During a visit to Cannes, France, the desk clerk at ICH Carlton suggested renting a car to visit the medieval town of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a short 30 minute drive. I had very low expectations as I'd never even heard of it before. Needless to say, Saint-Paul's is the most magical, beautiful and art-filled places I've ever visited in my life. A... More

My wife and I spent a few hours walking around this village at dusk. I really like small atmospheric medieval towns (Carcassonne and Mdina in Malta spring to mind) and this is one of the best we have seen. What made it perfect was not only the gorgeous views, but the small arts shops, where you could find all sorts... More

St Paul de Vence is the most beautiful walled village. We arrived about 10.00 am on 13th August 2013 and crowds were at a minimum. The beauty of the village is unsurpassed. Spectacular views and quaint buildings. Incredibly narrow walkways, just added to the appeal. Only disappointment was my iPad was stolen whilst there. After arriving home six weeks later,... More

This tiny little village is very pretty with stunning views and lots of lovely little gift shops and arty places. A bit pricey but just as good for window shopping as buying !

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
