This elegant, 18th century three-storey Aix-en-Provence vacation home is set within beautiful, formal gardens just 10 minutes walk from the heart of Aix-en-Provence. The classic tree-lined boulevards and cascading fountains for which Aix is known are reflected within these wonderful, private grounds. The villa, although completely refurbished, retains its authenticity through the use of fine antique furnishings and traditional décor.
Aix-en-Provence is one of France' s most beautiful university cities with a wealth of museums, art galleries, shops, and Michelin-star restaurants, as well as a fascinating old town.
