Aix en Provence studio description

Aix en Provence, founded by the Romans attracted to its thermal springs, is a beautiful university town a half hour north of Marseille and an hour and a half west of Cannes. In opinion polls it has more than once been voted on by French people as the town they would most like to live in.

It has immense charm, outstanding historic architecture, wonderful sunny weather, lively markets, great foods (hundreds of restaurants), hearty wine, and a large international community. It is large enough to be cosmopolitan and small enough to be human. For music lovers there is a world-class opera festival every July.

The studio is at road level in a gate house on a property with beautiful Provencal vegetation located in one of the loveliest areas of Aix in a calm, country setting only two miles from the center of town (easy walking distance). It is in the north-east sector of the town, which is the side which has been protected from development. There is bus service into town about 700 meters from the property. If you walk a half hour in one direction, you are on the beautiful, historic, and lively Cours Mirabeau, the Champs Elysees of Aix and one of the most famous boulevards in France. If you walk in the other direction, you have a peaceful and lovely country experience. Many guests have used this for jogging and hiking.

The apartment is spacious and tastefully furnished. It contains a sleeping area with a queen-sized bed and large closet, a marble bathroom with a shower and washing machine. There is a sectional couch with TV in the living area, and a completely equipped kitchen (with dishwasher, 2-door refrigerator with roomy freezer, micro-wave, induction burners and oven), and a dining area with table and chairs. Guests can eat outside in the good weather on a charming adjoining terrace.

The apartment is light and bright, and was recently redone. All linens, cooking ware, and dishes are provided. There is a parking area which can accomodate a compact to medium-sized car.

Keywords: Large, attractively furnished studio, all amenities, wifi, parking, quiet, peaceful, semi-country setting, near center, terrace, walks, jogging, spacious, queen-sized bed, full kitchen, well-equipped, nature.

                  Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
                  Please consult this section of listing #5958 (the gate house on the same property) for more information about how I came to be here and my reasons for loving Aix and my property in particular. I would hope that you will come and love it as much as I do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  It is rare to find a studio apartment of this quality and size in Aix, particularly in this part of town with its large properties, beautiful environment, and lovely Provencal vegetation. It is in the north-east sector of the city, the side which has been protected from the development, that has characterized other areas. There is bus service into town about 700 meters from the property, but one can walk to the Cours Mirabeau in a little over a half hour or hike instead in the other direction to enjoy nature and the countryside. It is like having the country in the city.
