We stayed at a lovely hotel called Le Pigonnet on the outskirts of Aix.
Botero: a dialogue with Picasso
We visited the Hôtel de Caumont in Aix-en-Provence to view an exhibition by Fernando Botero and Pablo Picasso. Botero is a famous Colombian artist who was heavily influenced by Picasso. Botero explores his artistic affinities with Picasso. Sixty works by Botero (oils, works on paper, and sculptures) is complemented by twenty major works by Picasso, originating from the collections in the Musée National Picasso-Paris and the Museo Picasso in Barcelona. Some of our favourite Botero paintings below:
Time to hand the car back
After 170 days with the Renault Scenic, unfortunately we had to hand back the car. Once again, the Euro Leasing that the French Government run is brilliant. If you are hiring a car for more than 21 days, this option is a brilliant option.
We are going back to the same apartment for one month this time. We loved Cannes and thought it is a great place hang out in winter.This entry was posted in Europe
