Thursday Doors – Saint Paul de Vence

SPdV is a beautiful hilltop village in the foothills north of the French Riviera. It’s not just my opinion – lots of actors, writers, painters and celebrities have lived here. And died here – James Baldwin (American writer) and Donald Pleasance (British actor). If you visit, try to avoid the throng of tourists who arrive in luxury coaches in late morning and phagocytose the fashionable restaurants for lunch.

The streets are narrow and lined with art galleries and gift shops. But forget these, and concentrate on the doors. This is statuette is above the main gate to the village.P1300601
