“A great base for visiting the area.”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

My wife & I stayed at Jean Christophe's B&B this March at the end of a business trip. A delightful spot, with easy access via car to downtown Aix. Your host is a wonderful fellow, who got us out into the countryside the morning of day 1, hiking the numerous trails close by (very refreshing). We then proceeded into the city that afternoon, enjoyed a nice coffee/local dessert/shopped, and finished up collecting some good Vietnamese cuisine & a nice bottle of wine for a quite dinner at "home" (we stayed in the Jardin room, quite spacious & comfortable). Day 2 we spent traveling around Mt Sainte Victoire. The 60 kms around the mountain offered some wonderful views of the numerous wineries to the east of town. Made me wish I had my bike with me for a day out in the countryside, but will save that for another visit:)

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a slightly larger room. 3 of the 4 rooms at La Ferme offer this. Overall, the B&am...

We stayed at this "Gite" for 2 days in october 2013.
I first communicated with M. Fournier bye Email in end august of same year. All communications and reservations were answered and reserved by email as well, rapidly and without any problems.

When we arrived no problems or hassles, he gave us all recommendations for the lodging and breakfast times without wasting any of our time.

We reserved "Chambre Jardin" and were very pleasantly surprised. Spacious and comforting with a comfortable queen sized bed, a living area and a spacious bathroom.
The room has a beautiful view of the garden and is very quiet.

Breakfasts were very generous, with very good bread and croissant, coffee and eggs if you like! It permitted us to meet another Canadian couple, Brazilian couple and a very interesting couple from North or South Carolina (sorry i forgot)!

His recommendation are very good, as we don't go for the crowdy touristy stuff, he suggested very interesting itineraries taking into account our interests.

He knows the region extremely well and is very knowledgeable of history and geography!
We appreciated his attentions very much and would stay there without any hesitation again!

Room Tip: good recommendation for Pizzeria ""La famillia"" in Aix was given by owner...

we were two families with small kids, the place is gorgeous, typical Provençal villa. beds are comfy, breakfast is fresh, and the big plus is Jean the owner - the best thing to hit France since sliced Baguette. (i guess they don't have that. well they probably should!). extremely friendly, knowledgeable (about the area, where to go to beat rain fronts, and just in general) and charming.

Room Tip: the main house adjacent have better WiFi.

La Ferme is an amazing place to spend some relaxing time and a great basis to visit Provence. The owner is very helpful. We spent an amazing week and recommend it 100%. We stayed in the Bergerie. The two interconnecting bedrooms were perfect for us. The view from one of the bedrooms was amazing...

Room Tip: It is perfect for families.
