In the heart of Provence, art and life’s finer things !

City of water, city of art and history, university town opened to the world, this one-time capital of Provence, criss-crossed with pedestrian streets boasting richly ornamented ochre façades, is a stroller’s paradise: café terraces and restaurant on the Cours Mirabeau, lively markets under plane trees on Place Richelme and Place des Prêcheurs, fountains and architectural treasures...

Aix is a city of culture par excellence hosting the annual International Festival of Lyric Arts and offering the best live music and dance performances at the Grand Théâtre de Provence and the Pavillon Noir housing the Ballet Preljocaj.Musée Granet is, as always, the museum dedicated to Cézanne.

A bit further beyond, the colours of time give Sainte-Victoire Mountain its fickle, mysterious personality.
