This spot of interest to Cezanne lovers -- they have set up the one-room studio to display some of Cezanne's tools, paint smocks, etc, but it's a 10-minute visit (none of his art, about which they are honest in their publicity) and a 20-minute walk from town. Go if you want to get a feel for how the artist worked... More

You need to be a Cezanne fan to get this place. Just walking into the single room and actually seeing the small statue that he placed in his work gave me shivers. His coats and painting satchel were goose bumps for me. The english visit was held at 5pm each day and you can book at the swish tourist office... More

We took the number 5 bus (every 15 mins from the Rotundo )as it was too hot to walk. If you get off two stops after Cezanne you can walk up the steps to the Terrace off Painters for Cezanne's view--if you carry on to the Ovido stop you can get an even better view of Monte Saint Victoire---and then...

I can understand why visitors may be disappointed in a visit to Cezanne's last studio. It is small, you may have to wait, your visit may be of short duration and it may be crowded. Much will depend on how you view Cezanne and how you feel about making a pilgrimage to a site that will be adored by his... More

It is a wonderful gift that paul cezanne's last studio has been made available to the public, and maintained as well as it has been. I am inspired by this magical space, by its huge windows, the easel, the chair, the coats and hats, and, most of all, by the spirit of the studio itself. On my first visit, several... More

As an art enthusiast, especially the impressionist works of the Provençal artists, seeing Cezanne's studio was a real treat. Imagining him working in that studio, with the gorgeous gardens surrounding him was a surreal experience, and I am so glad I walked the long walk up the path to find it! I visited in 2009, not 2013, but trip advisor... More

We hiked to Atelier Cezanne and we loved seeing his last studio and garden. We hiked uphill to Terrain des Peintres where Cezanne and others painted Mt.Ste-Victoire,then uphill to even better views and walked along gardens and could smell the scents of herbs of provence growing wild,and view vineyards and olive farms. What a beautiful day.it was like walking in... More

Complete rip off. Just one artificial room with absolutly nothing to see. The window where Cezanne got his inspiration is entirely blocked by trees.

Expensive entry fee to see a dusty studio. Very little in the way of artwork, and the trees blocked much of the view from the studio windows, which supposedly served as an inspiration to the artist.
