The historic capital of Provence is located north of Marseille and is characterised by its cultural and historical treasures, which manifest themselves in the form of numerous sights in the city centre. For those who want to fully absorb the flair of the city, a apartment in the old town near the town hall and the Parc Jourdan is exactly the right thing. The modern and comfortably furnished accommodation also promises short distances to restaurants, sights and the city's promenade.A vacation rental in the countryside

You'll find a wide range of accommodation in the outlying districts of Bellevue, Les Parons, Les Plaines and Village du Soleil. You have the choice between idyllically situated holiday apartments and luxurious holiday homes, which are often equipped with a sun terrace and their own swimming pool.

Travelers and Activities
The splendid Cours Mirabeau mile is an attraction for culture lovers from all over the world, especially as famous theatres and artist cafés such as the "Deux Garçons" line up along the plane tree avenue like a string of pearls. After a stroll along the boulevard, however, you can take a detour to the old town to the north, where you can visit the Place d'Albertas with its world-famous fountain, the Town Hall with its clock tower and the baroque Église de la Madeleine church. The museums in Aix-en-Provence, such as the Musée des Tapisseries and the Musée Granet, which is one of the oldest museums in France, are also well worth a visit.
Things to know
Cultural metropolises such as Paris and Par Aix-en-Provence are in principle worth a trip all year round. But the trip is much more pleasant if the weather plays along. Fortunately, this is already the case in April, especially in the south of France, when up to six hours of sunshine a day ensure that the city tour becomes an experience. Accordingly, the season extends far into October. If you want to combine a cultural holiday with a beach holiday and visit the nearby Mediterranean, you should book your vacation rental in Aix-en-Provence for the months of June to September.Regular events
The fair in Aix-en-Provence in February marks the start of the event year. The festival continues with the Comic Strip Festival in March, the Tambourine Festival in April, the Salon Sm'art in May and the Opera Festival in July. Autumn, with the Book Festival in October and the Callison blessing in September, also has some highlights in store for visitors.
The inhabitants of Aix-en-Provence are called Aixois.
