Alan Rogers Review

Aix is a busy, attractive town with a delightful pedestrian-friendly centre just waiting to be explored. There is much to visit in the area and Marseilles is within easy reach using the frequent train service. Chantecler is a pleasant, eight-hectare campsite set in mixed woodland with an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. It is particularly well situated on the southeast edge of the town, close to the motorway and only minutes, by a good bus service, from the city centre and the main station. The site provides 271 hedged and shaded pitches (over 200 for touring units) arranged in mature woodland with good facilities. Whilst this is a popular site which can get very busy in July and August, it is well run by a friendly, enthusiastic management.

The town has something to offer everyone, from excellent, modern shopping to numerous museums and cultural sites, and endless restaurants and bars. Cézanne’s studio and the Caumont Centre d’Art are nearby and the Office du Tourisme arranges a variety of excursions on a weekly basis to the surrounding area, ranging from bird sanctuaries in the Camargue to Marseille and the Luberon. Château de Barben, the oldest castle in Provence, and the Zoo de Barben are 20 km. away.
