Saint-Paul de Vence is a beautiful perched village, one of the most famous along the Riviera, and just a 25 minute drive from Nice, and known for its art galleries as well as being the final resting place of Marc Chagall.
In a leafy area above the village, accessible by short drive or a 20 minute uphill walk, the Fondation Maecht is modern art at its finest on the Mediterranean, and one of the most important collections in France, honoring 20th century paintings, sculpture, ceramics, stained glass and more from artists such as Jean Arp, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Sam Francis, Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder, Wassily Kandinsky, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Léger and Joan Miró.
Founded by an art dealer Aimé Maeght in 1964 who supported and befriended many of the masters, the foundation is entirely independently funded.
There is also a gift shop and “Café F” onsite for lunch or a snack.
€15 entrance fee. Children under 10 are free.
