Very popular destination so car parking could be an issue (try the underground parking) and spend a good two hours wandering around the tiny winding streets and be amazed at the number of artist shops/studios. Find the citadel walls and take a walk around them for glorious views. Beware of the shops selling 'home made' jams and chutneys etc at... More

This little town is about a 45 minute drive from Cannes through some beautiful countryside. Cobble stone streets, lots of shopping and eatery's. This town is offered as an excursion by Norwegian Cruise Line, so that should tell you something. Plenty of photography opportunities and interesting sites. (fountains and arches etc.) Lodging is available for anyone who would want to... More

It was interesting to see a medieval town; however it was surprising to find a myriad of shops hawking touristy items for sale. The art galleries were very nice. We were glad we went even though there didn't seem to be a lot besides shops.

This is one of my favorite old villages in France, sitting high above and overlooking Cannes and the Mediterranean. It benefits from the light and sun, so many impressionists have painted. The village, while catering largel to tourists, still maintains its own residents hence a life that benefits from those who reside in it. Many high end art, jewelry and... More

This amazing walled village (pictured) sits atop a hill overlooking the main town of St Paul de Vence and surrounding countryside - views are beautiful, especially from a tiny bar sipping French champagne on a balmy evening watching the sun go down. We stayed at a B and B in the town, guided by our hostess, we drove to a... More

We stayed here in a small villa close to the village and absolutely love it. St. Paul de Vence is a must see when coming to South of France. The beautiful stone built village with its unique art galleries and little shops and stores is a wonderful place to be and you can feel the spirit of the 50ties/60ties when... More

As we were staying in Tourette's sur Loup, driving to Saint Paul de Vence was a must. We are here the last week of June, so the tourists (like us!) are starting to come. But it's A very quaint and picturesque town with cobbled streets and many shops to spend your Money! Go early, before the day gets hot and... More
