Welcome to Aix-en-Provence!

What if you escaped, for a weekend, to this little corner of paradise in the South-East where Elleanor de Provence pieces are designed and made?

We have carefully prepared the ideal program for your stay!

Stroll through the typical streets of Aix-en-Provence

Start from the famous Rotonde fountain, symbol of the city, to Place de la Mairie. You will then discover the emblematic places of the city of a thousand fountains: the Place des Quatre Dauphins, the Passage Agard, the Place d'Albertas and the Saint-Sauveur Cathedral.

You can take advantage of the Place des Prêcheurs market to taste Provençal dishes: olives and tapenades, dried tomatoes or even a good pissaladière.

Don't forget to taste the famous Calissons d'Aix-en-Provence from Maison Béchard on the Cours Mirabeau.

We also advise you to savor Christophe's Madeleines (comparable to those of Proust) and to stop at Maison Weibel for their pastries that are as beautiful as they are delicious!
