Perched on an an outcrop at an altitude of 400 meters Puyloubier is pleasantly located at the foot of the green pastures leading up top the Sainte-Victoire Mountain. Surrounded by vast woods and rocky landscapes, Puyloubier offers a variety of fantastic wild and preserved landscapes.
Puyloubier is one of the points on the Cézanne trail which starts at Aix and which via the communes in the Aix area visits the places where Cézanne lived and worked. Puyloubier is without doubt one of the places which inspired the artist enormously.
Here you'll be surrounded by the blue and grey rocky landscapes of the Saint Victoire which Cézanne was so gifted at capturing on canvas.
A number of chapels and shrines are available to visit in Puyloubier and are a good excuse to go off walking in the surrounding area. Towards Pourrières, you can visit the Institution des Invalides de la Légion Etrangère which was opened in 1954 in the "Général's" château which seems to be a uniform Museum, as well as ceramic, binding and wrought iron work workshops!
