Right in the middle of the small historical center, near bars/restaurants/food shops etc. Underground carpark right beneath, pedestrian exit opposite the flat. No other suitable parking & costs 15euros a day, weekly ticket available. Directly over 2 bars & a coffee cafe but noise no problem as double glazing good & shutters also blocked out light excellently. Well equipped including aircon in living room & main bedroom. None in small bedroom which did become stuffy. Large tv in sitting room & one in main bedroom but no English speaking channels.Salon lovely place for a few days, plenty of places to visit around, easy to get in & out of just parking a problem. the Castle & Nostradamus Museum were great, especially the weekend we were there as it was a free weekend! Also olive festival at Mourie nearby, lats of country dancing & costume great!.

At the same time, they respected our privacy - truly lovely people. The location of the house is fantastic. It's a lovely, peaceful location but walking into Salon-de-Provence with it's many shops, bars and restaurants is easy. The rest of Provence is easily accessible by car via good motorways - there are some lovely places in less than an hour's drive. The house itself was furnished to a great standard and having meals on the little terrace was great. We would definitely recommend this property.
