I can't believe I've never heard of this beautiful walled hilltop village until we were on a cruise and heard they had the best Gelato in France. They have a whole lot more than the best Gelato (although it was the best I'd ever had - homemade Citrus Gelato topped with Merigune). It was so classy, great shops and amazing... More

A beautiful hill top town, steeped in history and culture. Well worth a visit. We sent out if season and it was very quiet. Picturesque narrow streets wind their way round the town to several view points. The place is immaculate although almost every retail outlet us now an art gallery it seems a bit Disneyesque. Nevertheless we enjoyed it.... More

Saint Paul de Vence is indeed a most beautiful village, however consider what time of the day and year you make your visit. As the streets are very narrow, should you visit during the peak season and during the peak time of day, it could be less enjoyable. During summer time, plan your visit for early morning or late afternoon... More

Such a beautiful place, full of history, art, and light. The town is small, everyone was friendly, food was great. Definitely recommend a visit if you are staying near or in Nice.

My wife and I visited st.paul in the month of December and had no idea of what this place was like, it definitely was a nice surprise. Old cobblestone streets, narrow passages, a glimpse of old life with very fine art modern galleries spread throughout the little town is how you can describe this town. There a couple of spectacular... More

The village is very nice,with amazing view points. It is small,so you can walk around everything for 2h with multiple picture-taking breaks. Definitely worth a visit!

We simply went for a walk because we wanted to take a photograph from the ramparts. We and ended up buying soap and clothes in the lovely Fragonard shop. The manageress on the day we were there deserves a mention. We always enjoy the rampart walk. Our walk back to our car yesterday through the village was a joy as... More

Was fantastic to experience this town on our tour of Europe. Surrounded by its rampards and lined with cobble stone walkways, if you have any artistic inclinations however slight they may be you will be inspired. Lots of quirky little shops and places to eat, it was a real adventure to explore the winding paths and admire the varying building... More
