This enchanting house was about five minutes walk from my rented apartment. The July heat wave was full on, so it was a haven to visit the gardens and rest in the shade. I visited on the first Sunday of the month so the entrance and exhibition was free. The coloured glass exhibits may not be to everyone's taste, but... More

Nice garden to take a rest with small children, outside of the crowdy streets of Aix. Unfortunately the beautiful lawns cannot be touched and therefore you can only use the small gravel paths.

The gardens are lovely and very peaceful. It was nice to be able to just sit there and enjoy them. During the tour we were told the story about the house and it is very,very interesting. There are a lot of originals still there and it is a beautiful place. I enjoyed it very much. I am not sure if... More

For us, the garden was the highlight. It was a gentle and peaceful spot to spend early evenings. The building is a delight to look at inside and out, although there are some significant accessibility issues. The current exhibit of glass objects is modest in scope and maybe not to everyone's taste. Still, a visit is definitely worthwhile.

That's what this is, a small quiet place away from the masses of tourists in Aix old town. There are seats for sitting, a pretty house to look at, and plenty of shade so that you can enjoy a picnic.

We enjoyed the garden areas around the three storey home. We went inside for a squiz and really not much to see. In fact the interior appeared to be a bit of an art sales area. We sat in the little public garden towards town and enjoyed it very much. Bit of a romantic spot really.

The grounds are lovely to stroll around, relax, read a book. My rating is for the actual house, which is overpriced. A few pictures, not too much else, nothing of interest. There are better homes to visit. Note that there are no accessibility features. My husband did not go in because there were not railings on both sides of the... More

A very nice story about a XVII century aristocrat and the palace he built to his little friend makes attractive this place . In fact , the aristocrat never meet his lover here , and the building was finished as you can see it many years after by the painter Van Loo . Furnitures are not the original ones and... More
