-----NEIGHBORHOOD AND APARTMENT-----
The apartment is located on the last floor of a former hôtel particulier, which were the luxury mansions or townhouses where local aristocracy was living in the XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries.
It is located in the heart of Aix en Provence’s historic neighborhood, Le Quartier Mazarin, where are situated most of Aix's hôtels particuliers.
Although the apartment is four centuries old, it is totally restored and equipped with all what modern comfort can offer.
You will be at walking distance from many sites of touristic interest, such as Museum Granet (2 minutes walking), Cours Mirabeau (30 sec)..., and from all amenities (supermarket, shopping boutiques, bus station, train station, restaurants, car parks, bars, museums, expositions...).
As you can see on the map, the apartment is situated right in the center of the city :-)
It is a very safe and calm neighborhood, but minutes away from bars and clubs frequented by the student crowd.
The apartment is situated in the 3rd floor without elevator, which can sometimes be difficult if you have a lot of luggage. That's part of the charm of old buildings...
The bedroom is 30m² with a spacious private bathroom and toilet.
It is totally separated from the rest of the apartment so you will have all the intimacy you need.
There are two windows (which have now double glazing) looking onto a typical street form Aix. You will see from the windows Le Cours Mirabeau on the left, the most famous avenue of the city, where passers-by like to languish on café terraces, and la Fontaine des Quatre Dauphins on the right, the most beautiful fountain of the city.
The bathroom is equipped with a sink, a large bathtub and a toilet.
