You'll be best situated in Aix. Try Luynes also but there are many other areas to try.
We love living in the centre of Aix. Our daughter takes the bus to school each day. Marseille is a big big city compared to Aix. It's not for everyone.My daughter is 12 now and we thought to live in Marseille initially - rentals are very well priced, but it's dangerous in some areas and personally not a place i'm keen to raise our daughter.Aix on the other hand is very chic and very charming. It is very international ( many expats ) and the shopping is more than good. When we miss seafood we drive to Marseille for lunch, dinner.. Marseille also great for shopping, very busy, just not good for teenage girls i'm afraid.
For more info contact Wendy Coret at IBS. She is responsible for the applications and will advise contacts for settling in, finding apartment etc.. Very supportive!
