  • Finally! We can eat again on the site, and in a nice way. The products are mostly local, the prices are rather mild, and the terrace is gigantic. The room lacks charm but the team is in small care and everything goes on the plate, whether for a small snack or a big Sunday lunch. Melting Panisses, generous vegetarian platter, gargantuan deli plates, and desserts!!!! as beautiful as good. Accept to wait a little, they just opened and are victims of their success. Reservation highly recommended.

  • Beautiful hike of about 15 km, 800 m from the parking lot of the bouquet, refuge Cézanne, Priory Ste Victoire, cross of Provence, with a magnificent panorama, the long crossing well signalled among these rocks, allowing to see always this panomara to arrive at the peak of the flies and start the descent on Puyloubier where we can eat and take the Victorine bus among the vineyards to reach AIX,

  • We took the D17 from Aix, which runs along the southern edge. The weather was a bit rainy, and the mountain was sometimes shrouded in clouds, but there were great views from the stops along the road.
  • A must seen
