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.

Amazing stay in a beautiful apartment

5 of 5
This is the way to see the Cote D'azur. The apartment is in a gorgeous art deco style building, right on the seafront. You take the elegant retro elevator up to the second floor and, on entering, are greeted with the most amazing view. Wrap around windows bathe the apartment in light and frame a picture postcard view of the Nice coastline. It was a delight to wake each morning to such breathtaking views and eat a leisurely breakfast before hitting the beach. The place is beautifully decorated and amazingly well equipped. Margret and Conor have clearly put a lot of love and attention into kitting it out. There are always things you'd love to have on holiday but just can't bring, every time we thought of one the apartment had it, including everything you could ever possibly need for a day on the beach. We love to cook and the markets in Nice have the best produce in the world, (I think I ate my bodyweight in good cheese and saucisson). For a cook the apartment is incredibly well equipped, tbh I was more than a little jealous as my own kitchen is not nearly so fully set. We wiled away more than one evening on the balcony with a bottle of wine, watching the sun set and the world going by. Brooke & Raluca could not have been more helpful, greeting us at the flat on arrival and explaining thoroughly how everything worked and where everything was. Amazingly Luca picked us out of the market crowd one day and offered excellent advice of stalls to visit and choice delicacies to try. The location was perfect for us, kid friendly (out 8 year old just loved the beach!), not far from the center of town and with an excellent boulangerie and Carrefour supermarket just around the corner. Beautiful apartment, fabulous location, its a place to build memories! All around a wonderful experience, can't recommend it highly enough!

Perfect place to unwind

5 of 5
My family had another lovely stay at Scoubidou (our third time there). This was our first late-season visit, but even in October the weather was gorgeous and the outdoor pool was still lovely and warm – a very welcome antidote to grey, rainy London. We didn't go on many day-trips this time out – there's a largeish supermarket just a few minutes' drive away in town, so we mostly just loaded up on provisions and lounged around the villa. But we're happy to report that Beaulieu-sur-Mer has lost none of its charm. We ventured out to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat for lunch one day (about a 20-minute drive away) and got some superb photos of the beautiful views along the coastline. We'll definitely be back next time we need to get away from city life and decompress!
