About the property

Villa in Tourrettes sur Loup, Alpes Maritimes, Cote D'Azur, France - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk To Village, 25 Minutes' Drive To Beaches And Nice Airport

"Villa Bantayan" was constructed in 1994. It sits in its own 1.5 acre plot with a private pool, large terrace, gardens and woodland. It is a 10 minute walk from Tourrettes Sur Loup, one of the most beautiful medieval villages in the Cote D'Azur, known for its lively market, restaurants and artists' ateliers which line its pedestrian-only streets. It faces due south to the beaches, a 25 minutes' drive.

About peter foster

I am a UK national who has lived overseas for 30 years, mostly in Asia but also in France during the late 1990s when I purchased this property. I am the senior executive in an award-winning full-service airline and therefore am very conscious of the need to provide a quality holiday product and good value for money. I bought the property not for business reasons but because I and my family fell in love with this very beautiful corner of the Cote D'Azur.

Why peter foster chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup

The "Arriere Pays" (literally, back country) of the Cote D'Azur offers all the benefits of this immensely popular region without the crowds of the coastline itself. Tourrettes Sur Loup is a lovely medieval hilltop village, a lively place but neither as busy nor touristy as nearby St Paul De Vence. For those wishing to enjoy the coast the beaches are close enough for an easy excursion, and for those seeking a taste of the glamour of the region, Cannes, Nice, Cap D'Antibes, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Monaco are all within easy driving distance.

What makes this villa unique

The property is both quiet and child-friendly. It is a hideaway for those seeking peace and quiet but also a perfect place for a family holiday. If one heads further back into the "Arriere Pays", a host of pursuits from hill-walking to horse riding are all available.
