A Weekend In Saint-Paul De Vence

I had the offer to stay with some family friends in Saint-Paul De Vence recently, and after hearing from my parents that it was somewhere they went together many years ago, I decided to head there for a weekend. Located on a picturesque hilltop just north of Nice, Saint-Paul is the home of the artists and galleries of the French Riviera.

As we drove away from the sea and towards the mountains, I caught sight of the town. It was really is breathtaking and in my opinion could definitely serve up some inspiration for a Disney castle. I stayed in a lovely French chateau, a short walk through the woods, until I came to the viewpoint overlooking the town. I spent the weekend walking through it's tiny cobbled streets past ivy-covered houses and hotels, eating ice-cream and lazing about by the pool.
