Aix-en-Provence: a picturesque town full of charm!
Aix-en-Provence, the town of King René of Anjou, is not only synonymous with gourmet treats thanks to its famous calissons, but also boasts plenty of cultural attractions. Between narrow streets, mansions with Baroque façades, palaces, fountains and small squares that play host to well-stocked markets, Aix-en-Provence is a pleasant town where you can enjoy strolling and learning about its history, inhabitants and monuments, such as the Tour de l’Horloge or the Saint-Saveur cathedral. Don’t forget to stop off at one of the café terraces on the unmissable Cours Mirabeau, Aix’s Champs-Elysées!
Aix and the Sainte-Victoire Mountain: in the footsteps of Paul Cézanne
A ten minute walk from the Villa Gallici, take the time to discover Cézanne’s studio and enter the artist's private world, where he set down his brushes and canvases in 1902 for the final four years of his life. Prolong your visit by following the “route de Cézanne” in the footsteps of the man who made the Sainte-Victoire Mountain his muse of shimmering colours as you learn about his life. Stop at Saint-Antonin-sur-Bayon to admire the exceptional views of the mountain that inspired the “father of modern art”.
The Villa Gallici: a Florentine villa in the heart of Provence
As you enter the grounds of the Villa Gallici, you will catch a hint of the scent of lavender, of course, but also the sweet fragrance of Italy. The architecture of the villa and its immaculate interior combine to create the feel of a Florentine palace in a Provençal setting. The decoration makes room for damask fabrics, velvets, canopy beds, bergère chairs and other period furniture. It is a place tinged with romanticism and preciosity, where you will want to stay to recharge your batteries in the light of the sun that never moves from the sky.
