Saint Paul de Vence is one of the oldest medieval villages on the French Riviera. It is considered to be one of the prettiest hilltop towns in Provence. Circling the town are ramparts that overlook gardens, orchards, and villas. You can also see the peaks of the Alps in the distance. This pedestrian-friendly village is replete with buildings that date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, vaulted passageways and ancient fountains. The town is a mecca for artists. Masters like Matisse, Picasso and Chagall have left behind numerous artworks here. The winding cobblestone streets lined with old stone cottages are studded with art studios, galleries and museums. There is also the Fondation Maeght. This is a museum of modern art set amid a landscaped sculpture garden. The hamlet also boasts a stellar dining scene with its many cafés and restaurants that will leave you spoilt for choice. You could also meet a sommelier, join culinary classes or experience the hospitality of a local family while here.
