“Great Provence experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Had trouble locating the place on the street,as you drive up the hill look for a 50 km sign on your left and on the right is the Villa yellow and behind closed gates.
The accommodation is superb along with the hosts and the breakfast room is separate and you can meet all the other guests in the morning for breakfast.
Aix En Provence centre is a 8 min car ride away and the Villa is central to a lot of the areas of Provence such as Cassis and in the other direction Avignon.
Breakfast is crepes,fresh figs and yogurt with lovely French Bread and Jam with a nice coffee or tea,you will not be disappointed.
My wife and myself liked it so much we are going back there in September 2013 as there is a lot more of Provence we want to discover........you will enjoy this B and B and the Southern area of France.

Room Tip: The main road to the villa is quiet so there is no traffic noise and you will sleep well after drink...

Villa Valbelle is just a few minutes drive from Aix-in-Provence. It's very easy to drive to a parking lot just outside the city and walk five minutes to Cours Mirabeau, a beautiful tree lined avenue filled with wonderful restaurants, and interesting neighborhoods to explore. Cathy and Jacque are the perfect host and hostess...friendly, charming, and very knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast, including homemade crepes and breads, is served in a lovely little detached kitchen. The grounds are lovely and include a swimming pool for a refreshing dip after a day of sightseeing.

We had a wonderful time staying with Cathy and Jacques at Villa Valbelle. Cathy's breakfast was wonderful and staying so close to everything we wanted to see in the area was a big plus. We were also able to cook two meals for ourselves, but watch out for the dog Espellette with the pate and chicken! Both Cathy and Jacques speak excellent english, and I found out Jacques is an air traffic controller, just like me! We will stay again with them when we return to the area. Can't wait to return to Villa Valbelle.

Room Tip: Choose the large room as you can cook for yourself and it has a nice table for 4 people to eat aroun...

Villa Valbelle provided us with all the charm and ambiance that we could have hoped for while staying in Provence! There is a secure gate to the yard and space to park a car. The location is very close to all the amenities of the larger city, but has a peaceful garden. We stayed in the room Alizee- it was spotless and had fresh furnishings and a lovely bathroom. The hostess was called away for the weekend and her two daughters did an outstanding job taking over the duties. The younger girl welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The older girl cooked fresh crepes each morning for breakfast, as well as serving homemade sweet bread, crusty bread, jams, coffee, fresh yogurt, orange juice. She will surely follow in her parent's footsteps and run an inn! There is a kitchenette available for the guests, with a small fridge, microwave, hot plate, etc. and all the necessary dishes. It is possible to make a meal for yourself here. We found this B & B to be so relaxing, as we sat in the garden in the shade, and would recommend it to anyone with a car.

Room Tip: Our GPS directed us to the wrong side of the street, so we were a little confused to find the correc...

During our stay our rented car broke down, the help and support from both Cathy and Jacques was really extra ordinary! they where on the phone for hours and saved us from a big hassle. the room was perfect, and the overall hospitality superb. with a car it is a 7min drive to the center, most convenient.

Villa Valbelle is a small family-run B&B outside of Aix-en-Provence. Once we got there (it was a little tricky to find the right driveway at first) and settled in, we found it to be comfortable, and the owners are very nice, making you feel right at home. The room had all of the amenities. We didn't want to eat out for every meal (aside from breakfast which is served right there), so we went to a nearby market and made meals in our room.

The location is very good, and the value is excellent. Just one note--have cash ready for checkout. That was the easiest way to settle up. But with the low price, we needed no more cash than what we normally carried around for day-to-day spending money to settle our bill.

We feel very fortunate to have chosen this b & b, not only for it's beautiful garden and surroundings, but because my wife was ill during our entire visit, the innkeeper, who is a nurse, took excellent care to nurse her back to some semblance of health. One couldn't have expected such service and kindness.
