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!

Donkey made from horse shoes

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.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
