Our unique property is wonderfully located within walking distance of the historical centre of Aix en Provence with its many restaurants, shops, bustling markets and sightseeing yet the house is in a tranquil setting in 3 acres of of beautiful grounds overlooking the famous Mont Ste Victoire.

There is something for everyone in Aix en Provence. For those that enjoy visiting there is the grand Théatre de Provence, the cathedral of St Saveur and the many sites related to Cézanne, not forgetting the many international music and opera festivals . For those that want to venture further afield there is so much to see within an hours drive of Aix. There is Baux de Provence, Arles with its famous arena, the lavender fields, the vineyards of Luberon, Avignon with its papal palace. For the more sporty there are numerous hikes in the area with extensive national parks , mountain biking and white water rafting in the Gorges de Verdon. The coastal town of Cassis is within half an hour and from here you can venture into the beautiful Calanques either by foot or by boat. Alternatively you can sit back and relax around the large salt water swimming pool and enjoy the natural surroundings. We do hope to welcome you to our home very soon and feel sure that you will love it and the region as much as we do.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My French husband and our 4 children moved here nearly three years ago after having spent 4 years in Oxford and we have simply fallen in love with the place! It is an ideal spot as the children can be completely independent with our proximity to the centre of aix , yet it is an absolute haven here, 3 acres of garden overlooking ths St Victoire in the Provençal sunshine...bliss!

Why the Owner Chose Nord, Aix-en-Provence, France:
We immediately fell I love with its charm . It has all the advantages of a new build (it was built 9 years ago)but with all the charm of a typical bastide , the high proportioned ceilings the beautiful old tiled floors. So much effort went into choosing authentic materials particularly the beautiful iron staircase and the beautiful old doors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's unique tranquil setting in 3 acres of land is quite unique so close to Aix so we are extremely lucky! A dream come true! We hope that you will come here and make it your home for your stay.
