featured in News & reviews Updated

Hailed by many as the cultural centre of the South of France, Aix-en-Provence is packed full of interesting architecture, narrow streets, picturesque squares and plenty of museums and galleries.

If you're visiting Aix this year, you'll find a good choice of luxury accommodation, from glamorous grand villas and mansions, to chic and contemporary design hotels, either within the city or in its more rural outskirts.

Sumptuous and romantic - Villa Gallici

Located on the northern edge of Aix city centre, this hotel can be found set within idyllic gardens, dotted with classical Greek statues.

Even though the hotel is incredibly close to the city, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you were staying in a country chateaux, far from anywhere. The décor is classical in design, with sumptuous fabrics and prints adorning the furniture and walls.

Dine at the hotel's gastronomic restaurant under the shade of the plane trees on the terrace, or relax by the outdoor pool followed by enjoying a beauty treatment in the spa.

Classic and contemporary - Le Pigonnet hotel

Once a favourite of famed artist Paul Cezanne, Le Pigonnet Hotel combines the classic features of an 18th century mansion with more modern and contemporary design in some of its rooms and salons.

Its luscious gardens invite you for a stroll, where you'll find the large swimming pool and fountain. The gourmet restaurant offers a modern take on Provençal flavours and the spa and wellness area cater for those seeking to unwind.

Modern luxury - Rennaisance hotel

The modern exterior of the Renaissance hotel makes it stand out from most of the other luxury accommodation in the area and this is also reflected in its interiors, with ultra modern furniture, fixtures and fittings throughout.

Its other main point of difference is its size; in addition the rooms and suites, it has a Presidential suite and lots of large outdoor spaces plus a gourmet restaurant that seats 300, this certainly isn't a small hotel. A large spa and wellness area with an indoor pool and gym tops off the facilities.

Quirky individuality - Hotel Cezanne

This rather quirky boutique hotel has quite an unassuming exterior, but once inside, you'll discover bright modern art adorning the walls, individually designed and decorated bedrooms and a flair for colour.

For those of you who like a leisurely breakfast, you can eat any time from 06:00 to midday and in terms of location you couldn't be more central, as the hotel is just a short walk away from the Cours Mirabeau

Gastronomic castle - Chateau de la Pioline

This wonderful chateau is situated just a few kilometres from the centre of Aix, set in a four-hectare park filled with statues, columns and pathways. Period furniture, tiled floors and elegant décor abound within, with just a hint of more modern and contemporary furniture dotted about.

There are spacious rooms, a library, business centre and a large pool in the grounds. The chef here creates mini masterpieces on your plate, which are a joy to behold and to eat.
