Frédéric Jouffret bought Hôtel Maison Arquier in 2018 when he was looking for a new business project. “The hotel is something of an institution in Aix-en-Provence,” explains the young hotelier, who is a renowned Aix restauranteur. Built on the banks of the River Arc, this former paper mill was made into lodgings when the Roquefavour Aqueduct was built in 1842, and run by the descendants of the nobleman Sieur Arquier for 160 years. Now, Frédéric and his team have made the hotel over completely. The renovations have created a kind of “Provencal tavern that encourages you outside,” says Frédéric. It’s a lovely place to spend a few days relaxing, or to run business meetings in the stunning Aix countryside. The new 3-star Hôtel Maison Arquier has 18 fully renovated rooms, a restaurant serving local dishes and a meeting room.

Tips from your hotelier


The Roquefavour Aqueduct is 82 metres tall, 375 metres long and famous for being the world’s biggest stone aqueduct. It was built in the 19th century and is the showpiece of the Marseille Canal. You can go on a short, easy walk (about 1 hour) to gain some height and enjoy views of the aqueduct from above.

Tips from your hotelier


In the north of the old town, Aix Cathedral and its cloister stand proud as jewels of religious architecture. The site has been reworked over the centuries and boasts beautiful Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque elements. The oldest section is the baptistery, which was constructed in the 5th century. It is surrounded by 8 columns, which are older still, dating from the 2nd century.
