  • 5 of 5

Excellentes vacances, dans un lieu enchanteur, calme et reposant à proximité directe d'Aix en Provence et point de départ pour de nombreux lieux de visite. Les enfants ont largement profité de la piscine très agréable. Soleil omniprésent. Merci à Cécile et Marc ainsi que leurs enfants pour leur accueil chaleureux!

Superbe maison. On se sent comme chez soi. Le jardin est magnifique. La villa est au calme sur les hauteurs, à l'écart de l'agitation mais quelques minutes du centre d'Aix. L'accueil des propriétaires était très chaleureux. Tout est prévu pour que vous vous sentiez comme à la maison tant la maison est bien équipée.

Le Rendez-Vous
Car: recommended

Motorway Exit: Aix en Provence Pont de l'Arc (30b).

Follow D8N direction : Luynes.

After the post 'Luynes,' take the first road on your left: avenue Jean pelisse.

Then follow the road until next junction then turn left : avenue L Cartoux

The road goes uphill

You 'll end at another junction and the Chemin de la Capelasse is on your right. Our house is N°110

Discover the charm of Aix-en-Provence, town of water, town of art.

The town also knows how to blend different eras and culture.

Discover the famous city of the painter Cezanne: markets, shops and pedestrian streets, outdoor concerts, museums (including the Granet museum where exhibitions are organized just like the Picasso-Cézanne retrospective)...

Here, all is colour and sensation: the light of the sky, the transparent green of the fountains, the shade of the plane trees, surprises held by the festival nights (

It is also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area: the mountain Sainte Victoire, where you will find many hiking and mountain biking trails. Enjoy a swim in the turquoise waters of the Creeks near Marseille (53 km). Spend a day in the cities of art and the Avignon Popes' Palace (84 km), Arles and its Roman amphitheater, museum Antique and Van Gogh Museum (78 km). The opportunities are at hand, you can also visit beautiful Provencal village such as Les Baux de Provence (72 km)

All in all, they are so many reasons to come to Aix-en-Provence, as it is a focal point for all your discoveries in the area!
