We really enjoyed staying here at the Hotel des Augustins. The hotel is "within the walls of an ancient convent, it is a happy blend of history, architecture and modernity."
We particularly enjoyed our room on the top floor as it had a patio near the rooftops. The room was small but clean. Unfortunately we had to climb some stairs to get to the room but it was well worth it....
The room had a little refrigerator full of pop and liqueur. I promptly emptied its contents and filled it with those lovely, French pastries from across the street.
Unique Quality: Aix is a perfect town to use as a base. You can see most of Southern France staying here. We stayed a week and just about saw all we wanted to.
Is there an off-season in Provence? When the weather's not too bad but the prices are lower? If so, when is it?
What would be a good place to take in the idle idyll? Nice scenery, healthy food, picturesque cafes? For a week or so, then ...
... on to Portugal for a week. What would be the cheapest way to get there? And where should one go?
What I have in mind is a mood holiday, comparing the flavours and cultures. Ideas, mates?
You might look at staying in Aix-en-Provence. Staying near the Cours Mirabeau will give you access to lots of Cafes. From Aix-en-Provence you can take day trips and see most of Southern France.
We stayed at the Hotel des Augustins which was very well located and fairly inexpensive.
