AUTHENTIC PROVENÇAL VILLA WITH POOL, GARDEN & STUNNING SEA VIEWS (ref: KAR80)

Overview

Property

Updated: 10-Dec-2016
5 MINS' WALK TO VILLAGE. Perfect for families sharing, or a group. Sleeps 6-8

Perched up in the hills and just 5 minutes’ walk from medieval Tourrettes sur Loup, this south-facing villa is perfect for families. Six to eight people can be comfortably accommodated (3 double bedrooms plus additional curtained sleeping area, 3 bathrooms including 1 ensuite), and the elevated position give panoramic views from the pool and roof terrace, up the hills and down to Antibes and the coast.

This traditionally styled house is welcoming and homely – relaxing, spacious and private. The rooms are a typically old Provençal style with period stone flooring, medieval wooden doors & beams and have spectacular views over the Cote D’Azur. The house is built on two floors – each of which has a comfortable living room (one with an impressive stone fireplace) and a well-equipped kitchen, making it perfect for sharing.

Outside, the beautiful garden has a wealth of mature trees and Mediterranean shrubs, plus a boules court and private pool. Wisteria-covered terraces provide shade for long, lazy lunches and dinners, and of course soaking up those amazing views. Private and peaceful, this is a great spot from which to enjoy both the calm of Tourrettes and surrounding Vence, Grasse and Cote D’Azur beaches.

This villa is managed by Pure Azur, a specialist property business focusing on Tourrettes sur Loup, Vence & St Paul de Vence.

A wonderful house in an even better location

  • 5 of 5

This charming house is in a great location for the village, which we know and love, enabling us to pop down for shopping and evening meals without having to use the car. The views from the house are superb and the pool and gardens are wonderful.

One gripe would be that the beds and pillows need to be renewed.

Antoine and Sophie were both extremely helpful, responding to any queries immediately.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa just a stone's throw from the village. Every morning we would saunter down to the boulangerie for croissants and almond tarts as the perfect start to the day. The villa has wonderful old-world charm, with original wooden doors and stone walls, mixed with a beautiful modern private pool. This was our second stay in this particular villa having discovered it in 2009, and imagine our delight when we found it available again this year through Pure Azur. It's close to the amenities of the village, but also a quick bus ride to Vence takes you to the bigger shops (should the need arise!) The Pure Azur team were wonderful - sorting out a pre-stocked fridge, booking taxis to the airport, and dealing with any questions we gave them. Totally lovely and I am already planning my visit next year.

Characterful property in wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Property lived up to expectations--excellent location within walking distance of Tourrettes, spacious accommodation and well appointed.Beautiful gardens and stunning views from main and roof terraces.

Property was very clean but bathrooms and kitchen area could do with some updating. Bedrooms would benefit from bug screens on windows to allow ventilation at night.This is essential in smallest bedroom adjacent to kitchen.House in general would benefit from a little TLC.

Two parasols inadequate for number of loungers at poolside .

Manager provided excellent service. Antoine's immediate response to any queries we raised was much appreciated.

He gave plenty of recommendations regarding amenities in village and surrounding area.The boulangerie was very good and meals at Clovis lived up to Michelin star rating. We also enjoyed the other bars and cafes in the village and the weekly market. We were lucky enough to experience the Fete de la Musique on 21st.June.

We wouild not hesitate to recommend this property. We had a marvellous time.

Deirdre and Brian [ on behalf of the family group]

Lovely house, close to Tourrrettes-sur-Loup

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house, the layout with two separate floors works very well and it is very well equipped. There is a lovely terrace to eat out in the shade with a great view over Tourrettes to the sea. The pool was very clean and refreshing, a delight. The location just above Tourrettes is very handy for shopping and restaurants and saved us having to use the car. And finally, the PureAzur team are very helpful indeed.

Unique Charm, Fantastic Views, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The grounds and landscaping were fantastic. Multiple patios and terraces to enjoy at different times of the day for different activities. The views to the coast were calming in the morning, mesmerizing during the day and exciting with the lights of the night. The house had charm and character that was very unique - loved the two floor layout. Antoine and Anissa from PureAzur were perfect - there when we needed or had questions, them but not obtrusive. The location is ideal and a five minute stroll gets your right into the middle of village with everything you need. Would definitely come back . It was a perfect spot for us, very relaxing and exactly what we were hoping for.

Not value for money

  • 3 of 5

We were greeted with a musty odour as we entered and remained for the duration. Although there is a rustic charm some of the furnishings could do with updating in the main living room upstairs.

We had to move to a different bedroom after the first night as the bed had a sagging hole. The other beds were firm but comfortable but all the pillows could be better.

Kitchen appliances and utensils left a lot to be desired and showering in one of the bathrooms proved a bit of a challenge which we did work out.

The pool was somewhat cloudy unlike the picture but the local agent was very responsive to our request to have it seen to.

This would be much better value if the furniture, upstairs kitchen and bathrooms were upgraded.

The location was very convenient but the property could do with some additional maintenance.

Overall it was a bit pricey for what was on offer.

Part of the ‘Arrière Pays’, Tourrettes sur Loup offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the Mediterranean coast. Located 10 minutes’ drive from its more famous neighbour St Paul de Vence, 20 minutes from the coast and 30 minutes from Nice & Nice airport, Tourrettes has something for everyone, from keen walkers to culture vultures and foodies. The sweeping views over the mountains and down to the sea are intoxicating and seem to go on forever – this is a part of southern France that is for those ‘in the know’ looking for a more relaxed pace of life.

Perched on a rocky outcrop, Tourrettes sur Loup is straight out of a fairy tale: fortified walls, windy cobbled streets, arched medieval passageways, and a little stream that greets you as you stroll in past the old mill. But this tiny Provençal village is far from sleepy, boasting wine bars, excellent restaurants (including one awarded a Michelin star) artisan bakeries, grocery shops, butchers, art galleries & jewellery shops, and a market on Wednesday mornings.

The village has become a centre of art and there are many galleries to linger in and workshops to explore. Also known as the 'Cite des Violettes' due to its historical association with the nearby perfume industry in Grasse, you can still visit violet fields and buy produce in the village made with locally grown flowers.

There is always a good time to visit Tourrettes.

During the peak summer season the weather hots up, but being elevated from the coast means that it’s easier to escape the intensity of summer heat. There is a plethora of events, ranging from world-famous jazz concerts (Juan Les Pins, Nice, Antibes), International firework competitions (Cannes and along the coast), and of course locally the Fete de la Musique (June 21st) when the whole village comes to life with concerts and al fresco dining.

In winter, the weather can still be very mild. The local ski resort of Geôlières is a 45 minute drive and offers family skiing with spectacular views and mountain scenery. For a bigger ski domain, Valberg, Isola 200 and Auron are great for day trips. Other events not to be missed are the world-famous Nice carnival (February), Menton Lemon Festival (February) and Tourrettes’ very own Fete des Violettes (February): a unique event with music, locally decorated floats parading through the village and the infamous ‘bataille des fleurs’.

Spring & Autumn offer temperate, pleasant weather and a welcome escape from the grey skies of Northern Europe and cooler climes. And of course being out of season, there are fewer people and air fares can be cheaper.

The surrounding area offers much to explore. 45 minutes’ drive will take you to Cannes, Antibes, Nice or Juan les Pins. A little further along the coast is Monaco, Monte Carlo and the Italian border or head west and enjoy a day out in St. Tropez. There are five golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Active outdoor pursuits nearby in the Gorge du Loup and surrounding mountains include parascending, hang gliding, canyoning and horse riding. There are some excellent and varied walks nearby for all levels of walkers or hikers, many in mountainous terrain with breath-taking views.
