It was a super quick stop, a small park but very fun to stand in the same place that Cezanne painted some of his masterpieces. The terrain was beautiful and so was the view. At the top was some reproductions of his work and it was an added bonus for those of us that are not that knowledgable about his... More

Stop by on your journey from Cezanne's house to the Oppidum and enjoy the view and the history. There are multiple entrances and on a sunny day the view is remarkable.

It is worth the walk up to the park for the fabulous view of the Mont Sainte Victoire. And you can make a visit to the studio en route.

Known as Cezannes mountain. Strickingly beautiful! I unfortunately didn't have the time to walk the park this visit but enjoyed video at museum of Cezannes and experienced the area. Took photos of the mountain as driving by. Will return!

Panoramic view of Aix and the countryside. Ste. Victoire presented just as you know it from Cezanne's canvasses. Moving view whether clear or misty.

It is very hard to describe the feeling one has when you know you are standing on the same spot that Cezanne stood to paint his famous works of Mont Sainte Victoire. It really did make an impression. This is a lovely little park with spectacular views over to the mountain. So very glad we made the stop at the... More

We had visited Cezanne's studio just before and fired with enthusiasm wanted to walk a little further to see the views of the Montagne Ste Victoire. Sun beatingly hot and path uphill but well worth the climb. Some reviews we read beforehand said both the studio and the Terrain were badly signposted - we didn't have this problem but did... More

It is worth the walk up from the Atelier Cezanne. But be careful - it is easy to miss the little sign which points up a set of half hidden steps (just after the roundabout) and go a long distance out of your way. There are some interpretation signs at the viewpoint, and they show a variety of paintings of... More

Perfect place for a peaceful moment and/or better understand the fascination of Cezanne for La Sainte Victoire that at first looks rather simple if not boring...it is not. Everytime you'll walked there, she'll look different! perfect to complete the visit to Cezanne's atelier.

You get to see the room he worked in. It is a beautiful room and I enjoyed it very much. And that's it. This is what you get for 7 Euros. (photography not allowed)
