About this property

Renovated Medieval House at the Foot of Mont. Ste. Victoire

Puyloubier is the perfect base to explore Provence and the Cote D'Azur. Our house is less than an hour from beaches and seaside villages, 20 min. from the beautiful cultural hub of Aix en Provence, close to countless vineyards, hilltop villages and hiking trails and cycling routes, and 40 minutes from the lively metropolis of Marseille. It benefits from the spectacular scenery and quiet atmosphere of a village on the side of one of the most picturesque mountains in France, without sacrificing access to cultural, outdoors, gastronomic and other attractions.

Nestled at the foot of Mont. Ste. Victoire, 20 kilometers east of Aix-en-Provence is the picturesque village of Puyloubier. It is just large enough to sustain a grocery store, children's playground and sports fields, primary school, post office, cafe, restaurant, bakery, and variety store, and is home to the award-winning local Cave Cooperative, selling wonderful and very inexpensive wine. From the house, visitors can walk up the mountain immortalized in the paintings of Paul Cezanne.

The Non-Smoking house is a traditional 'maison de village' and the foundation dates back to medieval times. The interior of the house combines traditional style with modern amenities. The house comprises five rooms and two bathrooms: the updated kitchen/dining room and renovated bathroom (with a shower but no tub), and the second full bathroom, the master bedroom with a queen bed, and second bedroom with single and double beds, as well as the comfortable queen sofa bed in the living room, which opens out onto the large terrace upstairs which is shared with the house next door. Each house has a table and chairs for outdoor dining, surrounded by plants and lovely views. The house sleeps five comfortably, 7 in a pinch. We have a bed and highchair for a baby/toddler as well as a stair guard. The main room features a dishwasher, clothes washer, kitchen counter, dining room table, six chairs and easy chairs. A modern gas stove and North American-style refrigerator complete these rooms. The stone sink in the house is centuries old!

Puyloubier is close to amenities of every kind, from Mediterranean Beaches to the cultural, market and shopping activities in Aix en Provence and Nice. The region is rich in cultural and outdoors activities, hosting many galleries, music festivals and theatres, as well as being a centre for hiking, mountaineering, cycling, and swimming. There are several children's amusement parks and adventure playgrounds, as well as beaches and pools for children of all ages. Historical and religious sites of interest abound locally, but perhaps most arresting are the beautiful landscapes which have attracted artists from Van Gogh and Picasso to the Canadian Group of Seven, who stayed in a house a few miles away.
