Heart of Town, Cours Mirabeau: a Delightful Urban Experience!

Located in: Aix en Provence
If you're thinking about spending an extended amount of time in Provence, and you enjoy the urban life, you’ll love spending time in this wonderfully situated apartment in the heart of Aix-en-Provence, the quintessential Provencal town. If you like to be able to walk out the door and grab a newspaper, order a coffee at a café and watch the passers-by; if you find pleasure in museums, bustling markets, and the occasional spontaneous street band; if you appreciate evening concerts and indulgences at a Roman spa, then this delightful apartment on the Cours Mirabeau is for you. The apartment is nestled in a newly constructed complex on the Cours and yet is surprisingly quiet, as the unit itself is in fact located on the street behind and parallel to the Cours. The Cours Mirabeau is the center of the town, the main axis and its focal point. Replete with restaurants, bookstores, specialty shops and ice cream parlors, the Cours divides the quartier Mazarin from the old town. Although you’re in the heart of town, you're guaranteed quiet, privacy and an amazing night's sleep, yet walk out the door, and bingo, you're in the thick of it.

This charming apartment (75 sq mt) is perfect for a sabbatical year. It boasts a private outdoor terrace of 57 m2 with a small garden and table & chairs, a private entrance, two bedrooms (sleeps three total) with ample storage space, a living room/dining area, a totally modern kitchen, a full bathroom with tub and separate toilet. Air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter, complete with Provençal colors and plush bed linens, equipped with all modern conveniences (microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD player, radio/CD/stereo with iPod docking station, Bose speaker, cable television in several languages, hair dryer, iron, free wifi connection, free telephone calls to all of Europe, the US and Canada), you'll feel like a native with all the conveniences of home. Its ideal location affords walking distance to all the boutiques and restaurants, the old town, shops and open-air markets. And if you’re thinking about exploring the nearby stunning countryside, a designated space at no extra fee in the on-site garage facilitates the parking of a car.

The Aixois like nothing better in the afternoons than to “flâner” (stroll) up and down the Cours, have a drink at a café and chat with their friends. You can join them and feel like a native by just by walking out the door. The Monoprix supermarket is down the street; bring the rolling cart with you to put your groceries in like everyone else in the neighborhood. The nearby rue d’Italie is filled with shops and boutiques of all kinds, so convenient for shopping for the apartment. You can walk to the daily marchés, as there is one every day in Aix and on some days there are two; there is no shortage of marvelous Provençal vegetables, flowers, and specialty products to tantalize your taste buds. The Granet Museum, one of the best in Provence, is two blocks away, and the gorgeous Saint Victoire Mountain (Cezanne's favorite!) is a short 15-min drive.

Aix-en-Provence is renowned for its music and lyric arts festival in June-July every year, and in August the nearby town of La Roque d’Antéron hosts an internationally acclaimed piano festival. During the year one can take any number of French classes for foreigners, many located within a short walk of the apartment. A state-of-the-art spa--a short 10-minute walk from the apartment--built on the authentic ruins of the former Roman spa, offers delightful cures, massages, water aerobics, and all sorts of relaxation for your aches and pains, and a new spa location has just opened up a block from the apartment on the rue Mazarine.

Have a wonderful sojourn, however long or short, in this well-appointed apartment; it's designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We'll be happy to furnish letters from satisfied guests who have offered to serve as references.
