Interaction with Guests
On a daily basis.
In the centre of Aix!
Just to respect that I work. I often work from home and will need sometimes exclusive use of the lounge. However, when I am not working or entertaining the lounge is free for guests to (website hidden) DVD etc.
I also expect that any guest truly enjoys their stay in Aix with obvious considerations on all parts. There is no smoking in the house, but a small courtyard is available.
location, location, location!
if your trip to aix-en-provence is to discover the old town, this is for you! not only are you surrounded by some amazing architecture and history, being a 5 minute walk to the high street, viv's historical abode is tucked away from the madding crowds so you have an oasis to return to after a busy day out. its also a convenient 10-15 minute walk to the bus station. this was the first time i had used air bnb and i have to say overall it was a fantastic, memorable experience, not only for the above reasons, but because viv made me feel most welcome. viv has a great knowledge of the region having lived there for some 10 years. being that my french language is minimal and i was travelling solo, it was of some comfort knowing i could easy converse with her in english. the room is quite private being that it is some distance to the rest of the house. the bed is very comfotable. the house itself was clean and accommodating and steeped in history. i thoroughly recommend staying with viv......she's an awesome host! i hope the rest of my air bnb stays can replicate the experience i had staying at viv's place.
Apartment is huge! Great location. I booked last minute and Vivien made good communication with me before accepting as she would be busy during my stay. Very responsible host!! Recommend. Simple breakfast was provided as well.
Viv, thank you for being there to welcome me when I arrived and kind enough to show Aix, enjoyed spending time with you and sharing some stories ... Hope to revisit again someday. It was lovely meeting you Viv and thank you again for being a great host! Hope to see you again soon. Have a great Christmas and New Year. Cheers Penny
I had the best stay at Viv's house. The apartment is so well located. A short walk from the train and bus station as well as very close to the center of town. It's really ideal. Viv went out of her way to make me feel at home and comfortable. She accepted my reservation request last minute, showed me some of her favorite places — in the rain no less, and even helped me to get a gym pass for the week. It was also my birthday while I was there and she really helped make it great. Viv, thanks so much, you embody the airbnb spirit in every sense.
Situation parfaite : accès au coeur du centre-ville quasi immédiate !
Viv' accueillante et chaleureuse et pas envahissante.
Quartier calme : dodo respecté !
Great location and great host! Viv makes you feel very welcome and is really helpful with suggestions for things to do/places to see. The location of the house is absolutely perfect, just a short walk to Cours Mirabeau and the train station. If you are considering staying in Aix, then I absolutely recommend you book with Viv. You will not be disappointed. The house is very clean and so charming!
Viv was a great host. Although her plans took her out of town for the first night I was there, she set the place up for me and let me use her garage. Although the accommodations are simple, the house itself is very unique. On a tucked away street. It's a fun place to stay.

I am a semi retired British university and college lecturer (lecturers retire early in the UK) ;-) with some 'English As a Foreign Language' teaching in universities and companies in the Marseille area. I know the region very well as I have been flying back to and from UK for many years now-thanks to Easyjet. Heart in both places you might say. So I know the region and the treasures it has to offer. The lovely property which I have rented for several years now is the one I stay in when I work in France and am not in Brighton in the UK. It is the one you are invited to stay in.
I also have a village house near Avignon which has been our family holiday home for over 20 years. This shows how much we love this area. Shortly to feature on Airbnb?
If you chose to stay here in Aix, I might even throw in a couple of English lessons if you are non English speaking or French if you are non French speaking over a cup of tea, or glass of wine.
On a personal note, I am very sporty and enthusiastic about people and their cultures. I have two children who are studying in the UK who also love Provence and visit it as often as work will allow.
