    The Institut d'Etudes Françaises pour Etudiants Etrangers, part of the Universite de Paul Cezanne, is just one of the schools in Aix where you can study French. It is where I attended for two semesters.

    AIX, VILLE DE CéZANNE .....

    Paul Cézanne is a most famous painter who lived and worked in and around Aix-en-Provence.

    Here in Aix you can walk in his footsteps....the Tourist Office will hand you the route through Cézanne's Aix-en-Provence and I hope you will enjoy as I did, although.......I had been looking forward to visiting l'Atelier de Cézanne but....it was closed because of renovation works when I was in Aix: I felt VERY disappointed that's for sure!

    Yet I shall give you the address and hope you will have better luck than I last time I visited Aix once more....

    (Cézanne used to say: this is my atelier/worksoph and no one enters here but ME; whenever you are a friend we shall enter together!)

    In the pgotograph you see MONTAGNE SAINTE VICTOIR which mountain Cézanne painted numerous times and when you are by car it is easy to go there and see the mountain for yourself as we did!

    Enjoy "sur les pas de Cézanne" and at the same time you will discover AIX EN PROVENCE.

    L'Atelier Cézanne

    Cézanne's place of residence and workshop is in a quiet, somewhat isolated neighborhood not far from the old quarters. It's a rather unassuming 2-story house surrounded by a luxuriant garden that seems to have been left to grow untended. The workshop on the 2nd floor is basically a large room devoid of furnishings. Displayed here are many of Cezanne's still-life models, paintings, tools, and personal artifacts.

    Spend A Leisurely Afternoon In The Square

    Place de l'Hôtel de Ville is really pretty and very sunny. It is also close to the Cezanne University so you will often find a lot of students taking a coffee or lunch there.
