Aix en Provence apartment description

This apartment is located on a lovely street of the ancient city of Aix-en-Provence, just steps away from the Museum of Natural History and a block away from the famed tree-lined Cours Mirabeau. This third floor apartment is a bright, elegant, fully renovated and fully equipped, one bedroom, one bath apartment with all the charms and warmth of old Aix-en-Provence living. Bathed in yellow and ochre, with traditional red 'tomettes' tiles on the floor, the apartment features all the comforts and warmth of a Provençal home with excellent amenities.

Upon entering the apartment, on the left, you will see the kitchen, with yellow and red Provencal tiles, and which includes a washer, dryer, microwave, coffee maker, new Cuisinart Cookware and of course oven and cook top stove. In front of the kitchen is a bar, with wrought iron stools, which provides an excellent area to have your morning croissants and plan the day.

Upon entering the living area, or salon, there is a dark brown leather sofa and two soft buttercup-colored upholstered armchairs, a decorative fireplace, an entertainment area with a wide screen flat-panel TV (with 60 channels including CNN and BBC), MP3/CD player, free and unlimited international calling to the US, Canada and Australia, WiFi Broadband internet access, and a large selection of English language books and CDs. At the far end of the salon, is a dining area that seats four and from which you can look out at elegant turn-of-the-century buildings across the street.

The bathroom is fully renovated, and features a shower area, halogen lighting, shelving and hairdryer.

After passing the salon area, you enter the bedroom, which features a queen sized wrought iron bed, with new American mattress and box springs, down filled comforters and American quality all-cotton linens and mattress pad. Closets line the back of the bedroom, and include excellent hanging systems and shelving.

The apartment is decorated with Provençal fabrics and artwork and includes a romantic fusion of Provençal antique furniture. The best of both worlds! Security features include an intercom system and self-locking door.

Located on a street with high-end shops and lovely, traditional Grand Family residences, there are no restaurants or bars close enough to disturb at night (yet only a few minute walk away). With double paned glass windows and new heaters, this lovely apartment, your home in the city of Aix-en-Provence, can be enjoyed in every season.

This property is not handicap accessible.
Pay, secure parking is only a few minute walk away - though a car is not needed for a stay in Aix-en-Provence! The town is mostly pedestrian and the infrastructure for visiting the surrounding areas is excellent.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I've welcomed visitors to France since 2001. Though a native New Yorker, I think I must have been French in another life, and have since very happily relocated to Provence in 2007, dividing my time between the apartments (see also VRBO #394861) in Aix en Provence and the house in the Luberon (VRBO #57385) This place is truly everything the guidebooks say it is - Paradise on Earth. As the French saying goes, 'On vie bien en Provence!' [we live well here] and so I hope to welcome you to this magical part of the world.

              Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
              Perhaps only someone who has never visited Aix-en-Provence might ask the question 'why settle here?'. A friend once commented - 'you no longer take vacations since it seems staying in Provence is enough of one for you'. Please do come and experience the area for youself. You will understand.......

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The apartment is romantic, cheerful, comfortable and the location is excellent - if you wish to visit all of Provence, or just spend your time wandering the beautiful city of Aix. Please come and visit, and make this apartment your home in the South of France.
