Overview

About the property

Small charming house, old orangery restored, with garden center of Aix

Old orange greenhouse converted into a loft, located in the garden of a beautiful bastide early 19th, a five-minute walk from the historic center. The orangery is nestled in a small residential and peaceful crossing in the center of a garden: the countryside in the center of Aix

The recent restoration of the place has combined contemporary comfort with the charm and originality of this ancient orangery.

Very sunny, it has a south facade consisting of a series of glazed arches directly overlooking the garden with Mediterranean species, garden decorated with small fountains and surrounded by old walls.

You can rest in the shade of trees or enjoy the full sun; you can also have lunch or dinner in the quiet garden a few steps from the courtyard Mirabeau and the effervescence of the historic center.

The restoration is a mixture of old (the building) and contemporary (landscaping).

The place is central to enjoy the historic center of Aix and all Provence from the Luberon to the Alpilles to the Mediterranean Sea.

Visit the city of Aix a few steps, museums, fountains, the Mazarin district and its many mansions of the 17th and 18th centuries, the famous Cours Mirabeau, the cathedral Saint Sauveur which occupies the site of the Roman forum.

Nearby, the mountain Sainte Victoire.

Opportunity to go on the Bibemus plateau, on foot or by bus, and visit the quarries painted by Cezanne.

Many sites can be reached within an hour by car:

the perched villages of Lubéron, Lourmarin, Ansouis, Ménerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste ...

Arles and its ancient theater, its museum, its arena

Avignon and the palace of the popes

The Baux de Provence and the Alpilles

The creeks of Cassis

Gorges du Verdon

The Camargue

The lavender roads (the Valensole plateau), the Forcalquier region

Lovely gite, very well equipped with a pretty garden and within easy reach of the centre of Aix

  • 5 of 5

The Orangerie is a unique gite with its own character. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and used the bus service extensively to see the sights. Our hosts were both welcoming and full of useful advice for us to make the most of our three week stay. The location is within 3 minutes walking distance of the nearest bus stop which took us to the centre of Aix in 10 minutes. Aix is an interesting and beautiful city.

A hidden gem, close to the centre of this beautiful city

A lovely studio apartment in a pretty walled garden, 5 minutes walk from the historic Centre of Aix. The owners, Dominque and Andre were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is clean,quiet and well-equipped and the garden was lovely. We loved it and would definitely return.

The Orangerie was perfect for a peaceful restful holiday near to the old part of Aix.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Orangerie which had everything that we needed. Having the use of the lovely garden made it special. Domenique and Andre were very kind and helpful and we knew that they were just next door if we needed anything. The property is five minutes walk to the old town of Aix and in a quiet area off the main street.

The garden is beautiful, welcoming and fragrant. We will stay there any time we need to be in Aix. Added bonus: parking space.

Wonderful slice of tranquillity near the centre of Aix

  • 5 of 5

Delightful, welcoming and helpful hosts. "The orangery" has everything you need for a home away from home, with lovely bedding. The apartment is clean and comfortable set in a delightful garden next to the main house. The centre of Aix is a 5-10 minute walk. We would thoroughly recommend staying here!
