Mimet, landscape
There is no need here to look up in order to see the countryside - Mimet is the highest village in the department.

Turning its back on Marseilles, the village looks out over the plain of Aix-en-Provence. It is ideally situated for exploring the Etoile chain and is a favourite rallying point for walkers.


Mimet, street

Despite the large number of houses, the village has still managed to retain a unique sense of intimacy and conviviality.

The main road, Saint Sebastien, is cobbled and lined by old houses. This is where most of the little workshops are to be found: a fine leather goods craftsman trained a bar.


Mimet, stairway

At the end of the street, you will discover on the town hall square, the parish church which dominates the village.

Adjoining the church, the small Mistral lane, hosts a little further Eric Potter's pottery workshop which exhibits his works to the public.
