September is a great month in Nice, Hotel Villa la Tour

0 Comment
… it’s one of my preferred month at the Côte d’Azur- especially after « La Rentree » when the kids go back to school and Parisians go back to their jobs – its usually great weather, lively but without the oppresive crowds and heat. Just perfect for the “insider”….


During your stay I would recommend to visite the museum Picasso, in Antibes (very easy to reach from our hotel Villa la Tour) see the above picture

You also can see for the moment Picasso & Cezanne in Aix-en-Provence:

( 1 1/2 hours by bus or train from Nice)

I’ll say I know Cézanne! He was my one and only master! Of course I have looked at his
paintings… I have spent years studying them…(Picasso to Brassaï)

The Picasso Cézanne exhibition focuses on the subtle links between these two giants in art: the direct influence of theforce of the “father of modern art” on the young artist arriving in France in 1900, or the mature musings of the man wholiked to say I live in Cézanne’s place ? Even if it is not flagrant in his work, Cézanne was much admired by Picasso and

often in his thoughts: Cézanne! He was like a father to us all.


After Cézanne in Provence (2006), the Comminute du Pays d’Aix, the Musée Granet and the Réunion des muséesnationaux are again partners in the organisation of an exhibition in Provence, at the foot of Mont Sainte Victoire.
