St. Paul de Vence Travel Diary | French Riviera

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

One of the best things about the French Riviera is its close proximity to the Provencale countryside.  Where sea breezes brush inland and wafts through the entire coast enveloping the region with the utmost air of luxury and refinement.  The medieval village of St. Paul de Vence sits high upon the hilltop in the Provence-Alps-Maritime region, a quick 40 minute drive north of the Riviera. 

St. Paul De Vence

Dating back to the early 1400’s, St. Paul de Vence was erected as a military border stronghold against enemy lines. Once inside the bastioned outer walls you will find a charming village square, beautifully preserved monuments, an incredible 360 degree view of the countryside, and THE.MOST.MAGICAL light filled fortress I have ever spied in my life.

Artist's Enclave

No wonder it’s France’s most visited town EVER and home to dozens of famous artists past and present.  

Just breathtaking y’all… you gotta see it to believe it.

Town Center

Exploring all the wonderful nooks and crannies is part of the adventure…

Stepping out in Riviera style printed palazzo pants and my fave wide brim Zara hat…

I think I’ve found the fountain of youth in St. Paul de Vence guys…

Every corner something worth shooting…

Closing thoughts

The magic of these treasured travel moments simply makes you want to live a better life, be a better person, and build a stronger foundation for all your dreams to come true. Which is precisely why I chose France as our honeymoon destination.  One day we’ll come back and may just never leave <3
