Recent Aix en Provence reviews
"The only reason not to write an excellent review for this property would be to try to keep it all to oneself in the hope that no others would find out just how great it is. But that would do a great disservice to a wonderful host, Valerie Sutter.
We have rented in many countries and no place equals 48 Cours Mirabeau. It lacks nothing you might need. Valerie's anticipation of our needs was extraordinary. The terrace is a real bonus.
Others have written effusively about the apartment's location and Aix. To that I can add nothing. If you are a city person, you can't beat Aix for a medium-sized city with all the culture, food and shopping you could desire.
We live in Boulder CO. It is highly regarded as a place to live. Aix beats it by a mile.
We spent July 2015 at 48 Cours Mirabeau. The temperature was mostly in the high 90's while we were here. That would have been enough to ruin many a vacation. Not here. We could always retreat to the apartment's air conditioning after some time exploring.
The bed is full-sized. That worried us as we have a king-size at home. But it is an excellent bed and we slept well.
We did not have a car, but found the local Aix-en-bus pass more than adequate to get around including going out to the nearby countryside villages for wine fairs etc."

"This sweet apartment was everything we hoped it would be. All the pictures and descriptions in the other reviews are right on! The apartment is perfectly situated in Aix. It is on a busy and scenic square, right in the heart of things. We practically fell out of our door into the wonderful Aix markets.
There was no trouble with the noise of the cafés right outside....at night we just closed the windows and it was perfect for sleeping. Didn't even need to close the shutters.
There are several convenient parking options nearby...one parking garage is in fact right under the apartment itself...however that garage is small (~26 spots), so we opted instead for Parc Pasteur (~600 spots), which was a very pleasant 10-minute walk away. (with both Parc Cardeur which is right under the apartment, and Parc Pasteur, you can check the number of remaining spaces online, which is very handy! Google these names to find the pages that show the status). These lots were about 15 Euros for a 24-hour period, which we considered worth it for the convenience...but there are even cheaper lots (about 3 Euros) that are about a 20-minute walk away. Anyhow, lots of parking options, even though the apartment is right in the historic center!
The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home! My husband is a chef and he enjoyed preparing meals at home several nights. The apartment overall is somewhat small, but then again so is most of everything in Europe. That said, it really is quite big enough. We were two people and we always felt relaxed and never cramped. I think the high ceilings and giant windows help, and also just the thoughtful way everything is arranged. It is well-designed and well-outfitted for comfortable living.
We were a bit concerned about the bedroom being in the back of the apartment, without a window to the outside...would there be enough fresh air? Well, it was really quite nice, I must say. We stayed in the apartment in the middle of June (for 9 nights), and it was quite hot outside during our stay, and the bedroom was always comfortably cool with a nice movement of air. The fact that there is air conditioning and a couple of fans helped a lot. I'll also add that the bed and the pillows were super comfy!
Can't say enough good things about Helene, the owner. She was so kind, personable, and was more than willing to spend time with us showing us information and making helpful suggestions and recommendations. Just a lovely person."

"We stayed here in October. I chose it because I wanted a decent studio in the centre with parking. The location is great, very clean, very quiet, beds very comfortables. Armand was very helpful and friendly. This charming studio is in a wonderful location."

Excellent apartment, location & service from Lea & Kim
"We had a lovely stay at this excellent apartment. We were a group of adults, parents with their adult children who could do their own thing. The terrace "made it" for us & when in the apartment spent most of our time relaxing or having meals there. Although we didn't need a car in Aix the added benefit of a parking space nearby was extremely helpful (our car was left safely parked in a secure garage for the entire time of our stay). Lea & Kim were extremely attentive & their service excellent. We certainly look forward to visiting Aix & staying at the apartment again."
