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.

  • 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.
