Project Description

Day One

Warm welcome by our Concierge upon arrival in Aix-en-Provence and check in to your elegant hotel where we have prepared a Special Welcome Gift with mini toiletries from the region especially chosen for your enjoyment and personally engraved.

Elegant Aix-en-Provence, called the City of a Thousand Fountains has been the inspirations of many painters including Picasso, Cezanne, Mondrian, so what better way than to begin exploring this beautiful town by admiring its beautiful houses dating from the 17th century and the Cours Mirabeau with its famous fountains and charming cafés. 

Our local concierge will give us a historical tour of the Old Town, the Quartier Mazarin and entertain us with  many literary anecdotes of Emile Zola, Camus and the cafés frequented by them. 

Guided by our art historian we will visit the Granet Museum, home to a magnificent collection of Picasso and Great Masters’ paintings and sculptures. 

After a delicious lunch in a renowned typical brasserie we will have leisure time for shopping before heading to the renowned Atelier of Paul Cezanne, a 538 square feet delight built to his specifications where we could almost expect to see him painting!

This evening we will enjoy a scrumptious dinner in One of Aix-en-Provence’s best kept secrets, paired with regional wines carefully chosen by our sommelier.
