Spending a week in Aix is already a great thing - the food, the sunny late August weather, the music - but this second floor apartment makes it even better. It's clean, clean, clean, with large rooms, excellent closet space, a comfortable large bed and a nice view overlooking the garden. It had been a terribly dry summer in southern France, but the care taken in the garden was evident.The kitchen was more than adequate, with plenty of dishes/pots/utensils, and some basic cleaning supplies. Former residents had left items like tea and crackers. We left some too in appreciation. It's nice to have something in the cupbaord when you get there after a long trip. Ms. Ducros is a gracious woman who was very helpful and understanding. Our rudimentary French was not a problem as she welcomed us to the apartment and then guided us to the secure garage at the back of the property for our car. Just one warning if you drive - the streets are busy, often one-way, and it is difficult to find the apartment building without a good map pf the town. Directions on google map are not adequate!! We hope to return soon.
