Due to a Rick Steves' guidebook, we located this nifty independent bookstore on an Aix-en-Provence side street. There is a large red and white teapot on a sign at the front door. Though small, it contains a large number of local maps and guidebooks, books...More

Full-service bakery/cafe and bookstore/library. My friend and I sat here for a few hours and enjoyed the quiet but not silent atmosphere and read for a few hours. A great break in the rain.

This is honestly one of my favorite places in Aix-en-Provence. It's a great place to hang out, and was one of the most enjoyable places to be. As a native english speaker, it was wonderful to go somewhere without worrying about my bad French, and...More
