Nearby is the charming Roman city of Aix-en-Provence, with tree-lined boulevards and multitude of squares, it is often referred to as the ‘Paris of the south’ or the ‘town of a thousand fountains’. Its roots in art history, as well as its large University and prominent café culture are evident across the town, as students and locals gather on the terraces to discuss and debate.
Dominating the skyline of Aix is the towering Mont St Victoire – a challenge for hikers and the subject of over a hundred works by the impressionist painter Paul Cézanne.
