Pourrières is a large village built on a rocky outcrop between Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Maximin. It stands immediately opposite Paul Cézanne's beloved Montagne Sainte-Victoire, and is home to a number of artefacts testifying to the Roman presence in the village. Lying on the edge of the Bouches-du-Rhône, the village looks out over splendid vineyards irrigated by the Arc river. A number of restored stone houses – typical of Provence – line the narrow streets which lead to the beautiful village square.
