Head for the Aix countryside!
Just a few kilometres from Aix-en-Provence, on the Plateau de Puyricard, you can just make out the groves of almond trees, the mythical trees of Provence, in the distance. Enter the Jardins du Roy René and admire the almond grove which unfolds before you: there are several hundreds of almond trees around the famous confectionery. And while you’re admiring the almond trees in flower, make the most of it and visit the Musée du Roy René to learn about all the secrets of the Almond tree in Provence. A true local gastronomic heritage, the calisson owes its fame to the almond, the emblem of Provence. But before enjoying one, take the time to wander around the almond groves and see all its beauty.
