Monday 10 November was a very wet day in Nice and its surrounds and it's a shame I had to go to the Cote d'Azur to discover that my shoes leaked. I was soaked to the skin but the weather made this charming, old, hilltop village all the more atmospheric. I went back in the sunshine a few days later... More

It is a delight visiting this amazing place. As you walk along the main pathway of the village it seems as though "the world" as you know it is far, far away. On each side are restaurants and shops with a number of art galleries. I particularly liked the buildings that just seemed to exude peace and tranquility.

It's incredible how many painters, sculptors, actors have been living or passed some time in this incredible, small town, whose streets seem like maze. Surrounded by beautiful scenery of hills, woods, villas and old houses, gives you a great reason to visit any time of the year. Summers are super crowded and busy, so if you prefer quieter time, spring... More

Next to Nice, before Cannes, this village seems ancient as soon as Siena, Montepulciano e Montalcino, in Italy. There is controversy over which one is older, and peopple of Saint Paul disgist if you ask about. But ii's not importante: the really is that Saint Paul is amazing.

On our drive from Cannes to Nice, we decided to stop in this little village for a quick lunch. We ended up spending a good amount of the afternoon here, walking around the gorgeous streets and entering the adorable shops. Everything about this place is magical; from the great art galleries, to the mountain-top setting. Make sure to stop here... More

St-Paul-de-Vence is a beautiful medieval village stuffed with great art galleries on the inside and stunning visuals on the outside. It sits atop its hillside like a goddess atop an ancient mount--beautiful and unchanged after centuries. The surrounding countryside is a perfect back-drop for this special place. And just when you think it can't get any better, it does. The... More
