"We stayed here - two couples - for a week in September 2014 and enjoyed our stay.
The town of Apt is a good base for exploring the villages of the Provence / Luberon area including Roussillon, Gordes, Menerbes and Bonnieux and is only about an hour from the autoroutes and Avignon.
The town has all the standard amenities - shopping, restaurants and markets. It is an old town so most of the streets are not suitable for vehicles. For drivers, park beside the river adjacent to the D900 or the market square to the east of town. Note the warnings for flooding during heavy rain or cars being towed for the market so that there are no surprises.
The apartment is located in the center of Apt, a block away from Ste Anne's Cathedral, about five minutes away from the parking areas, and consists of the upper floors in an old building.
It is quite difficult to imagine the layout from the photographs so this may help. The apartment is accessed by a narrow staircase and the main level is about fifty stairs from the street level. The main level contains the kitchen and living area, one bedroom and loft, toilet and shower / laundry room.
The kitchen is well equipped with all the modern conveniences and a table and chairs for dining. The living area is small with few chairs but has TV and Wi-Fi connections. The TV sound did not work while we were there but that was not an issue for us since we were not watching any TV. The Wi-Fi connection was reliable and we used it with an Ipad for email etc.
On the same level is the first bedroom with a double bed. This also is the access to a small loft with a small bed. This would be suitable for a couple with a young child.
The toilet is a separate WC, and the shower and laundry facilities share the same room.
On the next upper level (another dozen or so stairs) is a loft which overlooks the kitchen / living area. This has twin beds and a low beam. You will at some time (guaranteed) bang your head on the beam.
On the next upper level is an enclosed rooftop loft (another ten or so steps) with a table and a few chairs and a pleasant view over the rooftops of Apt.
The apartment was clean and many basic items were provided - salt and pepper, dish soap, garbage bags, laundry detergent - and stores were within walking distance.
The apartment is well run and the owner is flexible and personable and available if you have any questions or need assistance. We would recommend this property to others."

"Look no further- this is the place to stay in Aix. Looks out over the Cours Mirabeau, fabulously furnished, well appointed kitchen, location, location, location! My husband and I stayed a week at this charming studio apartment and really enjoyed our time. It was so fun to open the windows and see and hear all the happenings on the street. We got to meet Christian who was welcoming and gracious. The apartment absolutely met our needs - and we enjoyed some leisurely mornings with the great sunlight. I agree with previous reviewers who said the stairs were good exercise after eating gelato and les pain de chocolat. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for anyone - it's really just perfect. We enjoyed doing some cooking, making coffee in the French press, and basking in the natural light. The bed was really comfy, washer and dryer were handy, the shower was a little tight (good use of small space!) but great attachments! We will definitely stay here again if we get back to Aix - thank you Christian and Sherrie!"
