Montagne Sainte Victoire is a breathtakingly charismatic limestone massif, 1011 meters high, that sprouts suddenly from the vinyards and lavender fields of rural Provence in South-eastern France. Although alpine in nature, and affording great views of them, it is cut off from the Alps by the Rhone river. The mountain is best known  as a repeated motif in the work of the great post-impressionist painter, Paul Cézanne, who painted it more than fifty times Topped by a simple cross above a chapel, the mountain affords spectacular views across the rolling farmland of Provence, and north to the peaks of the southern Alps.
