A special thanks to owner and his gracious mother for a wonderful stay in Aix. This apartments was comfortable, large, clean, well maintained, and conveniently located in old town Aix. It is very quiet as it faces the roofs of all the other buildings that surround it. It is located on the third floor so requires climbing two sets of semi circular stairs. (His mother certainly had no problem climbing them. She graciously insisted on helping us carry our bags up and down.) It had all that we needed and is part of what made our stay in Aix so memorable. (The pictures very accurately represent the apartment.)
The apartment is located just 5 minutes from the Cour Maribeau, the main street in Aix. Nothing is more than a 15 minute walk. There are restaurants, boulangeries, pâtisseries, pizza places, crêpe making establishment, ice cream and glacée locations, mini markets as well as a Monoprix (a store and market). There high end stores as well all others located on the bottlom level of many of the buildings. It is located in the oldest part of old town, so there lovely narrow streets and little traffic. The historic sites are right in the middle of it all. The tourist office, a seven minute walk from the apartment, offers to two tours of Aix, but sadly both are on market days. There is a large multi-locational market on Saturday morning. They also have information about tours around Provence, but we didn't want to leave Aix.
We spent 5 wonderful days in Aix and never left the old town. (There is no need for a car.) The Diabline will drive you around the old town, buses will take you around the newer part of the city, and tours, trains and buses and will take you elsewhere. It is a town that I would love to return to and this apartment is where I would want to stay.
