Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence is the city of art, and a city of light and activity. Aix is also a home of art schools and several universities, including some American, attracting a youthful population that sparks the atmosphere.

During the last years of his life, Aix en Provence native Paul Cézanne settled in a little country cottage to produce art and live out the rest of his days. Now, decades later, his studio is open to the public. Cézanne loved Aix and is a source of pride for the city. Visit Atelier de Cézanne, and get a peek into the mind of a genius.

Saint Tropez

Saint Tropez – despite its many visitors – an unmissable place to visit. Not only because of its famous harbour, where there are always luxury yachts. But also because of its cosmopolitan, charming town center with trendy, upscale shops, the world famous “Le Marché” and its swinging nightlife. It happens in Saint Tropez!

Port Grimaud

To enter Port Grimaud you have to leave your car at one of the car parks and walk to the entrance. The houses in Port Grimaud are built in a very simple style, with the height and colour of the buildings being the main difference between them. The colours used for the houses are all terracottas, creams and dusky pinks, and some also feature wrought iron balconies. Lots of Venetian-style bridges cross the waterways, linking the different ‘streets’. The overall effect is very simple but quite beautiful and after the bustle of the rest of the Cote d’Azur it is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful here. Port Grimaud is referred to as the Venice Provençale. Distance from Villa Rosé: 15 km. / 9 miles
