The upper lounge area extends out onto the terrace, capturing the sun throughout the day. There is a BBQ on the terrace for those who wish to buy and grill produce from the nearby market.

Of all the regions of France, Provence is one of the most irresistable.From the wonderful lavender fields, to the rich and colourful villages and towns, you feel a real sense of history and culture of the area.

Originally a Spa town founded by the Romans, today Aix is a labyrinth of tiny alleyways and squares and is known as the 'City of a Thousand Fountains'. You can experience and explore the historical sites,cafes, restaurants and superb markets of this lively Provencal town literally within walking distance of the apartment. Stroll down to the local boulanger to buy croissants or just sit with a coffee and enjoy the bustle of the market being set up for the day. Imagine the local produce that you will see at the daily market, the smell of fresh melons,the wonderful array of vegetables,fish and cheese.

Capture the true essence of the South of France from our centrally located apartment in Aix.

Use Aix as your base to visit many of the beautiful villages of the region. If you do not have your own transport we offer tours to ensure that you see all the hidden gems of Provence. Explore Avignon and Arles, the stunning villages and markets of the Luberon. The coastal villages of Cassis and Bandol to name but a few, are all within easy reach of Aix. A boat trip to the crystal clear waters of the 'Calanques' would be a real 'must' on the list of things to do.

If you are a wine enthusiast, vineyards are scatterd around the whole region of Provence. Cultural, wine and food tastng tours in Aix can be arranged on request, together with fully comprehensive tours of Marseille, the Cote D'Azur , Saint Tropez,and the 'Gorge Du Verdun'.
