A short walk from the centre of Aix - beautifully preserved house and studio. We were delighted to find the studio and garden very natural in appearance rather than "museum-like". A fascinating insight into Cezanne's life and work. A short walk further up the same road we easily found the terroir des artistes, with a fine view of Mont St... More

Not too far from the historic center of Aix, this is Cezanne's home and studio. The studio is furnished as he left it and the slide show provides a look at his work done there. The garden is also nice. Allow an hour for the visit.

A visit to Cezanne's atelier is an intimate glimpse into his final years as a painter, in which he did some of his largest and most ambitious works. Since I'm a painter, this visit was a no-brainer for me but my non-artist husband enjoyed it nearly as much. We did the English-language tour as mon mari ne parle pas francais,... More

The atelier was interesting, but I was a bit offended by the high price to see it. I was told by the woman who worked in the gift shop on the entrance floor that it is not intended for "museum goers," but for serious students of Cezanne, which was also a bit offensive.

What was there was good, but there was only one room of interest. The contents were informative and interesting, and the drawers full of informative and interesting memorabilia needed to be on display. The fact that Cezanne had used it as his workshop to create so much beauty is impressive. To be able to say we were there is good... More

The studio of Cezanne is a quaint little two storey building with not that much to see but for the lovers of Cezanne's work you will quite delighted to see the props used in some of his most famous paintings. You can see the deliberate north facing wall of windows built specifically for a dedicated artist. It allows one to... More

I'd heard and read beforehand that this was small and a bit of a walk out of town but to me that wasn't the point. Here, in Paul Cezanne's studio, it's as if he had just left for the day and you had called in to see if he was there. With all his things around you, and giving the... More

A hot hike up the hill took 10-15 min but the 'house' turned out to be just a studio and gift shop. It was interesting, and the outside and garden lovely, but I expected more.

Not being a Cezanne fan thought this was a bit overpriced at €8 each as there is only one room to visit - and an overgrown garden. However, if you are a fan I expect you would get a thrill from seeing things he actually used and articles he painted!

Felt this was a must bearing in mind this wasCezanne's town. Rather crowded on Sunday morning but little handsets with English version of the tour available to hire. If you are a Cezanne afficionado, this is a must.
