Located in the heart of the historic center of Aix-en-Provence, just off one of the most active and beautiful squares ("places") in town, this apartment features absolute calm, unobstructed garden views and a generous layout. The newly renovated flat is a rare find in a medieval city where light, quiet and views are difficult to come by!
Housed in a former mansion, Aix Place des Cardeurs features southern and western exposures, soaring ceilings, and original 'tomettes' or Provencal tiles. Guests will find the newly renovated property an elegant retreat from the active hustle and bustle of town. Enter from the square through the landmarked door and immediately find yourself surrounded by the peaceful calm of the gardens. The apartment is reached by a large stone staircase to the second floor. You'll enter via the dining area; adjacent kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, four-burner cook top, oven, refrigerator and freezer, microwave. All new utensils and top-grade cookware and small appliances.
To the left of the dining room is the living room. High ceilings throughout are graced with Art Deco chandeliers and the apartment is furnished with a mix of antiques, art deco, and locally crafted pieces. The living room overlooks the garden and has a fireplace, comfortable seating and a fully equipped entertainment center. Full bathroom to the side has a toilet, sink and shower.
The living room has a door and can be closed off to give privacy to guest sleeping on the sofa bed.
To the right of the dining room is the bedroom, also with high ceilings, an authentic Art Deco chandelier, antique furniture and artwork from the region. The bed has a custom designed, hand forged iron frame created by a local artist and hosts a queen size mattress and box spring, fine quality linens from the US, down comforter and pillows. A hand-forged iron bench sits at the foot of the bed, inviting guests to sit and read while looking out onto the surrounding gardens.
Off to the side of the bedroom is the attached 'retro-style' master bathroom with marble floor, tiled shower with rain shower and hand held shower head, toilet and pedestal sink.
