**** Large Duplex Penthouse with awesome view / Historical Center

Large duplex penthouse (127m², 1367 sq ft), ideally located in the heart of the Aix-en-Provence historical center, a few steps away from famous plazzas, stores, restaurants, centers of interest of the city, as well as cours Mirabeau. The market takes place in our street on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. After three years of road works, now completed, this location is the best in Aix-en-Provence!

Fourth and fifth floor of a genuine 17th century building, with an elevator (rare in the historic center). Rated four stars ****.

Pascale's sister, Stephanie, lives in Aix and welcomes our guests. She speaks english, is available during the stay should our guest require any advice. She knows Aix-en-Provence very well, having obtained a degree in local architecture, and her advice can be very helpful.

You will first enter the fourth floor: three large, comfortable and quiet bedrooms called « Manon » (queen-size and single beds), « Violetta » (queen-size bed) and « Butterfly » (2 single beds); two bathrooms with walk-in shower, 1 with toilets plus separate toilets. Then you will climb to the bright 5th floor by a lovely spiral staircase. Upstairs, a perfectly equipped open kitchen, a friendly dining room, a cosy sitting room; and – last but not least – a large lounge offering, through wide sliding windows, a breathtaking view onto the roofs of Aix-en-Provence, which will make you feel like hanging above the city. You can even glimpse the Provence Cross at the top of the Saint-Victoire mountain. Perfectly quiet, silent, and absolutely no mosquitoes! The lounge can also be used as an office or as a meeting room.

Entirely renovated in 2018, high standing, perfectly equipped, brand new quality furniture, full air conditioning: combining comfort, style and practicality was our guideline, shared by our architect, during the 4-months renovation work.

The apartment is decorated in the style of a charming house, with a quality bedding and all details that make guests feel comfortable like at home. Of course we also made sure that it is equipped with a full, discreet and efficient air conditioning system, as well as a landline phone and high speed internet everywhere (several WiFi connections and RJ45 in all rooms) necessary for the modern world. Dishwasher, nespresso, coffee machine, traditional & microwave ovens, induction plates, rice cooker; soap shampoo and hairdryer in both bathroom, washing machine, dryer; safe; TV, DVD/Blu-ray player, set-top-box & connected audio-video, sound bar & subwoofer; PS4 game console; Netflix access possible; of course all useful household linen... everything for a very comfortable stay up to 7 guests. DVD & Blu-ray discs, books are freely accessible: exchange with yours!

Cot, baby bath and baby chair available on request.

Breakfast can be ordered for 4€ per person, prepared by the restaurant next door.

Combining art and science, this apartment is finally the perfect mirror of our couple. We welcome you there as our guest.

Pascale and Yves.

About Me
Yves is a computer science security engineer, Pascale is a lyrical singing teacher. They live in Paris (often) and in Aix-en-Provence (as much as possible). Pascale & Yves have acquired the largest apartement in 2018 in order to be their home in a few years. Meanwhile, they share it with their guests while enjoying it themselves each time they can spend a few days in Aix-en-Provence. In 2020, they acquired a smaller nearby appartment, in order to host their family, friends and guests more easily.
