May in France

Living France - - CONTENTS -

Elegant pale stone ar­chi­tec­ture, colour­ful mar­kets and charm­ing squares make Aix-en-Provence a splen­did town to ex­plore on foot. The for­mer cap­i­tal of Provence is dom­i­nated by the cap­ti­vat­ing land­scape of Mon­tagne Ste-Vic­toire, a source of in­spi­ra­tion for Aix’s most fa­mous son – Paul Cézanne – who could see it from his house in the town. From 20-28 May, Aix cel­e­brates one of the re­gion’s tra­di­tional mu­si­cal in­stru­ments – the ga­lou­bet-tam­bourin (mu­si­cal pair­ing of a flute and tam­bourine) dur­ing the Fes­ti­val du Tam­bourin. aix­en­provence­tourism.com
