Reviews

Average rating:
5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 1 user reviews.

We ate out al fresco every day in the pleasant garden, bedrooms were clean as were the bathrooms. Local help available from the owner and her one helper Thibault very relaxing and well positioned for a base to tour from.
Only Provence was on top of the booking and arrangements and could not have asked for anymore help..
We had a terrific time, the locale was central Aix and while parking was tricky , it was not an insurmountable issue provided a central base to travel to Avignon, Nice, Pont du Gard, Arles and Orange

Areas for improvement:
The basement bedroom could be an issue, we decided to double up for three of the group. made things a little tight but worked out.
the single bed in the attic was not good either but we had it moved down to the larger bedroom where they doubled up.

Would you recommend L Aixoise, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family and why/ why not?
I think that L'Axoise is better suited for adults as opposed to families with teens or small children, one area of improvement could be that the TV had some english channels. we decided that we were not in France to watch TV, so we made light of the issue for the kids.

What star rating would you give L Aixoise? (1 is lowest and 5 is the highest) 4.5
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 5
What star rating would you give Chefs/ Tours you experienced? 5++++ Sophie cooked wonderfully meals that everyone enjoyed, no complaints

Any additional, thoughts, comment, suggestions would be welcome :)
We would do this again with Both L'Axoise and Only Provence, no hesitation

Locale

Protected by the Montagne Ste Victoire which rises to 1,011m. Aix is surrounded by a countryside full of authentic Provencal houses and traditional French style gardens. The name Aix comes from the source discovered when the city was founded in 123 BC by the Romans.

Aix was the capital of Provence in the 15th century, Wealthy merchants and local dignitaries helped turn this city into the Florence of Provence as we know it today.

One can find all the beauty of the noble Provence of the17th and 18th centuries: handsome houses of the upper class, private mansions, city squeres bursting with flowers, ancient fountains and shaded narrow streets.

Aix was the inspiration to many of the greatest writers and painters : Guigou, Stendhal, Mistral, Zola, and Cézanne, There is even a special Cezanne tour which one can follow through the streets of Aix stopping at points marked with a C.

As a city of art and culture Aix possesses a wealth of superbe architecture that has been carefully preserved and restored. Walking through the Cours Mirabeau and the Rue Gaston de Saporta one can admire the private mansions with their sculptured doors and windows and the intricate iron work on the balconies. Discerning shoppers choose the elegant boutiques in the quartier Mazarin.

Each summer the International Festival of Lyric Arts and Music unites acclaimed prima donnas and maestros in a fabulous selection of singing and music. The Dance Festival is also world reputed.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV (high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Aix en Provence TGV (3 hours direct) and rent a car. You could plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Aix en Provence to Gare de Lyon, and getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
