Holiday home rental with pool
Aix en Provence
Holiday home in Provence
Superb 19th century Aix-en-Provence bastide renovated in 2021, which has kept the charm of the old while having modern comforts. Tomettes, travertine, exposed beams are mixed with a contemporary decoration with a mix of country chic, art deco and even street art. La Roucoulade welcomes you in an enchanting setting with a garden and swimming pool with a view of the mill, a fountain with vine leaves, a unique sculpture of Fanny's buttocks, and a charming terrace under century-old hackberry trees.
The 2000 m2 garden with its 11 x 3.80 m heated swimming pool allows you to enjoy the southern sun in an exceptional setting.
For lunches, aperitifs, dinners under the sign of conviviality, the Ofyr barbecue awaits you, and if it is too windy, a gas plancha is available
A family home
The house is the ideal place to gather, with 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms with fireplaces. Everyone has their own space and therefore keeps their privacy, the basis for a successful holiday.
There is even a playroom which can be used as a dormitory for happy children.
La Roucoulade is at the foot of the typical Provençal village of Ventabren, offering the possibility to visit the historical centre, to access the sports activities of the plateau, with a breathtaking view of the Etang de Berre, while having access to the hill for hiking or nature jogging, all without taking the car
The location remains central as nothing prevents you from visiting Aix-en-Provence (15 min), Salon de Provence (20 min) or Marseille (30 min), all within 15 minutes of the Aix TGV station and Marignane airport.
The first beaches are 30 minutes away.

Word of Roucouleurs
What can I say... a moment of family disconnection! We were 10 and stayed 15 days at La Roucoulade in its entirety (gite + house) and the experience was remarkable! A great family moment where everyone is together: granny and grandchildren. La Roucoulade is tastefully decorated, everything is well thought out, nothing is missing (for the youngest as well as for the oldest), even the cicada song is well regulated! We especially like the swimming pool and its view of the unmissable mill and the pretty village of Ventabren. Many thanks to Clémence, Guillaume, Gaspard and Toscane.
I rented the gite and the house for a long weekend, nothing to say except that it was great, a little secret address not to be shared too much which will quickly fall victim to its success. The house is top, Clemence and her family take care of all the logistics with a big smile, I particularly recommend bringing the chef Emilie Cadeau for an exceptional meal. My 2 favourite areas are the pool and lunch under the hackberry trees. A house for a group of friends or family with children. I will return. Thank you for a wonderful stay
Thank you so much to Clémence and her family for making this place an unforgettable memory for our 40th birthday! Everyone was charmed by the setting, the beauty and the ease of living in this magnificent house. The gite is very welcoming. It was very appealing... We will be back!
We had a great weekend in Clemence's house. A quiet house, very comfortable and with everything you need to feel at home. Special mention to the decoration that we loved! An ideal place to recharge your batteries and have a good time. A big thank you to Clémence for her great welcome and her availability. We will be back with pleasure!
We spent a weekend with friends at La Roucoulade and it was great!
Clemence knew how to offer us a tailor-made stay by advising us on service providers who prepared our meals and everything was delicious!
Be sure Clemence will do her best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Thank you again for your advice and your help in organizing this weekend 🙂
A week ago, we celebrated the baptism of our daughter at La Roucoulade, surrounded by our family and friends... we will keep extraordinary memories, and the enchanting setting of the place is for a lot of it! The large table in the shade of the hackberry trees, the bowling green, the superb swimming pool, and the exceptional view on the mill: the garden is ideal to welcome a beautiful party, with the sound of cicadas!
The interior decoration is just as wonderful. Clémence has taken care of every detail, and the equipment is of great quality.
The location of the bastide is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the beautiful village of Ventabren, and easily accessible from the Aix-en-Provence TGV station and the airport.
Clémence was very available and attentive to help us in the preparations, and her welcome was very warm.
Thank you very much Clémence, we had a fantastic weekend at La Roucoulade!
