Despite the rainy weekend, we had a lovely warm stay at Aline's.
"La Maison de Carlotta" is a charming, cozy place located at the central part of the town,
in the heart of the Mazarin district, neighboring an even older historic district up-north.
Aline gave us an insightful and an interesting history of the place, including the relationship between her house and the Cezanne family. She also knows the region, its products and the spots in the neighborhood, not to be missed!
The local aperitif, accompanied with "tapenade" (mashed olives, plus Aline's secret) was an excellent ice-breaker with other guests. She has talent to make people feel at ease.
The rooms are decorated with ancient furniture, with taste.
At breakfast, the large round table could hardly contain all the home-made products, and the conversation with Aline resumes (her command of English is quite good!).
Yes, due to both Aline's generosity, and the richness of the place, we spent an unforgettable week-end, and we are eager to stay there again. Edith and Philippe
