CHARMING BED AND BREAKFAST IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE

Aix-En-Provence Guest House Rental Photos and Description

Old Provençal farmhouse transformed into a B&B with 3 spacious bedrooms

Welcome in the heart of Provence, in a green setting, 5 min from the town centre of Aix-en-Provence. Old stones and authenticity lovers must come discover this place that will seduce you with its character and its simplicity.

“Le Four des Banes” is a country farmhouse that was probably built in the 18th century, on the ruins of an older construction that housed an authentic Roman oven dating from the 2nd century.

The old oven has been preserved and constitutes the curiosity of this convivial and authentic place.

The farmhouse is located 3 km away from the town centre of Aix-en-Provence, in the countryside but close to the main roads. It is at the centre of the roads leading to the Alpilles in the Verdon or the Lubéron and not far away from the first paths leading to Sainte-Victoire Mountain.

Style and choice of items is sober, mix of wood, wrought iron and old stones, here, everything has been designed to bring comfort and warmth.

The main room is bathed in light thanks to its large openings and invites guests to spend some moments of tranquillity and privacy.

The kitchen houses the old oven, it’s the main room of the house where the guests can relax and have breakfast.

From May to September, pool and sunbeds wait for the sun and farniente lovers. Garden furniture is also at your disposal to comfortably end the day.

If you want culture, need nature or if you’re searching for a gourmet getaway, choose Aix-en-Provence and stop at “Four des Banes”.

A great place and the perfect hostess

  • 5 of 5
We booked with Laurence for our Easter vacation because of the convenient location and the great reviews that she - and her breakfast ;-) - have received here on HomeAway. The actual experience of our stay even surpassed our high expectations. Laurence has made "Le four des Banes" a very cosy place and she runs it perfectly. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the location is great: quiet and yet easy to reach from the motorway and close to the center of Aix (her estimate of 5 min by car is no lie and in case you do not have a car there is a bus stop about 100 m from your doorstep). Laurence herself is the perfect hostess. Her freshly made breakfast does indeed deserve the highest praise and her very helpful recommendations for places to have dinner and for places to see were all absolutely spot on. Laurence's description of Le Four des Banes on this web site is accurate and the photos are not made to exaggerate (only the pool maybe looks a little bit bigger than it actually is, but given the temperatures in April we anyway had no chance to try it out ;-)). If you plan a vacation in this area, this is indeed "the perfect place to stay".

Excellent place - very well-maintained and nicely located. And Laurence is an outstanding hostess - she really went the extra mile to take care of us and also gave us some great tips in terms of places and restaurants to visit. Hope to go back there soon.

Outstanding Accommodation!!!!

This was a sensational place. The owner was outstandingly helpful, kind and excellent hospitality. The ambience and setting were excellent. Les Four Des Banes had history and was immaculately clean and neat.

Charming house and welcoming hostess

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a tastefully decorated B&B in Aix-en-Provence, look no further. Me and my husband stayed here for 4 days and Le four des Banes and it was very enjoyable. The guest house is very new. There are 3 rooms right now. There is a great open space where guests can relax, watch tv, listen to music or use wifi to surf the Internet. There is a beautiful swimming pool in the courtyard but the weather was not warm enough for us to use. On arrival, we were welcomed by Laurence who was very friendly and helpful. She provided us with numerous recommendations on what and where to visit. Every morning, we were served with an excellent breakfast, served with proviencial servery. The property is only 5 min drive from the bustle of the Aix city centre which was very convenient. I definitely recommend this B&B for couples and family.
