  • Take the time to go on the trail of the sainte Victoire for a very nice hike to the top. After a well-deserved break the landscape will delight you return is just as nice as you will feel out of a painting by Cézanne

  • When we go hiking, we have the impression of walking in a table (of Cézanne, of course). Unforgettable view.

  • The saint is still a wonder, climb hard 2 hour no rush. At the top the view is magnificent from all side, the Priory which serves cottage is very beautiful side outside. The return by the green trail is more delicate and demand to know the mountain. In the evening at sunset the mountain takes fabulous purple tints a true picture of Cézanne
