Look, if walking into a Cezanne painting doesn't sound like your idea of a fun time, then you probably shouldn't be here or reviewing his home. That said, for all of us Cezanne geeks, OMG! You are standing IN Cezanne's actual studio! Staring at the very olive jars, teapots, basket, rattan chairs and tea towels that grace your favorite paintings--that... More

I left feeling a bit embarrassed for the French authorities that people should come from all over the world, pay 5.5€ and leave shaking their heads for what frankly, was a one room affair with a shabby garden. Compare to the value for money you get for your 6€ at the Picasso museum in Antibes and there is absolutely no... More

I did not realize that our tour/talk were not going to be translated into English, so I kept waiting…and waiting…and waiting for that to happen. Thus I missed out on REALLY a lot of the details that I was so hungry for, but that said…what an honor it was to be in Cezanne's studio!!! The wall of windows really spoke... More

It's a small place close to the center. It was very interesting to hear all about the history of the place and part of Cezanne's life, see some of the objects in his paintings. The garden around the house is nice and relaxing...but be prepared for mosquito bites.

It's a short walk from the old town to Cezanne's last studio, but be warned, it is all uphill. Not that we struggled, but in the soaring summer temperatures I can imagine this walk would be difficult for some. If you don't fancy it, the number 5 bus goes from the Fontaine de la Rotonde almost to the door. The... More

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
