Out and about nearby

Aix-en-Provence is an ancient town reflecting the history of Provence through the centuries and is an attractive, regional, cultural and artistic hub. Museums in the town include the Granet Museum of painting, sculpture and archaeology, the Hotel de Caumont, an 18th century gem which hosts two major annual exhibitions of painting, and Cézanne’s studio. The main thoroughfare is the Cours Mirabeau, a boulevard lined with shops and restaurants shaded by tall plane trees. The Cathedral of Saint-Sauveur has Gothic influences and wonderful carved doors. The traditions and history of Aix can be seen at the Musée Estienne de Sain Jean, housed in a 17th century mansion. In the town centre is the Place de l’Hotel de Ville, with the town hall dating from the 15th century, an old corn exchange and a fountain with a Roman column topped with a globe encased in golden laurel. In the Terrain des Peintres, you can view the famous Montagne Sainte Victoire seeking the same inspiration that Cézanne found here for his work. Three days a week there is a market on the Cours Mirabeau which combines local food products, fruit, vegetables, garments and artisan goods. Nearby you have the glorious landscape of Provence, including the Luberon, the calanques, and the Camargue. The papal city of Avignon can be reached by TGV train in about 20 minutes.
