Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Superb villa within vast enclosed grounds. In a peaceful setting, without being isolated. Just 1 km from the village of Cabries, 15 km south of Aix en Provence. 25 km from the first beaches on the Côte Bleue.
Situated in the village of Cabries, 15 km south of Aix en Provence. Cabries is a large and typical Provencal village perched on a rocky spur between Aix en Provence and Marseille. You will enjoy the delightful medieval streets which wind between the old houses and give the village a lot of charm. In the Summer, the village will treat you to the local delicatessen with its famous "daube provençale", and its unmissable aïoli... without forgetting the local rosé wine!
Cabries is an ideal base to discover the beautiful city of Aix en Provence which is set against the lower foothills of the Montagne Sainte Victoire so dear to the painter Paul Cézanne. Amongst other villas and Mediterranean vegetation, 1 km from the village, 15 km from Aix en Provence.
