Saint-Paul-de-Vence weekend getaway
View from our hotel room
If you are like me and like to have things planned in good time and love to have something to look forward to then the time has come for you start think about your summer vacation or perhaps you are just need a weekend to get away from your everyday life. We all know that the price is lower when you book your flight and hotel in time so don’t wait.
Last summer me and Frederik decided we wanted to visit South of France. We do that every year since Frederik has lived there and he loves it. But Frederik is not a planner he is very spontaneous and if he decides he wants to go somewhere he can be at the airport in 30 minutes and pay 5 times more for the ticket or the hotel. As you probably understand this does NOT work for me. I don’t want to pay 5 times more just because he can’t plan something in advance. And also want and need to know so that I have the time to wax my legs, clean my house, pack my outfits, wash my hair… you know everything that us girls need to do before a vacation.
Anyway, after checking the flights (last minute) we decided we could take our car and drive to South of France, since we were not in a hurry and did not know when we needed to return back home this sounded like a good plan. Although this probably cost us more we had such a good time and got to see so many beautiful places one of them was Saint-Paul-de-Vence.
Saint- Paul-de-Vence is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. This little village has it all; small shops, restaurants, galleries, beautiful nature and amazing views from every angle.
How I would like my lunch to look like every day

Even the lemons were sweaty
And me; very happy to be here
I highly recommend you to visit Saint-Paul-de-Vence. You wont get disappointed I can promise you that. Everyone we recommend this place to has been totally in love with it. If you go here I would not recommend you to stay longer then 4 days in summertime. It gets very hot, the village is very small and its very quiet. So for relaxation my opinion is that 3-4 days is enough.
I was thinking to write about the world famous restaurant La Colombe d`Or in this post as well, but I think I will save it for my next post since that place deserves to have attention on its own. I have so many pictures from the restaurants I would like to show you so stay tuned.
If you have any questions or you would like to know something else please let us know.
