There’s a sense of times past floating in the air, an atmosphere of gentle refinement and serenity, a secret which only old family homes know how to keep. In the protective shade of centuries-old trees, some benches, tables, chairs seem all set to welcome Cézanne and his friend Zola. In the background, the Montagne Sainte-Victoire which the painter so loved. We’re in the area of the village of Beaurecueil, 15 minutes from Aix-en-Provence.
Although the décor is reminiscent of the 19th century Provencal traditions, the house has all modern comforts and the 12x5 swimming pool will delight young and old alike. A meal under the arbor with its delicate scent of lavender is a joy to be shared with family or friends.

You’re in the land of Cézanne, in the enchanting setting of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire. The house is situated in the area of Beaurecueil, a peaceful little village 10 km from Aix-en-Provence, barely 15 minutes away by car.
You are also a few kilometers from the village of Le Tholonet, which was one of Cézanne’s favourite places: the red soil, the grey stone, and the Sainte-Victoire standing out against the blue sky offer an extraordinary palette of colours.
You will discover the Castle of Le Tholonet that Cézanne painted. It is part of the Cézanne tour, which traces the important places of the painter’s life in the region of Aix.
Several very pleasant restaurants will allow you to have lunch or dinner in their garden or on their shaded terrace in a countryside and very romantic atmosphere.
Make the most of Provence!
