The Provencal town of Aix en Provence is not far from Marseilles but is surrounded by a picturesque landscape of lavender fields and vineyards. It is renowned for its many beautiful fountains, as well as the famous men such as Cezanne and Zola who have sat at the cafes along the plane-tree lined central boulevard and admired the historic buildings.
