Aix En Provence Mountain View Vacation Retreat

Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 3 and a half Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Lovely spacious home in Provence with pool in secluded, tranquil, and relaxing setting in the midst of beautiful mountain scenery, groves of olive trees and lavender field.

After a full day of sightseeing, enjoying the markets, theater, museums, and other activities Aix and other nearby Provencal towns have to offer, return to your home-away-from-home where you can enjoy home cooked meals in your fully equipped kitchen. As the meal is cooking, sip your fine French wine, snack on baguette and cheese, and take a dip in your private pool. As you laze around the pool, look up and enjoy the mountain views that surround you with Mount Sainte Victoire forming a perfect backdrop.

Too tired to cook? Call out for delicious pizza or enjoy views of Picasso's chateau as you dine in the local restaurants.

Enjoy this large property. It is a hikers paradise where you can walk out the door and follow trails to the top of Tete du Marquis. There you can enjoy a picnic lunch as you gaze out and see the valley below. Bring your binoculars to see the wild goats living on the cliff side and to fully appreciate the location and size of the property.

Depending on when you visit, you can enjoy cherries in the spring, cut lavender, or help harvest olives in November.

This property is available year round, during the school year and for shorter or longer stays. Just call us with your vacation plans.

Je suis provençal d'origine . Après des années de tentatives décevantes , j'ai enfin trouvé LA maison que je veux louer régulièrement pour mes séjours en France . Je l'ai déjà réservée 2 fois pour plusieurs semaines .

Je n'ai même pas envie de la partager : j'ai l'impression d'être chez moi !

Le vue est merveilleuse . Impossible de s'en lasser . Tranquillité absolue , les premiers voisins sont éloignés ( jamais vus...) , équipements de la maison excellents . Idéale pour les familles .

La base du bâtiment est un ancien mas authentique , et les réfections et travaux engagés sont très réussis .

Bref , j'adore vraiment cette propriété .

Il faut 15 minutes pour être dans le coeur d'Aix : facile !

Alors , débrouillez vous pour réserver en dehors de mes des dates ... ! ( ah ! ah ! ah ! ...)

A signaler l'accueil par Isabelle très agréable , très professionnelle. ( merci à elle !)

The pictures of this lovely house and its surroundings don't lie. It is a beautiful and well-functional house, quiet, beautiful nature all around you, a great pool, and simply a great place to stay. We were two familys with four teenagers, and it worked out great and we could easily have been more people. We can give it our very best recommandations.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

House feels like a cross between Madeline's house in Paris and a Beauty and the Beast structure. Beautiful, interesting, solid, old, details everywhere... very large and very comfortable. Setting, almost defies description. IN an olive grove, in the mountains, ridiculous views from every window. And in the fall, 7 of us used only about 2/3 of the house!

GREAT kitchen for large group meals, hard to walk away from the fireplace at night. Tiny, but very cozy and accommodating restaurant 5 mins away. Isabelle is a delightful resource for travel suggestions and a concerned and helpful caretaker of the property, totally respectful of privacy.

Bus into Aix is very doable, rental cars probably necessary though, for most other offsite visits. Everyone said hike to the priory at Mt Ste Victoire can be done by "anyone"... ahem. Anyone with a decent level of fitness and a lot of time! It was fun, gorgeous, but a really long challenge. Phenomenal views, totally worth the effort.

Didn't ask before if it would have been possible, but would in the future, to have a very basic stock in fridge before arrival (bread, milk, coffee, eggs-nothing more), added to the bill. Groceries not always easily obtained in a hurry at odd arrival hours, an issue with large, hungry, travel-weary family. We managed at a tiny convenience market 15 minutes away, but not a lot of options. Just a suggestion.

All 7 of us (one family) would return any time. This is a gem.

An Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing - a true Provencal experience. As beautiful inside as it was outside. Great large kitchen with everything you could ever need for cooking or serving. Great bedrooms for lots of people (we shared it with two other families and were more than comfortable) and 3 1/2 bathrooms. Perfect. Now let's talk about outside - an incredible pool with chairs for everyone to lay down, beautiful couches to sit on and tables enough for 12 people to sit and eat outside. And the view - the view of Cezanne's mountain is incredible. This is the perfect spot to relax and get away and have quick trips into Aix or other towns and villages in Provence. We would highly recommend this beautiful home and Isabelle the manager was so helpful in helping us plan what to do. We would highly recommend this beautiful, beautiful home. The only bad thing I'd have to say was so hard to leave.

Magnificent week in Provence

  • 4 of 5

Perfect , perfect place. Tucked away on a mountainside with magnificent views all around. The house is very spacious, the pool is immaculate and the outside lounge is very comfortable and convenient. Aix-en-Provence is a short away. We had a great time relaxing and discovering the local area and hiking on the trails directly from the house.It was a great choice for our family of 11 to spend a week together.

Cant wait to go back!
