IN JUNE-JULY-AUGUST-SEPTEMBER, MINIMUM STAY 4 NITES. There is so much to do and see in this city and surroundings...

Loft style apartment, one bedroom , A/C , in the historical centre of Aix-en-Provence, on 3rd and last floor of an ancient building with a private parking, 100 m from flat. IDEAL FOR A COUPLE !

Within seconds walk of what makes life in Aix-en-Provence so special : cafés with sunny terrasses on Cours Mirabeau, myriads of restaurants (French, Greek, Japanese, Indian, etc...) at the footstep of the flat, : cinemas,concert hall, supermarkets, pharmacies, theatres, elegant shops, and ...daily Provencal farmers' market for fresh fruits, vegies, cheese, honey, flowers, etc...

This flat has character and charm but it is on the "unconventionnal" side with split levels in the living area in a loft arrangement and high ceilings in living room. HENCE IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN FOR SAFETY REASON.

Ideal for a couple, the apartment has one double bedroom, with a double bed, cupboards and desk, a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area (loft style, with A/C) with sitting, dining and study areas, and a flowery terrace, equipped with table and chairs. A second bedroom / study is available, for storage of suitcases, ironing board and eventually, for a third visiting adult to spend a couple of nights (single bed).

Bright, clear and calm..., very calm.... as it overlooks a courtyard. Quiet street and safe environment. In the epicenter of Aix-en-Provence!

The private parking space, 2' walk away, is invaluable as parking in Aix is expensive and scarce... and the quiet street alllows to load and unload the car, if needed, by temporarily parking at my building footstep.

- Micro wave / Kettle / Toaster /

From Aix, you will be able to reach Marseille (30 km), European Capital of Culture in 2013, by train or coach (1€50 for over 65 years old ), a stunning town, picturesque and highly cultural, but also the French Riviera (Cannes, Monaco, Nice) within an hour 1/2 drive. Also the Camargue for wild nature and bird watching, the seaside with beaches and spectacular cliffs (Cassis), the cedar forest of the Luberon. Within 30 min. drive, also, not to be missed, Avignon, once the capital of Popes and Arles the Roman marvel.

Also, five minutes walk from Coach Station (shuttle to TGV station & airport) and Aix Train Station. 30 meters from city public transport hub and Taxi station.
