For my last Artful Destination, I shared La Fondation Maeght. But that was only half of one of my most memorable experiences in the little Provence village of Saint Paul de Vence. Not far is La Colombe d’Or, one of the rare destinations in the world where guests can dine while marveling at a number of original works of art from leading modern masters. Pulling up my chair beneath the violins of Arman, I spent the next two hours in a luxurious bliss as if sharing a glass of wine with the artist himself. La Colombe d’Or, still maintained by the Roux family who opened the terrace café in the 1920′s, also has an adjoined hotel. Imagine staying in the very room Picasso preferred! There are few villages in Provence that can offer such luxury!
