Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
La Maison d'Aix was once an elegant and private mansion belonging to courtesan and well known antiques dealer Henriette Reboul. Now, lovingly restored and renovated by owners Laura Juhen and Louis Mariotti, it is home to an atmospheric and refined little boutique hotel.
Laura, appealed to the brilliance of joiners, cabinet makers and other local artisans to transform the building whilst preserving the magical world of Ms. Reboul. Every piece of wood or stone was made to order, from the Jerusalem stone floor in the winter garden, to the striking furniture and Corset chairs. Nothing at this Chic Retreat has been left to chance and the result is, quite simply, a masterpiece.
A simple but delicious breakfast is served each morning in the winter garden. Whilst there is no restaurant on site, Laura will happily share her recommendations nearby and help you to savour some of the best delicacies the south of France has to offer.
The four rooms at La Maison d'Aix have each been designed with an eye for detail and comfort in mind. The style is sleek and minimalist with smooth, teak floors and a monochrome colour palette. The spacious bathrooms feature Italian showers made from Jerusalem stone and some have bespoke stone bathtubs reflected in Venetian mirrors.
Laura can arrange everything and anything for you during your stay; a personalised tour of Provence villages, tasting local wines from the region or pampering treatments in the secret spa with swimming pool/Jacuzzi, traditional hammam and relaxation room.
The Red Parlour is a cosy place full of books and it has a flat screen TV with DVD player and game console - offering the perfect spot to retreat to after a hard day’s exploring.
Set in the elegant Mazarin district, the hotel is well placed to explore with both the picturesque Cours Mirabeau and Musée just nearby and Cezanne’s studio a 20-minute walk north.
