Aix-en-Provence, wine and gastronomy – exploring the Durance
Aix-en-Provence is a city of art, a city surrounded by the sea and salt-water lagoons, but it is also a city shaped by the land. Its vineyards, olive oil and local specialities are all a testament to this. Discover the secret to chocolate-making at Chocolaterie Puyricard and head off to meet passionate winegrowers. The terrace at La Flambée du Lubéron on the banks of the Durance will make a perfect spot for lunch! Make sure you don't miss Château Paradis in Puy-Sainte-Réparade before setting off to Jouques where you'll get to visit three exceptional estates (Château Revelette, Domaine la Chapelle Saint-Bacchi and Domaine Villemus) which all promote organic wine production.
What can you do in a day in Aix-en-Provence? The answer is in this tour which combines history and Provençal art de vivre. A good place to start is the town's farmers market which sells nothing but fresh produce. Follow this with a tour of the charming old town with its atlantes and decorative wrought-iron before wandering along Cours Mirabeau and its fountains. After stopping for lunch at Mickael Féval's gourmet restaurant, anyone who loves art and architecture should head to the Mazarin district for its sumptuous mansions and the Granet Museum. After that, you'll be ready to escape to the peace and calm around Mount Sainte-Victoire. Let's go!Cruise lovers absolutely cannot miss this essential landmark just 30 minutes from Marseille!
Saint Rémy and its painters
Come and spend a delightful half-day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a typical Provençal village in the Alpilles. Following in Van Gogh's footsteps, get to know the famous artist more intimately as you stroll around the streets and other locations he used to visit. While he only spent a year here, when he was a self-admitted patient at the Saint-Paul asylum, he left an indelible mark on the town and its history. Make time also to see the magnificent Provençal building that houses the Estrine Museum dedicated to the artist.
