Continue to explore the region around Aix-en-Provence. Set off along the pathways of History and discover monuments, castles, chapels, shrines and the treasures of our heritage buildings.

Along the way, you’ll come across gourmet restaurants, festivities for local produce, our five AOC vineyards, our Provencal specialities and oil mills.

You’ll love the adorable hilltop villages where studios of artists and craftsmen lie tucked away, not to mention the Cézanne trail and its magnificent views, and the impressive scenery of the great Sainte-Victoire Mountain. Here, nature puts you in the spotlight, during mountain hikes and walks through the Mediterranean forest.

From the mountain ranges of the Côtes to the Touloubre, from the Upper Valley of the Arc to the Durance Valley, a huge area of countryside is wide open to you to be experienced all year round.

Welcome to the Aix Region!
