St Paul de Vence is one of France’s most beautiful hilltop towns. The stunning views from this medieval town will mesmerise you, the art galleries, cafes and boutiques will tempt you. These views and the perfect light have attracted many artists and writers to make St Paul de Vence their home. Original works of art from some of the more famous residents fill the walls of the Colombe d’Or, a beautiful family owned hotel that has been here since the twenties.
Of course, such a perfect picture town attracts many tourists. Come after the tour buses leave and join the locals playing boules. A wander through the narrow cobblestoned streets will reveal old stone fountains, flower adorned squares, faded shutters, old doorways and hidden alcoves. Bougainvillea covered houses invite many photographs!
