Pavillon de Vendôme, Aix-en-Provence

4.0
#5 of 14 in Historic Sites in Aix-en-Provence
Previously a grand mansion, Pavillon de Vendôme is now the home of a museum displaying ancient and contemporary paintings, photography, and other artwork. Admire rare, 17th- and 18th-century paintings and sculptures. The mansion is an example of ancient Classical architecture and was registered as a historical monument in 1914. The central fountain in the museum's French garden is especially well-preserved.

  • Super plant frame in the Center City of Aix, in the background the pavillon Vendôme, summing up well a period in the history of AIX

  • A must to see, a superb façade and a beautiful French garden well maintained, however well choose his hours, attendance is not always advisable in the Park.

  • The Park is well maintained with trimmed shrubbery and pond with fish. Benches and walkways to enjoy the Park. Note a playground for children on the side. Possibility of visiting the Pavillon Vendôme according to exhibitions. A place based slightly off the Center City of Aix.

  • The gardens are really well cared for and definitely worth a visit. We did not do the tour of the residence because we were pressed for time. It was only 3.50 Euro and I intend to do it next time.
  • I love this place! A beautiful house and park - even though you can't sit on the grass. Take a look at the ironwork.
  • Calm and serene; not crowded like parc torse
  • Sweet little park, great place to hang out in sunny afternoons/weekends.
  • Great little parc in the middle of the city. It is good for a place to read a book, or just relax and talk with someone. It is very well kept and there is a little museum there too.

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.
