Situated only 2 kms from the historical centre of Aix-en-Provence, Mas des Micocouliers is a typically Provencal stone guest house dating from the 19th century. Entirely restored, it benefits from a privileged situation combining the attractions of the countryside and those of the city. The Mas boasts five types of accomodation to suit everyone's needs. There are kitchenettes in all rooms and gardens to relax and enjoy provencal food and wine. In the heart of the protected hills of the Montaiguet, 100m from the bridge of "Les Trois Sautets" painted by Cezanne with the Sainte Victoire mountain nearby. Mas des Micocouliers is extremely well located for enjoying the charms of Aix (its rich historic past and its cultural present), and the surrounding countryside (National parks of the Luberon, lavender fields, Provencal villages and markets, cliffs of Cassis). We are situated less than 2 kms from an excellent Bio supermarket which has a comprehensive range of organic/bio products. Just behind our property is the start of a stunning walk, cycle or jog around the hills of the Montaiguet down to the beautiful river Arc - why not join the regular joggers! Home made jam served for breakfast when available, fresh herbs available for you to cook with from our garden. Swimming pool heated from end of April to the end of September.

Stayed here for 5 relaxing days. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The grounds are charming and the set up makes it feel like a home from home. You can walk or take a bus into central Aix and the added plus is the secure car parking. Highly recommended. We will be coming back.
