“a love nest for garden lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I loved the gardens and the typical architecture of this simple pavilion. A low-key place to stop for a break in the sun.

“Pavillion de Vendome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Very beautiful spot to just sit and absorb the atmosphere of the building and gardens. Close to the Adagio Apartments.

“snooty gardien”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

the man on the door knew enough English to demand we give him 7 euros in change instead of 10 euro note, but then demanded we speak French. The roms were completely obscured by an exhibition of modern works. The Pavillon is worth seeing from the outside, but don't pay to go in

“Relaxing”

Great place for an outside picnic, walk or just a perfect place to sit in silence. It's quaint and peaceful.

“Beautiful grounds and fascinating story behind the museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

The Pavillion de Vendome is a wonderful little oasis on the edge of vieux Aix. Surrounded by a wall, the gardens are peaceful and they are nicely maintained with benches under shade trees. The house, built in 1665, has a fascinating story behind it, having been home to aristocrats and an artisit's studio, culminating with a "makeover" by Henri Dobler into his "dream house". Inside the furnishings, art and architecture are wonderful period pieces. Dobler himself was a unique character. During our visit there was a special exposition on his life, his renovation of the property, and his own art that included watercolors, furniture and musical pieces.
