Saint-Paul-de-Vence was discovered in 1920 by Signac, Modigliani, Bonnard and Soutine, and is one of the prettiest villages in France. The community’s 16th and 17th century houses and city walls remain intact, and Saint-Paul-de-Vence was once a haven for contemporary artists such as Marc Chagall, who rests in the village’s cemetery, as well as Matisse, Picasso and, more recently, César.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the Riviera, Saint-Paul-de-Vence is a special stop along the route to discovering the authentic charms of the Provençal countryside.
