What we like
- Downstairs: The modern design means the downstairs living areas are open-plan and full of light, and with the wide sliding glass doors it feels like the downstairs and garden are all one space.
- Location: A peaceful setting but the centre of Aix-en-Provence is under 10 minutes drive away.
- Design: Chic and minimalist but very comfortable.
Things to note
- Pool security: Extra care should be taken with young children.
