About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)
MODERN MARVEL IN 18TH CENTURY BUILDING
My flat, located in the historic heart of Aix was recently remodeled with the finest quality materials and is furnished and outfitted as a personal residence rather than as a rental unit. It is, after all, my home in Aix and I love staying there. I'm sure you will too!
Its location on rue Chabrier, in the historic center of Aix en Provence, is seconds away from food, flower and antique markets, and makes it an ideal home away from home.
The two bedroom, loft like space, features custom hand made iron windows, Bisazza tile in the bath, an Arclinea kitchen, marble and Corian kitchen counters and colored concrete floors. The two bedrooms are independent, have doors and are completely private from the main living area.
The furnishings are an eclectic mix of interesting pieces and original artwork. I'm an interior designer by trade and amateur chef by preference.
The kitchen is outfitted for those who love to cook and entertain, with Kitchen Aid mixer, blender, food processor, gas cook top, huge oven, microwave, pretty much every cooking utensil, pot or pan you could think of and an American refrigerator with water and ice dispensers.
There are many sets of vintage plates, serving pieces and linens at your disposal along with all the usual modern varieties. Let your imagination go wild creating a beautiful table setting while your partner in crime is cooking up a wonderful dinner from products and produce purchased just outside the front door....or call for a reservation or takeout from one of the hundreds of local restaurants
The lovely terrace overlooks the historically classified rooftops of Aix and has a view of the clock tower of the Hotel de Ville and the spire of the cathedral, both of which are illuminated at night. It is furnished with a summer bed, table, chairs and gas BBQ
A perfect place to stay to explore the music, architecture, food and culture of Aix en Provence and surrounding areas!
Fourth floor, no elevator.
Please, one week minimum rental.

About the owner: Hi, I'm Lisa, an interior designer, originally from San Francisco. I've been in love with France ever since I was able to spend 6 months in Paris at the age of 17. Have been coming back ever since. In 2004 I was lucky enough to make the big move and live here full time. Fortunately, everyone loves to visit Provence, so I often have friends and family visiting. I also have a stone farm house with pool one hour away from Aix, in the Luberon/Vaucluse overlooking the medieval village and chateau of Lagnes. As of January 2013, I am starting renovation on a small apartment in the Marais in Paris, just next to the Pompidou Center. So, if interested in other property rentals, please let me know. Thanks for your interest in my listing
Why the Owner Chose Centre Ville, Aix-en-Provence, France:
I just couldn't have found a better project for me and a better location in Aix. After all it really is all about 'location, location, location' The property had been abandoned for several generations and after all the structural work and reinforcements were done, I had a blank canvas to work with...a dream for an interior designer
