My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of September. Our first challenge was to find a parking space as these are at a premium in Aix. Fortunately, there is a large underground car park in the adjacent square to l'Epicerie, where you can leave your car for 15 euros per day.
We stayed in room 'Vanilla', a lovely double room that overlooked the back garden. It came with air-con (not that we needed this), and a great en-suite that has the best shower that I have had in ages! It's like being in a waterfall. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable (if you like firm beds). Our room also came with a TV, and guests can also access Luc's WiFi. We couldn't get a very strong signal in our room, but it was good enough to do the simple things we needed to on our laptop.
L'Epicerie is in a superb location. Situated on a very quiet street, it is just off a square that accommodates around 12 restaurants, and a couple of minutes walk from the Hotel du Ville, and 5 mins walk from the Mirabau.
Breakfasts were the highlight. Taken around a large communal table underneath the awning in the garden, they are a good way of meeting the other guests. Luc prepares different local dishes every day, washed down with coffee or a large array of teas, and accompanied by the ubiquitous baguette, and amazing home made jams (melon, peach, apricot, strawberry, mango, raspberry, grape). For our first breakfast we had a waffles with jam and cream, followed by Brouillade, a local dish. (eggs, emmental cheese and balsamic vinegar). On the second morning we had some wonderful crepes.
We had a wonderful stay with Luc at l'Epicerie. The food was marvellous, the conversation was interesting, and the room was clean, comfortable and with an amazing shower! If we return to Aix we would stay here again, and will certainly recommend to our friends! It's also great value for Provence!
