     Description 


In the heart of Aix en Provence's ancient quartier of Cathedral Saint Saveur, this extraordinary
apartment in a grand home from the beginning of the 18th century will enchant you with its charming
elegance. Remarkably quiet and private, overlooking the stately courtyard of the Hôtel de Fontvert,
which is on the official list of France's historic buildings, Ambiance d'Aix is a small piece of
paradise in the historic center. You will instantly note its distinctive 12 foot high ceilings, tall
arched windows, and original hexagonal 'tomette' floor tiles, gleaming with centuries of gentle
care. The apartment is beautifully decorated with French antiques and quality furnishings combining
the spirit of the period with contemporary comfort and modern conveniences such as microwave oven,
cable television, iPod/CD players, and high speed internet.

This extraordinary 58 square meter (600 square feet) apartment on the second floor (first floor
European) accommodates up to four people and consists of:
a welcoming entry hall with interphone entry system to the building
a spacious living/dining room with its high ceilings and walls adorned with intricate original
gypserie plaster moldings with figures and ribbon designs - with views to a neighbor's large, quiet,
and sunny courtyard below.For news and entertainment, there is a Sony flat-screen high definition TV
with French, German, English, and other language channels and a CD/iPod/iPhone player with radio.
The dining table comfortably seats six people.
a breath-takingly romantic bedroom with pillow-top queen size bed covered with quality linens and
topped with a French Ciel du Lit flowing with sheer draperies. An inviting recamier (chaise longue)
beside the tall windows overlooks the neighbor's courtyard below
a well-equipped kitchen, newly renovated (recently), where you'll delight in preparing meals from
fresh ingredients gathered at the many local markets nearby
a two-level bathroom with a spacious shower on mezzanine level 8 steps up
a second bedroom/study with a closet and couch that converts to a very comfortable queen size bed
with upgraded mattress
wireless Internet access throughout the apartment with IPod/iPhone docking stations in both the
living room and the main bedroom's radio alarm clock

Tastefully decorated and distinctively furnished with a combination of both contemporary and antique
pieces, the apartment's spacious rooms and windows open to either a neighbor's private courtyard
below or a quiet lane. All the rooms are wonderfully light and sunny.

The apartment has central thermostatically controlled heating for the cooler months, and stays warm
in winter with its thick stone walls . For the warm months, there is good ventilation with through
drafts as it has double exposure. Although we would not consider living without air conditioning in
our Virginia home, we are completely comfortable in our Aix apartment even in the height of summer.
In fact, we're surprised to find how warm it is when we walk outside!

     Attractions 


The location of Ambiance d'Aix is superb for classical concerts, opera, and markets. In the original
Roman part of Aix, the pedestrian Cathedral Saint Saveur quartier is only blocks from the colorful
market squares of Aix and the flowers on Place de l'Hôtel de Ville and the abundant and delicious
produce of Place Richelme. Ten meters down our narrow lane is the beautiful Place des Martyrs de la
Resistance, formerly the Place de l'Archeveché, a perfect place to sit by the fountain and enjoy a
glass of rosé, and the center of Aix's Lyric Festival, the former Palais de l'Archveché
(Archbishop). On this square is the Museum of Tapisseries, and around the corner is the Museum of
Old Aix. Thousands of years of history - from Renaissance to Medieval to Roman and beyond -
overflowing with architectural masterpieces, Aix en Provence offers today's visitors the opportunity
to explore winding, cobbled streets, visit stunning old buildings, appreciate the museums and
galleries, scour the markets, absorb the plentiful musical productions and dine in its many
delightful and colorful restaurants and cafes. The surrounding countryside offers the undulating
hills of Provence where Paul Cezanne, Emile Zola, Marcel Pagnol and Fredric Mistral lived and drew
inspiration. Beautiful views from hilltop medieval villages of the Luberon, acres and acres of vines
and olive groves, fruit orchards, and lavender fields, all contribute to tantalizing the senses in
every respect. With the Mediterranean's Cote d'Azur close by, the coastal resorts of Cassis,
Marseille (20 minutes), Cannes, St. Tropez, along with many lesser known but equally delightful
beaches, are enticing. Throughout the seasons, Ambiance d'Aix is an ideal starting point for
discovering the diversity and richness of the South of France - a haven of peace, conducive to
dreaming, meditation, and rest welcomes you at the end of a day filled with impressions of Provence.



 

     Rates 



This charming property is ideal for up to four people, but not for small children. But because it is located on the second floor (first floor European) without an elevator, it regrettably cannot accommodate wheelchairs. The weekly rate ranges from 890 to 1290 euros, depending on the season, and can be paid in euros by bank transfer or in dollars at current exchange rate via paypal or check. Bookings can be arranged via email. A 350 euro refundable security deposit is required. Prices include electricity, heating, gas, linens, and towels and before-and-after cleaning.
