Beautiful spot. Close to center. Breathtaking view on saint Victoir. Only the beds are much too short (1.80m)! And tree of them are for small kids.

quelles belles vacances !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé en famille d'inoubliables vacances dans cette maison pleine de charme située dans un cadre exceptionnel, à quelques minutes seulement du centre d'Aix. Découvrir le potager et le poulailler a été la "cerise sur le gâteau" qui a agi comme un aimant sur les enfants et permis à tous de se régaler ! Pour ne rien gâcher, les propriétaires se sont montrés très disponibles et adorables. A refaire dès que possible.

Excellent séjour sur la plateau de Bibémus

  • 5 of 5

Propriété basée sur le plateau de Bibémus, dans un environnement complètement préservé mais pour autant à 3 km d'Aix. La maison est aménagée avec goût aussi bien à l'extérieur qu'à l'intérieur et la propriétaire des lieux est accommodante. Séjour parfait au calme au milieu de la garrigue et à deux pas de la Sainte Victoire. Situation idéale
