ReviewsWrite a review
I would agree with the previous 5 * reviews! This is an exceptional place - great for large meals shared round big tables. Very peaceful. Plenty of space to read quietly on one of the several terraces. Fantastic super-clean swimming pool. The village is very pretty & has a nice bar. This is a truly amazing place if you like mountainous road biking - I recommend doing the circuit of Mt Ste Victoire anticlockwise & clockwise (also try to include the D56C climb). Local wines are good & you can taste them eg on D17 up from Puyloubier. There's lots of walking & signposted routes from the house (eg up to the barrage). Lovely countryside - you see what Cézanne painted. Aix is great - museums, street events in summer, markets etc. The building is interesting: architect-designed - an architecture student in our party loved the sitting room! To get to the place just drive up the turn-off by the Moulin de Cézanne for about 150m and on the right are metal gates with the house number & name. The owner is very helpful and answers emails promptly. Our party thought it the best place we have stayed in yet (and we have done this every summer for years!).

Wonderful house in exceptional surrounding

The house is original, spacious and extremely comfortable. It is very well equipped. The garden is gorgeous, the swimming pool just perfect. We stayed there for 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. It's well located for walks in the Sainte Victoire mountain or for good restaurants in Aix (10 min by car).

Recommended for: Families with young children.
We stayed in this house in the summer of 2010 for 2 1/2 weeks. We were basically 2 families with occasional guests that brought the number up to 12 at one point (we asked the owner to provide extra mattresses for that occasion). Everybody thought the house was wonderful. This is quite an ideallic "mas provencal". Beautiful house on the hills of Mount Ste Victoire, tucked in age old pine woods on a substantial piece of land. The views from the terrace (where we had all our meals), and pretty much from everywhere in the house including the pool are splendid. The landscaping is also quite beautiful. The house is very well appointed. The location is quite convenient: 10 min drive to the center of Aix through a picturesque "scenic" route; the best baguettes and french pastries we've had in a long while are 5 min away at La Palette. At one point we were buying 6 baguettes/ day! Le Tholonet is a picturesque little village, and Aix is a wonderful city to stroll around. When you arrive you may be a little overwhelmed by the owner's review of all the things to do and pay attention to around the house: the fact is that she takes great care of her house and is actually very service oriented. She and her husband were always available for any questions or needs that we had. A practical advice: we asked the owner for some basic shopping prior to our arrival; it helps in giving us time to relax. Make sure to include soaps/ shampoos in the shopping list as those aren't provided. We highly recommend this property.
