This medieval village is lovely!! It is NOT half as touristy as most of the other hilltop villages in the south of France. It is old and beautifully kept and yes there stairs.....it is medieval. They did have have buggies or strollers back then. There are great artisans there that have stunning art pieces including pottery, wood work, painting, jewellery, to name a few. There are some souvenir shops that sell ciolettepeoducts etc nut I love that! We also has the chance to taste violence ice cream at Toms. Loved it! Daughter hated it! The alleys and small walkways are gorgeous! Really cannot say enough about it. Stunning views too. Hardly anyone else there but locals when we went And I was walking with a cane due to knee surgery. Hard work and painful but so worth it!!!!! I imagine with the crowds in Summer it may not be so fun.

The architecture and views are nice, but we made the mistake of entering the walled village with a baby stroller. Every other alley had steps, and others were blocked by road repair works.
The atmosphere was totally artificial, much like other exploited locations like Mont Saint Michel. There is no locals or genuine street life at all, just souvenir shops and galleries lined side by side.

Just as good as St Paul de Vence, but no crowds! Nice little market on Wednesday mornings, pastry shops & rests.

An absolutely charming medieval walled village close to Vence and St. Paul de Vence. A must see for lovers of Provence, as it is off the beaten track and away from tourist hoards. A great way to spend the day for those in the area of Antibes, Cannes or Grasse. Charming cobbled streets, little cafes, eateries, boutiques and patisserie line this delightful village, known for its cultivation of violets. A charming little marketing is held each Wednesday selling local produce and goods. breathtaking views of the Loup river outside the medieval walls.

The small medieval village situated on a rocky buttress ,overhanging precipices is quite calm and less populated with art and craft cultured people exhibiting their skills in small shops for purchase to the visitors. We had been to Nice during August 2013 and we intend to visit hilly villages nearby and the tour was arranged for 5hrs by car by French Riviera services at Nice for 60 Euros per person to tour Saint Paul de Vence, Tourrette Sur Loup, Gourdon and Grasse and return to Nice. We hand a nice trip covering the beautiful hilly ranges of French Riviera and the old villages of art, musicians, painters, writers and poets, A great lovely experience. The old architects and the narrow lanes and the houses sideby exhibits the art and poetic nature. The violet flowers all around are a grand show of colours.
