Nice gardens and great view from outside

The weather was great when we got there, so we could enjoy sitting on the bench in the garden. It's well maintained, gives amazing French feeling, like a mini Versailles. There is... read more

I was all excited to see this beautiful house filled with its furniture and furnishings, as if the owners left a moment ago. Not. Even though it is described as containing furniture and such, it has a couple (two) dressers standing in bare rooms. They did have four restored periods paintings, badly displayed, that were notable for their ugliness. The... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this park so close to town yet hidden away.... the story that goes along with the mansion/sculptured gardens is equally fascinating!! you can still see the area where the carriage pulled into the main level of the house even after being filled in.... A great place to enjoy some solitude right outside... More

The weather was great when we got there, so we could enjoy sitting on the bench in the garden. It's well maintained, gives amazing French feeling, like a mini Versailles. There is another garden besides it, it's smaller but also very romantic. We went inside the building, but it was renovated so only the ground floor could be visited. It... More

this was nice to see, but we were not able to go in because it was closed. The park was calm with a few people enjoying it

When I came here, the building was closed. Only the gardens were open to public. Their gardens are nice and you can find many local couples here having their lunches or folks just sitting around to enjoy the garden .

Had a conference reception in the garden. The garden is very very beautiful. The head of arts and culture or something gave a speech and told (gossiped) the whole story about previous owners of this place. The only part I remember: originally it was built for a mistress, and then the mistress got her husband to live together in this... More

This is our favorite park in Aix. It is so pretty and serene. We've been here many times and will likely return. For the first time ever, we entered the mansion in the park. I always wanted to go in, but it was closed during my earlier visits. It is very small, elegantly detailed and pretty empty. It was built... More

Apart from the road along this beautiful park - the charm of the place is exotic garden whic is well maintained. It is more than ideal for lunch breaks and strolls. A haven in the middle of the city in turmoil!

Pavillon de Vendome is located far away from centre of town. So if you decide to explore Aix by foot it is good promenade across the city, approx. 20-25 minutes. I decided to go there and see one more Aix sight. As soon as I arrived there I found out that building has closed because Tuesday. I was disappointed but... More
