We had a very nice week in Aix at Frantz's place. From there, we discovered the "Pays d'Aix" and the wonderful region of Lubéron (1 hour aprox. from there). One of the best things the house offers is that you are at the same time in the countryside and just next to the beatiful town of Aix. We used several times the terrace to have breakfast or dinner by enjoying the fresh air and silence you can experience there. We rented a car, so it was very easy to get back home every evening, but be careful with the bottom part of your car because you will take a countrypath. We were told to be careful at night by coming by car because there live neighbours on the groundfloor and some meters away from Frantz's place too.
The room is really beatiful. The picture reflects faithfully how the morning light gets into the room. The bed is so comfortable that it was very hard to get out from it every morning!
Regarding the kitchen, it was modern and well equipped. It was easy to share everything with Frantz. The dining room is also very nice, with a beatiful wooden table. The bathroom always was extremely clean. At last, it is a pity that we didn't stay more time in the also nice living room, as it is very peaceful.
As to Frantz, he was very kind to us. The first day we didn't have the car yet, so he picked us up in the downtown when we arrived early in the morning. We were able to let our luggage and have some rest before he took us again there by car. He also let us a road map which was extremely useful for our trips and lots of touristic information about Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. He also offered us the option to have our clothes washed.
At that days, he was working at home so it was not possible to have long conversations with him. But he had enough patience to let us practise our french. When we were too tired, we changed to Spanish.
Concluding, we higly recommend Frantz's beatiful and comfortable room, as it allows you to enjoy the countryside's peace but at the same time you are close to the town. As we already said, Frantz was very kind to us, but maybe because we always did everything later and he was working we couldn't strike up long conversations with him.
Don't hesitate to visit this place if you want to enjoy a very nice provençal house!
