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.
