furniture and beautiful views over the rooftops. Since the holiday season in Aix starts very early there were lightshows and fireworks visible from the windows on multiple evenings. The kitchen was very well equipped, but has little counter space and all the appliances have European symbols on their controls. The apartment does not come with instructions as to their meaning. Despite this and never quite figuring out how the oven worked we made many fine meals there.

One thing that made that possible was the daily farmer's market just minutes from the apartment from which we bought fresh everything (but meat) almost everyday. Aix is a wonderful city to use as your base with its numerous squares, fine outdoor markets, and many stores. You can park almost directly under the building, but it is expensive and often you have to wait in a line for a space as the garage is often full. We parked in one of the 2 Euro a day lots just beyond the old city and took the bus (they give you bus tokens at the lot) back and forth to the lot. The apartment is about a 10 minute walk from the bus stop.

The only thing we were not fully aware of and any potential renter should be is that the apartment is up two flights of narrow steep twisty stairs and then once inside there is another flight required to get to the bedroom floor and then another much steeper flight to get to the living room floor. YES 4 STEEP NARROW CURVING FLIGHTS of stairs to get to the kitchen living room level. This often wore us out (late 50's) and we wondered how anyone much older etc. might manage it once they discovered it.

If the above is not a problem then I recommend that you consider this apartment and Aix as a wonderful place to stay and discover Provence from.
