It's hip, it's smart, it's Aix-en-Provence

Pack your thinking cap—it's time to go to Aix-en-Provence. Located 20 miles north of Marseilles, this beauitful city is known for its 40 ornately decorated fountains, wide leafy boulevards, and elegant 17th- and 18th-century buildings, as well as its several universities, which have earned it a reputation as 1 of France's smartest cities. It's also the birthplace of Paul Cezanne, the great impressionist painter, and is home to many art galleries, museums, and theaters, in addition to some very chic cafes, bars, and restaurants. With an Aix-en-Provence vacation rental, you're never far from sampling the cultural delights of 1 of France's finest cities.

Things to do

Fountains, fountains, and more fountains

One thing Aix-en-Provence isn't short of is fountains. Both big and small, they're everywhere! The finest fountains in the city can be found on the Cours Mirabeau—The Great Fountain and The Fountain of Nine Cannons are among 2 of the best. Another thing the city isn't lacking is art museums. There are many to choose from, but none are quite as grand as the Hotel de Caumont. Set in an opulent 18th-century mansion, Camount has an extensive collection of impressionist paintings, and holds major temporary exhibitions twice yearly.

Activities

Wearing your thinking cap on the Cours Mirabeau

There are 2 types of people that come from Aix-en-Provence—the brainy and the arty. Since the Good King Rene made the city the capital of Provence in the 15th century, artists, intellectuals, and other cultured sorts have flocked to the area. On the Cours Mirabeau, in the city center, you'll find a beautiful tree-lined avenue flanked by charming cafes and bookshops, as well as some studious-looking locals. Just south of the Cours Mirabeau is the Mazarin Quarter, where you can stroll along cobbled streets and admire the many ornate fountains and 17th-century townhouses.

Weather

Aix-en-Provence means shortsleeves in October

Aix-en-Provence has a Meditarranean climate, which means warm, dry summers and cool winters with occassional rainfall. Average summer highs peak around 86 degrees in July and August, while the top winter temperatures climb to about 55 in February. While there's more rain in September and Ocotber, temperatures still reach in excess of 70, so it may be worth your while booking your Aix-en-Province vacation rental in late fall if you want to avoid the crowds and save some money, but remember to bring an umbrella, just in case.

Natural features

Find inspiration in Aix-en-Provence

While Aix-en-Provence has an urban feel, it's not very far from the great outdoors, and some truly stunning natural beauty. There's no better example of this than the great Montaigne Sainte-Victoire, an 11-mile-long limestone mountain ridge, which is only 12 miles east of the city. Its spectacuar form has inspired artists for centuries, and it has been celebrated in the works of Pablo Picasso and Wassily Kandinsky. Paul Cezanne himself also painted it many times. At the appropriately named Painters Park, you can view the mountain, and maybe get inspired yourself.
