Recently renovated chateau. A private chef and concierge are available. The large pool and pool house and the extensive grounds ensure the choice of touring the surrounding area or simply relaxing is yours.

This was a beautiful villa and the caretakers were lovely. The problems were the owners. They questioned every amount of money I sent them, they were wrong in every case. They wanted all their money wired to them in America from other countries but when it came to returning the security deposit , they sent a cheque through the mail....

Management response:

Client rented the Villa and paid in Australian dollars, we explained that Australian dollars and US dollars were not the same value she then wanted use to collect the fee from the quests she invited. I refused explaining the agreement was between Villa Fontaine and her not her guests. The delay in the return of the deposit was because she...

The villa was beautiful but a little quirky. It was hard to find but once we got our bearings was relatively convenient. It does take a bit of effort to get in and out of Aix but we did get the hang of it. Erwan and Cristal, the concierge, were wonderful and very helpful. The villa was bright and sunny...

Management response:

We are a very private villa, and we like it for obvious reasons. The concierge is always there to direct our guests. The kitchen is well lit if you know...

Upon arrival we were created by our hosts Erwan and his wife Christel who could not have been more gracious throughout our entire stay. The property is stunning and created a once in a lifetime experience for our family and friends. We dinned under the stars, we cooked wood fired pizzas and drank some amazing wines from the private cellar...

About the neighborhood
Within easy reach of Arles or Avignon Villa Fontaine is also well situated for exploring the south of France. West to the salt lagoons and flamingos of the Camargue, east to the wilds of the Gorge of Verdon and pre-Alps (skiing in February), and south to the colourful sophistication's of the Cote d’ Azure, a pleasure to explore in the quiet of winter. The palace of the Popes in Avignon, the Roman Arena of Arles and the tree-lined boulevards of the university city of Aix-en-Provence offer more local surprise and charm as well as quality shopping and a host of Cultural events for example the Aix Music Festival and Opera, Museums and excellent restaurants, The International Photography Meeting in Arles along with its Roman Theatre.
