Fantastic flat + location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has such unique charm - we fell in love right away. The decor and the feel are cozy Old World so you are easily transported to another time and place. We immediately immersed ourselves in the lovely languorous, lackadaisical days in Aix en Provence. Kristine and Thierry have poured their hearts into renovating this four hundred-year old maison and it shows. Just the right balance was struck between preserving and utilizing historical remnants such as the winding Spanish tile staircase and 17th century stone flooring, and updating with modern amenities in bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to make cooking easy. The location is perfect - right above a Boulangerie and Italian restaurant so the mouthwatering smells of fresh-baked bread and lasagna waft into the open windows - on the edge of Vielle Ville so you are surrounded by great restaurants and fun shops. It is where the action is - but not as noisy as if you were in the heart of it all. We were able to walk everywhere and only rented a car for out of town excursions. Kristine provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants, wineries, and sites in Aix and the Provence region, enhancing our enjoyment and connection to the area all the more. We have made lasting memories here, especially the sunsets on the roof top terrace, with wine and song, and Mount St. Victoire as our only companion..off in the distance. We are definitely going to try to come back!

A perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a too short stay in Aix the first week in March and loved this apartment! The kitchen is perfectly appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the wifi is good. It is a beautiful place and the rooftop terrace is breathtaking. (We loved the upstairs shower as well). The living area is chicly interesting and comfortable. And it is just steps from everything in Aix. You can be an Aix "local" in this wonderful spot. (The owner's book of insider's tips needs to be read---very valuable information).

OUR NEW FAVORITE PLACE IN PROVENCE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 7 days in this two bedroom apartment. The pictures don't do it justice. The apartment is in the perfect location for enjoying the daily markets and is quiet, comfortable and beautifully decorated.The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for preparing meals, including some nice serving pieces. Kristine and Thierry have thought of everything to make your stay a memorable one. We spent almost every evening on the rooftop terrace sipping rose wines and eating the fresh produce from the daily market. We appreciated all of the sightseeing tips, which led us on fun adventures to small villages we would not otherwise have known about. Merci beaucoup Kristine and Thierry. a bientot!

A remarkable place for an enchanting vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised by this property and used it as our base for a week of bike riding in various directions. The photos don't do it justice! As hosts, Kristine & Thierry were very easy to work with from booking to the final day of our vacation. Kristine has "a book" :) which is very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. This apartment is a short walk to the centre of the city action without yet far enough off the main thoroughfare that noise is not a problem. We started every morning with fresh baked goods from Pâtisserie Weibel, creme fresh and fresh fruit from a delightful farmer's market. So good!! The apartment is on the 4th floor so not too difficult a climb and features spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen and a stunning view from the rooftop terrace. We started and wrapped up everyday on the terrace with breakfast and coffee through to dinner, wine and dessert. In the evening we watched the pink skies of Avignon take over the horizon - simply gorgeous!! The bedrooms are spacious and worked very well for our party of 2 couples. Laundry was easy to access and the heat of the day quickly dried our biking gear each afternoon so we were set for the following day. Pictures and words don't do the apartment or city justice ... you just have to visit!

Perfect apartment for a week of hot weather in Aix

  • 5 of 5

Kristine has created a beautiful apartment , the roof terrace is what drew us to the apartment & was a beautiful place to sit early in the morning & later in the evening, overlooking the rooftops of Aix. However the excellent air con was certainly greatly appreciated. It was wonderful to come home to such a beautiful, cool & well appointed apartment after exploring Aix & the surrounding areas.The added extras like a bottle of Provence Rose on arrival & a pantry full of kitchen staples was certainly appreciated. K ristine was a charming host & couldn't have been more helpful, giving us many suggestions - where to eat, drink, have a massage & the towns in Provence we couldn't miss. She was right every time. Thank you so much Kristine we loved our time in your beautiful town & wonderful apartment . We would highly recommend it. We stayed in several apartments during our months holiday & the attention to detail & Kristines assistance definitely made this our favourite!

Provence at it's very best!

  • 5 of 5

If one were to sum up the perfect trip, this would be it! Kristine and Thierry's beautiful apartment is located in a marvelous location. It is in the heart of the old town, with markets, shopping and sightseeing a short walk away and for those who want to venture further afield in Provence this makes the perfect base. Kristine and Thierry provided wonderful insight into some destinations and the warmest of welcomes. The apartment has been lovingly renovated and restored to the highest standards. It has all the modern conveniences whilst retaining all of it's old world charm. The rooftop terrace is an absolute delight! My daughter and I explored Aix as well as hiking the Calanques and Mt. Ventoux. Coming 'home' to the the apartment provided a magical end to the day! Many thanks Kristine and Thierry for your kind and thoughtful hospitality. We look forward to seeing you again very soon! Kindest regards, M & A.
