Cezanne lived and painted here, and the villa itself dates back to the 18th century. Today, 23 guestrooms and suites outfitted in vibrant colors and comfortable furnishings cater to discerning guests, as does a renowned restaurant serving Provençal, French and Mediterranean specialties — ask to dine on the vine-trellised patio for a romantic rendezvous.
