“Villa Gallici pulls off the trick of being both chic and cosseting. Beautiful inside and out, it is set in magical gardens, with terraces, a gorgeous pool and vast terracotta pots spilling over with flowers. The interior is a happy combination of Provençal and Florentine; the sumptuous rooms and suites, resplendent in bold patterned fabrics and wallpapers, and with 18th-century furniture. Downstairs, you’ll find a series of elegant, bright sitting rooms and a romantic restaurant, full of fresh flowers, polished silver and – in the evening – the glow of candlelight. Eat here or al fresco in summer.”

"Just a 15-minute walk from the bustling Cours Mirabou in the heart of Aix, you’ll find the 22-room, ultra-luxe, terra cotta dream that is Villa Gallici."
