"The second most visited village in France after Mont-St-Michel, St-Paul has an almost unnatural brilliance. Approached from the valley below, it surges from the rocks like a citadel in a Sixties Ladybird book about knights and Saracen invaders. So many of its original features have been preserved: the 16th-century ramparts, the arcades, the wells (until 15 years ago all the fountains were fed by a local stream). After a ferocious marketing drive which began in the 1980s, now upwards of two million visitors a year force themselves along these thread-like streets in a purling stream from May to October: grannies from Luxembourg buying posters of Giacometti, Portuguese teenagers plugged into portable tours, seas of straw hats and protesting Canadians and Belgian fathers pushing triple strollers, comparing notes on their drive up from Antibes. It wasn't always this way (long-time residents tear their hair out) but the town was always well off, always loved, known for its famous visitors and residents. Here, the fountain where Churchill liked to sit and paint; there, the grave of Chagall, covered in rosemary and surrounded by ancient cypresses. But it is true, there is no boulangerie any more. The shops are given over almost entirely to ice cream and expensive watercolours, and the cobbles are not ancient at all but relatively recently laid. Still, in the early mornings, a market just beyond the medieval walls sells leeks and parsley, melons and sunflowers, and on some days pétanque is played seriously outside Twenties café-hotel La Colombe d'Or, where Hitchcock came to finish writing To Catch a Thief and where the walls are hung with paintings by Matisse and Braque, personal gifts from the artists. Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, James Baldwin: they all stayed here, sometimes for months at a time. By 1pm the garden terrace of this deeply glamorous hotel is crammed with ageing boulevardiers who've skipped food altogether and are smoking; slim-armed wives humour their ruthlessly bad-tempered elderly husbands with another iced bucket of fizz as prawns are brought out on great silver platters. I sit and binge on dorade with Pitou, granddaughter of Monsieur Roux, who built this place against all advice in a field he had inherited just after World War I using materials he bought from house sales in villages decimated by the fighting. 'Montand…' shrugs Pitou, dreamily, as I mine her for information, 'he was Montand. He met Simone here. Jacques Prévert was here for so long, so many months, so many times. My grandmother would make him food in the bar.' As the afternoon thickens, the garden around us seems lined with an increasingly pretty and burning universe of trees and flowers. Inside, in a dark corner, I find a photograph of Pitou taken some time in the unrecoverable 1960s, wearing flares and a smile, blonde hair skimming her thighs, arm around some old guy chomping on a cigar. I think it's Miró. Further along in the picture is Montand, squinting and raising a glass in the sun. Later I ask Pitou about Picasso. Is it true he gave a painting in exchange for a bowl of soup? Pitou roars with laughter. No, it's not true, despite what the guidebooks say. So how did they get the painting that hangs inside? The fading light in the garden pools around Pitou's feet. She shrugs. 'In 1953 my grandfather said to my grandmother, ""Go down and ask Pablo.""' And she did. go see fondation maeght in St paul de Vence - a beautiful house full of art --> Some of the biggest names in 20th-century European sculpture, including Georges Braque, Joan Miró and Alberto Giacometti, came together to help create La Fondation Maeght, which has become France’s most important art foundation and is among the world’s leading cultural institutions. Where to eat ? for an expensive but delicious and traditional lunch bool la colombe d'or, otherwise for a more casual lunch go to la fontaine or le caruso"
