A very enjoyable two-week stay
This apartment was in a great location in Aix-en-Provence, adjacent to the Mazarin district, a very short walk to the Cours Mirabeau and in a lively street with shops and cafes.
The owners, Christine and Edouard Bain, were very friendly and welcoming and were on-site to greet me on my arrival, to give me the keys and to show me the apartment.
The property was clean and contained all that was needed for a comfortable stay including a washing machine, kitchen utensils, crockery, cutlery, television, free wifi etc. A great feature is the large outdoor area, directly accessed from the apartment on to the rooftop, complete with a small table and chairs, benches and sun lounges.
The bed is comfortable and cosy. The drawback for some may be the steps to access it, as it is on a mezzanine level. The apartment itself is on the third floor of the building (without a lift), and within the apartment itself the toilet and washing machine are on a lower level than the rest of the apartment.
The apartment is quiet and secure. I stayed here for a fortnight in May/June 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
Delightful, characterful studio flat
centrally situated we had access to places of interest, shops, restaurants and public transport. The flat was cool and had an amazing, private terrace; it was surprisingly quiet. We received a warm welcome from the owners and would certainly consider booking again.

"My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful apartment for a week earlier this year (2012). We can''t say enough great things about our stay.
The apartment is even more charming than in the photos. It is decorated with style and is very well equipped with all the comforts one would need. The location is perfect: right in the middle of beautiful historic core and steps away from all the shops, restaurants and sights. There is an extra large terrace looking out to beautiful spires of a cathedral, a real treat. It made a perfect getaway for two.
We have travelled extensively in France and have stayed in over a dozen rental apartments. This one was really one of the best we''ve found anywhere- so charming and cozy. The bathroom and shower are especially fabulous, newly renovated and very bright.
The owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and they went out of their way to make our stay special.
We have truly wonderful memories of our time here. We would not hesitate to stay here again and to recommend this amazing place to all of our friends.

"The apartment was very clean as well as the staircase, pavement and street. The street was very charming with every little shop you need for a pleasant stay in France. Cafées, bakeries and restaurants were situated close to the apartment and the bakeries were open early in the morning. The view from the kitchen was overlooking the street and from top level of the very big terrace you could see the church and the roof ridges of the buildings nearby. As for the amenities - there was everything we needed and they were fully functional. The apartment was easy to find in the center of the old Aix. The walk from the bus station following the main street was easy, as we had backpacks, and took us merely 15 minutes. If you arrive by taxi there is no problem to stop right at the front door. However, parking is not possible on rue d'Italie so if you come by car you have to find a parking lot on one of the nearby streets. Rue d'Italie is a quiet street (one-way only). The only time we heard some noise was during one of the week-end nights when people were returning home after a late night performance during a music festival on Cours Mirabeau. Mme Bain was a pleasant acquaintance and she was very welcoming and helpful. We certainly look forward to our next stay in this apartment".

"Cool apartment with lots of character and amenities. Very French. The flat's highlight for us was it's great backyard patio. This place was in a great location on a lively street that helped make our stay in Aix very pleasant. Stores,resteraunts, shops, bakeries,museums were all nearby. Also, the elegant Cours Mirabeau boulevard was just a block away which was perfect... Aix is one of best cities in Provence by far (its market is the best too, don't miss it) Nice time."

"We had a perfect stay in this excellent apartment. It is ideally located for restaurants, shops, bars etc., right in the centre of town. It has a beautiful terrace with a lovely view of the nearby church. It was clean, well-appointed and quiet (all the more surprising given its central location). It is ideal for self-catering, with a well-stocked kitchen (including a dishwasher), which was a pleasure to cook in. We will definitely be back.
Nous avons eu un séjour parfait dans cet appartement excellent. Il est situé idéalement pour les restaurants, boutiques, bars etc, dans le centre de la ville. Il a une belle terrasse avec vue sur l'église voisine. C'était propre et calme (ce qui est surprenant car il est dans un emplacement très central). Il est idéal pour les chalets de vacances, il a une superbe cuisine (y compris un lave-vaisselle). Nous reviendrons certainement. (Désolé pour notre mauvais français!)."
