Attractive 2 bedrooms apartment on a very quiet street in a very quiet building. You are in the center of everything - shops and restaurants all around you but it is calm and you can sleep. You close the door and because of the mezzanines and the green of the garden, you have the feeling you are in a house. Just 30 minutes from Cassis and Marseille, 1 hour from St. Tropez and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery the lovely La Boheme in Aix is your perfect location to conveniently explore this part of France!
You will be greeted at the shuttle from plane or train by Guillaume, my agent. He will take you to the apartment, familiarize you with the apartment, answer all your questions and tell you about events and interesting activities in the area.
It is important for guests to respect the calm/quiet of the building and the street. This is imperative! There are plenty of places to celebrate on the Cour Mirabeau but guests must not disturb the neighbors in the building....moreless

You are in the middle of this charming old city. Everything is at walking distance (approx 5 minutes away). If you stay a week, you might not need a car, but if you do, there is a parking garage, just a short 3 minutes walk. There is a lot of charming villages around Aix that are definitely worth seeing and for that you will need a car. You can also go to the sea and back in a day(1/2 hour). You can visit St Tropez in a day starting early, it is about 2 hours away.
For music lovers, July is the best month. The Festival not only offers official venues, but a lot of old 'hotels' open their doors to small orchestras, so you enjoy the music and the architecture.
Really, every month is marvelous in Aix: the shopping is attractive all year around, lots of antique shops, plenty of boutiques and galleries, museums and of course the outdoor markets. I think there is one everyday at less than 10 minutes walk.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I came to the US with my husband for 2 years ... forty years ago! We came with 2 suitcases!
In 2005, I decided it was time to have my own residence in France. Of course, I am not able to reside here half as much as I would like. My family is from Lyon, it is not too far. But here it is all the charm of Le Midi.
Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence: I fell in love. This is my home in France. I live in the States and I need to recharge regularly. It is my treasure!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: It is spacious and the ceilings are so high! Here everything is pleasing. You can walk everywhere. I used to live in Boston, a very pretty city, I now live in Reno/Tahoe, NV, very
beautiful landscapes, but really Aix is another world for its charm, history, music and joy of living! and the Mediterranean a hop away!
