The historic B&B is as fantastic in reality as it looks in the pictures. Laurence shared pictures of how she and her husband lovingly renovated...

The room is spacious, clean and very cosy. The place is 6 minutes away by car, from aix en provence old city. Breakfast is very good, and includes provence delicacies. And most importantly, Laurence, the owner, made our stay perfect.

Le Four des Banes is an amazing B&B just outside of Aix. Laurence was a superb hostess. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and beautiful as was the gardens and swimming pool--perfect way to end a long hot day touring around Provence in July. Laurence provided us with great recommendations for our day trips around Provence and evenings in Aix--she...

Laurence is the perfect hostess and speaks great English! We stayed 4 nights and the location is less than 10 minutes from Aix, and is quiet and comfortable. Laurence greeted us and oriented us to the beautiful, spacious accommodations, which are comfortable and well appointed. There is air conditioning, comfortable beds and a pool so it made for a relaxing...

I will first speak about the customer service. In my search to find accommodations in/around Aix, I happened upon Le Four des Banes through a B & B website. I made an inquiry and very shortly thereafter I received a reply from Laurence. Her English is excellent and which made corresponding with her quite painless. She responded to every inquiry...

We spent five nights at Le Four des Banes in early June 2016. Having visited Aix many times, but only as a day trip from somewhere else, we wanted to spend more time in this most beautiful small city, and we are so glad we stayed with Laurence in her airy, bright b&b just outside the city limits. Our huge...

I had a lovely 5 night stay with the accommodating 'Laurence' in this property. I was travelling alone with no car. The bus service was frequent and access to public transport into Aix was just at the end of the path. The bus too was very cheap. Laurence was a great host and breakfasts were delicious - the jams -...
