If what you seek is peaceful French countryside with a dash of art and history, Vence is the Time & Place destination for you. This quiet town inland from the French Riviera has long attracted artists and writers; Chagall, Matisse, and D.H. Lawrence have all called Vence home at one point or another, and you’ll be tempted to do the same as you slip into the calm way of life locals have enjoyed for centuries.

Surrounded by sloping hills with views of the Mediterranean, the town of St. Paul de Vence offers a serene retreat. The town center features charming restaurants and small shops, perfect for enjoying a cafe au lait or glass of wine and observing the natural beauty of the area. Take a tour of the cathedral that is host to a mosaic by Chagall or ask for a map so you can discover some of the fountains located throughout the town that spout fresh spring water. The Matisse Chapel or Chapelle du Rosaire des Dominicaines de Vence is a must-see as it is said to be Matisse’s favorite and what he considered his masterpiece.

Though Vence is small, it doesn’t lack any of the sophistication you’ve come to expect with Time & Place destinations. The alluring town is home to a Michelin-starred restaurant and many other restaurants and cafes that are sure to delight your palate with the tastes of exquisite French cuisine.

Vence has the makings for a vacation full of halcyon days and a true feeling of peaceful relaxation. Contact Time & Place today to start planning your next escape to St. Paul de Vence — you will love our charming luxury vacation homes there.
