Saint Paul de Vence

Hi Everybody,

There are some places that we never tire of visiting. For us Saint Paul de Vence is one of them.

Alas it is so popular that it is often teeming with visitors, but at the right time of day the lovely little streets and the town can be enjoyed to it’s full.

The views of the town as you approach it are lovely too and and each time I visit there seems a new aspect to paint a watercolour of.

This visit was no exception so I thought I would look back through previous paintings and gather them together in the blog post dedicated to the town.

Recently a new creperie has opened near to the Church in the town and I can really recommend it. The best crepes that I have ever eaten, prepared in the Normandy way. If you are there, try one, they are delicious!

St Paul is also full of art galleries and shops with items to tempt the tourist as you would expect but somehow they  add something to the town and  a extra dimension to the lovely architecture and the narrow streets.

Nearby  too is the bigger town of Vence , which has a very nice old town to discover too.

There are so many lovely places in this beautiful, and our favourite, part of France.

I hope you will enjoy these paintings of the town and if you haven’t visited  St Paul then do so one day. Crowds or not you will enjoy it.

Happy travelling

Brian
