A secret garden in Aix-en-Provence

Le Pigonnet cultivates discretion, tucked away in a residential area, just a few minutes walk from Aix-en-Provence center. Practically nothing gives it away at the entrance – you need to go up the alley lined with plane trees to see the hotel, which feels like going back in time to a Provence of the past.

The old pigeon house and a few mullioned windows evoke the original 18th century foundations. Leaves crawl across the façade and the green shutters ooze timeless charm. A sculpture of Saint Peter holds the key to this garden of Eden, which is the hotel's most cherished treasure.

The hotel's history is linked to the revival of thermal baths at the beginning of the 20th century. Things sped up in 1924 when the Swellen family took over the property. For three generations they injected and fostered outstanding character perpetuated by Esprit de France today.

Le Pigonnet currently brings Aix locals and tourists from around the globe together via fine dining and music. Traditions and modern art de vivre are rolled into one, making the hotel an ideal base for touring the south. It is also a destination in itself. Relax to the sound of the water features and walk in Paul Cézanne's footsteps. No need to go far to escape as you explore the delightful sections one after another.
