Tourrette-Levens on the Cote d'Azur, France

The pleasant small town of Tourrette-Levens is conveniently situated "just behind" (appx. 10kms North of) Nice, the international, lively & irresistible capital of the Cote d'Azur. A stone's throw from picturesque beaches, here, you are surrounded by unspoilt nature, rugged rocky peaks, winding rivers & gorges, scented pine forests and endless olive groves. Tourrette-Levens has the privilege to belong to the 13 perched villages that form the "lungs" of Nice. Three words would sum up best the "Route of perched villages": NATURE, CULTURE, and SPORT.

The visitor can stroll along cobbled winding streets, step back more than 300 years to admire the rich heritage of old houses built either of stone or in the original niçoise style with painted façades in various earthy colours, with freezes under the eaves, as if one was in an open-air museum. From any of the villages one can follow signed walks or longer hikes or mountain biking routes into forests, fields, valleys or up to the highest peak of Mont Chauve, at nearly 1,000 metres. Along the route admire old baroque churches, medieval castle ruins at Aspremont, an old abbey at Castagniers where they now make excellent hand-made chocolates. You can visit an old oil press which has been continually working since the 13th century and taste award winning local olive oil made of the famous "cailletier", so typical of the Nice region at Colomars. At Levens, there are horse riding centres, rock climbing and public tennis courts. Levens organises the biggest horse show of the region in July. Tourrette-Levens with its medieval castle and museums has become the cultural centre for the area. The old castle plays an important role in the summer "Musical Nights at the Chateau" Festival. During July & August, in the chateau gardens, surrounded by green hills and with view over Nice & Mediterranean, concerts (classical, jazz, pop), opera, magic show, theatre pieces are presented with guest artists and orchestras from all over the world, all entirely free, financed by the departmental council. There are two museums well-worth visiting, one in the "rampart house" about trades of the past, the other, the butterfly museum in the chateau with its collection of more than 4,500 butterflies and insects from all over the world.( Both free entrance). Tourrette-Levens also organises an international football camp in May/June. This year more than 200, 11 - 18yrs old boys arrived from more than 10 countries. During July the popular Medieval Festival is held when inhabitants of the village dress up in period costumes and participate in this lively event. There are two family run restaurants in the Old Town serving good provençale food.

You will find small family run cafes and restaurants in nearly all the perched villages, offering home-made provançale and niçoise cooking and friendly service.

It was well equipped, everything was as described, and as well as a lovley area outside where we could spend our free time at. When we arrived the owners were very friendly and helpful, and they even gave us information about the local area in regards to; transport, supermarket location and attractions which were in the city. When we arrived there was a lot of food, fruit and drink in the house. Thank you so much for that. The location itself was lovley, as there was a supermarket (well suprised with the number of grocery choices!) nearby, which was very convinient for us. A definately recommend this lovley property! Thank you so much Sylvie!

Abt. 15 mins walk to tram.Quiet area. You can sleep without traffic or party noise. The owners were very friendly and it was easy to rent this apartment. No problems. Highly recommend. Hyvä huoneisto, jos ei halua majoittua keskustassa. Joustavat vaihtopäivät. Vuokraaminen sujui asianmukaisesti ja omistaja oli vastassa tullessa ja lähtiessä. Damage deposit maksettiin heti alussa ja sen sai heti takaisin lähtiessä jos ei vahinkoja. Yläkerrassa pieni keittokomero ja pöytäryhmä, mutta pystyy kokata ateriat neljälle.. Samoin riittävästi aterimia ja tarvikkeita neljälle. Ylhäällä levitettävä sohva ja alakerrassa iso makkari, sänky kahdelle. Molemmilta parvekkeilta huikeat näkymät Nizzan yli merelle. Ratikkapysäkiltä 15min kävelyä josta puolet tiukkaa ylämäkeä. Ei sovi kaikille. 10min isoon markettiin. Suosittelen, jos ei tarvitse kukkua myöhään kaupungissa. Ratikka ei kulje myöhään yöllä.

Could have been better equipped with a few basic pieces of equipment such as chopping boards, teapot, extra rubbish bags and information with regard to using oven.
