    When you want to take a break, away from the crowded streets of Aix, this place is perfect! Snacks (like scones or muffins!) are really good, and the choice of books perfect for the bilingual. The welcome is friendly too, in short we stayed a while relaxing with friends. Read and enjoy, it's a great combination! And if more, England you are missing, then go ahead!

    Probably the best place for English books in town. Doubles as a cafe, fresh orange juice and coffee (among other things) for when you want to relax and read a little. The second floor has a massive amount of language learning books, a lot of them for languages not offered elsewhere such as Korean or regional dialects. They have all the biggest teen crazes from Percy Jackson to Twilight, as well as more adult authors such as Terry Brooks or Laurel K Hamilton.

    Perfectly located next to Museum Hotel Caumont, this small bookstore is a little treasure filled with many English and foreign books. It's cafe provided a great afternoon break amongst this book and it's my favorite place to work outside of the office :)

    Super friendly staff, amazing selection of up to date books (even bilingual books!) and cosy corners to sit, read and enjoy a (cheap) cup of coffee

    Great, original experience, surrounded by books, good coffee and friendly staff. Pricing reasonable. Seating quite limited.

    Book in Bar is primarily a bookstore, but there's a café in the back as well. It has books in all sorts of languages, so if you need a new book to read and can't/don't want a french book, this is the place to go!

Where to stay in Aix-en-Provence

To explore the old town's shops, markets, and bookstores on foot, stay at one of the city's centrally located hotels. Just a short drive from this busy central area are a selection of luxurious villas, surrounded by formal gardens and private swimming pools. Though rather expensive, these elegant mansions provide a convenient base from which to explore the cultured area surrounding the city. For a cheaper alternative, look for private inns and B&Bs on the edge of town.
