In a region awash with picturesque villages, the elegant village of Aix-en-Provence is a must-see location. Winding streets adorned with beautiful old buildings, punctuated with pretty fountains, delightful bars, restaurants and clubs, the village is bursting with atmosphere. It is said the French voted it "the most desired French town to live in." This is easy to believe. It was here that world-famous painter, Paul Cézanne, was born, and where you can see the heart of his inspiration. Sainte-Victoire Mountain is one such place. Painted by Cezanne many times, you can follow in his footsteps either on foot or by bike around this magnificent white limestone landmark. Want to take home a little piece of Provence? The eclectic selection of traditional and speciality shops are filled with special handmade products, lavender and Calissons d’Aix – a local sweet. Take in the Aix vineyards and let the children run free across the magnificent hills and slopes; wonderful!
