Aix-en-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France
The property is located in one of the loveliest parts of Aix in a peaceful, country setting in 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.
