St Paul is situated in the hills outside of Nice. By bus it will take you one hour - bus nr 400 - cost of a one way ticket €1,50. We went for an afternoon and the little medieval town simply took our breath away. It is beautifully preserved with cared gardens, flowers, cobbled streets and a vast amount of... More

It is a small fortified village form the 1400s. A little walking street cuts it in half and is full of beautiful art galleries. When you reach the other side of the village you will have a breathtaking view of the coast line.

A pleasant hour or so bus ride from Nice. Incredibly picturesque village. Photo ops abound. Interesting boutiques offering not only touristy souvenirs but quality clothing and jewelry. Many art galleries to browse through. Shop and gallery owners are incredibly pleasant and friendly, surprising for a town seeing hordes of tourists. We were there on a Saturday, the first day of...

Last week we visited St. Paul de Vence for the 3rd time. The others were in 1979 and 2013. This little ancient hilltop town is one of the most enchanting places we have ever visited in 40 years of travel. It does have an abundance of art galleries but they are so subtly placed in the historic buildings they don't... More

The village was a border stronghold in 1388, an artists colony in the1920s and a spectacular film set in the 1950s. They say the village receives around 2.5 million visitors a year but when we were in the village yesterday there... More

If you are visiting Nice or the French Riviera, take the time for a day trip to St. Paul de Vence. It's a charming drive to a medieval village that is delightful to all of the senses. If you want to tour the perfume centers, drive on to Grasse for a further sensual delight. A nice lunch, good wine, beautiful... More

I always enjoy wandering around the cobbled streets of this beautiful village, admiring its spectacular views and popping in and out of its many art galleries. I would definitely recommend visiting Saint-Paul de Vence.
