We have been staying here and will have spent 4 nights total in the village. I have been impressed with the charm, quaintness and historical nature of this town. Marc Chagall is buried here, and of course the town served as a fort to protect the people. The town seems to be an it spot for art, but it's more... More

I can't say enough about the beauty of this hilltown in the south of France. It is an artists' hamlet filled with art shoppes of all kinds. The views are spectacular; the little cemetary on the hill is filled with fresh flowers and you can easily see the resting place of Chagall. If you can do some steps, don't miss... More

Slighly touristy, it is the nicest of the 6 hilltop Riviera villages we visited in September. Spend time exploring the walkways, ramparts, and do take the tour of the museum --- its a nice way to get an overview of the history of St. Paul de Vence

We recently stayed just outside of St. Paul de Vence. It was one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been. It was exactly as I had imagined a Provençal village would be like- it did not disappoint! The tiny, cobblestoned streets and abundance of cafés and shops made it authentic and cozy. If you are wondering whether to... More

My boyfriend and I took a half day trip to Antibes, Cannes and Saint-Paul de Vence while in Nice last week. Saint-Paul de Vence was by far our favorite of the 3, and we actually wished that the entire day had been just at Saint-Paul de Vence. We could have spent days walking through the different alleyways and popping into... More

Vence and St Paul de Vince are great Romain villages as Avignon sorounded by walls. No car at all inside the walls but with free parking outside it. Great restaurants of Provance and Mediterranean food. Great Places with lot of cafés and restaurants with outside tables.

Gorgeous village! Amazing art and food to be found at every turn! Try Lilamand confiseur for the most stunning candied fruits, syrups ( ginger is to die for) and jellies! Reminded me of an italian village only cleaner and very well maintained. Well worth a visit!! See if you can get in at Le Tilleul for dinner!

All of it very well preserved or rebuilt following appropriate patterns. Great selection of restaurants and quality hotels. Perfect for an afternoon trip with dinner al fresco when vacationing in Nice
