 Saint Paul de Vence, the Village
Built on its rocky outcrop and surrounded by its ramparts built on the orders of Francois 1st, St Paul is certainly one of the most beautiful villages in Provence.
The beauty of the surrounding area, quality of life and exceptional light has inspired numerous famous artists, painters, writers and poets, some of whom took up residence in the village.
 Saint Paul de Vence, church
You can find signatures from some of these famous artists at the Fondation Maeght which has a large collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings and other graphic works from the XXth century.
Walk around the narrow and so picturesque streets of the village, from the Porte Royale to the Porte Sud via the (pedestrianised) and you will discover magnificent stone facades from the XVIth and XVIIIth centuries.
 Saint Paul de Vence, large fountain
Lose yourself in the maze of charming streets, the floral exuberance of the gardens, the little shady squares, ancient fountains, gateways and porches, or wonderful windows and you'll see why St Paul is a favourite subject for photographers.
 Saint Paul de Vence, street
Visit some of the artists' and craft workshops or museums or go shopping in the provencal boutiques (often full of visitors in summer).
 Saint Paul de Vence, fountain
From the ramparts, wonderful views over the surrounding hills, the French Riviera and of course the sea. No need to repeat that the landscapes are magnificent...
St Paul de Vence is true to its reputation as an exceptional and unique place... But let's not say it too loud, St Paul is still a small village which shouldn't be disfigured by large car parks capable of hosting convoys of coaches!!
