Had some trouble finding it, but once there it was fine. The only problem was noise for a couple of nights (until just before dawn) but it was the end of term at the university so there was reason for celebration I guess. The apartment has triple glazed sliding doors but it doesn't cut out all the street sounds. The entrance to the apartment is scruffy, but don't be deterred, you get used to it after a few days. Great location for exploring Aix. Lovely (and very helpful) owner who rescued us after getting lost. Not a good location for a car. Fortunately we came by bus.
My husband and I stayed the month of October at Sophie's apartment and we were amazed upon entering by the large open living spaces. The living room opens onto a large balcony overlooking the lush park across the street. There is a side balcony that is shaded in the afternoon and perfect for an anytime rest. Since it is located on the second floor we enjoyed sunset every evening. The master bedroom has THE most comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has 2 twins or put together they make a king size bed. All linens were of very high quality with duvets and comforters. In addition the en suite bathroom of the master bedroom has a long counter with several drawers and a deep, long tub. The second bathroom has a great rain shower head with attaching wand. The kitchen is equipped as if a master chef had requested the cookware, dishes and glassware. The stove and dishwasher are of premium quality. Besides all these amenities to the property, the location is perfect for walking to the local boulangerie, town for cafes and the outdoor markets with fresh ingredients for any meal. The bus stop across the street with several different lignes is perfect for access to most anywhere in the area.
Sophie could not be a better communicator. We started writing her several months before our arrival and she responded immediately. Her co-host greeted us upon our arrival and made sure we were comfortable with details of daily French living. I attended the French Language school IS and my husband enjoyed his walks to town for shopping and enjoying the historical aspects of Aix en Provence. Sophie's apartment surpassed any expectations he had and is the best VRBO property we have ever experienced.
