Image of Villa Cézanne from outside by the pool Villa Cézanne welcomes guests with a lit pool, candles, and a warm interior at dusk.

Named for the grandfather of Post-Impressionism, Paul Cézanne, this luxurious four bedroom villa outside Aix en Provence takes its design cues from the modern art that the painter’s work inspired. With unique modernist furniture, sleeping space for the whole family and a beautiful poolside terrace outside, this Provençal villa is a dream come true!

The Great Room

The heart of any home is its hearth. Gathered around the sleek fireplace in the living room of this villa, you’ll find space for the whole family to come together and relax! Tasteful wooden and black cloth armchairs, a long contemporary-style sofa and a faux fur rug beneath it all create a unique common area at the core of the villa. An enormous flat-screen TV provides entertainment.

The double-height ceilings add even more grandeur to the space, with light-toned exposed beams above the wooden dining table for eight. Lots of natural light floods in through the wall-to-wall bay window facing the pool and terrace, allowing communication between the inside and outside of the house.

The Kitchen

Far from the open hearths once used in preparing traditional Provençal cuisine, the cooking space in this rental is state-of-the-art! After entering through the doorway from the dining area, you’ll find a breakfast table with four chairs surrounded by an L-shaped counter space. The white of the cabinets contrasts with warm natural wood tones on the countertops, complemented by the brushed aluminum and stainless steel appliances.

Stacked one above the other, a full oven and a microwave open up cooking possibilities. The stovetop is electric, with a minimalist hood above for ventilation purposes and a window by the coffeemaker providing natural light. A blender, electric kettle and toaster complete the appliance options, so you’ll have no trouble finding the right tools for the job, no matter what you’re cooking!

Sleeping accommodations

With one full bathroom, three French-style salles d’eau and one separate WC, there’ll never be a line for the bathroom during your stay at this villa! Downstairs, bathroom 1, connected to one of the bedrooms, offers a WC, a tub with a handheld shower attachment, and a large mirror. Bathrooms 2 and 3 are located upstairs and are open to the villa’s exposed wooden rafters, contrasting with their gleaming white tubs. Bathroom 4 has a rainfall-style shower open to the rest of the bathroom, as well as two sinks, perfect for couples! Bathroom 5 is a separate WC with a washer and dryer for your convenience.

It isn’t just swanky interior amenities and creature comforts that make the Villa Cézanne a great choice for a stay in the South of France – the terrace and pool outside are to die for! A dining table for eight lets you enjoy your meals en plein air, soaking up the warm Provençal sun during the day or enjoying cool breezes in the evenings. A gas grill makes cooking Provençal cuisine outdoors a fun experience for the whole family! Head to one of our favorite Provence markets to stock up on fresh ingredients.

Then there are, of course, the enticing turquoise waters of the pool, with steps leading down from the patio into the refreshing waters. Work on your tan or enjoy a nice book in the lounge chairs poolside. Thanks to the underwater lighting lining the sides of the pool, you can even swim after dark, a great after dinner activity for the family to enjoy!
