10 THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN SAINT PAUL DE VENCE. One of my all time favourite little mountain villages in the South of France is without hesitation Saint Paul de Vence. This little village has such history and charm, filled with countless of antique stores, art galleries and neat little boutiques selling curated fashion and accessories. They also have the most picturesque little Relais & Chateau property located in the village, Hotel le Saint-Paul which I love. It’s the perfect boutique hotel for a romantic get away. We ate dinner at their restaurant one night and the ambiance is absolutely magical and the food and beverage experience is absolutely mouth watering. Johan surprised me during our dinner with a present, an absolutely stunning sapphire/diamond bracelet that goes perfectly with my engagement rings.
I wanted to share my 10 favourite things to see and do in Saint Paul de Vence in this post so here we go! I hope you will find some new favourites!
Le Tilleul – Enjoy a romantic dinner here and make sure to book a table outside with the best sunset view. This place has such an amazing ambiance.
La Colombe d’Or – An absolutely stunning 5 star boutique hotel. Perfect for a romantic get away or make sure to stop by for lunch or dinner. The garden it absolutely beautiful.
Fragonard – Be sure to pay this boutique a visit. I love Fragnoard and I always make sure to stop by to buy souvenirs and presents for friends and family.
Le Saint Paul – The perfect restaurant to enjoy a romantic date night with your loved one.
Musée Renoir – Saint Paul de Vence is filled with so much beautiful art to discover as well as museums, Musée Renoir being one of them, a must visit when in town.
Le Petite Cave de Saint Paul – If you are a wine lover make sure to stop by Le Petite Cave de Saint Paul and buy some wine from local producers. They have a great selection.
Les Gourmandises – My favourite ice cream in Saint Paul de Vence can be found right here. I love their salted caramel flavour as well as their peach flavour.
Foundation Maeght – One of the most famous art galleries in Saint Paul de Vence. A must visit when in town.
The Folon Chapel – Discover the design work of Jean-Michel Folon by visiting this chapel. Folon’s close collaboration with village craftsmen, his stained glass designs, sculptures, and fascination with light, are all keys to understanding his world and his conception of art.
Grande Fontaine – This square has always been the busiest spot in the village. From dawn until dusk villagers would come to fetch water, donkeys and mules would drink, and washerwomen would scrub and beat their laundry in the washhouse. The square also hosted the weekly market in the 17th century.
