Superb Spring Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary with our two sons with their wives and 2 grandchildren and stayed for 10 days. As it was February we were not sure what the weather would be but it was excellent with blue skies most days and a few with light cloud.

We loved the village of Tourrette and at least one of us walked up the steep rock path beside the house to get bread and croissants each morning. With ages ranging upwards from 3 years old to over 70, we were well able for this walk but it would not suit everyone.

The house itself is really lovely, spacious and well equipped. The central heating kept the house warm when the evenings were very chilly. The beds are comfortable and warm and there is everything you could wish for in the kitchen and much more, including what I would describe as an American style fridge and a large walk-in larder and good laundry facilities. The downstairs ensuite bedroom was a lovely hideaway for the oldies. There were lots of games and a huge collection of books.

The garden is large and the children enjoyed running around and loved playing around edge of the pool. Some days were very warm in the shelter of the garden and around the pool. The pool is much more for playing in than swimming as it is irregular in shape and has sloping sides. Perfect for family fun. There is a well equipped exercise room that was used to keep our marathon runners in training. There are many comfortable chairs and loungers outdoors and a swing and trampoline. I imaging the awnings would give great shade in the summer.

As some of us are keen on winter sports we took a trip to Gréolières-les-Neiges about 45 minutes drive away. It is a lovely family resort with places to eat, rent ski gear etc and slopes for tobogganing. An afternoon skiing there cost little more that at my local dry slope but was much more fun. It has a good range of slopes and some are challenging enough.

Coupling a ski trip with visits to Antibes, Nice and Grasse gave a lovely variety to our stay when added to a few lazy days just enjoying the lovely house and the local town which celebrated its history involving violets the weekend we were there. Vence is also a lovely nearby town to visit. The local towns were open for business and showed few signs of being off season. There are many signposted paths through the local forests which we walked and ran but this is a hilly area.

Beautiful villa with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at this spacious and comfortable villa. The owners have created a very lovely property which is very well equipped both inside and out. I particularly liked the high quality beds, bed linen and towels. The terrace and pool area are stunning and equipped with good furniture (no white plastic chairs). We really did find it difficult to drag ourselves away both during the day and in the evening when we enjoyed countless barbecues whilst taking in the views. We did make it to Clovis (michelin starred) in the village for dinner (lovely food and service in informal surroundings). There is a small gym by the pool which my son made good use of. The pool area itself is very private with comfortable loungers and the like the rest of the property very quiet.

Excellent holiday home on the Côte d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

Set in the hills of the Cote d'Azur about 30 min from Nice this is an wonderful holiday home for the family - salt water pool, a big garden for the children to run and play, a boules court, billiard table, ping pong, and outdoor grill from those evening meals. The house is well furnished, clean and very well looked after by the owners with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

The medieval hilltop town of Tourettes sur Loup is nearby and very charming - definitively worth a visit. The commercial town of Vence is a short 10 min drive away and has all provisions with supermarkets, fishmongers, butcher and vegetable stands, and bakeries for lovely fresh baguette and pastries.

After a week of swimming and relaxing by the pool, playing games, and eating lunches and dinners on the outside patio table, we were truly refreshed, and didn't want to leave.

We will definitely be coming back.

Quickly became our "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday in Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Once again we were fortunate to reserve a week at this wonderful home. The owners have made great strides in making the home very comfortable, with all the amenities we would expect in our own home.

The house is well laid out with spacious rooms, all with stunning views, very comfortable furniture and high quality bedding and linens. The modern kitchen and baths are well equipped with top of the line cabinets and fixtures. The housekeeping staff has to be complimented as the house was spotless.

All of the rooms have wonderful views of the countryside. Individually controlled air conditioning in the bedrooms made sleeping a joy.

The garden is delightful, complete with a saltwater pool, and fully equipped poolside exercise room, perfect for working off the meals you will be sure to enjoy during your stay. For children the garden is enormous with well secured play areas.

If you are like us you might follow our routine - morning coffee on the patio overlooking the rolling countryside down to the Mediterranean, followed by breakfast then lunch on the large patio dining table. Afternoon cocktails under the vine draped enclosure, followed by an evening meal cooked on the outdoor grill. This sequence allows you to explore the village and return to follow the sun as it travels across the landscape, well into the evening when the sky is alight with swallows, wishing you a good night sleep.

Tourrettes is a wonderful hilltop village. The residents are very friendly, and there are a number of outstanding restaurants to choose from. We particularly enjoyed La Grand, overlooking the village square and Petanque courts. There are a number of cafes and food stores lining the village square, all well stocked with local produce. Wednesday is market day in the village square. The olive and tapenade vendor was outstanding; we had no idea there were so many types of olives available.

A short drive down the hill takes you Vence, its old town complete with winding streets, outstanding restaurants and a wonderful choice of small shops.

The area is historically important having been home to many great impressionistic artists. St. Paul de Vence is only minutes away, with Nice, Antibes and Cannes nearby.

We will be back!

Lovely vacation in this beautiful villa and area!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay in this lovely villa in the end of September 2015.

The house is beautiful, spacious, clean and well kept in every way. We were two families with children and oh was it ever great for everyone to have fun and stay active with the pool, the ping pong table, badminton, boules and a trampoline in the yard. As easy was it also to relax on one of the many lounge chairs, while enjoying the gorgeous view sipping on local wine! There is also a couple of large green areas for free play or other games. As a bonus of a family with children the house also offered multiple children's games and puzzles.

Make sure not to miss out on the charming medieval town of Tourettes sur Loup just a few minutes drive away. We fell in love with this historical village where we enjoyed great restaurants and lovely afternoon strolls!

To sum this up, we were so pleased with out stay in this beautiful villa with breathtaking surroundings and the medieval town right at hand. Everything from the communication prior with the owner Penny to the greeting and service by Pierre and Francoise on site was amazing!

We would love to visit again!
