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.

Our 10 day stay in Casa Carlotta, in spite of the windy, rainy, cold weather , was wonderful! Even though there was a lot of construction going on in front, it made no difference. We enjoyed watching the day to day progress of the plaza being repaved with stone and the fixed awning installed over the restaurants. Two were just beneath our balcony. The view of the rade, St. Jean & Cap Ferrat and the lighthouse on the point was always fascinating to see. We could even see the Villa Rothchild just across from us! We watched cruise ships and their ferried passengers come and go. A patisserie was only steps away, so each morning I took my 2 euro coin and bought 2 croissants while Bill made coffee. A routine we grew to love! The Citadel with three museums, MANY restaurants and the Chapel decorated by Jean Cocteau were VERY close by. The Old Ville was such fun to explore - always a surprise restaurant around a corner. We had SO many choices - even Vietnamese! And we finally stumbled upon the Rue Obscura - but never figured out its purpose! An arduous climb to the tourist bureau and bus stops set us to panting, but we're in our late 70's so no surprise there! The buses, which cost 1.5 euro, ran into Nice and all the way to Menton on the Italian border in the other direction, making sight seeing easy and very affordable! Just a bus ride out and back could be a simple and cheap pleasure! And the apartment!!! We could not stop ourselves from staring out the two double doors to the balcony - even with the wind and rain! All of our expectations for a stay in Villefranche were met, and we plan to go back again. We cannot imagine staying in any other apartment!

Exotic house in a sensational location

5 of 5
Wonderful house at the very highest limit of the perched village of St Jeannet, right at the foot of the Baou de St Jeannet. Stunning views down to the coast from the house and its garden. If, like us, you don't drive and like rock climbing and walking, this place is perfect. You can walk to loads of climbing sectors within 20min and various walks start right from the front door. Road biking is also good. The area south of the village is a sprawl of towns, roads, villas, swimming pools, etc., but to the north is a much wilder area of tiny villages and rugged hills. Good public transport to the coast, Nice, etc. Hosts Marion and Remy were very friendly and helpful.
