Aix-en-Provence offers world class music and entertainment with its yearly international festivals and provides a picturesque and easy-to-navigate town from which to explore the region. From Aix-en-Provence you can easily visit the cities along the Cote d'Azure (Nice, Cannes, Marseille) the towns of Arles and Avignon and the small Provencal villages in the Luberon. Many guests have commented on loving the access to all the sites in Provence, but loving more so the return to the picture postcard town of Aix. The city center is mostly 'pedestrian only', is entirely walk able and offers every service imaginable, including English language movie theatres. Pay parking is available steps away from the apartment. for those wishing to rent a car.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I've been living here and welcoming the traveler to Provence since 2001. A former New Yorker, I became enchanted with the region like so many others but had the opportunity to make my dreams come true with my first home in the Luberon. Since then, I've added the apartments to my list of favorite places on the planet. I too spend many joyous times in these properties, so I make sure they are comfortable, well maintained and reflect the spirit of the region I love.
Why the Owner Chose Centre Ville, Aix-en-Provence, France:
Perhaps only someone who has never visited Aix-en-Provence might ask the question 'why buy here?'. A friend once commented - 'you no longer take vacations since it seems staying in Provence is enough of one for you'. Please do come and experience the area for youself. You will understand.......
