If I hadn’t already set up my family’s summer swap I would jump for this one! Aix in Southern France has a magic quality. It was home to Paul Cezanne, father of Modern painting. It is here in Aix, where he immortalized one of his favorite paint objects: Mont Saint-Victoire. Also a very popular place for walking and climbing, several routes lead to the majestic mountain. On top, the wanderer finds a 17th century priory and the cross of Provence, from where there is a magnificent panoramic view of Provence’s mountains and the rolling plains of the Aix area.
Marseille, the Cote d’Azur and Camargue are also near.
What are you waiting for?
