In France, Near the Riviera

It's not Provence,
though it might make you think it is...
It's the medieval walled city called
St. Paul De Vence

a view from surrounding environs

typical street scene

the walkway around the perimeter of the little village
used by residents

a view over the walls to the Alps

another street scene

the shop keepers, restaurateurs, gallery owners
actually live here

having a breakfast at the small hotel in the village

another little home

shopkeepers getting ready for the day

this is a lovely day trip from Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Pins,
or other famous Riviera places.  Stay near the sea, visit St. Paul de Vence.

Happy Mosaic Monday

gorgeous. I love these little streets and villages. And to sit having breakfast with a view like that! - what a dream! I have only been to France once - it is so far from Australia - and loved every minute of it. So thankyou for taking me back there.
have a wonderful week.
