A lovely little house with a fabulous view
We really enjoyed our getaway in the little village of Vauvenargues. The house has 2 bedrooms: one on the bottom floor, the other on the top (3rd) floor. Both have bathrooms and comfortable beds. The middle level has a well equipped kitchen and a living area that opens to a balcony with a lovely view of Picasso's Castle and Mont Sainte-Victoire. A private parking spot is in front of the house, but don't have too large a car. The car must fit between a post and a tree. Anne Marie, our contact for the house, was delightful, although she did not speak English. She was very helpful, nevertheless. We made this our base for day trips to Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Cassis, and the Luberon. There is a Spar market just down the street that opened at 8:30. It is small, but has the essentials, including fresh croissants in the morning. There are 2 restaurants. We didn't try the pizza place which was open for coffee in the morning, but we ate at the Moroccan restaurant. It was fine. If you want a tagine, you must order 12 hours ahead, I think. (My french is not very good, so I might have that wrong.) There was also a bar down the street that was open, but we didn't go there.
Beautiful location and wonderful home!
This home is very well appointed with comfortable beds, great showers, and a fantastic kitchen. It is close to Aix en Provence but still maintains a village feel. The views are beautiful and there is a great grocery store and bar. There are two restaurants but they were closed during our stay. If you like to hike, there are great hiking trails with trail heads at the village. We had a wonderful vacation and plan to return to this same rental property in the future.
Small village, beautiful location but convenient to Aix
This three story house was a pleasure to stay in. It overlooks a valley with Mont St Victoria as a backdrop. The village has a good little grocery store for all the essentials. There is hourly bus service with multiple pick up and drop off points to and from Aix which saves you the hassles of parking. There is a reserved parking spot in front of the house. The furnishings are of good quality, (thank you IKEA) and we found everything we needed for our two week stay. There are wonderful and well marked hiking trails that start at the village. We would stay again.
Geschmackvolles Häuschen mit Traumblick auf Schloss und Berge oss
Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus mit allem, was man braucht. Die Betreuung durch die Nachbarn ist sehr hilfreich. Ein Katzensprung nach Aix en Provence und gute Wandermöglichkeiten zeigen die zentrale Lage. Der Ort ist freundlich, zwei Restaurants und ein Supermarkt bieten eine gute Versorgung vor Ort. Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern war unkompliziert und freundlich. Sehr empfehlenswerte Unterkunft!
Wir haben uns als Familie (3 Personen) in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt.
Das Haus war perfekt vorbereitet (es befindet sich alles im Haus was man braucht ) und wir wurden sehr freundlich und herzlich begrüßt.
Die Umgebung bietet alles was man für einen aktiven Urlaub benötigt: tolle familienfreundliche Wanderungen, wer möchte Felslettern in perfektem Fels: Besuche in Aix en Provence; Fahrten ans Mehr (z.B. Cassis) oder einfach faulenzen auf der Terrasse sind mögliche Urlaubstätigkeiten.
Das Dorf ist abends sehr ruhig und ein perfekter Rückzugsort.
Wie werden nochmal wiederkommen.
