St-Paul-de-Vence

Having explored the region in a bit more detail, my favourite town in South-Eastern France (so far) has got to be St-Paul-de-Vence. It is a medieval village known for being one of the oldest on the French Riviera. Throughout the decades St-Paul-de-Vence has been a refuge for artists, intellectuals and celebrities and today it is famous for it’s contemporary art galleries and museums.

Unfortunately, unlike most nearby towns it is quite touristy. However the sheer volume of intricately woven cobbled streets means that its easy to shake off the camera-happy tour groups and discover the town in peace. We visited on a beautifully sunny day and spent a very happy morning exploring before stopping for lunch at a restaurant called La Sierra for its amazing roof terrace views.

Here are a few pictures in which I attempt to capture the charm of such a picturesque town.
