These lovely traditional formal gardens were on the route from our hotel to the centre of Aix, so we stopped off a couple of times. There are lots of benches to sit on, and it's a nice tranquil spot.

Beautiful park and pavillon with an interesting background story. Nice as part of stroll around central Aix. Did not enter the building so cannot comment on interiors or ongoing exhibition.

Good location outside. But inside 3.50 euro for two rooms. Better see only the garden that is free. It s a joke

Able to see art display on the free Sunday when visiting. Even if you don’t go in the Home, the garden(s) are lovely to see and enjoy (roses, playground, pond)

Although my partner and I have been to Aix many times, we only just discovered Pavillon de Vendome. According to Wikipedia, the house was "commissioned by Louis, Duke of Vendôme (1612-1669) as a place where he could take his lover, Lucrèce de Forbin Solliès." It...More

A beautiful 17th century house set in a lovely garden built by Louis de Mercoeur, Duc de Vendome, as a hideaway to carry on a love affair with Lucrece de-Forbin Sollies. Lucky girl - certainly an extravagant place for a bit of nooky! Beautifully proportioned...More
