Le Tholonet villa description
Authentic Provençal villa close to centre of historic Aix-en-Provence with a fine modern interior: fully recently renovated spacious house comprising 325m2 with four bedrooms including luxurious modern Bulthaup kitchen plus a studio with a fifth bedroom and including its own fully equipped Poggenpohl kitchen. Outdoor kitchen and barbeque under attractive stone built canopy gives full flexibility for entertaining. Situated within walking distance of the centre of Aix-en-Provence and on the edge of the Sainte Victoire National Park, the house has a beautifully landscaped mature garden of approx 1600m2, including an attractive salt-water swimming pool with electric cover. There is a north-facing terrace sheltered from the sun and lined with bamboo leading out from the kitchen (ideal for lunches on hot sunny days under the fig tree) as well as a south-facing terrace overlooking the swimming pool which is perfect for enjoying a glass of rosé in the evenings…..
The house is set over three floors:
Top floor: bedroom 1 and bedroom 2 and one bathroom.
Middle floor: main living area (kitchen, dining area, sitting area and large main hall), a large well-equipped utility room, WC, corridor leading to light and airy bedroom 3 with its large en-suite bathroom with walk in shower and full bath, and flat screen tv (all on opposite end to living area, so quiet).
Bottom floor: bedroom 4 with attractive en-suite bathroom and walk in shower.
The studio (bedroom 5) includes a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom area and en suite bathroom along with built in wardrobes and plenty of storage.
The main contemporary kitchen was installed in 2010 and has top-of-the-range Gaggenhau appliances (fully integrated coffee machine, steam oven, oven, American-style fridge and freezer). There are 4 bathrooms in total (3 of which en-suite), and one WC. The property is secure with an electric gate including intercom system, and parking within the grounds.

A lovely spacious perfectly located villa in Aix
A lovely spacious perfectly located villa in Aix
We had a lovely stay at L'Acanthe Provencal Villa. The location is perfect - close enough to town to enjoy dinners and all the culture and shopping of Aix-en-provence but just a short drive away from the seaside of Cassis, St. Tropez, Nice and small villages to explore. A lovely park across the way for walking or exercising. The house was extremely clean and well equipped to feel right at home. Kate, the owner, was helpful offering suggestions for activities and things to do. Our weather was wonderful - perfect in fact! We loved our stay at L'Ancathe and hope to return again soon.

About the owner: Mother of two small children. We lived in the house 2009/2010 when we fully renovated it with the intention of living long-term which is why we renovated to such a high quality (for example the Bulthaup kitchen), but unfortunately had to move back to the UK in 2010.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love L'Acanthe because of its rare quality of being a beautiful house so close to the centre of Aix-en-Provence, but with such easy access to the Sainte-Victoire national park with all that it has to offer.
