Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My french husband and I and our 4 children moved to Aix en Provence from Oxford UK in 2010. We absolutely love it here and will be delighted to fill you in on everything this beautiful area has to offer. Waking up to blue sky and sunshine is a definite plus! Aix en Provence is a beautiful city within walking distance and yet the cottage and bastide are set in 3 acres of garden so one immediately feels on holiday!

Why the Owner Chose Nord, Aix-en-Provence, France:
This is our home and we are delighted to rent out our cottage and share the delights of the region with visitors . We love meeting new people from around the world and are very happy to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I am very happy to arrange language lessons, cookery demonstrations, guided tours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting is rare so close to Aix and the views are beautiful . There is a boules for you to enjoy like the locals! The large saltwater pool is generally in use from April onwards. The convenience of the location. During busier months it is wonderful not to have to worry about taking a car in to Aix and access to the motorway is easy for visiting the rest of the area.
