Escaping to Aix

January 21, 2013

The second part of our perfect Provence itinerary takes us to Aix-en-Provence, the gorgeous garden city where washed out colors of Provencal buildings evoke calm and beauty, and the cafes and markets will charm you at every turn.  Vendors from all over the region come to Aix several times a week to sell food, herbs, fabrics, and of course everything lavender.  You’ll love it here . . .

Part 2: Aix-en-Provence: 3 days at the Hotel Le Pigonnet.

This is a dreamy base for exploring all the delights of Aix-en-Provence. The perfect place to relax after exploring and before your Michelin-starred dinner.

Next Stop on your travels . . .  again, you must come back to see.  Hint: a gites in the countryside where you can take cooking classes, sleep in a mansion that’s literally in the middle of lavendar fields, learn about the foods of the regions, and give your wallet a small break .
