We visited the home of Cezzane along with our Parisian friends. The tour guide was most knowledgable, bi-lingual and answered all our questions. The tour as well as video is well done. Purchase tickets at the Tourist Center.

A very informative tour with great potential for additional script with the possible expanding of this great story for the city of Aix. I loved to see similar sights that Cezanne had in portraying his landscapes.

Lovely evocative tour in English. Hard to get tickets and parking in very dodgy run down area but worth it if you love Cezanne. Not much there but our guide made it interesting and worthwhile. Shows the encroaching of the city on what used to...More

The main salon where the docent gives her commentary is large and has poor acoustics. Coupled with a difficult accent and rapid delivery made this presentation very hard to understand. The docent really knew her stuff and was interesting but it was so, so hard...More

Bonjour. La bastide est accessible en voiture mais il est difficile de s'y garer. Du centre d'Aix, on peut s'y rendre en bus (bus n°8, 10min environ). L'office du tourisme fournit de bons renseignements.
