Great for families and guests!
Great for families and guests!
This home is ideal in every way! It is walking distance to centre-ville with your own private large garden for the kids to play, gorgeous pool and lounging area and lots of sun. The kitchen is beautiful and wonderfully equipped with casual and formal dinning. It even opens up to a sunny patio with a barbecue and outdoor dinning area. The home is tastefully decorated and more than comfortable for a family and lots of visitors. We enjoyed every moment there and can't wait to return!

awesome location for this house
awesome location for this house
this house has a gorgeous pool and lots of spaces for entertaining. the property is fun for kids to run around and lots of areas for them to play games. the pool is heated so you can swim in the spring and fall. the owners take great pride in their home, so any issue is seen to by pros they have known in the area. when you drive up into the property, BAM! there is this majestic, sun soaked, provincial bastide- in you are right in the heart of Aix en Provence. Pick up a seasonal membership at the nearby Set Club and enjoy tennis and squash, they even have a kids day program in the summer and during the holidays.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are Americans from Seattle who love southern France. We fell in love with this property, bought it, lived in this home for a year while fixing it up, and plan to return regularly.
Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
Aix-en-Provence, the capital of Provence offers everything -- art galleries, restaurants, wineries, great shopping, and 300+ days of sunshine per year. It's a university town with plenty of festivals, and markets 3 times per week.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is uniquely located in a quiet, upscale area of Aix-en-Provence, but is a 10 minute walk to centre-ville. We spent a year updating the property. Unlike many homes in Provence, it has high ceilings and is full of light. Don't miss the amazing markets every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday!
