Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
We have always been city dwellers- Montreal and Paris. Moving here we wanted the Provencal countryside feeling, sounds, smells and views. YET we want to be able to get to conveniences easily and quickly. By bike or foot when possible.This house is ideally secluded and private, yet neighbors are close beside. No noise from the street, nor from the neighbors. Sound of owls at night. No homes visible from the property. We are right at the heart of where you want to be in Aix. Easy drives to schools, kids activities, restaurants, catch trains and airplanes.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Eguilles is an untouched gem, Love being able to see the village church off to the west and hear the bells in the distance.
