La Sainte Victoire - Beaurecueil


Beaurecueil is a small, peaceful village at the foot of Mount Sainte Victoire. Although it is away from the region's busy highways, Beaurecueil is not far from the centre of Aix en Provence.

Beaurecueil - Maison





After having followed a very pretty road bordered by delightful countryside dotted with reddish rocks, vast flat fields and flowering trees, you will arrive in the village by passing in front of the "château de Beaurecueil". This imposing residence is today a retirement home.





Lovely bourgeois properties can be found nestled in the countryside. Magnificent walks can be taken around the village, and it is not uncommon to come across groups of amateur painters with their easels propped up in the middle of this beautiful natural environment

Although there are few historic remains or monuments to visit, the peaceful atmosphere and superb countryside more than compensates... and it's all only 15 minutes from Aix en Provence!
