If you enjoy the delights of a celebrated Provençal city, then search no further. From this one-bedroom apartment in Aix-en-Provence, you’re just steps away from the daily farmers markets, shops, restaurants, historic center and one of the city’s most beautiful and animated squares.
The apartment is set in a former mansion surrounded by peaceful gardens off the square and boasts a landmarked door. It enjoys southern and western exposures and lovely garden views. This is indeed a rare find in a medieval city where light, quiet and views are difficult to come by.
From the mansion’s entryway, a large stone staircase leads to the apartment on the second floor (see note below). Spacious by European standards, it has been beautifully renovated to feature traditional high ceilings, original tomettes tiles and original molding. The decor includes a combination of antique French and Provençal furnishings complemented by all modern appliances and conveniences, including Wi Fi internet access.
Off the entry is the open-plan dining area and kitchen. Fully equipped, the kitchen includes ample cabinets, granite counters, all appliances, new utensils and top-grade cookware. A breakfast bar with stools separates the kitchen from the dining area with round glass-topped table and upholstered chairs for 4 people.
To the left of the dining area is the living room, featuring an Art Deco chandelier, garden views, a decorative fireplace and fully-equipped entertainment center with flat-screen television. A handsome seating group includes a black leather sofa and two club chairs set around a small glass coffee table. The living room has a door which can be closed, providing privacy for guests sleeping on the sofa bed. Off the living room is a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
To the right of the dining room, is the bedroom with authentic Art Deco chandelier, antique furniture and artwork from the region. The queen bed is a custom-designed, hand-forged iron creation by a local artist. In front of the bed, a hand-forged iron bench offers a spot to sit and read while enjoying the garden views. To the side of the bedroom is the attached retro-style master bathroom with marble floor, tiled shower, pedestal sink, heated towel bar and toilet facilities.
A spacious and charming apartment in the heart of Aix-en-Provence.
