Saint Paul de Vence ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


I had the whole afternoon free and most of Nice covered and I refuse to spend my last day in southern France inside a Galleries Lafayette, so I hopped on the 400 bus and took the 1 hour ride west to Saint Paul de Vence. 

Perched on a narrow spur between two deep valleys, Saint Paul is one of the oldest and most beautiful medieval fortified village.

I wandered the maze of narrow, charming streets full of modern art galleries (and tourists!), cobblestone steps, pocket gardens, picturesque little squares, antique fountains, rustic doors and porches while taking in the wonderful views of Cote d'Azur, the hills and the Mediterranean sea.

The beauty of it all left me breathless.
