Why we choose Le Saint Paul

This 16-room hotel is the epitome of charm, with service that routinely over-delivers

  • Your room will be filled with an individual cake, flowers and fruit

Le Saint Paul is a must for people interested in medieval villages and art. Hint: You might not know you’re interested in these things until you arrive. Even the most jaded world traveler has to admit this frozen-in-time village has an irresistible magic.

What you need to know about the hotel

Unwind in a warm, romantic 16th century house with a restaurant that attracts diners from miles around

  • The restaurant sports a vaulted stone ceiling, trompe-l’oeil frescos and a bubblingfountain
  • Every suite is individually decorated with cashmeres, French fabrics and furnishings made by expert craftsmen

What’s most impressive about Le Saint Paul isn’t its spa (there isn’t one), nor the long list of restaurants (only one, but it’s fantastic). The big draw is the hotel itself. Built five centuries ago and located in a village that’s almost 1,000 years old, you’ll feel like you’ve awakened inside a history book. Even better: The comforts are most definitely 21st century. Le Saint Paul is decorated with objects from around the world, though the three rooms and 13 suites have a decided French flair.

The best suite has a terrace where you can take in views that have inspired generations of artists. Like the rest of the boutique hotel, its restaurant is intimate, and the weather dictates whether you dine beneath vaulted stone ceilings or on a flowered terrace. Oh yeah, you can practically feel the charm oozing out of this place.

Where is it and what's nearby

The centuries-old village of Saint Paul de Vence is nestled in France’s stunning Côte d’Azur

  • This 11th century village, among the most visited in France, is the birthplace of contemporary art
  • Streets surrounding the hotel are very narrow, so wear flats when navigating the picturesque lanes
  • Ask the concierge to arrange personal tours of the world-class galleries that dot this artists’ haven

Le Saint Paul stands in the center of the medieval town of Saint Paul de Vence, a village so charming it’s almost surreal. The town, with its perfectly symmetrical medieval architecture, is in France’s Provençal countryside, facing the Mediterranean and sheltered by the Southern Alps. You’ll immediately feel like you’ve stepped back in time—a rare opportunity, indeed. So enchanting is this French spot, and so fabulous its natural light, that it attracted painters like Matisse, Renoir and Chagall (who rests in the village cemetery). Not surprisingly, art galleries abound, as do cafes, boutiques and vineyards. And if bigger things are calling, Nice and Cannes are a short drive away.

Comfortable shoes for walking the thousand-year-old cobbled lanes of picturesque Saint Paul are a must.

How to enjoy South of France

Stretching between Monaco and Toulon, the French Riviera offers visitors uninterrupted sunshine and elegance. With glorious beaches fringed by fragrant pines and promenades begging to be strolled, this is the place to see and be seen; the international watering hole of the Beautiful People

  • Dine on fresh oysters, lobster, shrimp or the local dish Bouillabaisse overlooking the picturesque harbor at Villefranche-sur-Mer
  • See the limestone ridge of Mont Saint Victoire close to Aix-en-Provence that features in several of Cézanne paintings
  • Saunter Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, shaded by palms it is perfect for people watching and contemplating the blue waters of the Bay of Angels

Even if you are gazing at the dry ochre earth and terracotta roofs of France’s Midi for the first time, you’ll be forgiven for thinking it all looks quite familiar. It is. You will have no doubt seen many of the views before hanging in various museums around the world captured in the paints of Cézanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso and more. Like the artists we think you’ll fall in love the region’s wonderful light and colorful fields of sunflowers and lavender.

Devote some time to Cannes. Whether rubbing shoulders with the stars at the Film Festival or simply enjoying some down time, the city’s designer boutiques, marina and beach all possess a level of poise and grace seldom found elsewhere.
