This is a great place in close vicinity to Aix-en-Provence (about 10 mins drive) located in the middle of fields with beautiful crops. You feel like being in the middle of the Provence while the amazing restaurants in Aix are so nearby. It is an old farm house with lots of character and is very comfortable for a large family to stay in. It has lots of rooms, and while not modern has a good and clean feel to it. The swimming pool was great for the kids and plenty of space around the house for them to run around. We used the house as our base for day trips to Aix, Marseille, Cassis, Arles, St Remy-de-Provence, Camarque, Waterland and all within 45 minutes drive. Dominique who lives just adjacent to the house was a great host and was always available to help and made us feel very welcome. We can recommend this property.

A wonderful feature of this comfortable and homely place is the way the light falls.....very important over the course of a long day! So here the sunlight was on the pool and surrounds for the best part of the day, but on the terrace early evening, offering a lovely chance for aperitifs and supper outside. Inside the layout is useful, with a downstairs bedroom and ensuite helpful for elderly family members, plus upstairs rooms well-spaced for privacy. Although the listing offers accommodation for 6 the small print days there is bedding for 9 and this is indeed the case. We were six adults ( two couples, two singletons) and three children and managed well. You could just about manage without a car as the bus comes reasonably near. Uber also works in Aix. The TGV is about 20 mins away. Here you are on the right side of Aix for the coast, and we enjoyed day trips to Cassis and Le Croix. Dominique is on hand next door to answer any queries and tolerated with good humour the screams of fun from the pool!

From the moment we pulled into the gravel driveway, nestled between an olive grove (from which Dominique makes his own olives) and a vineyard (from which he makes a lovely rosé), we knew we made the right choice. The house itself is lovely and open, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking supplies and plenty of plates, cups & silverware for the whole group-- in addition, he was kind enough to provide a few basics like milk, coffee and bread upon our arrival. We chose to visit in the fall, which was absolutely lovely-- warm during the day and cool enough to have a fire (for which Dominique has a supply of cut wood at the ready) in the evenings. The home is situated close to a local grocery store, though his own farm store is literally 1 minute away and sells his own bio-fruits and vegetables, as well as Aix en Provence (which can be accessed by the TGV). Dominique himself is a lovely gentleman and a perfect host. Another reviewer stated that he is the type of person Airbnb was made for, and I couldn't agree more. He is kind and helpful, yet very careful not to be intrusive. He lives next door and is always available if needed. He was also wonderful with our children, who have asked about him everyday since. In short, we really couldn't recommend the house more. Enjoy your stay!

The Maison de Cactere sits in the middle of a working farm - though farm noises do not interfere in your stay. It is not far from Aix centre. You need a car. The house is charming and right next door is a farm shop that sells the fruit and veg grown around you. Tomatoes from heaven... Dominique was the perfect host and provided us with many basics that allowed for a very comfortable and welcoming start (from coffee through to advice). If you are interested in history there are many things in the house you will see to fascinate. The house itself was built around 1730 - and everything works well. If you like cooking, the kitchen is large and extremely well equipped with very high quality items from knives &spans thru the gas range thru to the cooking hood. The house is very clean and the linens and pictures on the walls give clues to the owner who has some considerable taste. The courtyard garden is a delight to eat in in the evening. The pool now has a fence around it to protect from little children and animals getting into trouble. A good idea if you have younger children. We used the spot for visits to other towns and cities around Aix. And Sausset and Carro rank high up as great visits for Mediterranean swimming and local food respectively.

Dominique is the ultimate host; so friendly, welcoming, generous and kind. The farmhouse was perfect for us...we loved the huge box of fresh fruit and vegetables that greeted us upon arrival, along with Dominique's own rosé wine and cold pressed olive oil (fantastic!); we also loved the space, the pool and the Nespresso machine!! Very easy to reach Aix and the environs - great base! Thank you so much Dominique.

I will make this review in English as Dominique has a lot of guests from all around the world. AirBnB has been made for people like Dominique! He is very welcoming, kind and careful. He is always available when needed and also very discrete the rest of the time. He welcomed us with some of his own grapes and a bottle from his fresh Rosé :-) The house was even more charming than we thought, the kitchen is big and well equiped, the rooms are very comfortable and the patio under the old trees was just perfect from the breakfast to late in the night. Inside the house it was never too hot thanks to the thick stone wall. The pool was very nice, big enough to swim or simply to read with the feet in the water. We were 3 couples of 35 yo and we would definitely come back at Dominique's house next time we stop in Provence. We highly recommend this place if you want to live a true "Provencal experience"

Dominique was helpful, considerate and a charming host. The house is spacious and beautiful: the country setting peaceful and quiet. It is ideal for families with children - the swimming pool perfect for fun and hot weather - and the organic fruit and vegetable shop next door a real bonus for good food. This was a wonderful relaxing holiday, with lively Aix en Provence a short drive away. All amenities were provided by Dominique and our recommendation for this lovely house is very high indeed.
