In Wonderment -Saint-Paul-de-Vence

MapWhat I know for sure is exploring new lands sets your soul on fire!


Saint-Paul is also well known for the artists who have lived there, such as Marc Chagall and more recently the couple Bernard-Henri Lévy and Arielle Dombasle. Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has a home there.

One of the oldest medieval towns on the French Riviera, it is well known for its modern and contemporary art museums and galleries.

In the Middle Ages, the Counts of Provence administered the region and granted several privileges to Saint-Paul. In the 14th century, the village became the county town of a big district. In 1388, the eastern border of Provence was redefined : Saint-Paul occupied a strategic position and became an important border stronghold…

In the 19th century, the hills were covered with flowers, vines and olive trees. As the 20th century dawned, the village’s brown stone, the coulours of the countryside.

Looking out from the village edge; lavish landscape hills & homes.

If you know me I prefer to be behind the lens, however the beauty of this walkway I could not help but want a photo in that exact moment. The blue sky peeking through, the stone that was all placed by hand, and the arbor above is all branches & vines growing. Amazement every time I look at this setting.
The charm is everywhere and the details…Wow, I will treasure the memories seeing in person forever.
