Plan on Visiting the Musée Renoir at Cagnes-sur-Mer

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

It was Renoir’s birthday on February 25th, which has prompted me to write a little about his final home at Cagnes-sur-Mer, now the Musée Renoir. It’s easily do-able from Aix and a must once this wave of cold weather has ended. A sunny day is ideal as the views from his terrace are lovely.

…Continue reading here to discover Domaine les Collettes – Musée Renoir – in Cagnes-sur-Mer. This was Pierre Auguste Renoir’s residence and last art studio. Despite arthritis he continued to paint until the day he died on December 3rd, 1919. While you are there make sure to visit the garden and take a look at the old olive trees, which caused him some artistic frustration.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
