... as an alternative excursion. On this five hour tour, we enjoyed this quaint seaside village, Les Calanques, and the perfume store/museum where you could purchase fine colognes and perfumes, L'eau de Cassis. Cassis is also known for its white wines but having already partaken in Italy yesterday, we decided to forego it in the interest of taking a boat excursion of 45 minutes out to ...
... the area that is closed off if you want to get out during the day)! So you park wherever you can. There does seem to be a lot of tourists here, with a great deal of cafés, restaurants and bars. There is also quite a few art type shops. The village is only flat at the centre and has one other flat area, the roads and wildly and steep. There is a Chateau ...
... Goats cheese mmmm they were both good-more bread was consumed by the frenchies, now you are ready for dessert, a homemade pie with real prunes picked fresh from the tree this morning ohlala – Carol is a very good cook and I’m not quite sure how she finds the time these meals just seem to appear. It’s a great experience to live like the French and eat what they cook in their home, Carol tells me she cooks her ...
... tree lined street - the Champs Élysées of Aix) and an English book shop - "Book In Bar". We had lunch outside at an Italian restaurant "Le four sous le Platane". The pizza was delicious and I'm sure the kids would vouch for the gelato they had for dessert. After lunch we continued our walking tour through Aix stopping to check out a few shops along the way (I get the feeling Aude knows all the best shops in Aix so made a fab tour guide!) and to sample some local ...
... to check-in our luggage. After several fits and starts, we succeeded in running the gauntlet and checked the bags (without any excess baggage fees, which surprised us).
We took a taxi from the Marseille airport to our apartment in Aix-en-Provence, on the Cours Mirabeau, the main drag of this elegant town of approximately 150,000 inhabitants. This street, which is more like a promenade, is packed with cafes, shops, and bustling with pedestrians, many of whom appear ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aquabella Hotel Aix-en-Provence
Stayed in September. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. On arrival, noting the lobby I expected it to be ho-hum, but then the rooms were very nice size, and that bathrooms clean and nice showers also !! I actually enjoyed my stay there. I think for the overall price, it was a deal. Good location on the walled border of Aix. I was able to walk 15 minutes to the bus depot to catch my trains, by walking on the main street, rather than the cobble stones of the old town. Nice pool area. The dinners at the restaurant were actually quite nice. Also, they offer a coupon for free wine the first night at dinner, and given it's house wine, it was actually very very good. I would stay here again if I ever went back to Aix...but I doubt I'd go back to Aix, the city itself is overated.
My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel in early October 2004. We loved the location of the Hotel and thought the price was very reasonable. The Staff was largely unhelpful and occassionally neglectful, so be prepared to fend for yourself. The room was quite nice, actually, and large by Euro standards. There is a fantastic spa facility attached to the Hotel, if you enjoy that. Overall, a great place to stay in Aix (which is a great city, by the way) but dont expect to be pampered by the staff.
Enjoyed our stay
My wife and I stayed at Aquabella for three nights starting September 2nd. It was a great location for walking Aix and seeing the sights. The hotel was modern, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Decent restaurant on site. Loved the Thermes Sextius Spa connected to the hotel. Highly recommend.
Stayed at this hotel early September 2004 for 6 nights.
There's nothing bad to say about this hotel it was spotless, the staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities are excellent.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to stay in Aix.
One tip though...if there's a large group of Americans staying get to breakfast before them!! The devastation after they've left!!!!!
Great hotel, horrible city
This was a great hotel in a depressing city. Aquabella was the only hotel that had signs leading to it off of the highway. Good location close to Cours Mirabeau, which is the main strip with cafes. Too bad the cafes serve disgusting food. Aix-en-Provence and french food is highly overrated.
The room and lobby were very modern and clean. Thank god there was actually the opportunity to take a proper shower compared to our Paris and Nice hotels that only offered the "telephone shower". Breakfast was very dissappointing. Front desk staff were not as friendly as our other experiences.
The only nice thing about Aix en Provence
I left a 4 star hotel to come to the Aquabella which is only a 3 star.
I like this hotel , the rooms are of a good size , the food is good and the staff are(uniquely for the South of France ) friendly , polite and helpful.
My only objection to the Aquabella is that it is in that be cursed by God, awful , mean minded, over priced , rude,bad value , disgrace to the myth of French good food , I will never go there again ,pit of hell called Aix en Provence.
Clean hotel. Hard to find but has available parking.Room size and bathroom size are good. Staff was not particularly helpful. Very close to Cathedral and not too far from Cours Mirabeau.
