About Me
I was born in France and live in Canada.This apartment is where my French roots are:a block away from what used to be my grandmother's house, and two blocks away from Collège Mignet where my father went to school. I live and work in Canada (Vancouver and Montreal) as a lecturer and writer. I am a former reporter for national TV news (politics, economics and international affairs)and go back to France several times a year to my house in the countryside The apartment was renovated for my son and his family, who lived and worked in Aix for 2 years. It is located on campus, walking distance to everything, perfect for a sabbatical and for a small family.

This large bright elegant apartment has two bedrooms plus an office and is truly in the heart of Aix-en-Provence. It is wonderful! The location, the French charm, large kitchen, and amenities are fantastic.. It is located directly across from the sweet Parc Jourdan and only minutes away from an authentic and delicious boulangerie and the historical old town. You can’t ask for more convenience. There are several bus routes right outside the door making travel around town very easy. It is walking distance to the TGV/airport bus and local rail station. The apartment is quiet and has modern technology: wifi, cable, washer, printer and dishwasher. The owner of the house is lovely and very responsive. She is bilingual in both English and French which made our communication very easy. You will be fortunate if you are able to live here. C’est magnificent!
