I returned here after 3 years with friends. It's best to view after 9:30 am to see Mt. Ste. Victoire. The signs have been replaced and provide info about Cezannes view of the mountain. It's a small hike up here from town, but we stopped...More

Not so hard to find. There are steps one way or wander in a neighbor and find off Margurite Parkway.

It is a stunning view onto the North face of Ste Victoire mountain. The area is surrounded by villas and roads but it has kept its charm and offers benches and boards with explanations. The walk to reach this spot is totally dull and goes...More

Personally, I enjoyed this park more than seeing Cezanne's atelier. The view of Mount Sainte-Victoire is powerful, especially since it's such an iconic subject of his. And I think of Cezanne more as plein air than studio painter. When we visited (October), we had the...More

This is probably the best place that we visited on this trip to Provence. If you are an art lover......particularly of Cezanne then you MUST go here. It is truly beautiful.

Was excited to see this park based on the reviews. We were disappointed to arrive to find that the park was not kept up well. Weeds marred the parts, no flowers, and plastic piping visible in places. There are placards of some of Cezanne's paintings...More

We walked to and from this view from town which was easy and well signposted. A great view and important for the comprehensive Cezanne experience. The only jarring item - a continues (smoke bush) which would not have been in the original paintings

Honestly - I don't know why they don't advertise this place at the tourist information! I thought it is really magical, despite the fact that I am not the biggest admirer of Cezanne's work. It's some 20 Minutes walk from the downtown, it goes uphill...More
