Renovated 3 Bedroom Medieval House at the foot of Mt. Ste. Victoire near Aix en Provence

Puyloubier is the perfect base to explore Provence and the Cote D'Azur. Our house is less than an hour from beaches and seaside villages, 20 min. from the beautiful cultural hub of Aix en Provence, close to countless vineyards, hilltop villages and hiking trails and cycling routes, and 40 minutes from the lively metropolis of Marseille. It benefits from the spectacular scenery and quiet atmosphere of a village on the side of one of the most picturesque mountains in France, without sacrificing access to cultural, outdoors, gastronomic and other attractions.

Nestled at the foot of Mont. Ste. Victoire, a quick 20 kilometre bus ride east of Aix-en-Provence is the picturesque village of Puyloubier. It is just large enough to sustain a grocery store, primary school, post office, cafe, restaurant, bakery, and variety store, and is home to the award-winning local Cave Cooperative, selling wonderful and very inexpensive wine. From the house, visitors can walk up the mountain immortalized in the paintings of Paul Cezanne.

The two Non-Smoking houses (Pierre Jacquemet and Rue de la Paix) are traditional 'maisons de village' and the foundations date back to medieval times. The two houses are next door to each other and both are private and lockable, with a shared terrasse in between. The interior of the houses combines traditional style with modern amenities. Each comprises four rooms and two bathrooms: the updated kitchen/dining room and renovated bathroom (with a shower but no tub) downstairs, and the second bathroom, the master bedroom with a queen bed and second bedroom with a double bed, as well as our den with a sofabed and large terrace upstairs. There is an additional single bed in the second bedroom (Pierre Jacquemet) /study (Rue de la Paix). Each house sleeps five comfortably, 7 in a pinch. The main room features a dishwasher, clothes washer, kitchen counter, dining room table, six chairs and easy chairs. A modern gas stove and North American-style refrigerator complete this room. The stone sink in the Pierre Jacquemet house and the master bedroom in the Rue de la Paix house are centuries old!

Puyloubier is surrounded by vineyards producing award winning wine, and is close to amenities of every kind, from Mediterranean Beaches to the cultural, market and shopping activities in many picturesque villages nearby, Aix en Provence and Nice. The region is rich in cultural and outdoors activities, hosting many galleries, music festivals and theatres, as well as being a centre for hiking, mountaineering, cycling, and swimming. Historical and religious sites of interest abound locally, but perhaps most arresting are the beautiful landscapes which have attracted artists from Van Gogh and Picasso to the Canadian Group of Seven, who stayed in a house a few miles away.

About Me
I teach environmental studies at the University of Toronto and our home near Aix en Provence has been in the family for 30 years. As a teenager, I spent a year nearby when my father went on sabbatical and have loved the area ever since.
