 we were thrilled to go back to Aix en Provence in the easter hols while we were on a client visit.
we stayed in Aix for part of our honeymoon many years ago! and it is still as beautiful as it ever was

There a little squares hidden around every corner, and the colour of the buildings seems to radiate sunshine.

 We were lucky enough to stay at the fabulous chamber d'hôte La Pauline.
it belonged to Napoleons sister (who had something of an insatiable appetite for the boys!)  and has a fascinating history, however now it is a luxury b&b run by the truly delightful Sylvia.
there are only 5 rooms and each one has a private terrace to sit on. I feel slightly shamed to say we had a picnic on our terrace instead of going out for dinner as the view was to die for and the sun was still shining at 8pm! i would love to be there in the summer months when the pool is open, and it is definitely a hotel i would recommend to friends as it is only a 5 minute drive into Aix .
Anyway enjoy the pictures of this lovely place....and take a look at their website it will make you want to hop on a plane tomorrow!
