Overview

Just a few steps from the Cours Mirabeau, a new Arts Centre is opening its doors in the Hotel de Caumont, a fully restored private mansion from the 18th century. Two major temporary exhibitions per year dedicated to great names in the history of art, as well as a diverse programme of events, makeCaumont a major cultural institution in Aix-en-Provence. The film > shown continuously every day in the auditorium presents the artist's journey and his passion for Aix-en-Provence and its region. The visit of the private mansion immerses you in the refined atmosphere of this exceptional venue, from the cour d'honneur to the gardens, passing through the historic rooms. The carefully furnished and decorated rooms reveal daily life at the time of Pauline, marquise de Caumont, one of the most famous owners of the mansion in the 18th century. The private gardens of the mansion, fully refurbished in the spirit of the site, offer over 1000 m² of peaceful space decorated with fountains,flowerbeds bordered by boxwood, and large vases of flowers.

A beautifully restored hotel particulier hosting art exhibitions. Sit in the garden, enjoy the space or try the lovely restaurant.

The cost of admission is 13euro, which probably nothing if you are a renaissance connoisseur, but is just a little expensive for what it offers. In saying that, if you would like to see a refurbished cultural French chateau, you should come and see it...More

After visiting the galleries we stopped here for strawberry tarts. Very tasty and nice teas. Only issue is tables so low can't fit knees under.

We weren't overly fond of the exhibition art on display during our visit (abstract art) but we love the salon/restaurant and how quaint it was. And the garden was quite charming. So go there for lunch at minimum.

It's not a hotel. I know the name is confusing. If you want a nice hotel in Aix-en-Provence, there are plenty of top class choices!
