Large and comfortable flat in Aix's city center, very close from the "cours Mirabeau", the Granet museum and the "rue d'Italie" famous for its terraces and food stores. Great views on both sides of the flat. Two large bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, 2 wc and a modern kitchen fully equipped. Parking available in the building, reachable by the elevator.
My guests' comments are the best ways to discover the experience that my apartment can offer. Hope it will convince you !

The space

Refurbished recentely, this 105 square meters flat is on the third floor (with an elevator) of a typical "aixois hotel particulier".

There are two large and confortable bedrooms :
-one with a queen size bed,
-the other with a king size bed or with two single beds,
both with fine linen,

Two bathrooms :
- one with a large shower and toilets linked to one of the bedrooms,
- the other has a bath,

There is also another separate toilet.

There is a large dressing and laundry with a washing machine (detergent provided), an iron and ironing board where you will be pleased to stock your shopping and luggages.

The brand new kitchen (nespresso machine with capsules provided, dish washer, toaster, boiler, rice cooker, magimix robot, bread machine...) has an open window on the living room next to the colorful dining room.

Cable TV, CD and DVD player, Ipod plug, internet wifi, 2 hair driers, bed linen and towels provided.

Should you need any information about restaurants, unusual places to visit, walks, great local vineyards... or cultural events (plenty in summer), I will be pleased to help you so that your stay remains a great memory. I will leave a list of food shops (plus opening hours), restaurants, museum and things to see in the region as well as books and magazines about the region.

Bed linen and towels are provided, as well as basic items to cook (salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, herbs and spices, home made marmelade, honey, coffee and tea) and a bottle of wine !

Hoping to welcome you soon.

Guest access

I can provide you with a parking space for a medium size car such as Renault scenic... (please see picture for the size of the space). It can be reached directly from our elevator, very pleasant after a sunny walking day in Provence ! In that case you will reach the parking from the "avenue Craponne" than you turn right at N°3 in the Impasse Reynaud that is after the avenue Craponne. Please call or text me so that I can come and find you to show you the way.

Mary was a gracious host. The description of the apt is accurate. The location is perfect, half a block away from Route D’Italie where one can find supermarkets, clothing shops, restaurants and cafes, pharmacy, etc. Etc. There is also a supermarket a few steps away from the apt. Building which has everything at good prices. My family and I have stayed in 50+ airbnb in Europe, US, Australia, New Zealand and this one comes high in our list. The apt was everything it was described and more. It is large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Mary thinks of everything to make one feel at home, every possible detail was cared for. The bedrooms are large and had comfortable beds. The master bed has a memory foam, which is a plus. The views from the Master bedroom are great. The kitchen is well equipped. In sum, we enjoyed every moment in Aix and recommend Mary and her apt highly.

Mary is a super host! She is always reachable and will go out of her way to provide anything needed to make a great stay in her apartment. We are a family of 4 and stayed for three weeks in her apartment. The location can't be beat. We highly recommend Mary and her apartment!

The flat is located close to the city centre, in an ancient and picturesque building, and there is plenty of nice objects, pieces of furniture, books and wonderful photos. It is charming, full of personality and makes you feel at home at once. The kitchen is very well equipped (there is even a Nespresso machine with some excellent coffee capsules...), the rooms are large and comfortable, the wifi is blazingly fast and the smart tv set has hundreds of channels and VOD shows for our kids. And Mary, our host, was so kind, discreet but always willing to help with ideas and tourist materials. And, well, we happened to lose the remote control for the parking lot (which meant a lot of trouble to her, because other guests were arriving after us): we felt so ashamed, but Mary kept smiling and was full of understanding and kind words! We could not have wished more for our stay in Aix-en-Provence.

I am very reluctant to put a 4 star for this really is a 5 star apartment. It is one of the nicest apartments we've been in - very spacious and airy with large windows and nice views. It's also very well located - not too far from the local train station(and car rentals), an easy cab/Uber from the TGV station and, most importantly, it is also centrally located close to all the areas you would typically walk to in Aix. The garage spot, while difficult to use with anything bigger than a mid size car, is very helpful to use if you plan day trips. Mary is very responsive and is quick to revert if any help is needed. The kitchen is super well stocked with little things one might need for short stays. So why 4 and not 5 star. I think it's entirely a function of when you go and your tolerance for lack of air conditioning. We unfortunately hit a heat wave with temps over 100F and not having A/C and just two mobile fans meant there was no escape in the apartment from the heat. I think this would be a perfect place when temps are not so high.

Mary's place was very homely. It was clean, quiet and quite a bit bigger than it appears in the photos. The old town starts just across the road, there's a supermarket on the corner, and a bakery 2 minutes walk away. Parking spot was easy to use. Great for the rental car. Mary was a great host. Very communicative, and with some great tips on arrival. I'd highly recommend a stay at Mary's.

If you want to be next to the heart of Aix-en-Provence, and stay in a spacious flat for 4 people, this is the choice for you. Mary left a list of things to do and restaurants which we took advantage of. The Office du Tourisme is not far away - great place to book a walking tour of the old city. Enjoy!

Our group of four very much enjoyed our stay at Mary's apartment. It was very convenient to all of Aix, we only took our car out for field trips further afield. The entire place has a quirky, arty feeling, with ancient windows, tall ceilings and tile floors. Yet the modern conveniences are also there, with everything you need right there in the apartment, or available nearby. Of the five Airbnb listings that we stayed at on this trip, this was our favorite. The bed linens were nice, and we loved having the extra pillows. The beds were also very comfortable. We hope to stay here again, Mary is a superb host.
