Pavillon de Vendome, Aix-en-Provence

4.0
#5 of 14 in Historic Sites in Aix-en-Provence
Previously a grand mansion, Pavillon de Vendome 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.

  • 17-century Pavilion surrounded by a park, a nice place for a stroll. A beautiful garden and an interesting mansion in the classic French style.

  • Visiting French garden. Magnificent building whose door is held by two giants. The Interior is absolutely to see at an exhibition.

  • 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.
