About Agarrus Rocher

I am a French man married to an English lady.

We really love staying at Agarrus in Aix en Provence for its 300 days of sun a year, its exciting, historical and cultural life in the center of Aix and the farniente and calm around our heated swimming pool.

We hope you will enjoy your stay at Agarrus as we do.

Agarrus Rocher purchased this house in 2003

Why Agarrus Rocher chose Est

We arrived in Aix en Provence to profit of its 300 days a year of sun, its culture, food, wines, colors and fragrances...

3 hours of train TGV from Paris; 1,5 hour of plane from London...this is the perfect place for us !

What makes this house unique

Agarrus is situated at less than 4km from Aix en Provence; it means we have the calm of the countryside, the beautiful and large garden around the heated pool (28°C/82°F from May to October)...but also in 10 minutes we are in the center of Aix with its 1000 restaurants and cafés, its cinemas, its historical architecture and beautiful fontaines everywhere. The perfect place for shopping and culture !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Between the amazing house and the beautiful garden with superb trees and flowers, we were very pleasantly surprised. The owner and his English wife were helpful and friendly. Surrounded by the peaceful countryside of Pinchinats. Only a very short distance, 10 minutes drive, from the town of aix-en-provence. Large supermarket close to the house in a small village located nearby. We loved our stay here, a real getaway from our busy lives!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 5 days and we wished we could stay forever! It was perfect. A relaxing and idyllic escape. So peaceful. Bertrand was so helpful and friendly when we arrived - we immediately felt at home in this beautiful place. It was a quick drive into Aix - very convenient to a lot of great day trips as well. Although it was hard to leave because there were so many fun things to do at the house itself (ping pong, petanque, games, swimming, quiet relaxation on the veranda...I could go on!) - Bertrand, thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! We had a memorable trip and truly enjoyed it!

Provence Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just enjoyed a wonderful stay at this lovely villa. We were fortunate to meet Bertrand, the proud owner of this home. He made us feel very welcome and provided us with a detailed information and tour of all the amenities. The location is perfect. You are very secluded in this gated home, just far enough away from the activities and business of Aix. As we were were there during off season, we did not have the benefit of enjoying the pool and the other outdoor offerings. The home is fully equipped and is very comfortable. We look forward to renting this property again in a warmer season in order to enjoy the property to its fullest.

beautiful property at a great location

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I rented this villa for 3 nights in April. A few guests used the pool as the weather ticked higher. Loved how clean everything was. The villa is away from it all if you're looking to relax, although you can get to downtown Aix in 10 minutes. I even ordered an uber which came and picked me up. The property is off the beaten path so we arrived later than expected so give yourself extra time as a GPS won't take you to the doorstep. The host was very amenable and suggested Chateau La Coste for a wine tour/tasting. Highly recommend as it's a great place to for food and drink. All in all, a wonderful experience.

The perfect Provençal Experience

  • 5 of 5

We gathered at Agarrus for a long birthday weekend with friends and were delighted from the minute we entered the property. The location is not far from Aix and the TGV and a perfect spot to explore the area. We were more interested in relaxing however which we were able to do beautifully in the house. Sadly the weather was too stormy to spend much time at the pool but we spent an entire day cooking (having purchased marvelous products at the marche in Aix), eating and drinking lots of delicious rose. The home is comfortable as can be and set up for anything you'd like to do. I can thoroughly recommend this property to any visitors to the area!

Absolutely Perfect Provence Experience !! Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in Bertand and Laura's magical home and fell in love with it ! Perfect in all ways .... Peaceful and beautiful setting and gorgeous landscape, amazing pool .....lots of room to spread out so you aren't on top of each other ..... Close to Aix for lots of exploring , history and fun restaurants .... Though I will admit that it was hard to leave the house as the beauty and peace was so incredibly satisfying ..... Fresh figs off of the tree during season ( we were so lucky to enjoy hem with the regional cheeses) , gorgeous light and sunsets . I just can't say enough about how every aspect was super perfect ! Our host Bertrand is a fantastic help and available for any ?'s or advice for help needed .... Agarrus ( the name of this magical home) welcomes you in and you feel like it's your own ....close to town but far enough to be deeply satisfying and peaceful .... very enjoyable to go to town to the market to collect fresh fruits and vegetables ... Cheese, olives ... Wine or Pastis and of course fresh baguette to enjoy the products from this region at their freshest and finest on the patio or down by the pool "tapas style" .... A well stocked kitchen for making meals at home ...every aspect very satisfying for the soul... Agarrus is a perfect location for a base from which to explore many of the areas towns & villages ...! .... All which are wonderful to absorb the beauty and authenticity of France ...cannot wait to return and with a goal of once a year , will plan and book ahead to have this be our home when we are in Provence .... A couple of side notes in Aix -en-Provence ...We loved the boulangerie that is right there on the left when you exit the parking garage recommended to park "Bellegarde" for breads, croissant , coffee , pastry .... Sandwiches ....and there is a very special Crepe restaurant that is so beautiful inside and a very authentic experience .... Highly recommend it . Merci Beaucoup Bertrand and Laura ... We will never forget this wonderful trip and can't wait to visit again .
