The Duo-Loft, an apartment in a historic private mansion from early 15th century is in Aix's old historic town. It stands in the Archevêché quarter (Festival d'Aix), just a few steps away from the Cathedral, Place des Cardeurs and Hôtel de Ville. A peaceful haven in a lively bourough of old Aix. Aircondition unit added in Sept. 2017 for warmer days.

The space
A STUDIO-LOFT, PEACEFUL & BRIGHT TO APPRECIATE THE SUNNY PROVENCAL WEATHER...
This beautiful one-bedroom loft is found in a tiny quiet street in the heart of Aix's elegant old historic town. It stands on the 1st floor (bedroom in a loft or mezzanine) of a private historic mansion dating from early 15th century, reconstructed in early 17th century. King Louis XIIIth has spent an evening here in November 1622 as an honourable guest of the Borrilli family. This mansion is called Hôtel Borrilli. It is one of the oldest still-standing buildings in Aix and is listed as one of France's protected historical monuments.

ALL DESIGNED TO MAKE YOUR STAY IN AIX LIKE YOU'RE IN YOUR SECOND HOME...
Aircondition unit added in Sept. 2017, Duo-Loft was completely renovated in neutral colors of white and taupe grey, with modern contemporary design and using some natural materials, this apartment has been designed to provide maximum comfort to highly demanding people who wish to stay in a perfect central location: a light-filled living & dining room with TV ADSL with more than 100 channels, free Wifi, bamboo parquet floor, modern but comfortable furnitures & fixtures, a small but fully-equipped kitchen, a very cosy mezzannine with a standard double bed and a modern ensuite toilet & bath, as well as books & travel brochures on Aix-en-Provence and the Provence region. Ancient architecture preserved with low ceilings in original wooden beams with height of 1meter86 (6 feet 1 inch) in some areas - kitchen, bedroom & bathroom in the mezzanine.
From its large windows, you can enjoy peace & quiet as the apartment is on top of a private courtyard with lush beautiful tall trees & flowers, a pure rare luxury when you are in the old town of Aix.

THE DUO-LOFT IS JUST A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM ALL YOU MAY NEED FOR AN ENJOYABLE MEMORABLE HOLIDAY...
Restaurants, cafés, boutiques, muséums, cathedral, groceries, convenient stores, open-air markets - all within short walking distance. You can buy seasonal fresh fruits & vegetables in the market each morning and in the afternoon head for a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or light snacks in the Place d'Hotel de Ville and Forum des Cardeurs, of course al fresco to fully enjoy the pleasant Provencal weather, its vibrant people and live like them.

Where you’ll be

Aix-en-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

The apartment is found in a tiny quiet residential
street right in the heart of the old town, making one's stay pleasant & convenient for walking or sight-seeing and yet peaceful enough to get a good night sleep.
Being so close to so many things but especially the open-air markets that makes Aix an ideal destination for great deals - daily farmer's market offering fresh regional produce (fruits, vegetables, honey, cheese, hams, truffles, seafood...), flowers, old books, fabrics, clothes, paintings, etc...
The ancient Cathedral of Aix (Saint-Sauveur Cathedral) and the Théâtre d´Archevêché (where they hold Aix's yearly Int'l Opéra & Music Lyric Festival) are also a few steps away.
