This house was a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house from Martine and had family guests who stayed a total of two weeks of our three-week stay. The house is large by European standards with three bedroom: one with a king bed, one a queen and the third had a twin bed. All bedrooms had more than ample storage space and large windows to let in the glorious Aix sunlight. The one bathroom consisted of a large shower, ample sink and surround with the toilet. It also had a nice window to let the shower steam out even though there was also an exhaust fan. Storage in the bath was more than adequate for five people. For those who use wash cloths, those were provided also as were bath and hand towels. The kitchen was fine for our needs with a four-burner stove and oven which we used only occasionally to cook a few dinner. Pots and pans, dishes, utensils for cooking/baking were also plentiful. I would suggest buying some plastic wrap/aluminum foil if you like to cover any leftovers with those, however, storage for leftovers was provided. An upgrade on the coffee maker would be an asset. The living room/dining room were spacious and very comfortable. I greatly appreciated the family heirlooms in the dining room. They were quite lovely and added to the ambience. If you like TV, there is one in the living room offering basic French-speaking channels. We didn't miss not having English-speaking ones, however, since we were always out to the center of Aix which was only a ten-minute walk away. Some great restaurants in Aix are Mitch (ate two dinners here), La Bouchee (ate three dinners here!), Il Etait use Fois (two dinners), Le Petite Verdot, L'Opera, and Le Bouddoir. If you have a car, you're in luck because parking is included. You will also be able to drive to many different, wonderful sites such as the Gorge;, Loumarin, Bonnieux, Gordes (the prior three are Peter Mayle country!); Sainte Victoire--great hikes of varying degrees of difficulty; Marseilles--see the coastline; Nice, etc. The owner, Martine, is one of the best assets to this rental. Martine lives below, but she is only helpful--very helpful--but never intrusive. I want to mention the front and back terraces, also, since you can enjoy breakfasts on the back terrace and have the sun and evenings on the front terrace with sun (or not as there is an awning which you can employ). The street, by the way, is very quiet. I'd love to go back soon. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Martine!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location (near the hospital) in Aix- - a 5 minute walk ( through Place Vendome garden) to the old town and its markets and shops. Peaceful, well- equipped house. Parking included, and just a little tricky to get in the gate with a big car. The house was clean, with rosé and orange juice in the fridge, and staples in the cupboard.

An amazing lunch, if you have a car, is the 1-star restaurant at the Restaurant Estevan, at the hotel and spa, Le Loge(?) Unbelievable view of Mont St. Victoire. Ask the concierge about the nearby walk down the road.

I definitely recommend this house, and Aix- en- Provence in general.

Perfect location with superb accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the house early November of 2015 for 10 days. We just loved the home and surroundings. Being unseasonably warm during our stay we also enjoyed the private outdoor terraces on the front and back of the house. The landscaping was perfect and such a large lot for being so close to the old city. The house is very secure and in a very safe location. The owner is so accommodating and is so helpful concerning things of the house to any area question. Just perfect! There is so much room for everyone. The living room and dining room were a special blessing to be able to kick back. So home is so very comfortable from the bedrooms to the bath. The house was recently updated but excellently done to preserve the original architecture. The kitchen and bath have brand new fully functional details. Everything a cook needs is provided in the kitchen. Parking is provided behind a secure gate. Also, street parking is available if desired.

  • 5 of 5

"This apartment met all our expectations. It was very spacious, well kept, clean, comfortable and well equipped. There were two terraces at the front and rear so we could have sun or shade. It was positioned on a quiet road close to the centre of Aix and all the facilities. There was parking available on the property and this was very useful. The owner lives below the apartment and was on hand if necessary. We had a very pleasant stay as there was much to see and do in the area."

Excellent souvenir

  • 5 of 5

Les obligations professionnelles ont repris leurs droits... Quel plaisir donc d'évoquer une fois encore ce séjour dans une immense maison, fraîche à souhait, idéalement située à quelques minutes à pied du Centre Ville et pourtant dans un quartier remarquablement calme. Madame Honorat a toujours été disponible, nous donnant ses conseils ou nous faisant part de souvenirs personnels sur les visites que nous avions ou voulions faire.

Tant de choses à faire dans cette belle ville, et au delà, cette magnifique Provence... Notre séjour fut trop court DONC nous reviendrons !
