Hotel Overview


The expansive boulevard of Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence.

Rooms at Hotel des Gantes

Hotel des Gantes’ eleven rooms and suites combine historic ambience with modern comfort and design, with each one named for a celebrity associated with Aix-en-Provence; including Paul Cézanne, Émile Zola and Pablo Picasso. The rooms are all different, with the décor and styling of each a nod to their famous namesake – all share a level of comfort which will make sure your say in Aix-en-Provence is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Food and facilities

The hotel serves breakfast and is brilliantly located for enjoying the best restaurants in Aix-en-Provence, which are incredible in number and quality given the city’s size-  a particular favourite is the Michelin starred Le Clos de la Violette, a real jewel in Aix’s gastronomic crown.

Activities at Hotel des Gantes

The hotel is situated above the iconic café Les Deux Garçons, which has played host throughout its long history to such famous French luminaries as Cézanne, Zola and Albert Camus. Cézanne’s studio, which has remained pretty much as he left it when he died in 1906, is a fascinating place to visit, while Musée Granet has a great collection of paintings. The Cours Mirabeau is a beautiful and iconic road which is one of the liveliest parts of Aix-en-Provence and is a great place for a stroll. Lined with plane trees, it’s particularly notable for its fountains, especially the impressive Fontaine de la Rotonde, which makes up a roundabout at one end of the street.
