Cézanne’s atelier is just north of the "boulevard extérieur", that’s to say the one-way ring road that encircles the city centre. It’s quite impossible to park there so you’d better leave your car at the Pasteur parking or nearby (pay and display parking) and walk about 500 metres. The atelier is behind a garden gate on the left as you... More

The Cezanne studio in Aix en Provence is delightful about a half mile to a mile walk up a slight hill from the center of Aix. I went in December and there were few tourists. I highly recommend Aix without the crowds. The docent was extremely well educated, lively, personable and spoke excellent English. It became very clear how much... More

I walked to here from center of Aix en Provence and back. Very pleasant walk through town and up the hill. Being in this house and in Cezanne's studio made me appreciate/understand his paintings much more. Be sure to walk around the garden as well. The gift shop is small but very nice.

I walked to the Atelier from the Renaissance Hotel. The walk is pleasant and seemed safe. The last bit is up a slightly steep hill, but you can enjoy the views. The Atelier has been wonderfully preserved. It's like Cezanne just stepped out and may return at any moment. The exterior of the building is surrounded with lush trees and... More

A wonderful feeling to stand in the master's studio, you can still smell the scent of oil and turpentine. Many of the objects seen in his paintings are displayed in the studio.

Visiting the studio of Cezzane is like going back in time and seeing his world through his eyes. His gardens are lovely and peaceful and worth the visit alone. It's a most uncommon experience and should not be missed if you love Cezanne's work or Art in general.

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
