Planning a weekend in Aix-en-Provence? Stroll the city’s streets peacefully, take a look at the city’s Gaude and Mignarde chateaux to learn more about the architecture of 18th century homes. Take a breath of fresh air in their gardens and vineyards and then in the Jardin d’Albertas in the city center, with its statues and fountains. The Jardin d’Albertas is classified as an historic monument and is a stone’s throw from your hotel. Revitalize yourself at the Sextius thermal baths, dating from 122 B.C. They’re supplied with naturally hot water which has various virtues coming from a source in the heart of Provence.
A one-week stay in the region of Paul Cézanne will transport you between art and nature. Enjoy the comfort of one of the Campanile hotels in Aix-en-Provence to go and explore the city, its history and its surroundings. Plan to visit a few museums, including the Fondation Vasarely featuring modern art collections that are unique in the world and Cézanne’s workshop. A Cézanne tour will take you in the footsteps of the cult places the artist painted. The Paths of History walk will introduce you to local ancient heritage and foodies will be enchanted by a wine tour to discover southern varieties of grapes.
Natural richness and cultural diversity make Aix-en-Provence and its region an ideal place for a family stay. All tours in the region are a fun way to improve your knowledge while strolling the promenades. The Calanques and the Côte d'Azur are close by and are opportunities for sports and water getaways: scuba diving, boating, canoeing, and more. The richness of local folklore is discovered in museums, especially the Musée de Tapisserie. Various traditional festivals will enliven your stay, in particular the fairs and markets. The Campanile restaurant will be ideal for enjoying many emblematic local gastronomic specialties.
