    Characteristic of the part of old Aix although cleaning isn't exactly home ... even the pigeons break and leave traces everywhere ... a little retro ' many shops selling local products and plenty of places to drink and eat ... today we visit the new part ... I hope it's a little better!! p.s. it is a pedestrian area so you'll have to leave the area new!

    Here is a great place to stroll, the atmosphere is cool, and there are many restaurants and bars to choose from. We have around the shop and bought some beautiful lavender and roses SOAP, bubble bath, cosmetics and so on, are of good quality. Sunday market is very interesting, there will be a lot of fruits, vegetables, cheeses, olive oil, and local dining options in the vicinity. If you are in Aix, don't miss it!

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.
