Our second visit to this lovely ,very comfortable apartment, a real home from home.If you want to experience Aix en Provence living like a local this is just the place, right in the centre of the old town with lots to explore from your doorstep. Aix has so much of interest to offer from it's many varied fountains, galleries and museums, and architecture not to mention all the shops, cafes and restaurants! It also has good transport links particularly with Marseille which we visited 3 times during our stay, with buses every 10 minutes. Don't miss the port area with it's amazing buildings and museums, although it's always nice to return to the relative
calm and familiarity of Aix. A good base to stay in.
Many thanks again to Brigitte and Ralf for providing a wonderful place to stay and their great hospitality.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the apartment in Aix en Provence. Bridgitt and her husband met us there and gave us helpful tips and suggestions. They also provided a helpful guide they put together with everything you need to know while staying there. It is up 3 flights of stairs, but thankful for them especially after eating all the pastries!
The apartment was very clean and so comfortable. I was so happy it had a big bath tub. I love to cook and the kitchen was fabulous to make meals in. There is a farmers market. Everyday! Steps away. And a huge one on Saturdays. Absolutely glorious!!! Stay here if you can. I would totally stay here again. Great location. Right in the city center.
We stayed in this charming old apartment for seven nights and loved it. Brigitte, the owner was very helpful and showed us around, also helped to bring our heavy cases up the three and a bit flights of stairs to her place on the second floor. The location was brilliant, you just stepped out the big wooden door onto the cobblestone street below and within no more than two minutes you were sitting down at one of the numerous bars, bistros or eating places awaiting your Le Petit Dejeuner! Lovely!! The information centre is an easy ten minutes walk and that is where most of the half day and full day tours leave from. The only small minus for us was that my eighty year old husband had knee problems and it made getting up and down the stairs once or twice daily a bit of a mission. However, I don’t think it would stop us from staying there again, if we are lucky enough to visit that lovely area.
This fantastic apartment has everything you need for a great stay in Aix en Provence. It is in the old part of town, a wonderful position for exploring this so interesting and varied place. The apartment retains a lot of its character of an old building yet is stylish and very comfortable , especially the bed and sofa. The kitchen is very well equipped for all your needs.Although situated on a busy thoroughfare once inside the apartment it is a peaceful haven to relax after a busy day sightseeing.
Brigitte and her husband were great hosts -we enjoyed the wine, thank you -and all aspects of booking etc have been without a hitch.We would love to stay here again if we returned to Aix en Provence.
My wife and I have ataques in many holiday rental apartments in Europe over the years, but Brigitte's place in Aix-en-Provence has been the best. It is located right in the centre of the old town, a few steps from the daily market, and shops for all your daily needs are right at hand.
The restaurants in Forum des Cardeurs are right around the corner and Cours Mirabeau is a few minutes' walk down the hill.
The cultural life of Aix is rich, with several museums in the lower town and the Grand Theatre de Provence also easily accessible. 15 minutes' walk up the hill is Cezanne's workshop.
The apartment itself is charmingly decorated and fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Brigitte welcomed us kindly and showed us around and was generous with advice.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of a holiday in Aix. In our opinion the rental, during a busy Easter holiday period, was very reasonable.
We were met by the owners who were delightful and very helpful. We found the apartment
to be comfortable, clean and well appointed. Its location was in the heart of town and close
to everything - restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, various weekly markets and transportation. If we are fortunate enough to return to Aix en Provence we would most definitely stay here.
