My sister, my daughter, and I stayed in Laurent's beautiful apartment for a week during our stay in Aix, and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. Let's get the negatives out of the way because they are few and far exceeded by the many positives.

We were supposed to meet Laurent at his office, which we never did find. We ended up parking down the street and calling him. He walked to our car (we were within a block) and guided us to the apartment. If possible, I would recommend meeting Laurent at the apartment. There is usually ample (paid) parking on the street, and you can explore the neighborhood while waiting for your appointment time. If you arrive right on time, the French seem to be fairly lenient about temporarily parking in the driveways across the street.

Accessing the garage was an initial shock since it is on the third level below ground down a one lane, but two way, curved drive. Getting into the individual enclosed garage (with lock) took a little back-and-forth effort. Once we got used to it and learned to use the mirrors on the access ramp, there was no problem.

Laurent took us up to the apartment (the lift is quite adequate to bring up three people and their luggage) and showed us the basics, including a manual in French and English for using the appliances and connecting to the WiFi. Unfortunately, after he left, we found the WiFi connection didn't work. We called him, and he had the problem fixed within a day or two. If this is important to you, as it was for us in planning our stay, try connecting while he's still there. In the interim, there were numerous cafes with WiFi access within a short walk.

The street noise can be loud during the night and early morning hours. We were there during the World Cup and easily knew when the French had scored from the loud cheers at a neighborhood gathering place. Many noises were happy ones, including the opera singer a block away preparing for the upcoming music festival. The garbage collection and other traffic noises were loud at times, but closing the windows and curtains eliminates most of it. In addition to the bedroom curtains, there are blinds that roll shut for light and noise elimination.

If you plan on doing laundry, the "dryer" is a hanging rack on the patio. It holds quite a bit, and our things were dry within a few hours to a day.

OK, now on to the many, many, many positives. The apartment was very clean, with high end beautiful décor, especially all the lamps and light fixtures. Room deodorizers are located throughout the apartment to assure a fresh scent throughout (not to mention the incense available in the living room). There are two spacious bedrooms with very comfortable double beds and plenty of closet space, and a roomy living/dining room with a large sofa that can serve as an additional sleeping space with the extra linens provided.

The kitchen has everything you would need to prepare an exquisite French dinner, with spices and other cooking supplies and utensils, including a starter supply of coffee. (Merci, Laurent!) The living/dining room includes a large TV and DVD system with a wide variety of CDs. The bookcase provides ample reading material, including lots of local tourist information and even bus maps.

We nearly lived on the patio during our stay, both because we are smokers and were permitted to smoke there and because it was a wonderful location for dining, writing our journals, and planning our trip. The view from here and both bedroom windows is of a neighborhood full of trees and patio plantings. The table and chairs served as the dining spot for all the goodies we bought at a local market about 2 blocks away (great wines and fresh produce).

We kept the patio door and bedroom windows open nearly all the time. At this time of year (mid-June), the temperature was comfortable, and the nice breeze through the apartment was fresh and pleasant.

The location couldn't be better! Restaurants and cafes are within a couple of blocks in any direction. A Monoprix (supermarket/clothing/bookstore) is about a block away. The central Rotonde, Tourism Center, and Cours Mirabeau are all within a couple of blocks. There is no map to most of these, but just take a quick walk in each direction and you'll easily find them.

Of the three apartments we rented during our stay in France, this one was far and away the best. The online description is an understatement. There was so much more here than we expected. I could go on at much greater length, but maybe a few photos will suffice. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Aix. We could envision living here long term.

Thank you, Laurent, for letting us rent this beautiful apartment during our stay in Aix! We greatly appreciated your décor, the spacious accommodations, and all of the pluses you provided! You made our stay in Aix a real joy.
