The centre of beautiful and lively Aix-en-Provence is only 5 minutes drive - Villa du Jardin is the perfect place from where to explore one of France's oldest and most attractive Roman cities.and this property is only half a kilometre from a village; so one can indulge in simple pleasures like going to get your baguette in the morning from the boulangerie on foot.

 Forest walks a minute away.

Rural Provence, with its beautiful traditional villages, scenery and light that has attracted generation after generation of artists is also on your doorstep and the Mediterranean is less than 30km away. 

But you could just as happily lie by the pool smelling the lavender in the garden and nearby Mediterranean forest pines!
