Our friend, Jill, an artist who has lived in Aix for 30 years, recommended this hotel for our brief stay in Aix. As we only had one day and night to explore the city, she thought the location would be perfect for us. What an unexpected surprise La Maison d'Aix turned out to be! We were met by the owner/architect, Laura. She is as gracious as the hotel she has created. No check in. No "front desk". Just a friendly welcome, a short tour and we were told our room was waiting. Our window overlooked a private garden. The room was eclectic, modern and comfortable. We asked for advice on a simple dinner and when we arrived back at the hotel a hand written note was waiting for us with a reservation. The restaurant was just what we wanted and a short walk away.
Much has been written in other reviews about this small, boutique hotel. I can not improve on what has been said. But, I can agree with all of it. The bed was the most comfortable we had in our 2 week stay in Provence. The shower was divine! But the atmosphere of calm, elegance and warmth can not be overstated. I too felt like I was staying in a friend's house. We shared our breakfast with a charming couple from New Zealand. We did not have time to experience the spa, but we will on our next stay. Laura told us she had learned a new word in English the week before. The word was "gorgeous". It is a good thing she learned it because she should be hearing it often...
Recommend it? Absolutely. It is a standout in a country with many, many outstanding hotels.
