Travelled to a small village called Puy Loubier to have dinner. Arrived early so drove around - What a spectacular mountain. Beautiful! No wonder painters come from so many countries. Worth a visit!

I travelled on a little local bus (no 110) from Aix to visit the villages at the foot of this wonderful mountain. Its presence is so important to Aix, being the mountain that Cézanne painted over 80 times. I believe there are trails but I...More

Hi We stayed at the Mercure hotel in Ste Victoire. Hotel was fine but we ate in Aix: the hotel restaurant is very expensive for what it is and there are no other cafes or restaurants in Ste Victoire.
