The Pavillon de Vendome is a fine building from the outside, but inside it would be a bit disappointing were it not for the temporary Atelier Buffile exhibition of fabulous ceramics dating back over 70 years; plates, vases, jugs in quirky designs and vivid colours...More

Although my partner and I have been to Aix many times, we only just discovered Pavillon de Vendome. According to Wikipedia, the house was "commissioned by Louis, Duke of Vendôme (1612-1669) as a place where he could take his lover, Lucrèce de Forbin Solliès." It...More

When I was staying in Aix-en-Provence, we were right down the street from the Pavillon de Vendome. We would often go there to sit and watch the French school children eating their lunches--all of. us enjoying the beauty of this pavillion.

The gardens are spectacular and the mansion itself is extraordinarily interesting and well worth a special visit

I was all excited to see this beautiful house filled with its furniture and furnishings, as if the owners left a moment ago. Not. Even though it is described as containing furniture and such, it has a couple (two) dressers standing in bare rooms. They...More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this park so close to town yet hidden away.... the story that goes along with the mansion/sculptured gardens is equally fascinating!! you can still see the area where the carriage pulled into the main level of the...More
