An oasis of calm, only 3 km from the center of Aix en Provence. Situated at the edge of a pine forest, with magnificent views of Mt Sainte Victoire, discover the charms of Villa Valbelle: Two comfortable well-kept and sunny rooms with en-suite shower-rooms and independent entrances, the studio with it’s own kitchen and terrace, then relax by the swimming pool and gardens, or take a walk in the nearby forest. Visit Aix, the city of Cézanne with its musical festivals, history, and Provencal Markets; Arles, the Roman town is less than an hour away; the Luberon Mountains with their charming villages are nearby; Marseille is 25 min away, and so are many Mediterranean beaches.These are just a few of the attractions available nearby.

Un posto meraviglioso dove soggiornare. A solo un minuto da Aix. Camere molto curate e giardino con piscina e cucina splendidi e utilissimi. Rilassante e silenzioso. Cathy è meravigliosa, disponibile e le sue colazioni sono fantastiche. Consigliatissino!!!

Jacques Loubiere was fantastic in assisting a clueless Amercian in renting a car and navigating around southern France. The breakfast was incredible each day and I had a wonderful holiday. I can't recommend Villa Valbelle enough!

JACQUES AND CATHE HAVE A LOVELY HOME. THE BEDROOM SUITES ARE INDIVIDUAL AND QUITE COMFORTABLE. THEY MAKE YOU A DELICIOUS BREAKFAST EVERY DAY, BEFORE YOU VISIT THE STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL TOWNS OF PROVENCE. AS AIX IS CENTRALLY LOCATED, WE FOUND IT MUCH EASIER TO SPEND 3 NIGHTS HERE, RATHER THAN PACKING AND UNPACKING DAILY. DRIVES TO THE MAJOR TOWNS ARE ALL UNDER ONE HOUR. AIX IS ALSO ADJACENT TO THE A8 MOTORWAY, SO YOU CAN GET 'ON THE ROAD' EASILY. SERVICE AND FRIENDLINESS AT THE VILLA VALBELLE IS EXCELLENT.

We were very happy with the service Cathy and Jacques provided during our overnight stay in their nice house. The breakfast in the garden (especilly pancakes) gave a good start for our day.

The setting is perfect, the house is beautiful, and the Loubiere family are very gracious hosts. Just a few minutes outside of “downtown” Aix and near (but not too close) the A8 motorway, the location couldn’t be better. The comfortable rooms are downstairs from the main house with private entrances and the dining room/kitchen is in the back garden. The swimming pool is gorgeous and the yard is park-like. Cathy, Jacques, and the rest of the family could not be nicer or more accommodating. All-in-all, a great choice for your stay in Provence!
