Shopping in Aix-en-Provence by Anais et Pedro

Aix-en-Provence, a small town not far from Marseille where everything can be done on foot, which is pretty cool! We are going to take you on a tour round the quaint cobbled streets to discover some great shops and show you some of our favourite places to spend a lovely day in the sun! Don’t forget to look up because there is some outstanding architecture to be seen here.

Alpilles on the wine route

If you're visiting the Alpilles, then take advantage of the opportunity to travel the Provençal wine route. Go out to meet passionate winegrowers and their exceptional, often organic, wines. You'll get to try artisanal jams in Maussane before venturing onwards to Mas de Gourgonnier in the Baux-de-Provence appellation. Next, head to Domaine de Vallongue and its broken stones (IGP Alpilles). Le Lézard Gourmand will make a refreshing change for lunch before an afternoon spent at Domaine Valdition with its gourmet on-site shop.

Arts and craftsmanship in Provence

To travel around Provence is a chance to visit extraordinary sites, discover new cities and explore the countryside. But it is also an opportunity to meet passionate craftspeople and have unique experiences, like making your own calisson sweets, delving into the secrets of how soap is produced in Marseille or admiring the work of 'santonniers', makers of traditional figurines. For a sightseeing holiday with a difference, look no further than vibrant and authentic Provence!
