North of Aix



The Cours des Alpes, situated on the northern edge of the city, is the first point of contact with the surrounding countryside. Painter Paul Cézanne fell in love with its beauty, building a house here, (today the Atelier Cézanne museum), which allowed him to paint the northern slopes of Mount Saint-Victoire to his heart's content. A visit to the city's inner suburbs invariably includes a tour of its vineyards, such as Château Revelette in Jouques or gives you the opportunity of learning more about the art of cement tile making still made the traditional way at the Carocim factory situated in the nearby town of Puyricard.
