About the owner: We worked and lived in France (Aix-en-Provence) for more than 17 years, when we moved back to the States, we had to have a place in this lovely region of France. We go back every year and love this house and beautiful Provence!!!

Why the Owner Chose St. Martin de Bromes:
We know Provence very well and the house is near Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Nice, mountains (Alpes de Haute Provence),Italy, Spain, Germany and Switzerland. We love Provence!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very cute village, nice people and near all big cities: Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Nice, Monaco, even Italy is not far, and 3 hours to Paris if you take high-speed train (TGV) from Aix-en-Provence. We are in the heart of Provence and the lavender country, so much to do and visit, excellent restaurants, village outdoor markets........
