Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

The art exhibit was top notch but the historical aspect of the hotel particular consisted of only two rooms. The gardens were difficult to judge as it had just snowed. The setting for the restaurant appeared to be of classic beauty but sterile. Go depending on the art show.

We really enjoyed seeing this hotel, even though some of the rooms were closed. We also saw the movie about Paul Cezanne which was so good! Definitely worth going to!

A hotel in Aix en Provence is a palace. You can vist it and have a nice tea in the ground floor if you are invited by a member of the club. The furniture is really amazing!!! The garden is awsome.There are exhibitions that you can attend (check for them)
