The direct train will get you to Marseille, then Aix is just 30kms away by car or by local bus.
Once there, find yourself a seat on a terrace and watch the world go by over a coffee or a pastis. Take some time to visit Cezanne's studio and, if that leaves you feeling inspired, why not head out of town and do a bit of sketching yourself.
If painting isn't for you, explore the area, indulge in a some wine-tasting or join the locals in a game of boules. You're on holidays, you have all the time in the world.
