Aix-en-Provence : city of fountains, city of Art


You will enjoy Aix's harmonious association of its rich historic past and cultural present as you stroll through the streets. The undisputed charm of this provençal city dates back to 1st B.C to its Roman founders and abundance of thermal springs. Music, painting, literature and architecture, are a part and parcel of this refined city of King René. Aided by a gentle climate and a multitude of attractions, each day you will discover a few of the 101 aixoise fountains, the charming 'Bastide' mansions in hidden inner city lanes, and the Mazarin quarter where time seems to have stood still.

Around Aix-en-Provence, the aixoise countryside is a mosaic of colors and scents : the markets brim with local produce against an imposing backdrop of Mont Sainte-Victoire. Travel to the mountain via the Cézanne road and be enticed by vineyards glowing in the Mediterranean sun, explore villages perched on hilltops, or archaeological vestiges of the 'Oppidum of Entremont'.
