Lovely 3 bedroom - 2 bath home in peaceful setting, 2 miles from the historic center, lovely environment.

The property is located in one of the loveliest parts of Aix in a peaceful, country setting on the northeastern side of town, which has been protected from development. This is important in a city which has tripled in size in the last 60 years. It has beautiful Provencal vegetation and both a front and back garden. One is able to walk into the heart of town in a little over a half hour (only 2 miles from the Cours Mirabeau, the Champs Elysees of Aix) or take advantage of the bus transportation about 700 meters from the property. And there is a beautiful country walk in the other direction towards a 15th century tower, which also takes about a half hour.
The property consists of a main house occupied much of the year by the owner and a gate house with 2 apartments and a studio all with different levels and separate entrances on different sides of the house. The principal gate house unit (#67062) has a living room, dining room, and kitchen with high ceilings and an open plan. All the rooms are spacious and light, tastefully furnished, completely insulated including double pane windows (important in Europe where energy is expensive), with overhead beams, and Italian tile throughout.
There are 3 spacious, double bedrooms , 1 with two single beds, 1 with a queen-sized bed, and 1 with a double bed (sleeping for 6 people), 2 bathrooms, 1 of them en suite. All have large built-in cupboards. The 2 larger bedrooms have French doors opening on to the back garden. The Kitchen and dining room have French doors leading to the front terrace and garden. There are skylights in the kitchen and living room. The house is equipped with a washing machine, micro-wave, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator-freezer, induction burners, flat-sreen TV, DVD player, and wifi internet connection. Dishes, cookware, and linens are provided. The environment is lovely.

This property is available for professors on sabbatical as well as short term vacation rentals. It is free starting August 15, 2019.
