As usual... French style... You can reach this place by car. You have to park in the only parking available at a few hundred meters. Then you have to face an uphill (not too difficult) and you'll find the entrance to the Atellier Cezanne. House surrounded by green; a lovely garden that goes around and then, after paying the ticket,... More

A great place to learn more about Van Gogh and his tortured life. A great place to buy a painting done by asylum patients.

You seldom get to see an artist's studio as intact as this one is. It is so neat to get a glimpse into Cezanne's life here in Aix. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the gift shop was fun. If you are in Aix and care anything about art you have to go here.

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
