Got off to a bit of a slow start as we managed through the jetlag of a 9 hour time difference. Enjoyed fruit and yogurt on the patio for breakfast. Later, we’d have salad nicoise and ceasar for lunch and then dinner at a Corsican restaurant, Le Contrepoint (https://www.yelp.com/biz/le-contrepoint-aix-en-provence). The restaurant was busy and we hadn’t made reservations, so we felt lucky to snag a table in the cozy dining room. I opted for the corsican beef tartare – with tomatoes and paprika, Paul got a fondue with potatoes and cured pork and then we had a chilled rose to go along with it.
Cézanne live and worked in Aix and the Provence region. Many of his works were inspired by the landscape here. His last workshop has been preserved with many of the objects featured in numerous still life paintings.
