The Manor of Jas de Bouffan

Aix en Provence - Bastide du Jas de Bouffan - Guided tour - Closed for renovation until 2019

The Manor is closed until December 31st 2018.

For lovers of Cézanne in France and around the world, as well as for the residents of Aix and Provence, the Jas de Bouffan estate – never before opened to the general public – is a fascinating attraction, a place which retains an aura of mystique despite its direct links with so many of the painter's celebrated works.

The XVIII century mansion belonged to Cézanne's family between 1859 and 1899.

At the age of 20, Paul Cézanne started out painting on the walls of the living room and outside in the park. A guided visit all around will let you see the different points of view taken by Cézanne himself while painting. As in the oval living room, a virtual recollection of his works can be seen.

Getting here
Coaches: drop-off at entrance to the property on Route de Galice, then parking at Maurice David stadium. Bus No 8, Corsy stop (more information www.aixenbus.fr).
