Aix en Provence Residence

Good morning to all of you dear readers. Monday takes us to this magnificent 18th century “Bastide” in Aix en Provence, in the region of Provence-Alpes- Cote d'Azure, France. It has twenty-five acres of private parklands with olive groves and cypresses, complete with a care-taker’s lodge and numerous additional outbuildings. Situated in a beautiful and quiet countryside location and only three hours from Paris.

I must say the house itself is breathtaking, I love these solid old houses with their splendid gardens but I don't care much for the decor. Wouldn't you change the furniture in the living room and dining room? Let me know what you think.

  1. Oh my, what a lovely home! And being in Aix makes it even more wonderful! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi.

  2. Stunningly beautiful. Thanks for sharing these fabulous pics!

  3. Lovely home and property. I agree, I don't dig the furniture either. A correction: Aix en Provence is not in the Cote d'Azur.

  4. Hi Kifus,
    la Francia è veramente molto romantica ...

  5. Thanks all of you for your comments. Frenchee, I rushed to wikipedia and ths is what I found:

    I quote: "Aix-en-Provence (Provençal Occitan: Ais de Provença in classical norm, or Ais de Prouvènço in Mistralian norm, both pronounced [ˈajs de pʀuˈvɛⁿsɔ] or [zaj])[citation needed] to distinguish it from other cities built over hot springs, is a city in southern France, some 30 km (19 mi) north of Marseille. It is in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône."

    Hope you all have a great week!

  6. Hello Kifus!

    What a wonderful place to live! I could have done a lot of not-so-nice things to have been able to live there, haha! But I agree with you, the interior is not suitable to the house at all. (But I must admit that I feel that many of these furniture does not fit in anywhere..)Just like you, I think the dining room differed especially out, and I mean not on the whole better way..
    Fortunately, furnitures can be replaced fairly easily :) I must say Kifus, I admire your talent to find beautiful homes and present them on your blog, and you have no idea how much your posts inspires me! Keep ut the good work :)
