Why Martine and Jean chose Nord
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.

Amazing Home and Gardens- Absolutely Beautiful
We could not believe our luck in renting this truly amazing home in Aix. It is first class in every way. The home is large and spacious. The pictures do not do it justice. All the bedrooms are on the lower level with three bathrooms. Each room was very comfortable with nice linens and towels. The kitchen had everything you could want or need and I do mean everything! There were multiple places to eat...in the kitchen, dining room, upstairs patio, downstairs patio. The outdoor grilling area had everything you could need - small refrigerator, grilling tools, spices, plates.
The grounds and gardens are beautiful and expansive. There is total privacy. The property is on a hill and as you swim in the pool, you have a great view of Aix. The pool was extremely clean and very inviting. Plenty of chairs to relax and pool floats. Loads of games- bocce, pool, table tennis, etc.
We highly recommend this property and hope we can return in the future.
Thank you Martine and Jean.
Everything you could wish for is included.
Owner very attentive and helpful. Great for young children.
A great stay in Aix en Provence
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.
Hi Jack, thank you for your very positive review. On our side, we want to point out that you took care of our house as if it were yours. We will be happy to host you again. Martine and Jean
This was the perfect home for our multi family vacation!
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.
Hi Susan, thank you for your very positive review. We were very pleased to host your group. You all took care of our house and garden. Happy to host you again whenever you want. Martine and Jean.
Perfect for our family!
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!
Thank you Greg for your very positive review. Happy to hear that your family (5 young children) enjoyed a lot our house and garden. We will be very happy to rent the house again to you.

Charming AIX rental
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.
Maureen and her friends were very nice renters and took care of our house. We highly recommend this group. Martine
