A very interesting place to visit . The Atelier, surrounded by a shady garden, is full of Cezanne's possessions from smocks, to easels, letters to and from other artists and photographs. interesting design feature is a tall thin door to allow large paintings to be moved with ease.

Those who admire Cezanne should visit the Atelier. However the employee at the shop can't communicate in very very basic english. She was not interested in being helpful at all. Furthermore she was actually very rude. Upon my stating several times that I couldn't speak french she asked my country in french which i understood. When I told her my... More

There is nothing much to see, I certainly wouldn't have come if I had known as there is only one room!

It is always interesting to get the chance of getting the real feel of how a great artist has lived and worked. Big thanks to those generous Americans for saving the house.

Cezanne built the studio for himself late in life and it has been preserved as he left it. It is very revealing to be in the working studio of one of the greats, surrounded his possessions. In Cezanne's time the studio was well out in the country, but now it is on the outskirts of town. It is possible to... More

Cezanne's atelier is wonderful. It's as if he has just stepped out of the room. You enter the house through the unpretentious gateway in the wall, the studio is upstairs with the original furniture, easels and painting equipment. The room has a huge window on the north side as it was designed by Cezanne to his own specifician. I loved... More

Great to give a feel of the environment in which he worked. No finished work there. Good for a quick visit but needs to be combined with a gallery to get a feel of his paintings.

We walked from our apartment in Aix to see where Cezanne lived. Yes it is just one room, with a shop below. When we were there we encountered the full force of a Japanese Tourist Tornado! So no solitude, just click click click, buy buy buy. The garden is very disappointing, so not really worthwhile. The terrain de peinteurs is... More

Pluses- you're in the studio of a master painter. You can imagine and really appreciate the setting. It's beautiful and interesting. Outside is cool and pleasant for a rest under the trees. Parking at Pasteur is convenient. Minuses- couldn't understand the oral presentation, thought the printed card could have included more. Thank god we arrived right on 2 and went... More

If you are travelling on a budget know that the entrance fee is E6 per person and basically this is to see one room in which you are not allowed to take any pictures. Cezanne had the place purpose built and it is exciting to catch a whiff of oil paint and to see some of the objects in his... More
