Charming 18th Century house in middle of Aix.to enjoy visiting. Gardens are a beauty. Watch out as house shuts between 12.30 and 1.30pm! Interesting mix of period and contemporary pictures on display.

The gardens are lovely. The house looks nice. Most of the art being exhibited in the house detracts from the building and grounds, although one piece was interesting. The attendant was very unpleasant -- a man who thought his only purpose was to collect fees impolitely.

The garden is beautiful, but going inside is not worth it! Make sure to stroll around the garden only.

I lived in Aix en Provence and would visit this little garden often, just to sit in the sun and enjoy the flowers and building. It is a quiet and pretty spot.

It is probably much nicer in summer. Hope there are more flowers though. A good place to relax overall.

Gives a snapshot of architecture and furniture for that period plus had a very modern textile art display there. Beautiful grounds and nice place to sit, people watch and feel very French!

Very pretty exterior and garden but poky and of little of interest inside. The gardien on the first floor was extraordinarily rude, shouting at us because we accidentally trod on the carpet.

We visited as we noticed the sign a number of times on the way from our apartment. It was a tranquil sanctuary in an otherwise busy town environment. Furthermore people actually seemed to respect rather than try to change that! The garden is well set out and maintained, though the time of year and weather made this more challenging. Just... More

Though we’ve been to Aix before, we’d never visited here. One of the ‘problems’ in Aix is that there’s almost nowhere to sit and watch the world pass by: of course there are cafes, etc. So, we looked at the map and realised that there was green space as well as a building here, and it was only a few...

We loved the garden of this beautiful house. It was thoughtfully laid out with areas for children and for dogs. Such a contrast to the crowded streets of the old town. However, the interior was totally spoiled by an exhibition of some of the ugliest modern art you are ever likely to see. The juxtaposing of exquisite interiors and antique... More
