This tiny museum is a preservation of Cezanne's work place including personal effects such as clothes , personal letters and his tools of trade. Staff give very good explanations in several languages. It is well worth the visit but suggest you get transport unless you are a very keen walker. It is a real hike from the town of Aix

Chance to get an insight into Cezanne's work by peering into his private atelier. The explanation in English was fine, although it seemed a bit mechanical and did not show many of the objects on display in the atelier. It was ok but surely not excellent.

Situated just outside the city centre his studio offers a simple but thought provoking opportunity to think about how and when the artist worked, and see the kind of studio he created for himself. There is a small entrance gallery and shop downstairs while the studioo itself is upstairs and is a single room with one huge window and two... More

A most "Un disneyfied," time travel into the life of the beloved artist. It's an easy, approximately 15 minute, sun-filled walk from the tourist office. The small staff is multilingual, charming & enthusiastic about all objects Cezanne.

Definitely one of the highlights of my visit to the south of France. If you're interested in the arts, it's a must. I thought the way they kept Cezanne's pots, brushes, etc in the same manner that he had them was marvelous. You can almost see how he painted each object. The garden is a nice place to sit and...

Have been to few sites in my time and was in and out of here in 15 minutes and was that was taking it very easy. Having expended €6 per head, for family of five, for the privelege. It failed to evoke any emotion in me. Signs & parking were poorly shown close to the site itself and one could... More

See where Cezanne painted and even some of the objects he did actually paint. Relaxing, chilled out. Easiest to find using Google maps on the phone. If walking up hill is difficult for you then you can get a number 12 bus here or use the diabline http://www.la-diabline.fr/circuits_diablines_aix-2014.pdf

I must state from the start that we visited the house independently. This is, therefore, not a review of the guided tour or workshop. The house is well signed from the centre and looks , on the map, close to the recommended car park. In reality, it is quite a hike, up hill, and the signage seems to get less... More

Just being in the studio and seeing the actual objects which were depicted in Cezanne's paintings was a very moving experience.

We pre-booked tickets for the workshop tour and visit to the Carriere de Bibemus via the tourist office and the following day made our way on foot to the atelier, quite a feat in 30 degree heat! Be prepared for a relatively steep climb up a long road, but it's worth the effort. (Directions are a little confusing as signs... More
