The possibility of painting exceptional landscapes on the spot! Easels, stools, and a certain supply of necessaries for painting supplied free. An atmosphere of artistic creation in the house. With a 360° panoramic view on Cézanne's countryside, and a magnificent view of the Montagne Sainte Victoire, quiet, comfortable, with its private pool, this is an ideal place to spend a holiday. Ideally located in the heart of Provence.
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.
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.
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!
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.

En pleine campagne à 10 minutes d'Aix, cette grande maison est idéale pour des vacances avec ou sans enfants. La vue sur la Sainte Victoire doit être une des plus belles de la région. Piscine, poney club, promenades à pied ou en vélo, visites artistiques, gastronomiques ... il y a tout pour plaire à quelques minutes de la maison. De plus Dominique et Katharine, les propriétaires, sont absolument charmants et feront tout pour que votre séjour soit un succès. We highly recommend renting this house !
Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans cette belle maison très agréable disposant de quatre chambres avec salles de bain y annexées.
Les équipements sont complets et de bonne qualité. La piscine a une taille permettant de s'adonner aux longueurs (elle peut se fermer la nuit par un système automatisé ce qui permet de conserver l'eau à bonne température). Elle se trouve juste à côté d'un petit sous bois très agréable avec en contre bas un petit ruisseau.
De la terrasse de la maison, il y a une vue sur la montagne Saint Victoire qui est splendide et qui permet de profiter des belles couleurs s'y projetant au coucher du soleil .
Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et disponibles.
Nous recommandons vivement cette demeure.
