Full property description

Located 19km West of Aix-en-Provence and 35km north west of Marseille, Velaux offers a beautiful view of traditional Provençal village life, with picturesque stone houses and cultural and social events organised throughout the year.

The apartment is set on the first floor of a villa with a gorgeous swimming pool. Measuring 9.6 x 8 metres, protected by barriers and available in the summer months, the pool is to share with the owners of the house, who live in the apartment just below. Enjoy a barbecue on your furnished terrace, looking over the garden and pool, or relax in the comfort of the apartment’s beautiful interiors.

There are fans in the flat to keep you cool in summer and the tastefully-furnished living room boasts a TV with a DVD/Blu-Ray player. Cook up a storm in a fully-equipped and modern kitchen, boasting a fridge, freezer, stove, dishwasher, coffee machine and more, then take to a dining table that seats 5.

Get a great night’s sleep in one of 2 peaceful bedrooms, one with a double and the other with twin beds (a children’s bed can be added on request and a baby cot is provided). The immaculate bathroom has a shower and a WC.

End cleaning, linen and towels are included in the rental price.

There is private parking on site, and smoking and pets are not allowed.

Area description

The picturesque village of Velaux sits in the perfect spot to explore the Provence-Côte-d’Azur region of France and there is so much to see and do in the area around the house. Surrounded by lush nature, olive groves and vineyards, the village enjoys peace and tranquillity yet is within easy access of popular Provençal tourist destinations.

Golfers can tee off at Golf d'Eguilles, 14km from the flat, while Côte Bleue beach, to the North West of Marseille, beckons with sunny swims in the Mediterranean just 35km away. Other activities near the apartment include water sports, fishing, horse riding, cycling, tennis and beautiful, scenic hikes. The nearest bar and supermarket are 500 metres away and the nearest restaurant is at 1km.

Don’t miss the stunning “calanques” between Marseille and Cassis (rent a kayak or hike to best explore these rock formations, dive into the turquoise sea and enjoy the beaches along the coastline), spend a day exploring the historic monuments and museums of the port town of Marseille (35km away) and sip coffee in one of Aix-en-Provence’s (at 16km) shady town squares. Also well worth a visit are the towns of Salon-de-Provence, at 18km, and Ensuès-la-Redonne, 29km away.
