La Gracette

830 Route de Lenfant , Aix en Provence-Les Milles, 13290 France (Show map)


La Gracette, the farmhouse of a smallholding handed down over five generations is located just five minutes from the centre of Aix en Provence, and 15 minutes from the centre of Marseille. It is ideally located for easy access to the TGV station, a 7 minute car ride away and Marseille airport a short distance further. Raphaelle Chivers, concert producer, manager, designer of jewellery and her husband Dana, classical guitarist, will welcome you in their provençal home where the modern and traditional are mixed in a relaxed but refined atmosphere. You will still find original fixtures in some of the rooms. High quality bedding will assure you of a good night’s sleep. Breakfast is served in English bone China, brought back from a long stay in the United Kingdom. The tea is English; the coffee Italian. The mouth-watering breads and croissants are fresh from the local bakery ‘chez Marie’ every morning. A small area has been kept aside as a work space so you are able to be in contact at any time with your business contacts, friends and family. An internet connection; scanner and printer are at your disposal.

3 nuits à La Gracette

3.0 on February 26, 2016

J'ai apprécié l'accueil de mes hôtes, le calme de l'environnement au charme chaleureusement désuet. Le morceau de guitare classique, "volé" pendant mon repas dans la petite cuisine mise à ma disposition, était un régal pour mes oreilles. J'espère revenir au moment où le jardin sera épanoui pour profiter des gargouillis de la fontaine séculaire.

(I apologize for my poor english). I spent a perfect week with my wife and son ! I recommand this place with all my heart: sympathetic reception, good onsite dining, wonderful house, and nice hosts (?? I mean "des hôtes adorables"). What else ?

Très bonne adresse !

Très bonne adresse tout près d'Aix-en-Provence. L'accueil très sympatique dans une belle villa avec un joli jardin. Les époux Chivers sont charmants, les lits confortables et les petits déjeuners délicieux. Nous gardons cette adresse pour notre prochain séjour dans la région.

Lovely stay at La Gracette
