Property Description

Spectacular 18th century Bastide. Great shopping, dining and culture minutes away in downtown Aix but the feeling of life in an authentic Provencal estate with beautiful views of the countryside and absolutely no neighbors in site is life changing.

This property consists of the "maison principal" built in 1803 with 2 foot thick walls, tall ceilings, ancient flooring, original doors, windows and shutters. It is a truly an authentic Provencal bastide, facing due south with 3 floors of occupancy. The ceiling heights are 10 ft plus and the proportion of the rooms are perfect.

The estate includes all the North American touches which will make your stay much easier and much, much more comfortable. American pillow-top mattresses, down pillows and duvets, 100% cotton sheets, flat screen TV's (2) and wireless internet. Bathrooms are basic, very functional, and for the most part, original. The property is supplied with great water pressure and abundant hot water (new water heater 2008).

The property is quiet and very private.

15 minutes to TGV and 25 to Marginane (Marseilles) International Airport. Direct access of to the house is via a very very small gravel road which terminates approximately 300 meters after the property. This creates a very private entry with little traffic.

Gorgeous Bastide Circa 1803 in Aix-en-Provence

Chemin des Saints Peres

Location Type: Town

The owner advises that a car is required for this location.

Location Information

Our "monument" is the Provencial countryside. From some parts of the property, one can see the famous mountain called the "St. Victoire" which was painted literally hundreds of times by Cezanne. The view is extremely peaceful and one feels miles from the daily markets. Exactly 4.5 kilometers from our driveway, one is in the center of Aix-en-Provence. Our bastide is authentic and was rumored to be owned by "Mirabeau" of the Cours Mirabeau, the famous main boulevard in the Centre Ville D'Aix.
