Aix en Provence apartment description

Beautiful, bright & spacious 3 bedroom loft style apartment, in classic 160 yr old Provencal building, is on a semi-pedestrian street, in the famous 16-18th century 'Quartier Mazarin', seconds from the Cours Mirabeau & at the heart of Aix en Provence. Previously a carpenter's workshop or 'atelier', it retains its exposed oak beams & old advertising on the façade.

At 115 m.sq or 1250 sq.ft, this single level apartment, overlooked by the mezzanine, has 3 double bedrooms, a large bathroom with bath & 2 sink units & a separate toilet room, o. The large open plan living/dining area is the heart of the apartment & is flooded by sunlight.

Founded by the Romans in 122 B.C. Aix en Provence is a very beautiful city of food markets, cafes, boulangeries, cathedral & churches, universities, student life, art exhibitions, public gardens, 100 fountains & fabulous restaurants throughout its narrow cobbled streets.

French history & culture lovers can visit the ancient cites of Arles, Avignon, St Remy & Orange. 'Amateurs' of wine can tour vineyards & taste the rich reds of Chateau Neuf du Pape, refreshing roses of Bandol or the excellent Henri Bardouin Pastis of Fourqualquier.

One can sunbathe, swim & hike nearby at the Calanques of Cassis or within 1-2 hrs drive east along the Cote Azur to Saint Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Nice & Monaco or west to the Camargue national park, famous for its pink flamingos, bulls & cowboys.

From touring through Van Gogh's sunflowers at Arles, the lavender fields & perched villages at Gordes & Roussilon in the Luberon National Park, painting or photographing Cezanne's famous Mont Saint Victoire, to cycling your own Tour de France at Mont-Ventoux, Aix is the perfect location to begin touring Provence.

We offer a great place to stay here, from family vacations seeking the authentic Provence. Assistance is offered in English & French & a detailed guide to the locality is provided in the apartment for your enjoyment.

Uniquely, we can offer an 'Apartment & Tours Package' helping you best experience the many great treasures that Provence has on offer.

We also offer our guests one FREE Marseilles Airport or Aix TGV pick-up on arrival & have one parking space in a nearby private garage for rent.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: A 45 year old Irish transplant to Aix, I first visited friends here 14 years ago and the rest, is history. Living here some 10 years, the sunlight, sea, countryside, history, food, language & the people never fail to delight and surprise. This photo is of one of my favourite tour hikes at En-Vau in the Calanques of Cassis.

                  Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
                  Aix en Provence is at the heart of Provence and the Quartier Mazarin represents the best of the old and new, new being 200 years old here. Aix is the crossroads city of the south, east to Italy, west to Spain, from Northern Europe to Africa, Aix is influenced by all its neighbours. So life here has a unique fusion of culture, language & cuisine. An international town of Art & Education, Commerce & Law, Aix is very welcoming to new arrivals, always lively with markets and festivals, full of charm and character. Yet in moments one can be in the countryside of sunflowers and lavender fields, old roman churches and vineyards. The area offers such a variety of landscapes and cultures, from mountains to the sea, it really is a great place to live & the best base for touring provence.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  A sunlight filled, single level (except mezzanine) loft style apartment with 3 comfortable double bedrooms. The living area & dining table seat up to 8, so space to host friends for dinner or drinks. The apartment 'really' is seconds from the famous Cours Mirabeau, at the heart of this ancient walled city and 2 minutes stroll from its markets & museums, cafes, bars & restaurants. It's all one hopes for & imagines of an idyllic Provencal setting. Uniquely we can offer an 'Apartment Rental' & Private Tours' package in our 7 seater people carrier, helping you make the most of your precious time in Provence, whilst minimising the hassles of car rentals, parking & traffic. However, if you wish to drive too, we can offer expert tour advice & guaranteed access to a parking space, in a private garage nearby.
