Your Destination:

Aix-en-Provence was built on hot springs around 16 miles (30km) north of Marseille. Aix-en-Provence is a chic and fascinating short break destination. It’s a city steeped in history, which you’ll immediately feel just walking around the charming streets. Aix-en-Provence has been called ‘the city of a thousand fountains’. And while you may not count quite that many, there are dozens of beautiful examples of all ages, sizes and designs scattered throughout the city.

The stunning capital of Provence is surprisingly easy to get to by train – it’s just over three hours from Paris. Catch the Eurostar to Paris (or Lille) and then change on to the high-speed TGV. You’ll arrive at Aix-en-Provence TGV, a little way out of town. Hop on to the regular shuttle bus for a 15-minute ride into the heart of town.
