Are you holidaying in Nice, whether to study French or just to enjoy the sun, and would like to explore the French riviera ?

Why not discover Saint Paul de Vence ?

At St Paul de Vence we like to…

  • Walk along the ramparts towers the village, entering through the gate at Vence
  • Wander through the streets discovering historical monuments, archways, towers, ornate buildings and houses
  • Visit the chapel designed by artist Belge Falon
  • Roam the galleries, workshops and boutiques
  • Soak in the atmosphere in the mythical square where boules is played, imagine Yves Montant and Lino Ventura playing there just as they did many years ago
  • Have a drink at Café de la Place, where artists once wrote about the village’s history, and learn about them in the streets (Tobiasse, Chagall, Soutine, Léger, Jacques Prévert…)
  • Have a meal at La Colombe d’Or which has served some of the greatest artists of the 20th century
  • Try the local wine (the vineyards are just below the village’s ramparts), with a tasting and chance to try Provençal specialties at La Petite Cave de Saint Paul de Vence
  • Try Provençal specialties (olive oil, tapenade, pesto, terrine)
  • Go shopping at the farmers’ market
  • Discover the town at night with a candlelit tour every Thursday during summer (5 euros per person) and appreciate the village’s calmness and serenity, the evening coolness of the streets, their stories and their secrets
