Although my partner and I have been to Aix many times, we only just discovered Pavillon de Vendome. According to Wikipedia, the house was "commissioned by Louis, Duke of Vendôme (1612-1669) as a place where he could take his lover, Lucrèce de Forbin Solliès." It...More

A beautiful 17th century house set in a lovely garden built by Louis de Mercoeur, Duc de Vendome, as a hideaway to carry on a love affair with Lucrece de-Forbin Sollies. Lucky girl - certainly an extravagant place for a bit of nooky! Beautifully proportioned...More

When I was staying in Aix-en-Provence, we were right down the street from the Pavillon de Vendome. We would often go there to sit and watch the French school children eating their lunches--all of. us enjoying the beauty of this pavillion.

I was all excited to see this beautiful house filled with its furniture and furnishings, as if the owners left a moment ago. Not. Even though it is described as containing furniture and such, it has a couple (two) dressers standing in bare rooms. They...More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this park so close to town yet hidden away.... the story that goes along with the mansion/sculptured gardens is equally fascinating!! you can still see the area where the carriage pulled into the main level of the...More

The weather was great when we got there, so we could enjoy sitting on the bench in the garden. It's well maintained, gives amazing French feeling, like a mini Versailles. There is another garden besides it, it's smaller but also very romantic. We went inside...More
