The Jasde Bouffan farmhouse is located in a reservation to the west of the old town of Earl of Aix. In 1859, Louis-Auguste Cézanne, the banker father of the great impressionist painter Cézanne, bought the property. The young Cézanne began his artistic career right next to the sheepfold of the Bufang farmhouse. The attic was once Cezanne's studio. This cozy farmhouse also entered Cezanne's landscape paintings. Due to internal disputes in the family, Cezanne sold the Bufang farmhouse in 1899. You can visit with a 15-euro Aix city pass and a 12-euro Cézanne pass. A 20-minute walk from the train station.
The place where Cézanne lived is also where he first started painting. You cannot visit by yourself, you need to follow the tour guide. Sometimes the tour guide will be one every day, so you must check the tour guide time before going. There are not many things to visit, but it is a quiet place.
It’s best to book the itinerary in advance at the visitor center. The tour guide uses English to explain the whole process. However, for a person who has not contacted English after graduating from university, I can understand 60% of it, which is roughly the introduction of Cezanne's life here before Scene or something. It feels like a French country and will come again if you have the opportunity.
There are not only a lot of goats, but also rich infrastructure. The farmhouse is now a small museum in addition to being a farm zoo.
Sheeppen Farmhouse is a very good farm. There are not only a lot of goats, but also rich infrastructure for wool processing.
