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
We met with high winds and rough seas last night heading from LaSpezia to The French Riviera, so our trip to St. Tropez was canceled. We rebooked an excursion to a seaside fishing resort headed in the direction of Marseille (20 minutes East). It is called Cassis. Despite the fact that out time on the French Riviera was cut short due to the impending storm, it was no less enjoyable ...
This is a charming village, south of the Luberon mountain area in Provence. It is the home of Peter Mayle, a Brit, who wrote books on rebuilding a farm house in Provence. He describes a snow clad night in winter as being so quiet you could "hear a mouse ****" It has tiny streets and the centre part of it is blocked off during the day.. Parking is an issue (don't ...
... racks put on and to our surprise they didn’t look too dorky at all!!! So off we went for a few back roads and then a ride along the enclosed sea fed lake and clocked 25km’s with a couple of hills and the bikes rolled along – this is the first woman’s specific bike I have had and WHAT a difference – I would love to change my bikes at home now. We are so excited and I can’t wait to get pedalling across ...
... a spot for our stuff, and then went up to rehearse with La Philharmonie Provence Mediterranee. There was very little time, so we didn't get to know the conductor nearly as well as our Spanish conductor. It would be tough to beat Spain with the emotional, dramatic conducting; however, the French conductor won us over when he complimented us later. He said, "I don't know how to describe it any other way, but you made it easy." He compared us ...

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.
