Saint-Paul de Vence: The Jewel of the French Riviera
Air of Mystique
In its heyday, countless artists fell under Saint-Paul de Vence’s spell. The golden era maybe long gone but its status as a source of artistic inspiration lives on, and an air of old-school mystique still hangs over the village.
Galleries & Museums
Artists were drawn to Saint-Paul de Vence in their droves so, somewhat unsurprisingly, the village also enjoys a reputation as a happy hunting ground for art-lovers. Despite its small size, a myriad of fine art galleries and ateliers are scattered throughout its winding streets.
While the stunning light and colour of Saint-Paul de Vence’s landscapes continue to attract artists, the village has also long had ties to celebrities – Ernest Hemingway and Zelda and F Scott Fitzgerald are just a few of the names who appear on its roll call of stars. In particular, cinema greats have visited over the years, with Kirk Douglas, Orson Welles, Michael Caine and Gene Wilder among the famous faces.
