“A surly attendant ruins the experience”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The gardens are lovely. The house looks nice. Most of the art being exhibited in the house detracts from the building and grounds, although one piece was interesting. The attendant was very unpleasant -- a man who thought his only purpose was to collect fees impolitely.

“Don't bother going in!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

The garden is beautiful, but going inside is not worth it! Make sure to stroll around the garden only.

“I lived in Aix and loved this garden”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I lived in Aix en Provence and would visit this little garden often, just to sit in the sun and enjoy the flowers and building. It is a quiet and pretty spot.

“A nice little garden”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

It is probably much nicer in summer. Hope there are more flowers though. A good place to relax overall.

“Enjoy a Quick Small Museum and Grounds”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Gives a snapshot of architecture and furniture for that period plus had a very modern textile art display there. Beautiful grounds and nice place to sit, people watch and feel very French!
