    Very nice Chapel, annex of the Granet Museum, built to accommodate the collection stash. The works, especially late 19th and 20th century, are exhibited in turn, so we can go back on a regular basis without seeing always the same paintings/sculptures.

    The religious aspect remains to the ceiling with beautiful cross of warheads ranging from yellow to ochre. Instead, sleek and small, hosts works gathered by a Swiss collector, Jean Planque on three floors. It is possible to admire works by prestigious artists like Van Gogh, Monet, Rouault, Picasso, those artists less renowned as well as some paintings done by the collector in person. On the top floor, my favorite: oils on canvas of Claude Garache representing nudes blurred in the red tones that have me truly impressed.

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.
