After Cezanne's studio, walk up the hill (as he did daily) to this corner where he painted every day overlooking the city and the mountain. There are some samples of his paintings with introductions here so you can compare his paintings to the views you are seeing. Great walk.

Nice, clean park about 1km north of Atelier Cezanne. Definitely worth the hike up to it. We were the only people in the park, surprisingly. It provides excellent views of Mt Ste Victoire and the landscaping/foliage are kept up well

Absolute beauty! Walk up to it! Astonishing view on mountain on a nice day! Colors in Provence are somehow stronger on such clear days, and you can see why all the great painters stayed in this region-specially Cezanne, painting mountain on so much occasion! Just enjoy the view and smell and color. In summer take some water with you!

It is well worth making the effort to walk further up the road from Cezanne's studio to the Terrain des Peintures. From this location you get excellent views of the peak, Mont-Ste-Victoire, which featured in many of his paintings. It is a peaceful location that is nice to linger in and few tourists bother to go this far up the... More

Beautiful views of Sainte-Victoire if you have lots of time in Aix to go for long walks (I was here for a two week research trip)

Walk up the hill from Cezanne's studio and you will find (unmarked) a stone trail that leads to a clearing where you can see the landscapes that Cezanne painted (especially Sainte Victoire). Included in the clearing are replicas of the 12 plus iterations of the mountain that PC painted. If you can mind meld you can go back to late... More

It was a super quick stop, a small park but very fun to stand in the same place that Cezanne painted some of his masterpieces. The terrain was beautiful and so was the view. At the top was some reproductions of his work and it was an added bonus for those of us that are not that knowledgable about his... More

Stop by on your journey from Cezanne's house to the Oppidum and enjoy the view and the history. There are multiple entrances and on a sunny day the view is remarkable.

It is worth the walk up to the park for the fabulous view of the Mont Sainte Victoire. And you can make a visit to the studio en route.
