    Aix-en-Provence – a thinker's welcome to Provence

    Prepare to exercise the brain cells in studious Aix-en-Provence. Even the babbling fountains in this patchwork of 17th-century mansions, soaring belfries and neoclassical boulevards are usually enough to turn the head and get you thinking. Artistic and grand, there's more than 40 water features across town, a legacy of its Roman heritage. Relaxing in the shade of the plane trees of Cours Mirabeau is where you'll discover the folk from the local university knocking back espressos and chin wagging philosophy and painting. And then there are the museums, awash with masterpieces by Cezanne – born here in 1839 – and ancient relics alike. Aix-en-Provence holiday rentals await.

    Getting lost in the streets of Aix-en-Provence

    Turn one corner and you're shrouded by centuries-old mansions dressed in honey-coloured stone. Turn another and there's the bustle of the Cours Mirabeau, an almost impressionist medley of moving people and buzzing Parisian cafes. These are the pleasures of getting lost in the historic heart of Aix-en-Provence. You'll discover local flower markets wafting the scent of Provencal lavender into the arcades. You'll find bubbling fountains ringed by aperitif spots offering you the chance to imbibe some potent local pastis. You'll uncover crooked squares and formidable lion statues. It's a joy.

    Museums abound in Aix-en-Provence

    Once you're done weaving between the cafes and gilded fountains, Aix-en-Provence's more cerebral side awaits. It's got all the enthralling exhibits you'd expect of the onetime home of the revered French master Paul Cezanne. Start at the Hotel de Caumont, a handsome 18th-century mansion that's laden with sumptuous interiors and world-class touring collections. The Granet Museum should be next on the list, with its impressionist wonders – Cezanne included – and venerable menagerie of pre-Roman relics related to local Celtic tribes.

    A climate to fall for in Aix-en-Provence

    Aix-en-Provence really does have a climate to envy. Warm summers regularly see the mercury rise to over 30 degrees, not to mention hardly any rain at all – prime time if you're looking for a villa with a pool in the surrounding Provencal countryside. What's more, while the crowds drop off, things stay hot for autumn and warm up early in spring. That makes months like May, September and October a welcome choice for booking Aix-en-Provence holiday rentals on the doorstep of the boulevards and museums.

    Surveying the region from Aix-en-Provence

    Aix-en-Provence is tucked into the southern lowlands of France, surrounded by beautiful swathes of lavender fields and meadows scented with wild thyme. Such a gorgeous location makes it important to escape the city, which can be done with ease thanks to the proximity of the Montaigne Sainte-Victoire to the east. This rugged ridge of limestone looms above the pine woods. Explore the curious tiny chapel, built into a hermit's cave, and admire the sweeping views of Provence – no wonder it was a muse for Cezanne. Alternatively, the vast Luberon Natural Regional Park beckons with rolling hills, river gorges and prehistoric caves to the north.
