Caution: A number of con artists have been using this site to search for targets. One of the main tactics is to ask for payment to be wired to an account and then deactivating their email address. This is still a relatively rare occurrence but it has been happening recently enough to warrant this advisory note.  The Editors of H-France advise you to use caution when interacting with prospective landlords overseas, even if they advertise on this site. Most reputable landlords can provide references from previous tenants or accept payment through a more protected means such as Paypal.

And if you’re thinking about exploring the nearby stunning countryside, a designated parking space at no extra fee in the on-site garage facilitates having a car during your stay. 
Monthly rent based on a minimum of 9-month contract: $3000; includes all utilities, wifi, telephone calls to all of North America and Western Europe.  Perfect for 1-2 people.  Not suitable for children or pets.
The Aixois like nothing better in the afternoons than to “flâner” (stroll) up and down the Cours, have a drink at a café and chat with their friends. You can join them and feel like a native by just by walking out the door.  The nearby rue d’Italie is filled with shops and boutiques of all kinds, so convenient for shopping for the apartment.   The Monoprix supermarket is down the street; bring the rolling cart with you to put your groceries in like everyone else in the neighborhood. You can walk to the daily marchés, as there is one every day in Aix and on some days two; there is no shortage of marvelous Provençal vegetables, flowers, and specialty products to tantalize your taste buds.  You’ll be amazed when you come home at the incredible silence of the building and particularly, this unit, as it has a sexy Cours Mirabeau address but is actually located on the street behind and parallel to the Cours, the rue Mazarine.  Guaranteed a good night’s sleep!
