La Colombe D’Or in St. Paul de Vence – The Legend Goes On

Posted August 21, 2014 by Celina Lafuente de Lavotha

A visit to La Colombe D’Or restaurant in the fortified village of Saint Paul de Vence in the South of France feels more like visiting an art exhibition. Paul Roux and his family have been at the helm of this legendary restaurant and hotel for almost a century. They have been amassing an incredible collection of 20th century art when they started to accept works of art as payment for their meals from artists like Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Calder, Leger, Chagall and many more. In spite of its rich history, its simple menu, good service and relaxed atmosphere is exactly what you expect from an establishment run by a family.
