Description of House In VelauxThis attractive holiday house in a villa is located 30 minutes away from Aix-en-Provence and the nearest beaches. The property overlooks its extensive gardens and a large pool. The discreet owner, who lives in another part of the house, rarely shares the amenities. You will holiday at the end of a cul-de-sac in a very quiet residential area, where a catering company regularly drives around and offers its services. Aix-en-Provence, also known as the Florence of Provence is nestled in a rural setting and enjoys the protection of the 1,011 metre high mountain Sainte-Victoire. This place owes its name to what was formerly the capital of the Provence of the thermal springs, and which was discovered by the Romans in 123 BC. Aix-en-Provence is a lovely city of art and culture with stately property of the bourgeoisie and other primary houses, flowered squares, ancient fountains and delightful shaded streets. Every summer, an international opera festival attracts divas and maestros here, and its dance festival also enjoys international fame. Enjoy your stay in Velaux, a typical Provencal village, which is 40 minutes away from Marseille and its old port. The small place is not far from the large urban centres of the region and overlooks green plains with vineyards and olive plantations behind Aix-en-Provence. Two museums emphasise the great cultural heritage of the region. Many tourists visit here on the national holiday, in July. On this joyous day, a torchlight procession, fireworks at the village well, a dance event and plenty of entertainment for children are organised. For more than 50 years, besides the patron saint of the town, the Saint Eligius is also celebrated every year. A week-long dance events and performances follow.
