Puyricard is a charming and lively small town in the countryside outside Aix-en-Provence. In the village you'll find a grocery store, three boulangerie-pâtisseries, a pizzeria, and a wonderful restaurant, in addition to the local commerces. The picturesque town squares, with their regular Pétanque players, feel like they are right out of a Marcel Pagnol movie.  Each Friday morning there is a farmer's market selling the freshest produce, cheeses and local specialties. There is a convenient bus from Puyricard to Aix, with a large supermarket along the way for more extensive shopping trips.

Aix-en-Provence is undoubtedly one of France's most beautiful cities, with the relaxed ambiance characteristic of the south. Famous for its artistic and cultural heritage, Aix will enchant visitors with its wide tree-lined avenues, narrow winding streets full of 17th and 18th century buildings, numerous fountains, charming squares, old churches, mansions, cafés and boutiques. The surrounding countryside was immortalized by the Impressionist painter Cézanne. Enjoy the landscapes and the magical light of the villages, vineyards and villas of this culturally rich corner of Provence.
