  • It will take about 10 minutes to see everything and that’s if you’re over 75. The garden might be more impressive in warmer weather.  more »
  • Pavillion is beautiful but quite small and had very little on exhibit. Garden is quaint and had some shade on a wickedly hot day. Fine if your nearby but not worth a long walk from central Aix...  more »

  • If you happen to pass by, have a look at this nice 17 century private hotel that belonged to the duc de Vendôme, Antoine Matisse. There is a museum inside that regularly hosts different exhibitions. The gardens surrounding the house are great during the summer.
  • These lovely traditional formal gardens were on the route from our hotel to the centre of Aix, so we stopped off a couple of times. There are lots of benches to sit on, and it's a nice tranquil spot.
