                                                          Beautiful Traditional Provencal home, excellent location, perfect hosts.

                                                          Sarah P.-

                                                          We recently returned from a 9 day stay at Rene and Emmanuelle's lovely ivy covered Provencal dream home- it's hard to know where to start with this review as so many aspects were even better than we could have imagined. The house itself is lovely- an historic three storey home where the VRBO apartment occupies the top floor. It is a private and gated home with beautifully landscaped gardens. Emmanuelle and Rene live on the bottom floor and the middle floor is tenanted with a separate entrance. Noise between floors was never an issue. The apartment has soaring high ceilings, it is very bright, it has huge traditional double windows that open wide to let in the breezes of the day, lovely antique tiled floors- overall a very charming Provencal feel. The home is very well-equipped, and, should anything be missing, your hosts are hands down the most accommodating and generous people you could ever ask to rent from. For example, our first night, we got in too late to shop, so offering to leave us a bit of bread and some jams (or so I had expected from our quick discussion), we were blown away in the morning to find fresh croissants, other pastries, fresh bread, honey, jam, butter and coffee waiting for us outside our door by 8am. Such kindness. Definitely not part of the rental, but a gesture that I soon learned was reflective of the kind and generous spirits of our hosts, who, over the course of the week, became true friends.

                                                          The house's location could also not have been better to suit our tastes. In it's own lovely neighbourhood near the hospital, it was a short 5 min walk to the most refined side of the vieux village, right near the big cathedral and amid every kind of specialty food shop imaginable. There are two lovely squares in the old village within a 10 minute walk, lovely for a breezy, very French end of the day meal. We found Aix itself to also be a great hub- short drives to so many lovely small villages such as Moustiers Ste Marie, Saignon, and, for on a bigger scale, Avignon and the Gorges du Verdon, the Cote D'Azur and the Camargue.

                                                          Finally, I just cannot say enough about our hosts. We shared lovely evenings, meals, and laughs together after sun down, they were kind, generous, and fun hosts, and we feel very privileged to have shared their home if only for a short 9 days. We sincerely hope to return one day, and until then will be holding our memories very tight of Aix, our dear new friends and their lovely home. Merci encore R et E!

                                                          We all shared unbelievable meals, Sarah, Paul, Michèle and your two lovely children and aperitifs togetherr just because of so good friendship and respect.

                                                          We ve been told so good human qualities about canadian people and culture and that's so true!

                                                          So merci beaucoup pour votre adorable et si beau commentaire.

                                                          We ll miss you and keep on contact.

                                                          Fabulous home in a super location

                                                          Alec V.

                                                          The historic home was absolutely charming and the grounds were lovely , private, and serene.

                                                          The location is phenomenal, just a short walk from the heart of the town and even an organic store, which was amazing.

                                                          Emmanuelle and Rene were extremely accommodating with anything we needed during our stay, offering us suggestions what to see and welcoming us to share meals if we desired. We had wonderful intercultural conversations and insights into France that you just couldn’t get at a hotel.

                                                          Our only disappointment was that we were not pre-notified of the area network for internet, cable, phone being down prior to our stay, even though it had been down for quite some days per Rene. Emmanuelle did work tirelessly in locating a solution for us for 3 days straight, as my husband needed internet vitally for work as a trader, but she was not willing to adjust the rate of the rental because she said ‘it was not a hotel’. We were also charged $20 to pay the 2nd half of the room rate because we paid by credit card, but this was not pre-disclosed on the website.

                                                          We absolutely would recommend staying here as it is unique to have such a fabulous home and atmosphere in a great location.

                                                          Il est vrai qu a votre arrivee il a ete imperatif de rappeler certains points et de ne pas se laisser depasser.

                                                          En effet suite a vos deboires mecaniques ( restant injoignables de 14h a 9h du matin, temps pendant lequel je vous ai attendus avec inquietude; nuit comprise...) sur la route et cette bien mauvaise nuit passee dans votre voiture les conditions ainsi que l humeur fracassante de votre epoux, chere Krristine, n auraient pas abouti a ces belles vacances.

                                                          Sans mon active contribution et votre sainte patience avec votre cher epoux ca n a pas ete simple.

                                                          Quand au paiement il est evident qu un particulier n est pas tenu d avoir un CB.

                                                          Chaque paiement me coute 20 euros et c est pour cela que j avais propose a Mr un autre moyen de paiement de son choix pour le 2e paiement. Il a refuse vous le savez.

                                                          Il me semble deplace de mettre l accent sur ce genre de detail vu que mes tarifs sont plus que raisonables pour la qualite des prestations, du cadre et des services rendus.

                                                          On n est pas a l hotel.

                                                          Je vous ai meme fait visiter les alentours, Kristine, pendant que votre epoux bien mal dispose(voulant en plus me defalquer vos 18h de retard ) reprenait ses esprits apres un bon cafe aimablement offert.

                                                          Concernant la wifi qui a passablement altere l ambiance je venais de changer d operateur et pour palier a la stabilisation des reglages par l operateur je vous ai meme procure un troter 12 G pour tout son systeme special traider....

                                                          En vacances internet est utile mais la "NASA" ce n est pas pendant les conges chez un particulier.

                                                          Il a fallu de ma part beaucoup de patience et de bonne volonte pour que votre sejour se soit si bien deroule avec tous ces beaux souvenirs et nous en sommes tres heureux.

                                                          Le rappel de certains points je le deplore reste deplace dans un avis.

                                                          Vous nous avez dit qu il vous plairait beaucoup de revenir et maintenant qu on se connait davantage il est evident que seul le meilleur est attendu.

                                                          Nous vous souhaitons un tres bon depart dans votre nouvelle entreprise de cultures bio et d avoir de vos nouvelles.

                                                          Etant chez un particulier

                                                          Wonderful stay in a great location

                                                          Majella B.

                                                          Have just returned from a wonderful trip to Provence with most of our nights spent in the brilliant location of Aix en Provence. The location is ideal for touring so many of the historical monuments and towns of Provence. We had a car that we found ideal for this location, once you don't try to drive through the old town!!

                                                          Our base with Emma and Rene was perfect, we had secure parking with our rental and the relaxing feel of their home and garden meant we used to get it hard to pack up and head off on our day trips. Their garden is alive with the beauty of pear trees and hydrangeas and also allows for those of us who prefer the shade. The house has all the facilities needed for a home away from home stay.

                                                          For us another real plus was the walking distance to old town, it is perhaps a 4 minute walk, really you don't get much closer, especially important late at night. Everything about our visit felt very safe both in the property and the town.

                                                          We didn't do any cooking but all the facilities were there if you required. My only blip was the wireless broadband, it wasn't available during our visit, but they had a facility for wired if you had a lap top with you.

                                                          Emma and Rene are the perfect hosts, they want their guests to get the best out of Aix en Provence and their home during their stay and will advise on anything you may need and really just want you to enjoy their home as much as they do. The description and photographs are fully accurate and so you know what to expect. I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend and if we are ever heading back to Aix en Provence would love to stay here again.

                                                          Excelente y recomendable

                                                          maria g.

                                                          Estuvimos 2 semanas en Aix en casa de Emma i Rene y la experiencia no puede haber sido mejor. Aix es una ciudad preciosa y tiene muchas cosas para ofrecer pero tambien es el excelente punto de partida para la visita de la provenza y la Costa Azul. Hemos estado 2 semanas que han sido fantásticas, sin duda volveremos. La casa es preciosa, acogedora, con una decoración exquisita y a solo 5 minutos andando del centro de Aix. Tenéis el hospital justo delante que nos fue bien ya que tuvimos que ir de urgencias con el niño y la casa de Cezane está a 10 minutos andando. Emma y Rene son muy acogedores y atentos. Aunque los dias que estuvimos ellos estaban fuera de viaje, estuvimos conectados por mail para todo lo que necesitábamos y nos dieron muy buenos consejos sobre sitios para visitar.

                                                          Sin duda han sido unas muy buenas vacaciones y volveremos a la Provenza porque aun nos han quedado muchas cosas para ver!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Bonjour Auxi

                                                          Nous sommes très heureux que l appartement ainsi que la maison vous aient plu.

                                                          Notre but est que nos vacanciers se sentent bien dans ce lieu que nous avons travaillé à rendre si beau.

                                                          Nos conversations en espagnol nous ont permi de répondre encore mieux à vos questions.

                                                          Cette reservation a été pour vous je le sais une première expérience et vous rassurer a été un vrai plaisir , les moments partagés ensemble et tous les conseils que nous avons pu vous donner pour vos belles découvertes ont été si bien mis à profit.

                                                          Vous avez adoré la maison ainsi que votre appartement privé et nous souhaitons vous revoir une autre année avec vos si gentils enfants.

                                                          Vous avoir connus et répondu à vos attentes pour ces vacances si réussies et pleines de beaux souvenirs a été très agréable.

                                                          Quizas nos veremos en la maravillosa Barcelona donde yo vivi tanto tiempo.

                                                          Muchas gracias por su confianza familia Garriga.

                                                          Wonderful holidays

                                                          Stefan D.

                                                          In August 2013 we spent two weeks in Emma's and Rene's house and we can recommend it as a really very good residence.

                                                          The house is located in the centre of Aix En Provence- only two minutes to go to the old city- but it absolutely quiet without any traffic noise. The house and the garden are so good as described here in this description and pictures. The interior is on a high level with the own individual character. Pictures and sculptures of Emma's old artist-family give the house a warm atmosphere. The kitchen-equipment, the tableware and the cutlery are complete and high class.

                                                          A small problem with a leakage in the utility-sink was repaired by Emma very quickly. WIFI worked on the first floor only, but perfect and very fast. The own parking place is comfortable.

                                                          Actually I would recommend the house for a family with one younger and one older child. But Emma will modify one of the rooms with a loft bed to fit it for two (older) children/adults together too. Payment of rental fee, caution, electrical current were correct and without any problems.

                                                          The only bad point for us was the nerving noise of the oxygen-pump for the goldfishes in the kitchen.... The pump can be switched off during meals etc., but Emma promised me to exchange the pump with a more quiet one asap...and to send me the loud old one ;-) She and her husband are very friendly, straigtforward and helpful. We would come againe for sure.

                                                          Stefan & Annett Dohrmann, Essen/Germany
