Culture in the heart of Aix-en-Provence

Your day of Aixois culture kicks off with a flourish at Cézanne's studio before you head off to see some of Aix's most iconic sites such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum. When you need a breather, enjoy a stroll around Place d'Albertas and its fountain and the area around Aix Cathedral. When you're feeling hungry, we have an excellent and inexpensive recommendation for you.

Arles by Ma cigale est fantastique

Ancient Arles, Roman Arles, Hail Ceasar! The entire town is an open air museum! Arles, Capital of the Camargue region, is a captivating town. It possesses an extraordinary wealth of cultural and archaeological heritage, if we add to this the extraordinary handicraft and designer shops, a day would never be enough to see it all. I will, however, try to give you a glimpse of our beautiful town, so follow me!

The many faces of Camargue

See the many faces of Camargue on a tour that promises a refreshing change of scenery away from the usual tourist sites! Visit the Langlois Bridge, made famous in several paintings by Van Gogh, before exploring the ecosystem in Le Vigueirat. Then make your way to the Tour Saint-Louis and onwards to Napoleon beach where you can try your hand at kite surfing. In the afternoon, head to Domaine de la Palissade, an ideal destination to observe Camargue's wildlife. La Chassagnette in Arles is our recommendation for dinner where the original menu is prepared by a top chef.
