St Paul De Vence was by far one of the most amazing places I've seen. From the stone walled town to the rolling hills all around it was fantastic. The winding tiny streets and quaint little shops were very interesting. Watch out for high tourist prices, but that's to be expected. There aren't many words to describe this place without... More

Found Saint Paul in '88, driving around the south of France. Curious at the walled 'city' found the wonderland of fountains, art, cafes and beautiful ancient to us Australians. Will never forget it and returned 20yrs later to show my artist husband probably where we should be living...such an atmosphere.

The narrow streets, really sidewalks to us today, offer many shops with an assortment of things to purchase. From fine art galleries to the t-shirt shops, hidden spaces of fine dining establishments and people's homes, all door after doorway. It is keep very clean and tidy, with blooming flowers in pots along the way. It becomes still and quiet after... More

This is a friend's favorite medieval town and when we had the chance to visit we took it. I asked her why she never gets tired of visiting the and she said it is because every time she visits, the place it looks different. Walking from the parking lot to the town, one could already see how promising this place... More

Approaching Saint-Paul-de-Vence, you will see the village atop a spur of land between two valleys where it has perched since Medieval Times. It's 13th century ramparts are still intact. You will enter through a main gate to start your walk along pedestrian only streets past lovely churches, shaded squares and fortified towers. We saw several men lawn bowling beneath a... More

The town had character! All little tiny streets / sidewalks / alley ways. With a bunch of little shops and galleries. Meet a very nice couple that were artists in town. Their work was fair priced and they signed it as well with a little note on the back. Get your walking shoes on.

This little town was like stepping back in time. Had easy parking garage and short walk up the hill to this walled in city. Started by having a cup of coffee at the little open restaurant and spent the next few hours visiting all the little shops and art displays. Was fantastic and everyone was very nice and helpful.
