Between the celebrated resorts of Nice and Antibes in southeastern France, you'll find the delightful medieval town of Vence. Known as a city of art, you'll find many working artists, sculptors and writers living here, various art galleries dotted around the town, including the famous Fondation Maeght on the outskirts, and has, in the past lured the likes of DH Lawrence who was buried here before later being taken to New Mexico. As you walk around the walled village with its ancient gateways, you'll come across many fountains. Famous for its spring water, from the river that passes along the northern edge of the old town, you should take the opportunity to refresh yourself at one of these. Behind the medieval walls you'll also find plenty of places to eat, especially at the Place Clemenceau, and just outside the walls, near the Porta de Pedra you'll find even more terrace cafes beneath the lovely plane trees. To experience Vence on market day, wander along the narrow rue de Marche, where you'll find everything from honey to flowers and vegetables on offer.
