Pretty Village

Pretty village, every other shop is an art gallery. Plenty of restaurants and cafes. Steep streets if you are challenged mobility wise.

The medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence is a beautiful little place whose quirky small shops, cobbled little streets, and air of sophistication absolutely oozes charm. It is well worth a visit.

All shops are run by non residents of the walled city pretty much. The old cobbled streets and small passageways are what we came to see.

One of the prettiest old towns I have visited. Very commercial and touristy but the houses and architecture are worth seeing. Had no problem parking in the public underground parking, but it was 4.5E for a couple of hours. Maybe the other parking places are less expensive. When I visited in May there were plenty of tourists but not crazy... More

We arrived in the afternoon, obtained a map from the Tourist Office, and set off exploring the walled town. Strolled around the perimeter, along the battlements, for excellent views. Impressive cemetary nestling at the furthest end. Criss-crossed the narrow interior streets to take in the architecture, shops, and ambience. No need to rush, and can't get lost!

Saint-Paul de Vence is easily accessible via a public bus route from Nice. The road up through the local neighbourhoods is pleasant and a good opportunity to see some of the home construction materials used on the Cote d’ Azure over the years. Saint-Paul is the most gorgeous medieval French hillside village and I love that vehicle access is restricted... More

Beautiful fortified village with picturesque winding streets and nice views of the countryside. Lots of art galleries and other shops to explore.

This is the 2nd time in 2 years that I visited Saint-Paul-de-Vence. The ancient walled city has so much history and be sure you visit the church. Stunning as most of the churches are in France and Italy. There are tons of cute shops and the prices are reasonable. There are a number of places to sit and have a... More

It was not our first trip. We simply could not be in Province without seeing it again. The charm, the atmosphere and the medieval character are wonderful. Since our previous visit, however, it has become extremely commercial.

As far as I'm concerned, St. Paul de Vence is a "must see" in southern France. We really enjoyed having breakfast every morning in the town plaza. Just relax, look around and you'll fall in love with this charming town.
