Why Martine and Jean chose Couronne Urbaine

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.

Charming AIX rental

  • 5 of 5

We were ultimately attending a wedding n Begur, Spain but decided to spend a few days in Aix. We were three couples and loved this spacious and charming house for our six night stay. We did not have a car, so it was important for us to be walking distance to markets and restaurants. Jean and Martine were gracious and very helpful in answering all our questions ans in making recommendations for our visit. Highly recommended.

A great stay in Aix en Provence

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our friends, stayed at La Mas des Oliviers for 5 days in mid September, and we had a great time.We felt very comfortable there, and if the opportunity ever arose, would enjoy coming back. We walked into the city every day, and enjoyed the whole experience of being there. We took a walking tour of the city and got to see and enjoy the food and drink the city had to offer. We also took a day tour of the surrounding areas, such as Avignon, Gord and Chateuneuf du Pape, which we all enjoyed. If the opportunity ever comes up again, we would not hesitate to come back. There were 4 of us staying at the house, but there was plenty of room for another 4.

This was the perfect home for our multi family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and well appointed with everything we needed. It was perfectly located a few blocks from town. We easily walked to markets, restaurants, and shopping in the lively town of Aix En Provence. The owners were super responsive to all inquiries. Would highly recommend this home and this location.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the trip and the house was perfect for our large family and younger children. Communication with Martine and Jean was quick and easy before and during our stay. Plus, they were very helpful with restaurant and activity suggestions. Mostly, we enjoyed the location (close to the city center), the peacefulness of the property, and the amazing swimming pool. We look forward to returning soon!

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
