Guests of the Aquabella Hotel and Spa are within walking distance of some of Aix’s most charming streets and best-known sites. Rooms are colorful and modern, air-conditioned, and feature complimentary Wi-Fi. Privilege Rooms even have a private terrace with views of the old town. Guests also have access to the on-site sauna, Jacuzzi, fitness center, sensorial showers, hammam and outdoor pool (open seasonally).
Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of Paul Cezanne and the home of one of France’s most renowned opera festivals, is a hub of arts and culture. Saunter through the Musee Granet, filled with paintings and sculptures of artists who took inspiration from the region, and continue through the Mazarin district, where townhouses of wealthy 17th- and 18th-century aristocrats still stand. Take a day trip to Marseilles to experience a more cosmopolitan vibe and bustling Mediterranean port city. Be sure to walk the Cours Mirabeau -- a tree-lined avenue with cafes, restaurants, mansions and boutiques -- and also a lovely spot for a coffee and croissants or a romantic candlelit dinner.
