Very close to many superb restaurants ranging from Michelin 1 and 2 stars to typical French auberges and everything in between. Tourrettes (5km) has a small supermarket, butcher, baker, greengrocers, chemist, estate agents and an ATM, whilst Vence (12km) boasts several supermarkets and many other assorted shops and banks. Most are open Sunday morning. Italy is just an hour away, and there are weekly markets in many of the villages round about.
The area is of great natural beauty and is great for walking (not in July & August it's too hot), photography and painting (so many great artists came here because of the light), golf, visiting lovely mediaeval towns, bathing & sunbathing, and generally having a great holiday. Tourrettes sur Loup itself is a beautiful mediaeval "perched" village well known for the cultivation of violets for the perfume industry in Grasse, and as a meeting place for artists. There are many workshops for artists, potters, jewellers and weavers throughout the village.
