Terraces of lavender, wisteria-covered pergolas, breakfasts beneath mulberry trees… Provençal living at its finest. Views from the 20th-century villa – from pool or private patio – over lawns and cypresses are uninterrupted. Rooms, with separate entrances, are furnished in country style; fresh, uncluttered, with tiled floors, white quilts and splashes of colour. Choose Marius for space, Cesar for intimacy, Fanny for romance; Manon has a its own terrace. Find quiet corners for an evening apéro, a summer kitchen for simple suppers. Stroll to Aix’s museums, markets and restaurants; warmly efficient Sophie will advise.
