On the scenic paths of Provence, a deluxe sun-filled bastide

With a Hollywood allure, this large sun-filled Provencal bastide faces a handsome sculpted fountain.

City of water, city of art, Aix-en-Provence allows itself to be rocked by the rhythm of crickets. Cours Mirabeau is the chic artery, featuring sculpted fountains and private mansions whose ironwork decorations convey a touch of Italy. Not far from historical midtown, its serene landscape with a generous nature is on display, facing a large 18th-century bastide filled with charm.

Featuring a wide array of amenities, it also comprises a 135 m² caretaker's house with a private garden, an artists's workshop, a 93 m² hot house and a small outdoor shed.
