    Very nice place but the children's Park is a little weird I find otherwise care when lawn is sumptuous

    The visit to the Pavilion is free, the only thing paid is the visit to see paintings. It is a very quiet and relaxing place.

    Beautiful mansion in the calm of a nice little Park, corner of history, the pavillon Vendôme is to see both outside and inside. You'll quickly made the turn but there are often temporary exhibitions...

    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

    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.

    Sweet little park, great place to hang out in sunny afternoons/weekends.

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.
