A very special Weekend in Provence
September 15 – 17, 2018
Spend a fabulous weekend in Aix-en-Provence, a city of grand squares, sparkling fountains, art galleries galore, the Saturday night market and the Sunday morning farmers market plus the many café terraces. Wander the famous Cours Mirabeau stately avenue lined with plane trees, and weave your way through the streets of aristocratic grand houses in the footsteps of Paul Cezanne and Emile Zola. Enjoy an aperitif at the famous Café de Deux Garcons and dinner at the Le Poivre d’Ane at the Place des Cardeurs. Discover the elegance and magic of the city the locals call simply, Aix.
At around 2.5 hours from Paris by train, it’s the perfect weekend destination.
IDEAS TO FILL YOUR RELAXING WEEKND IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE:
There’s lots to see and do but you could fill your Sunday morning by visiting the Musée Granet and the temporary exhibition, « Picasso Mediterranean ». Then, go to Hotel Caumont for the temporary exhibition on Nicolas de Staël and enjoy a delicious lunch in the gorgeous garden courtyard at Hotel Caumont.
