Lighten up on a cheap weekend getaway to Aix-en-Provence

Artistic promenades in Cézanne’s footsteps
Aix-en-Provence is a city renowned for its art de vivre and always inspires visitors to get away from it all. Come for a cheap weekend and make sure you pick the right accommodation for you, such as the ibis Styles Aix en Provence Mas des Oliviers hotel. Guests stay in designer rooms near the city centre.
The soothing charms of the city of a thousand fountains
Your cheap weekend in Aix-en-Provence is going to be beautiful: your hotel is just by the Bastide du Jas de Bouffan. Cézanne was born there and it was within its walls that he set up his first studio. Another of his studios is to the north of the city and is now known as the Atelier Cézanne. We recommend making the trip: You will see the very objects the painter used for his still lifes. At the gates of Aix-en-Provence, the Chemin de Bibémus leads you to ancient ochre quarries. Cézanne’s fauvist paintings were greatly inspired by them. He set up his easel in the environs so he could capture all the nuanced shades of Sainte-Victoire mountain.
Naturally blessed with an abundance of springs, Aix-en-Provence is nicknamed the ‘city of a thousand fountains’. Discover them as you stroll down the Cours Mirabeau. The majestic Roi René fountain is certainly impressive, while Neuf Canons has the distinction of marking the site of a former drinking fountain. Moussue fountain effervesces with the thermal waters that bubble beneath it. You will want to linger on Cours Mirabeau to explore its café terraces, ice cream stalls and sweet shop windows. And you’ll only be a stone’s throw from the old town. Its inviting pedestrianised streets will take you to the Pavillon de Vendôme. This grand town house with its superb garden has collections of Provençal furniture.
