                      Other Activities

                          • Aix en Provence city Aix-en-Provence is renowned for being a vibrant, many-coloured and lively town with many events and festivals indeed. Town of water, town of art... Everyone knows that Aix was built and has developed around this dual identity. Open to the world, it is a city of human dimension (137 067 inhabitants) where the preserved heritage and the city of tomorrow blend perfectly. Here, all is colour and sensation: the light of the sky, the golden stone of the facades, the transparent green of the fountains, the shade of the plane trees, surprises held by the festival nights... Aix-en-Provence also knows how to blend different eras and culture and especially through several museums (« Musée du vieil Aix”, “Musée Granet”, “Musée de la mémoire du Camp des Milles”). Aix's position in the south of France gives it a warm climate. Average days of sun per year: 300. The summer is in general hot with sunny days. In any case, Aix will give you a warm welcome. Along with activities related to its famous artists Cezanne (Post-Impressionism, la montagne Sainte-Victoire) and Vasarely (Op art movement) but also Picasso (Cubism), guided tours are possible (Tour of historic center, In the steps of Cézanne,…) accredited by the Ministry of Culture and Communication and made by some street storytellers. At anytime during the year, visitors can take part to French lessons for foreigners, cooking classes or private art tours. It is also possible to be delighted in a state-of-the-art spa built on the authentic ruins of the former Roman spa, offering relaxing cures, massages, water aerobics,… Indeed, discover the Thermes Sextius Spa, the largest wellness area of the region, in the heart of the historical center of Aix en Provence. You have the possibility to go for shopping reasons downtown: - market: fresh local products, seasonal fruits and vegetables - antique shops, arts and crafts - friendly atmosphere For more information, go to the tourism office located down below the “Cours Mirabeau” in a new district called “Les allées provençales”. Source : http://en.aixenprovencetourism.com/ Photos : http://www.flickr.com/photos/aix-en-provence/show/ The Provence region from Aix Aix-en-Provence is centrally located for day trips to the sensational Luberon Valley and its spectacularly picturesque towns such as La Coste, Gordes, Roussillon (The Ochre Trail, le Colorado provençal, between Luberon and the Vaucluse mountains; 53 kilometers) & Lourmarin (one of the most beautiful villages of France, 35 kilometers); trips to the seaside in Marseille (see below) and Cassis (famous for its cliffs (falaises) and the sheltered inlets called calanques, its white wines), lots of places where you can experience delicious plates, buy regional products, spend good time facing wonderful natural sceneries. Note that the city of Arles (The Roman and Romanesque Monuments of Arles were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1981), gateway of the Camargue (“Les Amis des Marais du Vigueirat” offer the public the opportunity to visit a famous nature reserve located in the Camargue), is not so far (70 kilometers). As well, Aubagne (40 kilometers), among other things, is surrounded by the mountain ranges of Garlaban, and Sainte-Baume to the north (the Marcel Pagnol heritage, Santons: small hand-painted terracotta nativity scene figurines). The Sainte-Victoire Mountain, famously linked to Cézanne and Picasso, is only a short drive away (10 minutes) and allows for hiking, picknicking etc… in a stunning scenery (The Thlonnet village, Roques Hautes, Beaurecueil road…). The coastal line and the countryside are worth exploring. Give priority to beaches close to de Carry-le-Rouet, Martigues, Cassis, La Ciotat or Bandol (between 30 minutes and 1 hour by car). Marseille-Provence airport is about 25 minutes from the house. The TGV railway station is about 15 minutes. The house is well situated because not close but too far from the highway in direction of the airport or the train station. Marseille city has been designated as European Capital of Culture in 2013. Main sights: The Old Port or Vieux-Port, La Vieille Charité in the Panier, The 19th-century Basilica of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, The Unité d'Habitation (Le Corbusier), The prison of Château d'If was one of the settings for The Count of Monte Cristo, the novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée (MuCEM),… And so on… Gastronomy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marseille Virtual visit: http://www.france-voyage.com/tourisme/provence-alpes-cote-d-azur-region.htm ...moreless
