Historic building, modern apartment in the center of Aix-en-Provence

The short: The property, perched in the center of Aix, has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a fully equipped kitchen and a cozy living room with an office nook. It is close to markets, shops and restaurants. Everything is walkable. In fact, one can arrive at the apartment easily with public transportation from the Marseille-Provence airport or Aix-TVG train station. Enjoy the sweetness of Aix with no car!
The long: Enter the 17th century building and walk up, first a majestic staircase, then a smaller set of stairs, to gather a sense of the passage of years and the hands of the previous inhabitants as, over time, they adapted the space to their epoch. This continues in the apartment [a third-floor walk-up by European counting, no elevator; fitness buffs will love this] where a modern design touch incorporates the vintage windows and shutters, exposed beams, and sloped ceilings into a space where the old and new blend.
We are an academic family and this property is our family home . We raised our franco-american kids in this apartment. They walked to their bilingual school [college Mignet]. We cherish the memories of our years in Aix. The apartment is full of charm and perfectly located for experiencing the sweetness of Aix.
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen [stove-top, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, coffee machine, blender, and much more – even a pop-corn popper!]. The kitchen is an open-concept kitchen [what the French call “une cuisine américaine”] with a 3-seat counter-height bar and a table that opens to seat 8 [at least, depending on your level of “cozy”]. The living room has a big TV and a solid audio set up [bose ®]. The 2 bedrooms have double beds [one queen, one full]. A roll-out twin fouton, brings the number of sleeping spots to 5. The bathroom has a vanity with double sinks and a tub with a shower. Unlike many French homes the toilet is in the bathroom. The apartment has views of the typical facades of Aix and the roof tops. The north-western exposure of the kitchen and living room makes sunset a sweet time of day with that special only-in-Provence pinkish light [not unlike the color of the local rosé]. The rooms face east to catch morning sun.
The apartment is in the center. Forget the car! Once out the door the markets and shops are just around the corner. The selection at the market, from fresh produce to fine cheese and fresh bread, are a treat for the amateur chef. If you're not a chef, you can enjoy the many tiny squares with restaurants [fancy and simple] that offer outside dining all year-round. Spend the day out discovering the city or the hiking trails of the Saint Victoire and come home to a quiet, cozy place.
