Heard a lot about this village, and since we visited the Marc Chagall museum the day before and the weather remained sunny, we decided to drive up to St Paul one Thursday. First view of it was lovely from the road, the village perched above the mountain with flowers and greenery skirting it. We parked at the public paying car... More

My husband and I just LOVED St Paul! Easy parking, easy walk up, great atmosphere. We loved looking at all the Art Stores and I was able to buy many gifts. We stayed in the town next door called Vence which was nice but not much to do. We were grateful it neighboured St Paul so we could visit often.... More

We visited this charming village during our long weekend in Nice, and how glad we were we dis. A beautiful old place full of narrow cobbled streets full of character and charm. If you go by car you have to park just at the edge and then walk up the medieval narrow lanes which are dotted with lovely art galleries... More

Visitors to the Nice region should definitely dedicate a day to St Paul and the nearby Fondation Maeght, where so many artists, past and present, inspired by the area's sea, scenery, historic villages and brilliant light, are now represented at the Foundation centre and the town's many galleries. Restaurants, ice cream and a variety of little shops add to the... More

There are many beautiful & interesting villages in Provence, many in the vicinity of Cannes & Nice. But St.Paul-de-Vence remains one of the best jewels. It is a medieval hill village that offers a superb vista on the surrounding landscapes from the Alps to the blue Med. It is extremely well preserved and decorated due to the number of the... More

I expected it to be somewhat different, but all in all it was a very nice little village full of interesting designer shops. You can visit the whole town, fairy straight out of a storybook, in about 2 hours. No cars allowed :) Saddly every restaurant was closed for the afternoon due to the season.
