Lonely Planet review

In 1859 Cézanne’s father bought Le Jas de Bouffan, a country manor west of Aix centre where Cézanne painted furiously – 36 oils and 17 watercolours in the decades that followed depicting the house, farm, chestnut alley, green park and so forth. Visits are by guided tour only and must be reserved in advance at the tourist office. To get to Le Jas de Bouffan, take bus 6 from La Rotonde (av Victor Hugo) to the Corsy stop; by foot it is a 20-minute walk from town.
