AIX en PROVENCE...Everyone I know who visited France said that Aix en Provence was where the French went for vacation. Street cafés, sunshine, French cuisine, blue skies, tree lined boulevards and Mediterranean waters! What's not to like? (Besides a cost of living that rivals Paris.)


And, I guess it's been a destination for artists for quite some time. Paul Cézanne lived in Aix en Provence. If you wander the downtown area, you'll see lots of reminders of their favorite son including a statue, paintings in the museums, street markers, and oh so many souvenirs. If you make it out of town, you should see la montagne Sainte Victoire, a mountain that dominates both the local landscape and many of Cézanne's paintings.
