A French Riviera Retreat

Nestled in the hills above France's iconic Cote d'Azur, St. Paul de Vence is an ideal home base from which to explore the French Riviera. While art aficionados bask in the town's creative atmosphere, foodies and sun-seekers will love its proximity to star-studded beaches - we recommend Saint-Tropez, Monte Carlo, and Cannes - world-class wineries and Michelin-starred restaurants, all just a short drive away. Known as an illustrious hideaway and source of inspiration for the likes of Picasso, Chagall and Matisse, today St. Paul de Vence enjoys a thriving gallery scene - and its pedestrian-only cobblestone streets make it an ideal place to wander.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • Authentic Wine Tours and Experiences

    Up in the hills of St. Paul de Vence and in the region's quaint, medieval neighborhoods, one can find a number of delightful wineries. Unlike their larger counterparts throughout Provence and the coast, these smaller wineries focus more on producing for the region and put out fantastic yields.

    Le Petit Vigneau. This tiny little winery packs quite the punch. Located on only one-and-a-half acres, Le Petit Vigneau makes reds, whites and rosés and is a beloved wine producer in the region. Guests can tour the vineyard and enjoy an informational tasting.

    Domaine Saint Joseph. Maker of biodynamic wines (a specific agricultural method), guests can learn about biodynamics and the idea of treating the vineyard as an ecosystem and later can enjoy a tasting of the vineyard's reds, whites and rosés.

    Cave Wine Note. A visit to this chic wine cellar is a must. Cave Wine Note has an extensive wine list that includes Bordeaux and an extensive variety of local favorites. They also have lengthy whiskey and beer lists and host local music events.
