Cezanne's studio museum is best enjoyed when it is quiet if one is fortunate, the studio has great atmosphere and one can almost feel in the presence of Cezanne. The grounds offer inspiration to paint and offer a tranquil setting for a coffee from the subtle cafe.

This is bit further away from the centre than expected, and also up a hill (quite tiring in the summer heat!). We hadn't quite anticipated that it was only the one room and whilst it was really interesting that they had a lot of his original equipment and still life objects, it wasn't quite worth our trip all the way...

Only one room, the studio is open. Take the audio guide otherwise the room just looks like an old atelier.

While I appreciate cezanne's work, I am usually not going out of my way to find it. this preserved studio, however, was simply fantastic to give you a windo into the artist that is tangible....congrats to those who saved and preserved it. My wife and I used to look at still lifes of fruit and wonder why it looked like... More

We went with a group so we had a local guide provide the background and history of Cezanne's life as well as his time in the Atelier. It has his artifacts there to see. It may be worthwhile primarily with a guide who can provide the history and background.

I hiked up to the location on a somewhat warm day in June 2016. It was a nice uphill walk to get there, which resulted in an easy, downhill walk on the way back. The garden is currently very interesting to stroll around and feels somewhat rustic. It’s sort of like a forest with meandering paths, not a floral garden.... More

Everyone who like his paintings should see this peaceful place. Beautiful view and house. It was a spiritual experience.

Although it's basically a one-room tour, I highly recommend going if you like Cezanne's work. To be in the room and see the objects he painted was magical. But you'll have to use your imagination to see what it was like before the city and vegetation encroached on the atelier. Some atelier tours are in English, so watch the time... More

We walked from the center of Aix to the Atelier and that was a bit of a hike. The building was charming and the staff spoke excellent English, but the tour of the room Cezanne used was conducted entirely in French. Our guide handed us a large, two-page English translation of the points she discussed, but it was obvious that... More

Cezanne's house is halfway up a hill on a busy road that looks as if it has nothing else on it - so you have to persevere! Once there, there are pretty peaceful gardens to explore and the room where Cezanne painted. You can view his paintings on a TV screen and then spot the real items in the room... More
