Why Martine and Jean chose Aix-En-Provence

This house is being our family house since 2000. We have been living there with our 3 children. They are adults now and they live in their own house. We refurbished the house in order to rebuild the antique atmosphere of the end of 19th century but also to live in a modern and comfortable setting. What is wonderful here is the quietness of the house and of the large garden despite we live at 5-10 minute walking distance from Aix downtown.

Of course, we will not be living in the house during your stay but we stay ready to help you if needed.

What makes this house unique

Very quiet large house with large garden and swimming pool at a walking distance (5-10 minutes) of Aix en provence downtown.

We had a wonderful stay at this house. The location is absolutely perfect as it is only a 10-minute walk to the centre of town but it is so quiet that you feel like you are out in the country. We didn't have a car during our stay and we were easily able to get around town and the surrounding areas by walking, biking, and taking public transit.

The house is very spacious and easily accommodated our family including 2 small children plus guests. The garden is huge and the pool is gorgeous with a view over the town. The owners are lovely and were very helpful and accommodating. I recommend it without hesitation. We plan to return next year!

Perfect spot for our group

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this house. There was plenty of space for our two families of seven people to live comfortably. The property is very attractive with its yards of trees, infinity pool and nice views. It also felt very secure; just far away enough to avoid the bustle of downtown Aix, yet close enough to walk anywhere with relative ease. Martine and Jean were so hospitable to us all. I would come back here without a second thought

Wonderful and comfortable rental with charming hosts

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from vrbo/home away many times and this was my all time favorite rental. The villa was beautiful, affordable and very comfortable. Martine and Jean were excellent hosts and went out of their way for us. I would go back to this area just to stay at this house again. Highly, highly recommended and I hope to return.

Beautiful house and pool

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 families who stayed here in August 2015. The house was everything we could have wanted. Quiet location but very close easy walk into centre of Aix. Pool was great and much bigger than it looks in pictures. We were so comfortable here and Martine was so helpful and welcoming. We would love to come back again to Aix and this house

Amazing home, great location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home moments away from downtown yet secluded. Our two families, 4 adults, 6 kids, stayed very comfortably. Nice yard for kids to run around in and play soccer, swim, or ping-pong when we were in. Owners very accommodating and patient and timely. Great indoor and outdoor areas for eating and socializing. Board games, chess, etc if weather had been bad. Definitely want to go back.
