About our home

Our house is situated on a hill known as Bibemus plateau just outside Aix-en-Provence, it is 7 minutes by car to the centre of Aix but from the hill you feel like you are completely in the middle of the countryside. 10 minutes walk up the hill is the plateau and is part of the Saint Victoire national park and from there you have an incredible view of Mount Saint Victoire, I have attached photos of the view. Our hill is famous as Cezanne used to paint Saint Victoire from the plateau. We have a lovely community here and during the warmer months we have a neighbour who sells the vegetables and fruits he has grown in his garden, called 'les jardins de bibemus'. There is another neighbour who sells her home-made oriental food at the local market.

If you like yoga, the Provence Festival of Yoga is held annually on our road, a few minutes walk from our house. The yoga centre runs classes in their geo-dome right through the summer.

Our guest house is next to our house and within around 3 acres of our private land. It has 3 bedrooms plus a mezzanine area which has a bed also, it has 1 bathroom and a separate toilet, a kitchen, open lounge with double height vaulted ceiling, and a dining area. There's a double bedroom and a single room on the first floor, and a further double bedroom on the ground floor, plus a sleeping area on the mezzanine and a bed settee in the living room. The single room is available with a cot bed as well (at a squeeze). There large sliding doors from the lounge onto a terrace where you can dine. Although there are sufficient beds to sleep 8 people, bear in mind that there is only one bathroom with a separate toilet.

We have a tennis court which you are able to use, I can provide rackets and balls. There is also a play area for children

I have lots of children's items available, I can provide a cot, a pram, car seat, high chair, safety gates, etc.

We are a French/English couple with two boys aged 9 and 11 and we like to travel particularly in Europe.

During the summer we have a swimming pool which you can use, normally it is available from May until end of September.
