Located just north of Marseille in southern France and near the Mediterranean Sea, Aix-en-Provence offers the quintessential French experience with historic architecture, hilltop scenery, and exquisite food. A quaint university town and bohemian intellectual center—artist Paul Cézanne and writer Ernest Hemingway once frequented its charming cafes. Fall in love with mountain views, tree-lined streets, and ornate foundations without the crowds of larger European cities. Take a flight to Paris or a train through the countryside for a weekend away.
Students at UA Aix-en-Provence live in French homestays, an excellent opportunity to experience the culture and language first-hand. Carefully selected, our hosts all have an interest in sharing their culture with students.
