Overview

Pool Modern Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

At Villa Amazone you can holiday in style in your contemporary home with beautiful Provençal gardens and a glorious swimming pool, yet you are only 3km from the historic heart of Aix-en-Provence.

This modern villa with reversible air-conditioning is home to five sumptuous bedrooms, each with a private bath/shower room, therefore sleeping up to 10 guests in comfortable surroundings. The lounge is so elegant with plush furnishings, grand artwork and doors leading out to the covered terrace whilst the kitchen-diner is brilliantly equipped to prepare feasts for family and friends to enjoy al-fresco.  

The grounds are dotted with olive and pine trees and it’s wonderful being able to admire the sights and scents of Provence as you dip into the swimming pool or play a game of pétanque. Kick back beneath the covered terrace with a glass of wine from Mont Sainte-Victoire’s vineyards or wander up to the upper terrace, reached via one of the bedrooms, for views towards the mountain that inspired so much of Cézanne’s work. Indeed, the idyllic villages, vineyards, landscapes and walking trails in the foothills of Mont Sainte-Victoire are easily reached.

Yet this setting is also ideal for its close proximity to Aix-en-Provence, such an enchanting University town with its picture-perfect fountains, pretty patisseries, gorgeous café-terraces and of course the famous boulevard, Cours Mirabeau, lined with century-old plane trees. You’ll need a good few days to truly experience the beauty of this special town in Provence.

Elsewhere, you may also find the time to drive north towards the villages of the Luberon, many which have been classified as France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ such as Lourmarin and Ansouis. Not forgetting the grand wine-châteaux of the region or head down to the Mediterranean to sample the wines of Cassis, a charming seaside village with lovely restaurants, also the gateway to the Parc national des Calanques.

Villa Amazone is around a 10-minute drive from the heart of historic Aix-en-Provence. Bordering the Aixoise countryside just beyond the outskirts of the large town, there are neighbouring villas dotted around and you also have easy access to La Provençale road that connects Aix to other parts of Provence.

In the local area, an authentic seafood market/restaurant can be found less than a 5 minutes by car, a supermarket and other local restaurants just a short drive further or head into Aix-en-Provence (3km) for a delightful range of café-terraces, wine-bars and fantastic places to eat.

As you potter around Aix-en-Provence, embrace its historic beauty and character as you admire its baroque architecture and pretty fountains. The iconic tree-lined Cours Mirabeau is a picture-perfect spot for a morning coffee or lunch, followed by a stroll down to the famous Fontaine de la Rotonde and Carousel Paul Cézanne. Pop into patisseries to try out calissons d'aix and other regional sweet delights and don’t miss Aix-en-Provence’s daily food market on Place Richelme. The larger market on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning is another great way to soak up the charming ambience of this wonderful town.

Follow Cézanne’s footsteps around Aix by taking a self-guided tour available from the tourist office, visit his atelier just north of the town and venture up to the Terrain des Peintres for views towards Montagne Sainte-Victoire, a vista that so inspired Cézanne and many artists since.

Mont Sainte-Victoire itself is certainly worthy of a visit, especially for keen walkers and outdoor adventure enthusiasts with mountain biking and rock-climbing available here. Drive to pretty villages such as nearby Tholonet (4km) and Beaurecueil (8km) and sample wines in the foothills of the mountains at vineyards near Puyloubier and Pourrières, both around half an hour away by car. There are some superb walks around Vauvenargues (16km), an area immersed in beautiful nature.

Other day trips across Provence can include the villages of the Luberon (such as Lourmarin, Cucuron and Ansouis, all within a 45-minute drive), the artistic town of Arles (80km) and the vibrant city of Marseille (34km).

For water-based activities and beaches, head towards the Étang de Berre and the attractive towns of Martigues and Istres, both within an hour by car, or spend the day enjoying the gorgeous restaurants, little beaches, vineyards and boat trips around Cassis (49km), the gateway to the Parc national des Calanques.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

With Aix-en-Provence so near alongside many other child-friendly attractions in Provence, Villa Amazone enjoys a great location for families wishing to enjoy time in this beautiful part of southern France.

In Aix-en-Provence, stroll around looking out for pretty fountains, enjoy a ride on the Carousel Paul Cézanne, relieve tired legs on the tourist road train and make the most of the gorgeous terrace cafes dotted around the historic town. Follow Cézanne’s footsteps on a self-guided tour and visit his studio just north of the town.

Parc Jourdan is home to two small play areas whilst Parc du Val de l'Arc, only 2km from the villa, also has a playground as well as some wonderful walking paths. Of course, keen hikers in the family can search out suitable trails across the stunning Mont Sainte-Victoire.

Tree-top adventures can be found at Indian Forest, around 5km away, which has trails for a range of ages/heights and they even host evening sessions in the height of the summer. Also just outside Aix-en-Provence, around 13km away, is Anim'o parc, a little farm and play area where you can feed some of the animals.

If you feel like a day by the water, drive to the beaches and watersports of Étang de Berre near Istres and Martigues, around an hour by car, or venture to the Mediterranean coast with pretty villages and beaches around Cassis or Sausset-les-Pins and beyond.
