Beautiful stone village with lots of souvenir shops and art work
Once you rent an apartment in Nice with us make sure you keep half a day or a whole day to take a tour to Saint-Paul de Vence! It is one of this village with lots of historical anecdotes and surprises. I don’t want to say too much about it and spoil it for you but some of the famous painters such as Picasso and Chagall stayed in this village when they were first starting out on the French Riviera. You’ll find some of their artwork in a local hotel and restaurant.
The village is located on the country side of Nice only 40min driving from there. Once you are in the main part of the town, you won’t be allowed to go any further. You have to access the streets cobblestone streets and sidewalks by foot which is an absolute pleasure! You’ll come across great little bistros, shops and of course lots of local artists shops. The view is breath taking from this quiet little gem. It’s also very peaceful here and if you have time, don’t hesitate to sit on a terrace and enjoy the local ambiance. Well worth the trip!
On the way back you can take the backroads towards the village of Gourdon, also a little treat to yourself!
