Beautiful village, well preserved but in July it was a tad too touristy. I'm a tourist too, but I don't much like tourist tatt. The art looked pretty but obviously aimed at ripping off tourists. Shame, it's a great little town and well worth visiting but it was too busy for us and so we escaped to Vence old town... More

Wander through the streets from shop to shop and you'll see crafts of all sorts. An artist's haven with huge views over the countryside.

If you visit the South of France and don't visit St. Paul you have really missed out. I have been visiting for over fifty years, and it only gets better. It is the second largest art market after Paris - so you will find very high quality art in the many galleries around the village. Do they cater for tourists... More

This town was the highlight of our trip. What a beautiful village built on a hill overlooking lovely countryside. We spent 1/2 the day here. We had a great time walking through the old town looking at handmade leather goods, wine shops and art galleries. We will definitely be back.

This is a charming little village near Nice, nice to stop by for a couple of hours. Most of the shops are overpriced and expensive, with lots of art gallery shops on the Main Street. Best time to visit is first thing in the morning before the tourist buses arrive.

Stunning place! Can't wait to go back. The village is so beautiful and the views too. Great location to visit the Riviera and the surrounding villages.

We have visited this beautiful hillside village on numerous occasions and have always found it special. this year it was not crowded which made it more pleasant to wander around and the quality of goods found in the shops from clothing to crafts and food products seemed vastly improved. The galleries full of interesting sculptures and paintings are worth browsing... More

This beautiful hill top town is completely walled and a joy to visit. Narrow streets filled with art galleries and some gift shops. Explore the tiny alley ways which run off the main street to get a better non touristy feel. Work your way uphill to the church and find the tiny icecream shop opposite the entrance. Italian, yes, but... More

The village is in great condition an d nice to stroll around. I can see what other reviewers mean - in the middle of high season it would be very busy and hot in a sunny day. We packed in the underground carpark which was right squeeze for our rental people carrier. If you like boutiques selling crafts then this... More

One of those glorious little villages of south France. Touristic yes. Beautiful yes. Worth seeing definitely. The main street is adorned by numerous art galleries, some not without interest. Plenty of restaurants.
