I would not bother with the "guided tour". English is my first language but the female guide although sweet and enthusiastic was completely unintelligible. I can’t imagine how the other Europeans and Japanese could follow a word of it.

We visited with the english tour and while we enjoyed seeing the artefacts there was very little else from the tour. The gardens are overgrown and not much outside the building to experience. Gift shop is not worth the effort. Staff was a bit rude as well.

We visited four separate sites related to Cezanne in Aix – each illustrates a different aspect of his life and work and together they provide great insight into his paintings – among the best we got for any artist in our trip through southern France. The sites are the Atelier (studio), Jas de Bouffan (childhood and early adult home), Terrain... More

It was a treat to see Cezanne's workshop. It had items he used on a daily basis, clothing, crockery he used in his paintings. We missed him but the devoted staff carefully took great pains to maintain the workshop well.

Not much to see unless you are in love with Cezzane.. otherwise it isn't much at all. And it's tough to find.. Walked up and down the hill several times before finding it hidden within so many shrubs and trees. We were charged a small amount, walked in and out within 30 seconds. blekh.

This little gem is hidden away amongst modern development in what's now suburbs (not easy to find and hard to park - there's a car park at the bottom of the hill but you can't get in with a roof box, but we found a place on a street nearby) but once through the gate it's easy to imagine what...

Wow, spent the day in Aix-en-Provence and saw this place in the guide book. It's a little bit of a walk from the center of town, so be sure everyone in your group is okay to walk. When you get there, it's like you finally feel you are in Provence. Trees hide this beautiful old house, where you can visit... More

Very interesting in-depth visit to Cezanne's studio. The English extremely fluent and guide had an incredible range of info.

Even if you are not an Art fan you must go there. The atmosphere is beautiful and it seems to see the artist still working there.

It's one room. A visit will require a mere 15 minutes of your time. But you will see the palette, the easel, the coat and the props of one of the authentic geniuses of European art, pretty much as he left them upon his death in 1906.
