Where to go

by fabfay

My boyfriend and I are going to Vence but as usual we are worried that we gonna starve since we are both wheat free, dairy free and meat free dieters and we can hardly ever find a store that sells rye bread or soya or anthing that we can eat!!!!! is there any healthfood shop or restaurant we can go to in Vence? PLEASE ;-)

For what is, I think, more-or-less a vegan diet (?) it really is probably easiest if you self-cater, to be honest.

But you can usually order fish (not if you are vegan, obv) and/or vegetable dishes in cafes/bars/restaurants. It usually just means your choice of places and dishes is more limited.

There is a Monoprix on Avenue Henri Isnard in Vence, and that should stock at least some suitable foods.

Thank you very much, i was dreading going since i know french love their cream and bread! We are staying at friends so it would be self-catering and if we found a nice place to eat would be lovely but we are not counting our chickens yet.

Many thanks again

Sadly, the OP is asking about Vence in France, not Venice in Italy.

Travel Tips for Vence

Vence has an Old Town and a newer town

by Beausoleil

"Visit on Market Day if you can"

The market abutting Old Town Vence is great fun. They had fruits, vegetables, breads and even kittens and rescued animals. You could walk the market or sit and watch people playing petanque. Across the street are outdoor cafes and there are a few good restaurants right on the market square.

When the market ends, find Old Town and spend the rest of the day admiring the architecture, shops, church and spectacular views.

"Chagall in this tiny church?"

Yes, there is a wonderful Chagall mosaic in the church in Old Town. We attended Mass on one Sunday and it was Youth Sunday so we had a special program put on by the young people of the parish. It was all great fun. It's always fun to happen into a special event or festival.

The church is open for touring during the week.

"Can there be 2 farmers' markets in one town?"

Yes, there is one outside the Old Town area . . . and another in the Old Town square by the church.

Wander the ancient cobblestone streets admiring the buildings and then walk through the market looking for a picnic lunch. Take the picnic fixings and head out of town into the beautiful mountainous countryside and find a place by a stream to enjoy.

Ah . . . Provence.
