A very relaxing stay
We had a really lovely stay here in Phil and Deirdre's house, just outside of Aix-en-Provence.
The garden smells of lavender, the pool is a cooling oasis of calm - and all the while, the center of Aix is only 10 minutes away by car. There is a little bit of noise from the road nearby, but you quickly get used to it, and the benefits of being so secluded yet so close to the fantastic city of Aix outweighs this, I think.
With two small children in tow (18 months and 2 months old), it was perfect for us to have two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs, in addition to a large master bedroom and bathroom upstairs where our (childless) friends stayed. The house had really easy access for people with things on wheels - such as prams!
I must add that Deirdre and Phil are wonderful people. They live next door, but we had all the privacy we needed. They have a lovely son who is the exact same age as our eldest son. We spent some time with Phil and his family, which was great for our son, who really enjoyed having a playmate during his holidays.
I recommend this house, especially if you're looking for somewhere really easy with kids, calm and secluded, yet close to a big city with all the action you can wish for.
