Saint Antonin sur Bayon is an extremely small village which spreads out over the 1 753 hectares on the green slopes to the south of the Sainte Victoire mountain, just a few kilometers from Aix en Provence.
Looked over by the abrupt sides of the mountain the village sits on a small plateau surrounded by ridges and pretty little mountain valley and has only a few houses within it's territory.
As it's name suggests Saint Antonin is crossed from East to West by the pretty stream : the Bayon. You'll discover the superb landscapes that Cézanne saw when he came walking in the area. Nature hasn't changed , verdant, wild and magnificently preserved. Saint Antonin has remained a haven of peace which you can discover and enjoy from the scented paths around the village.
The only road leading to Saint-Antonin snakes up the mountain side and is really superb bordered by the wonderful landscapes , drive slowly to really take in the beauty of the surroundings...!
Don't miss: La Maison de Sainte-Victoire which offers a variety of information about Sainte Victoire and the geology of the upper Vallée de l'Arc, and a local products shop with books and guides .., and an extremely interesting exhibition of local species : animals , flora, plants and trees... etc. (open from 10h to 18h).
