St Paul is a medieval hilltop walled village located some 25 minutes from Nice airport, and easy driving distance from Antibes, Cannes, and St Tropez in one direction, and Eze, Monaco and Italy in the other, and close to the Alpine ski slopes. Since the 1870's the area has attracted leading painters – Cezanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Bracque, Picasso, Rouault, Rothko, César. In the 1950’s the leading lights of the French entertainment world followed – Simone Signoret, Yves Montand, Jean Paul Belmondo - as well as Hollywood stars - David Niven, Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum, Cary Grant - and more recently Roger Moore, Sean Connery and Rod Stewart. The Colombe d'Or restaurant is testimony to this legacy, with painters leaving their work in lieu of payment and stars their photos on the walls. This is reflected locally by the numerous art shops & galleries , and museums: Maeght foundation, Matisse (his Chapelle des Blancs in Vence is certainly worth a visit), Renoir, Picasso.
Other Activities: Art Galleries.
Ski: The ski slopes at Greolieres are ideal for skiers who are less confident or beginners. More taxing runs are within easy reach at Auron or Valberg, and further afield at Isola on the Italian Alps.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We are a British/French family with a mixed background: Michael is half french/half british, and Melissa is english. We moved to the south of France to give our daughters the mix of cultures which we believe to be all important in the modern world.
Why the Owner Chose St-paul-de-vence: Our professional background is the hospitality trade, and the Gatehouse has had the benefit of all our experience in its design: high quality furnishings, practical and well kitted out kitchen, and an insistence that everything should make the guest's stay as easy and relaxing as possible.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The property offers a large terrace with a covered eating area from which you get a perfect view onto the hilltop village of St Paul. It stands in a gated small secure Domaine, and offers privacy while allowing you to benefit from common areas such as the pool.
