When we arrived at the property we were met by a very friendly young man who showed us around. Our first impression was disappointing, because the pool looks very big in the photograph, when in reality it is quite small, but the villa is well equipped and set in a very nice quiet neighbourhood. The hosts had generously left a complimentary bottle of wine, which was very welcome. During our stay we didn't have a car, but the bus stop is only a 15 minute walk away, and buses arrive every 20 minutes to take you to the centre of Aix en Provence. The taxi to and from Aix en Provence TGV station, however, is very expensive without a car, and we paid 50 euros each way. The mosquitos are a problem in and around the villa, so take plenty of insect spray! We came home with lots of insect bites. Also there are ants in the bathroom. But I supoose that's to be expected in the countryside. It was a very nice experience, however, to sit and eat at the garden table and swim in the pool, or lounge in the recliners that the hosts provided. We had a lovely, lazy time! When we left the property every day it was very difficult to lock the shutters and doors because the keys seemed to get stuck sometimes, which was an ordeal. We would also have liked clarification about the cleaning requirements at the end of the stay. Although we left the property tidy, we did not realise that the hosts expected us to clean it thoroughly. We thought that cleaning services were included in the price. This was a misunderstanding, but the hostess was quite hostile to us as we left, and so we returned home feeling sad, which was not a good end to the holiday.
Guillaume et sa compagne sont d'excellents hôtes. Bonne communication, ils font preuve de souplesse et sont d'une grande gentillesse. La maison est parfaite pour une famille, au calme, à 12 min du centre ville. La plancha dans le jardin est par ailleurs bien pratique pour manger en plein air. Je recommande vivement.
