About the property

3 Bed 3 Bath Stone-built Villa with Pool in Secluded Gardens With Stunning Views Over The Gorge Du Loup And The Mountains

This wonderful stone house was built in 2002 on the site of and in the style of the original bergerie or shepherds hut. It is simply and tastefully decorated throughout with character and style. The mature terraced garden with olive and fruit trees is secluded and provides total peace and tranquillity. The interior of the house is beautifully yet simple decorated with whitewashed walls, exposed beams and stonework, terracotta floor tiles and oak furniture throughout. Tiled luxury bath and shower rooms with rain showers. The fully equipped Provencal style kitchen opens out onto a dining terrace with a gas barbecue. The french doors from the cathedral ceiling living room open onto a shady dining terrace covered by a pergola. From the terrace steps drop down past lawns to the pool area.

About Susan Alloun

I'm originally from London but lived in Switzerland for the last 14 years and have just returned to live in London again. I was in the fashion business and my husband was an architect. We loved our holiday home and have tried to make it a comfortable and relaxing haven.

Susan Alloun purchased this villa in 2003

Why Susan Alloun chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup

We chose this house because of the view, the surroundings, and the peaceful situation. it is near to all local amenities yet is not overlooked and is secluded enough for a truly relaxing vacation.

What makes this villa unique

There are a range of sitting areas from full sun to cool shade and because of the thick stone walls the house is delightfully cool on the hottest summer day.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a marvellous stay in this charming villa. The views are delightful and the area around the villa gave us lots to see and do. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a peaceful stay in a characterful house with all mod cons.

Car: necessary


The nearest beach is Cagnes sur Mer (25 minute drive), which is a lively family friendly resort with varied beach facilities and very many restaurants. A little further afield (45 minute drive), are the larger resort towns of Nice, Cannes and Antibes. About one hour away are the sandy beaches of Mandelieu, La Napoule and Theoule sur Mer.


Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is the closest airport to the villa, about a 35 minute drive away. A car is essential, even though there is a bus that runs from Vence to Grasse. It stops a 5 minute walk from the villa.


The medieval village of Tourrettes sur Loup is 6 kilometres (10 minute drive) away. There are many restaurants, cafes, bakershops (for the breakfast baguette) and a weekly market. The larger town of Vence with even more restaurants cafes and excellent shopping is only a 20 minute drive. There are too many beauty spots and charming villages to list such as St Paul de Vence, Bar sur Loup and Opio, all within easy driving distance.

Further Details:

There are very good butchers, bakers and vegetable shops in Tourrettes sur Loup. There is also a cash dispenser, pharmacy, hair dresser and Tourist Office, as well as many art galleries restaurants, cafes and artisanal shops. There is now a good convenience store open 7/7 in the village.The nearest large supermarket is in Vence, where there is also a market twice a week.
