Travel Blogs from Aix-en-Provence
Breck and I stayed one night in Aix, a bigger, more sophisticated town in Provence. Unfortunately there is not much to say about this part of the trip, as we were feeling burnt out on sightseeing, and instead saw a movie and shopped
... looked immense with that backdrop - just look at the photo. It should be a Land-rover advertisement not a Corsa.
It was now 7:15, we took the shortest route up and jogged it! The sweat was pouring off us, however you seemed to forget when looking at the views around you . I was blown away by the views when we summited. The sun was just setting as we took a few photos, it was so windy and cold but definitely worth it! So, a climb that was meant to take ...
... river and the on to climb the walls for a better view. Found a delightful Chocolateir and Nougat shop and made a small purchase. Recommendations for next time - stay a couple of days, hire bikes to get around, when arriving from Aix en Provence direction, turn left at the fork when you first see the city walls so you get the fantastic view of the city first up. Our directions took us to the left and so views were from ground up, and the back side, looked much. ...
We started the day with a delightful French continental breakfast
After breakfast we commenced our last walk to Rustrel where would be picked up and returned to our accommodation. My pedometer failed me today, so was not able to indicate how many steps we did, but it was about 12kms.
After a poor manīs breakfast we embarked on the next walk.
We checked out from the Alberge des Seguins and commenced our walk onto Saignon.
Today I walked 8270 steps, about 6-7 kms, not as long as the last few days

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cezanne Aix-en-Provence
A delightful surprise
We live in Paris and, therefore, do not expect great service from French hotels. However, we were amazed by the service and staff at the Cezanne Mercure boutique hotel on rue de Victor Hugo. The staff was very friendly and provided excellent suggestions (in fluent English, French or German) for sites and tours. We stayed 3 nights and will definitely go back. The rooms are a nice size and the beds are new, big and very comfortable. The breakfast each morning was quite filling and had a number of options on the buffet. Best of all is the locaiton...close to everything without being in the middle of the noise. Also, the car rental place next door (Cargo) is well-equipped and half the price of Hertz.
this place has to be seen - or just go & stay! to be believed..from the decor & colours- lounge area, bar with the lighting, furniture, fruit bowls, self service bar; free mini bar, then there is the beds! huge soft doonas & pillows (our room anyway).
4 computers - with american keyboard (a bonus) - free internet. then the service - excellent.
What a delightful property! My family and I regrettably spent only one night here during a 2-week trip to France. The front desk staff could not have been more accommodating, and their English was perfect and much appreciated. The hotel is just across the street from the train station and a few easy blocks of walking to one of the many fountains and a delightful variety of restaurants. Aix is so very charming and the pace is relaxed.
Loved this hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and spoke very good english. Located in walking distance of all restaurants and sights. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Mini Bar with water and soft drinks were free and replaced every day. Internet desk also free.
Liquor at small Bar and lounge was on an honour system, pour your own and pay a set price. Breakfast room was very french and the food was always replaced and fresh including hot and cold foods and fresh fruits and juice. Breakfast was a pleasure.
Walking distance to local train station or hire cars.
Nothing was a problem.
The Paul Cezanne, under the friendly eye of the new owner, is a wonderful option in Aix-en-Provence. Less than a block from the train station it is also an easy walk to all of the sights and restaurants of Aix. The rooms are very comfortable, furnished in subdued Provencal fabrics and wall coverings, with new mattresses and linens that were more comfortable than the Westin's highly touted beds we slept in in Paris a few nights later. The hotel provides the free use of a computer, morning newspapers and water and soft drinks in the room. The reception area is very attractive with an honor bar and light snacks and candles welcome guests at the end of the day. Everything about the hotel is immaculate and the staff friendly, helpful and professional. As other reviewers have mentioned the hotel is under new ownership so any reviews written before January would not reflect the changes made. We would highly recommend the Paul Cezanne.
The hotel was in a great location as easy to get around, yet quiet in the evenings.The owner and staff were welcoming, friendly and always ready to assist with restaurant recommendations and bookings.
Definitely would stay again.
Now an independent
The hotel is no longer a Mecure and it appears to have been updated recently. Our rooms were spacious with large, modern baths. We had breadfast at the hotel and it was one of the best we had on our trip. The staff was pleasant and very willing to help with restaurant reservations, directions etc.
One morning we didn't have sufficient hot water but all other times it was fine.
The location is very good-it's a short walk to the Cours Mirabeau and the major attractions of the city.
I would stay here again without hesitation.
I suspect many of the luke warm reviews I've read do not take into account the fact that this hotel is now independent and no longer part of the Mercure chain. We would highly recommend it!
Provence in Winter
We stayed at this property for 3 nights. It is located next to the train station (although you cannot hear or see it). Hotel is not that big. The lobby is ok but the higher floor landing are nice. The room we had was a good size but needed slight updating. Beds were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was modern but could use some grouting. Parking if not available in the city lots is 20E per day at the station (10 per day in the other lots). Up the street on Victor Hugo is a crepe and sandwich stand that is next to the rotunde and is outstanding. The chocolate place accorss the street is very good but pricey. Also try Bistro Romain and Duex Garcon on Cours Mirabeau.
The Mercure Paul Cezanne is a nice little hotel in a good location just a couple of minutes stroll from the Cours Mirabeau and La Rotunde. Our room was comfortably sized and quiet. It was tastefully decorated with provencial fabrics and furnishings....bedding was crisp, clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was large and clean...hairdryer is provided along with good quality ammenities (shampoo, conditoner, etc). Front-desk service and housekeeping were pleasant and efficient. There is a small elevator and the bldg is air-conditioned (altho we did not use it as the air was crisp and clean so we had our windows open). No view which shouldn't be important if you're getting out every day; no bellman so prepare to haul your own baggage. Breakfast is served daily in a picturesque little dining room at an additional charge but we did not eat there preferring to stroll to La Rotunda cafe for coffee and coissant on the terrace.
