Saint Paul de Vence

Saint-Paul or Saint-Paul-de-Vence is a commune only about 20 km away from the house. One of the oldest medieval towns on the French Riviera, it is well known for its modern and contemporary art museums and galleries such as the Fondation Maeght which is located nearby.

Saint Paul de VenceThe visit of the old city is very enjoyable. Numerous art shops and galleries around to keep you busy for a while. You’ll find  great food there (check out the Colombe d’Or for something really special).

If like me, you like the work of Chagall, then you can see the place he is resting in the local cemetery.

By the way, there are quite a few famous people living around. To give you an idea, the property prices in Saint-Paul-de-Vence have been stable recently, hovering around €10,000 per square metre. Prices of medium-sized villas in good locations are between €2 and €5 million.
