Paul Cezanne, considered the the father of modern painting, spent his boyhood in Aix where his father owned the only bank in the town. After the death of his mother in 1897, Cezanne built a Provençal home with a massive garden north of the city where his upstairs studio could have unobstructed light. He called the studio the Lauves and... More

There is much to do in Aix and if you are wise you will do it by foot. The Cezanne walk is very informative and enjoyable - and if you are enthusiastic takes you out of town a bit for a wonderful view of the valleys.

Great place to stop while going to or returning from the Oppidum d'Entremont. Make sure you also tour the park between these two sites where Cezanne painted his famous Mont Sainte-Victoire

His atelier and home in Aix. In a residential area amidst trees and a lovely garden is this very modest house. The atelier itself is the center of attraction. All his belongings and his stories....

We were in AeP and so we meandered up the hill. Glad its survived, glad we went, but I think it is more for the fans of Cezanne. You basically visit his studio and while there isn't much else, I would recommend that you go for the tour. I say this because without out guide's insights and knowledge, it would... More

The atelier is a short uphill walk from the old town, but worth it for those who want to really see how and where a great artist worked. The staff are extremely well informed and can provide many insights into the life and work of the artist.

I saw no angle, edge or reason to justify a visit to Cezanne´s Atelier. More enlightening would be to see an exposition of his works . To praise his objects seem to be a fetishist practise and unless you have specific reasons to peruse trough his belongings, I can see a better use of a tourist time

You really must go there. First, it's only a mile from the center of Aix so you can walk. Second, it is the home and studio of the father of modern art. Even if you aren't crazy about art, it is still a great visit. You see the actual studio where Cezanne took Impressionism to new heights and laid the... More
