At only 10 min by car from Vence, this authentic village shelters many treasures through its narrow streets, its ramparts and its old stones such as the Maeght Foundation or Simone Signoret's house.

Saint Paul de Vence is characterized by its artistic soul which hovers at every street corner but also by its Mediterranean style of life where the game of pétanque after a drink on the terrace is part of everyday life.

Did you know that ? (Culture is like jam, the less you have, the more you spread it!).

In 1905, Saint-Paul de Vence produced 140 tons of May roses, 200 tons in 1913. These flowers were sent to Grasse to be distilled. The terraced crops were irrigated thanks to countless basins built on top of the hillsides. Today, truffle oaks, aromatic plants and vines continue to decorate the terraced plots.
