There’s a great sense of vibrant style and fun at this contemporary villa just a 15-minute drive from Aix-en-Provence.

When not relaxing by the poolside terrace or chilling out in the outdoor jacuzzi, challenge your family or friends to a game of boules and ping-pong, then cool off in the gorgeous swimming pool or have a go on the aqua-bikes! The surrounding garden is wonderful dotted with olive trees and bursts of summer colour so typical of Provence whilst the terraces have been perfectly designed for convivial al-fresco dining and socialising at any time of day.

Inside the air-conditioned house, the open plan interiors offer ample space across the stylish lounge and dining room with floor to ceiling doors opening out to the gardens and the brilliantly equipped kitchen overlooking the al-fresco dining and poolside terrace. Sleeping 8-10 guests, each of the four double bedrooms features its own bath or shower room whilst one of the bedrooms has an extra double on a quirky mezzanine level.

There’s a small, traditional Provençal town within a five-minute drive, home to a handful of restaurants, shops and twice-weekly market. Just 10km away is the beautiful University town of Aix-en-Provence – a day won’t be enough to truly appreciate its charming shops, cafes, wine-bars, art galleries, fountains, parks and museums. Sip coffee in a terrace on the tree-lined Cours Mirabeau before visiting Cézanne’s art studio, then wander around the historic town soaking up its enchanting ambience.

Slightly further afield, drive to picture-perfect villages of the Luberon such as Lourmarin, Ansouis and Cucuron or venture south to the pretty seaside resort of Cassis, the gateway to the Calanques National Park. You could even spend the day in vibrant Marseille or head west to yet more idyllic coves and bays around Carry-le-Rouet and Sausset-les-Pins, reached in less than an hour by car.

Villa Lexington is in the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France only a 15-minute drive from the heart of historic Aix-en-Provence with easy access to Marseille Provence Airport (29km) and Aix-en-Provence’s TGV train station (18km).

It’s a rural setting with a small handful of neighbours nearby yet it does not feel too remote – within 200m you will be on the country road leading to a small town (1.5km) and then onwards to Aix-en-Provence (10km). The local town is home to useful amenities and a small handful of restaurants as well as a twice-weekly market. In and around the town, look out for locally produced calissons, a regional sweet speciality, and visit the town’s sculpture garden featuring work by Max Sauze.

The main attraction of this location has to be the close proximity of Aix-en-Provence (10km). A university town that enchants visitors from across the world, it’s a joy to wander around its historic lanes, shops, restaurants and wine-bars. Stop off for a coffee on one of Cours Mirabeau’s café terraces, watch children ride the iconic Carrousel Paul Cézanne, admire the charm of Fontaine de la Rotonde and visit traditional Provençal markets taking place various mornings each week. Visit Cézanne’s studio as well as the town’s art galleries, museums and parks.

Then of course there’s hiking through landscapes that so inspired great artists such as Cézanne, especially around Montagne Sainte-Victoire where there are incredible vistas of hills, woodland and vineyards. Wine-lovers should also take time to visit the excellent wine châteaux and vineyards dotted across the Aix countryside, many producing some of the country’s finest rosés.

Further afield, visit the landscapes of the Luberon and discover idyllic villages such as Lourmarin (26km), Bonnieux (40km) and the market town of Apt (46km), a must on a Saturday morning. Follow Van Gogh’s footsteps in Arles (70km), just over an hour away, or spend time getting to know the vibrant city of Marseille (40km), a melting pot of cultures with a fascinating heritage.

Beyond Marseille is the picture-perfect seaside village of Cassis (60km), the gateway to the Calanques National Park, or in the other direction you can visit the beautiful coastline west of Marseille with the beaches and calanques around Carry-le-Rouet, Sausset-les-Pins and beyond. Martigues (50km) is another very attractive town and there are great summer watersports on the banks of the Étang de Berre.

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

Just a 15-minute drive takes you into the heart of Aix-en-Provence, a delightful place to explore with children. The little tourist road train will excite youngsters wishing to tour the town, perhaps followed by a ride on the iconic Carrousel Paul Cézanne. Stop off for an ice-cream in one of the many beautiful cafes dotted across Aix and look out for locally made calissons, a type of marzipan sweet.  Learn all about the great artist, Cézanne, in his studio you can visit, then allow the children to let off steam in one of the town’s beautiful parks, some with children play areas.

Other attractions in the area include Zoo La Barben, only a 15-minute drive away, and two nearby theme parks; Le Village Des Automates (7km) and the fairy-tale inspired Parc Grimmland (24km).

If you feel like a day near the coast, discover the gorgeous beaches and calanques around Carry-le-Rouet and Sausset-les-Pins, try out watersports on the banks of the Étang de Berre or hop on a boat trip from the picture-perfect seaside village of Cassis, around an hour away by car.
