After Antibes, taking the scenic route and more art.

Time to leave and head west but not without a few more stops. Diane and I both wanted to go and see the Matisse Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence which was not too far off our route.The link in the name will enable you to read about why and how it was constructed. Set on the hillside with simple gardens and a view of walled Vence on the other side, it was worth the diversion.

Vence itself was a joy indeed, apart from the underground car park. Extremely steep with narrow spaces, and not for the timid driver! We explored tiny streets, dreamy squares looked in art shops and galleries and enjoyed a light lunch in one of the squares.
