Get a taste of French provincial life in this rustic ground-floor bastide, located just outside the center of scenic Aix en Provence in the South of France!
The loft-style studio apartment is known as l’Orangerie (the Greenhouse) for its large windows and open living space. Take advantage of the studio apartment’s modern kitchen, and make yourself comfortable on the double bed or on the sofa. Modern decoration contrasts with the hardwood beams that line the ceiling.
The loft apartment has a private entrance and looks onto a landscaped garden to the south through double glazed windows. You’ll love relaxing in the private garden, equipped with lawn furniture. A washing machine and a drying rack are in place in the utility room. Parking space is also available.
Located on the Traverse des Dominicaines just outside the old town of Aix en Provence, this is a great location for exploring by foot or by car. Check out these local favorites:
Aix en Provence is the home base for more Provence adventures, located just 81.2km/50.5mi from Avignon and 32.1km/20mi from the bustling city of Marseille and its Mediterranean beaches. Getting here is easy from the La Provençale highway (A8), the Marseille-Provence Airport (26.5km/16.5mi) or the TGV High Speed Train Station (16.4km/12.2mi).

The hosts were very kind and helpful. I want to give the apartment five stars just for there kindness but unfortunately there were a few major flaws with the apartment. First, due to the apartment building being an old orangery the temperature inside of the apartment was extremely difficult to deal with: in the summer (thanks to the clay roof) it was like an oven inside. And due to the property being in a "private garden" we were unable to open the windows without an massive amount of mosquitoes infiltrating--and easily breeding and feeding inside the apartment. Okay, so it was very hot. There is an air-conditiong system in the unit which was a life saver in the summer; but using the AC was extremely expensive. Next, the autumn was pleasant enough but as the weather grey colder so did the orangery. Thanks to its massive windows (which give it great lighting) it was freezing inside the orangery. The floor material was a kind slate, making the floor very cold. The AC system also doubled as a heating system; however, because the system was located high up on the wall--near the roof--and heat rises, it never really got warm inside without leaving the heating on 24/7, which once again was extremely expensive to do. The only other big issue was the dust. We swept and cleaned daily trying to keep the place clean, but there was always more dust. Unfortunately, I turned out to be allergic to some aspect in the dust, which is not an issue for me back home, so I spent a lot of time being itchy.
