Experience this beautiful university town founded by the Romans. It has immense charm, outstanding historic architecture, great food, hearty wine, bustling markets, sunny year-round weather, and an international cosmopolitan flavor.
It is quite accessible to Avignon (an hour), Nimes (an hour and a quarter), Arles (50 mminutes), Marseille (35 minutes), and Mediterranean beaches (35 minutes), and just a few minutes more to the Cote d'Azur. In opinion polls, it has more than once been voted on by French people as the town they would most like to live in.
The property is located in one of the loveliest areas of Aix, but only two miles from the center of town in a calm semi-country setting with large trees and beautiful Provencal vegetation. One can walk to the Cours Mirabeau (the Champs Elysees of Aix) in 35 minutes, as it is only 2 miles away or else there is frequent bus service only 700 meters from the property.
The house is owner occupied part of the year and is therefore very well equipped and maintained. It is charming and well-furnished with 17th, 18th, and 19th century doors throughout. There is a combination living/dining room, an office, and a fully-equipped kitchen as well as two double bedrooms and a sleeping loft for two people overlooking the living room. There are two recently renovated marble-tiled bathrooms (one ensuite), plus a separate toilet. There is a fireplace, flat screen TV, washing machine, dryer, air conditioning in one of th bedrooms, fans for the other rooms.
A large terrace and garden surround the house which is located on a hill, and one climbs steps to reach it. The view from the terrace is lovely. Off-street parking is available.
There is an extensive library with books for all tastes as well as a VCR- DVD player with a selection of English language films.
