Although St Paul de Vence is a nice village with great views close from Nice, it's still a tourist trap with high prices, commercial feel and a load of visitors. There's a lot of unspoilt hilltop villages with more authentic feel and great views in the area (see Saorge or St Jeannet).
FYI, we parked for free outside the village along the D2 and walk up to the village. The walking was actually the best part of our visit with great photo ops of the village.
