L'epicerie - Une chambre en ville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The rooms were very large and the bathroom modern. Breakfast was delicious in the beautiful garden. The location is excellent -- right in the old city but on a quiet side street. The owner went out of his way to stay around to let us in earlier than he usually does which we appreciated very much. It was very nice to have air conditioning since it was quite hot.

One block from the Place des Cardeurs, the heart of Aix en Provence after dusk, we enjoyed the serenity of a country style suite overlooking a beautiful little garden, the perfect compromise between shabby chic furniture and modern amenities like TV and perfect wi-fi. The Epicerie is a very special place made even more special by its host Luc who personalize provencal hospitality.
Very good breakfast and unbelievable decoration!

Room Tip: The suites are the real deal!

We stayed for 7 nights at L'epicerie and ended up testing their three different rooms! They were all wonderful (all had french country shabby chic), my favorite was pain d'epices. Luc (the owner) definitely has put so much into the renovation of the place and also its decoration. Not just these, but he is a really friendly person, very helpful and full of great trip suggestions. I loved his quince gele, the fig and the ananas-coco were also great. Maria (the main helper of Luc), she was quite entertaining too, during our common breakfasts. All the rooms are air conditioned and the hotel is very close to an underground parking structure called Park Cardeurs, 15 euro max/day. The hotel is in the best location in Aix one can imagine, right by a great cafes scene, flower market, grocery market and the town hall. We made daily drives to the towns and hilltop villages around and this was one of my favorite trips. I think we have to go back to Aix and stay at L'epicerie again!

A friendly, quirky bed & breakfast with four individually decorated rooms right in the centre of Aix. In warm weather breakfast is taken in the quiet courtyard garden – and Luc’s home-made fig jam is to die for !!! L’ Epicerie is only half a block from the Forum des Cardeurs – which is full of great little restaurants. Only minutes away is the Saturday Rue Mejanes flower market, and Rue Gaston de Saporta reputedly the best place to shop for genuine locally made souvenirs. We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Homemade breakfast, tea and jams in the morning in a backyard garden of a beautiful french Provencal town -- the jams should not be understated here. Better than nutella (yes, I'm not kidding). Apricot-vanilla, raspberry-chocolate, chestnut -- those are just a teaser, go and be surprised and delighted! Rooms are also beautiful and clean -- and have AC! Great location -- right in the middle of historic Aix-en-Provence. Stop looking and stay here.

I booked the "Vanille" room at L'Epicerie after reading about it in a travel book and seeing such nice reviews on here. We were not disappointed! Aix tends to get pretty hot and after flying in on an early morning flight from the UK and driving from Marseille to Aix we were glad to get into our air-conditioned room. L'Epicerie is decorated very nicely and the garden where you have breakfast with the other guests is very peaceful. Luc is friendly and let us try our French on him, but reverted to English if he felt we were a bit stuck. I'd recommend you look up what the place looks like on Google Street View - Rue de Cancel is a narrow one way street and when the shutters are closed on L'Epicerie you can easily miss it! We had a hire car and there is underground parking in "Forum des Cardeurs" (very close to the B&B) or in the "Pasteur" car park about 5 minutes walk away. Both charge 15 euros to park for 24 hours.

Room Tip: Vanille room is on the back of the building overlooking the garden- we found it nice and quiet. Plu...

We were referred by a friend of L'Epicerie owner (by another B&B which was located 4 blocks away) and we could not be more positively surprised. Lovely decoration, clean, amazing breakfast and wonderful/attentive host(s).

L'Epicerie is well located right in the center however on a nicely quiet street.

A night on this place is worth every cent :)
