The hostess was gracious and very accommodating, with many suggestions for wonderful things to do and see in Provence. Delicious French breakfast every morning with fresh breads and croissants , fruit , jams and jellies and other French breakfast... More

Le Four des Banes is an amazing B&B just outside of Aix. Laurence was a superb hostess. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and beautiful as was the gardens and swimming pool--perfect way to end a long hot day touring around Provence in July. Laurence provided us with great recommendations for our day trips around Provence and evenings in Aix--she... More

Le Four des Banes is wonderful - it is simply the best we had in our whole experience in Aix en Provence. Laurence, the owner, is such a nice person and made us feel we were at home. The room is really comfortable, bed is perfect and bathroom is big. Everything seems to be prepared with such a love that... More

Laurence is the perfect hostess and speaks great English! We stayed 4 nights and the location is less than 10 minutes from Aix, and is quiet and comfortable. Laurence greeted us and oriented us to the beautiful, spacious accommodations, which are comfortable and well appointed. There is air conditioning, comfortable beds and a pool so it made for a relaxing... More

I will first speak about the customer service. In my search to find accommodations in/around Aix, I happened upon Le Four des Banes through a B & B website. I made an inquiry and very shortly thereafter I received a reply from Laurence. Her English is excellent and which made corresponding with her quite painless. She responded to every inquiry... More

We spent five nights at Le Four des Banes in early June 2016. Having visited Aix many times, but only as a day trip from somewhere else, we wanted to spend more time in this most beautiful small city, and we are so glad we stayed with Laurence in her airy, bright b&b just outside the city limits. Our huge... More

I had a lovely 5 night stay with the accommodating 'Laurence' in this property. I was travelling alone with no car. The bus service was frequent and access to public transport into Aix was just at the end of the path. The bus too was very cheap. Laurence was a great host and breakfasts were delicious - the jams -... More

We spent almost the entire month of May at Le Four des Banes and loved every second! The rooms are charming and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds. All have pretty views. The bathrooms are especially impressive - each has a large shower with a rainmaker shower head. Very therapeutic after hiking Mount Victoire or extended shopping in Aix! We also... More

We loved our 3 days in this modern, charming guesthouse. Besides providing a delicious breakfast every day, Laurence was a wealth of information about local tourist sites and even insisted we borrow her book of road maps when our GPS malfunctioned. You will need a car to get around and although there is a local bus which could take you... More
