About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This charming apartment (75 sq mt) boasts an enclosed terrace with a small garden and outdoor table, a private entrance, two bedrooms (sleeps four total) with ample storage space, a living room/dining area, a totally modern kitchen, a full bathroom with tub and separate toilet. Air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter, complete with Provençal colors and plush bed linens, equipped with all modern conveniences (microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD player, radio/CD/stereo with iPod docking station, cable television in several languages, hair dryer, iron, free wifi connection, free telephone calls to all of Europe, the US and Canada), you'll feel like a native with all the conveniences of home. Its ideal location affords walking distance to all the boutiques and restaurants, the old town, shops and open-air markets. And if you’re thinking about exploring the nearby stunning countryside, a designated space at no extra fee in the on-site garage facilitates the parking of a car.
The Aixois like nothing better in the afternoons than to “flâner” (stroll) up and down the Cours, have a drink at a café and chat with their friends. You can join them and feel like a native by just by walking out the door. The nearby rue d’Italie is filled with shops and boutiques of all kinds, so convenient for shopping for the apartment. The Monoprix supermarket is down the street; bring the rolling cart with you to put your groceries in like everyone else in the neighborhood. You can walk to the daily marchés, as there is one every day in Aix and on some days two; there is no shortage of marvelous Provençal vegetables, flowers, and specialty products to tantalize your taste buds. The Granet Museum, one of the best in Provence, is two blocks away, and the gorgeous Saint Victoire Mountain (Cezanne's favorite!) is a short 15-min drive.
Aix-en-Provence is renowned for its music and lyric arts festival in June-July every year, and in August the nearby town of La Roque d’Antéron hosts an internationally acclaimed piano festival. During the year one can take any number of French classes for foreigners, many located within a short walk of the apartment. The state-of-the-art spa--a short 10-minute walk from the apartment--built on the authentic ruins of the former Roman spa, offers delightful cures, massages, water aerobics, and all sorts of relaxation for your aches and pains,.
Have a wonderful sojourn, however long or short, in this well-appointed apartment; it's designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We'll be happy to furnish letters from satisfied guests who have offered to serve as references.

About the owner: I fell in love with France and the French at the impressionable age of 14...and have never quite recovered. A devoted francophile/francophone for thirty+ years, I've wandered around every corner of France, thrilling to each region as if it's a different country, loving the differences and regionalisms I've encountered. Provence is one of my favorite areas, and I love to share it with guests. I've put as many creature comforts into this special 'chez moi' as I spend a lot of personal time there myself, and my guests have always been appreciative. You're here to enjoy yourself et vivre a la francaise! Let the party begin--que la fête commence!
Why the Owner Chose Centre Ville, Aix-en-Provence, France:
Aix is quintessential Provence, a perfect town to hang around in on its own, or use as a focal point from which to discover the other joys of the south of France. I love the central location, the surprising quiet of the apartment, and the dedicated parking space in this town of difficult parking...and you can always keep in touch with home with the free wifi, free telephone usage to all of North America and western Europe.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You're 30 seconds away from everything...walk out the front door, et voila, the Cours Mirabeau in full swing...restaurants, shops, strolling, marchés, museums, monuments, boutiques, banks...or take a day trip to Les Baux, Avignon, Marseille, Cassis, Isle sur la Sorgue, Gordes, Roussillon....then retreat back inside after an outing, an ahh, the quiet and peacefulness of this wonderful air conditioned/heated apartment...where you can cook up a storm, relax and watch TV, check your email, take a nice hot shower et bonne nuit!
