The lady who rented me her apartment in AIX told me to definitely go to this cheese shop as we walked around her neighborhood after I picked up the keys. I'm so happy she pointed this shop out to me. The gal I spoke with was so helpful - including speaking with me in English - and talked in detail about their cheese offerings. She took time with me and made me feel as if I was her only customer in the world. Ok, about the cheeses: just wow ... I picked up four different selections and over-indulged in cheese during my time in this beautiful village ... and I'm happy I did. …

It was absolutely appalling the rudeness and discourtesy of the lady owner of this shop. I was stunted and chocked !!!

Delightful cheese shop. Very helpful staff. Huge selection. Well located on Rue Italie with many more beautiful food shops along the street.

One of the joys of living in France is eating French cheese, and one of the best places to buy French cheese is Fromagerie Savelli, just beside the daily market on the place Richelme. Not just French cheese, either - the best imported cheeses are available here too, selected with equal care: manchego curado to die for, and in the winter, impeccable farmhouse Stilton. Having lived in Paris for 10 years before moving to Aix, I can honestly say that there isn’t a cheese shop in the capital that beats it. The selection of local goat and sheep cheeses is wide and varied, seasonality is always respected, and advice and recommendations are always available, with a smile. Not a shop to go to if you’re in a hurry, the pleasure of the place, the smells, the atmosphere, watching the locals choose their cheeses, learning from them – all that takes time, and it’s worth it! Also worth knowing is that cheeses can be packed in air-tight conditions for taking home, if you’re not lucky enough to live just round the corner. Closed Sunday and Monday…
