Why Owner chose Beaurecueil
This a house we built three years ago. It's the result of a dream we had, no doubt influenced by the spacious volumes we have seen in american and australian houses. It's all constructed around the main view that one can admire from the bay windows in the spacious living room, and in each room we feel close to nature because of the 360° views outside. We have kept the natural and mineral side of the terrain because we are situated on the Grand Site Sainte Victoire. Beaurecueil is an exceptional place, the surroundings are immortalized by Paul Cézanne.

Wonderful experience in beautiful setting
We stayed in this lovely home for a week in May. With 4 bedrooms, it was the perfect size for our group. It is close to Aix, but located in the country in a beautiful secluded location surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, a fantastic pool, and an unmatched view of Mt Ste-Victoire from the house and patios surrounding the house. The house is newer, which means it has a modern bath for every bedroom, a modern kitchen and laundry, and many unexpected conveniences. However, it also has a lovely Provencal quality and is very comfortable and personal in feeling. There are windows on all sides with lovely views, and the house is very open and light. Many comfortable outdoor spaces for eating, relaxing, and just taking in the views. It was perfect for our needs.The owners are delightful, and provided lovely welcoming touches for us. There were also very helpful detailed instructions for the house including how to work all the appliances in the kitchen, WiFi, maps and directions for local restaurants, shopping, walking and hiking, cultural sites. Wonderful art everywhere in the house! Relaxing by the pool in the warm May sunshine was a treat. The owners made everything very easy for us, from arrival to departure. Absolutely nothing fell short of our expectations, and many things exceeded our expectations! We would stay here again in a minute, and wholeheartedly recommend it! Thank you Katharine and Dominique for sharing your wonderful home!
Many thanks to you all for this write-up. It was a pleasure to have you to stay. You will always be welcome. Katharine.
Wonderful House and first class owners
Property is as good if not better than in the pictures. House is of a very high standard. Peaceful, pretty and with great view. Very good privacy in the large and well maintained garden. Ample parking including garage. The most helpful and good willed owners you will come across. Would wholeheartedly recommend this.
A perfect house in Provence
This extremely comfortable house is situated in the countryside but still only 10 minutes by car from Aix-en-Provence. The house itself is not old, has very comfortable bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. and has an enormous living area which is very spacious and charmingly decorated with a glass front looking on to the mountains and a gallery above. The kitchen is large and well appointed with a long table seating at least 10. In fact there were 4 different dining areas on the property - in the kitchen, in the living area, outside on the terrace , and beside the pool. A spot for every time of day and weather. The pool is large and has very comfortable furniture as does the rest of the house. The owners are extremely charming and generous with their time and information about the local area. As we arrived towards the end of September, there were some cooler nights and they kindly heated the pool before our arrival and during our stay which made swimming a pleasure. This house made our stay with our family a great success, we were only sad that we had so little time to spend there as there was so much to see and do. This is one of those houses where you walk in and immediately feel at home. We hope to get there again one day!
Thank you very much for your comment on your stay. Our turn to say that you were delightful guests, and to say that we wish you all the best, and perhaps to meet up again one day. Your hosts.
A Truly Special Place
We rented this house at the end of July: two families total of eight people. The house is spacious, very well equipped and well maintained. The hosts are lovely people (English and French-Australian and have lived in the area for many years) who, after greeting us on arrival and providing a run through of the workings of the house and an outline of the area, were always on call if we needed anything or had questions about the house or things to do in the wider area. They have tried to think of everything to make this a wonderful holiday stay: going out of their way to provide the little extras. The house is only a few years old which means the bathrooms and kitchen are all modern and the whole house is spotlessly clean. The pool area is fantastic with plenty of good quality loungers. The house is set in its own very spacious grounds, and has the most outstanding views of the St Victoire Mountain. "It's so peaceful out here" we kept saying to each other as we sat out in the evenings watching the light fade over the Mountain.
The local boulangerie had a huge selection of delicious breads and pastries and the market in Aix en Provence was a foodies delight. There is a good supermarket and nice restaurants within 5-10mins drive.
This is a truly amazing property in a breathtakingly beautiful area of Provence and a perfect location for some lovely day trips by car. We would strongly recommend this property to family and friends.
Kathryn and Kez.
Thank you very much for your warm recommendation. We would be most happy to have your group of family and friends again "chez nous". All the best, your hosts.
It doesn't get better than this!
How pleased we were to discover this delightful home tucked away in a spectacular country setting just minutes from the old-city charms of Aix. The grounds are expansive, picturesque and very private, surrounded by sunflower fields and dotted with pine and olive trees. From the patio we enjoyed an unparalleled view of Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which gave us a dazzling display of light at sunset. In the evenings, we would cool off from the heat of the day with a glass of rosé, take in the view, and listen to the buzz of the cicadas singing their song of summer. Bliss!
The home is spacious, cool, clean and uncluttered. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and laundry, a large, pristine pool, and several comfortable seating and dining areas. Katharine’s marvelous paintings hang throughout the house, making it all the more special. Three of the bedrooms have full en-suite bathrooms.
Dominique and Katharine could not have been more gracious and accommodating. We arrived late, and they were kind enough to stock the refrigerator with a few essentials so we could have a bite upon arrival and a relaxing breakfast in the morning without the need to dash out to shop. They had wonderful suggestions about things to do in the area, scenic drives, where to shop and the best places to eat, and they checked in periodically during our stay to be sure all our needs were met. They were friendly and flexible on all matters and were excellent and conscientious communicators from the day we booked their home, months in advance, right through to the end of our stay. Our security deposit was refunded promptly.
Beaurecueil was perfectly situated for our needs. Quality restaurants with friendly locals, welcoming staff and delicious fare are close at hand, ranging from the upscale La Table de Beaurecueil, to the cozy Le Mas de Meyreuil, and the casual Le Relais Cezanne. Grocery stores, a fresh fruit and vegetable market with a case of local cheeses, and a delectable patisserie with treats both savory and sweet are near by. Day trips to Provencal destinations like Cassis, Arles, Saint-Remy-de-Provence and the hill towns of the Luberon are a snap. Beaurecueil is an easy drive to the Marseille airport and the Aix TGV station.
Thank you Katharine and Dominique! We will be back.
Many thanks Abigail for this great write-up, you and your family will always be welcome!
