Very good location in Provence, between Aix-en-Provence & Marseille

We would like to exchange our house with a house on the East cost of the USA or Canada to travel with our kids before our daughter starts at Boston University at the end of August. We are looking for a place not too far from the water (the sea or a lake).

Our house has a pool,a trampoline and two nice terrace to eat outside: one in front of the house and one in the back with a view on the forest. We also have two hammocks for you to relax in the shade during summer time.

There are 3 bedrooms: one with a queen size bed and two with single beds but we can change one of them in a double bed if needed. A large dining room, living room and open kitchen. One bathroom with a large shower, two bathroom sinks and a bathtub. Two separate restrooms. There is a basement with a garage and a large room (we use it sometime as an extra bedroom or as a yoga room in winter time ;-)

We live 25mn away from the airport, 15mn away from the train station (TGV) that can take you to Avignon and its famous Palais des Papes in one hour,or to Paris in 3 hours.

It will take you 10mn to go to Aix en Provence via bus or car and Marseille will take 20mn.

There is a lot to see around here: Aix en Provence is a beautiful town with a lot of very good restaurants. You can reach the sea in 20mn; have a walk on the old harbour, or along the Corniche in Marseille. You can visit all the typical villages from Provence. A very famous one is Les Baux de Provence which is a one-hour drive away and is built around a medieval forteress.
Just behind our house you can go hiking or biking. The center of the village is at a 10mn walk. It has a market every Thursday and Sunday
