This is the place for an exotic and luxurious experience of provençal living. The combination of the scents and flavours of Provence with a Bali-inspired setting make this villa quite unique. There is a water theme throughout, with indoor and outdoor pools, fountains and lakes. The beautiful town of Aix-en-Provence is only 9km away.
Villa Balinaise is a beautiful contemporary villa located close to the centre of Aix-en-Provence (9km) built by an associate of the French architect Jean Nouvel, in the elegant area of St-Marc-Jaumegarde.

The Montagne Sainte Victoire (10km) has inspired many artists: Cézanne, Picasso, Kandinsky, and is a very popular place for walking and climbing. There are many theme parks for children around Aix such as Aquacity, OK Corral, the Zoo de la Barden. The peaks of the La Croix de Provence on the Montagne Sainte Victoire (altitude 946m) command fantastic views and are reached via a famous "Sentier des Venturiers" which runs between Aix and Vauvenargues. The Pic des Mouches (altitude 1011m) and La Chapelle de St-Ser offer some of the most beautiful panoramas of Provence (12 and 26km away).
