Tuscan road trip #2

Still in France for the next highlight of this road trip – the unique and very special St Paul de Vence

St Paul de Vence is one of the finest medieval towns in Provence ( in my humble opinion) and I was so pleased to have time for an overnight stay inside the ancient town. Vehicle access is limited to those with accommodation within the town.

The narrow streets are full of quirky and endearing invitations to shop- credit cards may take a beating!

Typical Provençal gifts.

Every nook and cranny cries 'art', sometimes quirky, often traditional- the whole town is a living gallery.

This cat has just spotted a dog which has walked into the shop.

Stunning countryside, beautiful weather, exquisite French cuisine and interesting galleries.

This is the limited access road which winds around the outside of the city – thankfully it is one way. I did a lot of breathing in, and closed eyes on my way to the hotel parking.

If you are on the Mediterranean Coast in the much more famous destinations of Nice or Cannes try to find time to pay a visit to St Paul de Vence- you won't be disappointed.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne
