Overview
More
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 Cezanne movie was very interesting and informative. The 2 restored rooms with touch screen displays to elaborate on the features in the room were excellent. Possibly a bit expensive but there must have been many hours worked to achieve the beautiful result.

A wonderful restoration places the art in a stunning setting. Lunch in the dining area, especially on a nice day in the garden is really a treat.

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!
