Saint Paul de Vence, France . August 20, 2015
As we drove through the countryside and up the narrow, winding roads, a quaint little village atop a hill welcomed us with open arms. Only twenty minutes North of Nice, Saint-Paul-de-Vence is an old medieval town, home of narrow, cobblestone streets, an array of artisan shoppes, and breathtaking views everywhere you turn. It’s no wonder Saint-Paul-de-Vence is frequented by many artists! There are many art galleries, museums, and structures created by both new and old artists. My favorite gallery was our very own hotel – La Colombe d’Or! More on that tomorrow. It deserves it’s own post!
Since most of our day was spent poolside, we didn’t have much time exploring before the shoppes closed. We did, however, check out the restaurant scene. We found a great spot with an even better view. Our delicious dinner of pizza, salad, and rose was followed by a summer festival with lively music and dancing. It looked very inviting so we headed down the cobblestones to a crowd full of locals and tourists singing and dancing the night away. We couldn’t help but get on the dance floor and join in on the fun!
Until next time! xo, Lauren
