About Pierre Gerard

We acquired the house in 1978 due to a job transfer to the region and while our three children were very young. We did not stay here all the time due to professional reasons. We have lived in many regions around France and abroad. We haven been living there since we retired in 2008, and have undertaken numerous renovations and the construction of the pool.

Pierre Gerard purchased this villa in 1978

Why Pierre Gerard chose Aix-en-Provence

We also have a house in a small village in Haute Marne. It was the childhood home of one of our parents, and we use it as a second home. We like to spend a significant part of the summer, reason why we rent the villa in Calas during the summer.

What makes this villa unique

We like the villa because of the following special reasons:

The house itself is spacious and functional; many people can comfortably stay here.

The garden pool and amenities are extremely pleasant for staying outdoors.

The location is very advantageous since it is very quiet and calm while having all amenities nearby (shopping centre for daily needs, Aix, Marseille, etc.)

Excellente deuxième expérience!

  • 5 of 5

C'était notre deuxième (et nous espérons pas la dernière) location et avons toujours autant été séduits par cette maison très spacieuse, extrêmement bien équipée à tous égards (cuisine, 3 salles de bain, coin pique-nique etc.), idéalement située entre Aix en Provence et Marseille, sans compter la piscine et sa "plage " en teck vraiment très agréable. Pour les amateurs, le jardin est aussi un plus qui ajoute au charme du lieu. De la même façon, tout est prévu pour que les locataires puissent connaître les "bons coins" où aller, ce qui est très appréciable.

Enfin, la possibilité d'accéder au Club House du domaine (tennis, Ping-Pong, baby foot, piscine semi-olympique) est idéal pour les grandes familles et permet de varier les activités des enfants.

Bref, nous avons été vraiment très satisfaits tant de la maison que de l'intendance assurée par une société de service à la personne dont la responsable a toujours été très réactive, très courtoise et à notre entiere écoute en tant que de besoin.

En un seul mot, super séjour dont nous sommes déjà nostalgiques et maison à recommander !

Bravo !

Very nice villa with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room in this spacey house. Everything was clean and well kept. The pool is very nice. There´s everything you need in this house-dishwasher, washing machine, wifi etc. Also access to the tennis court was a great thing to have! The owners are very helpful, lots of information about the neighbourhood, restaurants, shops, excursions etc. Situated close to Aix, beautiful towncenter, big market.

Superbe séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Grande villa au calme, très bien équipée et entretenue. Les propriétaires que nous n'avons pas rencontrés ont toujours été en contact avec nous et les informations, tant touristiques que concernant l'intendance de la maison, nous ont permis de passer un séjour très agréable.

La piscine et les deux terrasses ont été au centre du séjour.

A noter que la piscine (sécurisée) est entretenue par une société extérieure, de même que les espaces verts. Tout est parfait !

Nous recommandons sans réserve cette location, proche d'Aix en Provence, de Gordes, de Marseille, Cassis et ses calanques.... Un coin de paradis avec vue sur la Montagne Sainte Victoire.

Agréable séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Maison très bien équipée que ce soit pour les adultes ou les enfants. Quartier très calme et proche de tous commerces.

Le coin piscine est vraiment très agréable et devient rapidement l'espace de vie au quotidien ! Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison et très belle région !

Mr et Mme Gérard sont aux petits soins pour leurs locataires et cela est très appréciable. Encore merci à eux.

Je recommande cette maison à tous !

Séjour formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 2 semaines de vacances en famille (7 adultes et 2 enfants), tout était parfait! Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous, rien ne manquait, il y avait même tout ce qu'il faut pour un bébé d'un an (poussette, chaise de table, lit bébé...) Nous avons bien profité de la piscine (bien sécurisée) et pris nos repas chaque jour dehors : le matin et le soir sur la terrasse, et le midi à la terrasse près de la piscine : à l'ombre des arbres ! Balades dans les calanques de Cassis, visite d'Aix en Provence, les Baux de provence : beaucoup de belles choses à découvrir !

Nous n'avons pas rencontré Monsieur et Madame Gérard, mais nous avions régulièrement des messages de leur part. L'intendance est parfaite que ce soit pour l'accueil ou pour l'entretien de la piscine.

Bref, nous pourrions bien y revenir à l'avenir !

Christèle, Laurent et leur famille
