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)

A really peaceful place to sit and savour the views and surroundings. Walk about 15 minutes uphill from Atelier Cezanne. Don't miss the sign to Terrain des Peintres (you don't want to walk any further than necessary up that hill) I think it is just about opposite the Maison de Retraite Paul Cezanne. The steps look as though they are... More

The terrain is a nice park. However, all the plants have well grown to the point that it's almost impossible to see the mountain St Victoire....It's well marked but if the grounds can be better maintained the place may feel slightly more than a small park...

You have to walk 15 minutes uphill from Cézanne's atelier (another great place to visit) to reach a place where Cézanne painted again and again his beloved Montagne Sainte-Victoire. Walking can be a little tough on a hot day (no shadows) but you can comfort yourself knowing that Cézanne climbed the route with all his painting equipment twice a day... More

I didn't have a "Cezanne's Footsteps" map from the tourist office and this is not on the regular city map. A little research told me to keep walking past Cezann'es atelier. I walked quite a bit until I even saw the first sign. Once I got there, the park was tiny and quiet, in a pretty neighborhood of homes. I... More

My wife and I went here during our honeymoon stay in Aix. I wanted to go to the park and experience the view and the history of this place. It was quite a hike up (my wife wasn't so happy about that) but I think that it was well worth the effort. We went in the afternoon and there was... More

You shouldn't miss it if you like Cézanne or art in general and it's the perfect complement to your trip to the master's atelier (which I also recommend). It's only a few minutes enjoyable walk from there and you get to breathe in the full atmosphere of the time (with a little bit of imagination...). The park itself is very... More
