Where, even if it sunny and warm, a blanket of snow stands in front of the shiny Casinò.
You repeat to yourself that is winter, that the water must be very cold, that the breeze is still fresh. But that water, those shades of blue and gold. You really want to jump. Actually, somebody does.
Saint Paul de Vence
Inland from Cagnes-sur-mer a small medieval gem overlookes the soft hills until the sea.
Saint Paul de Vence, known as “the village of artists”, has been home for Chagall and Prévert, it has also been the scene of several movies and still hosts cinema stars. The generous Fondation Maeght maintaines a collection of masterpieces.
The pedestrian streets, beautifully preserved and clean, offer arts at every corner : watercolors, conceptual art, landscapes, photography, sculptures.
The little city is pervaded by a sensation of aesthetic satisfaction across ages and styles.
