Meeting place between a lush and sunny nature and a rich heritage of history and traditions, the Aix-en-Provence is also an ideal base for visiting all the Bouches-du-Rhône ...
For culture, the Aix offers beautiful surprise. Lovers of painting will follow the footsteps of Paul Cézanne, born in Aix, passing by the Granet Museum which houses several works by the artist, the museum-workshop Lauves, and all the sites that inspired the artist like Tholonet and its castle or Careers Bibémus. They can also see the castle of Vauvenargues, which belonged to Picasso, whose park is home to the tomb of the artist.
The cities of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille are of course perfect venues for all heritage lovers. Museums and historical monuments abound and should occupy the days of the most insatiable.
Those who prefer less busy cities meanwhile find their happiness in the very pretty village of the Aix, like the medieval village of Jouques.
Natural side, the essential site of the region is certainly the Grand Site Sainte Victoire, between the Durance valley and the valley of the Arc, which includes the lakes and Zola Bimont, and of course the Mountain Saint Victoire . This mountain that Cezanne was particularly attached, offers hiking trails and climbing sites incomparable.
During your stay in Aix-en-Provence, you will be as close to the Luberon and its magnificent landscapes.
