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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The weather was glorious throughout, and we more or less lived in the swimming pool. The pool went from a shallower end to about 7 feet deep, and a variety of inflatable rings, etc was available. The listing was accurate about the facilities etc available - there are three double bedrooms, and extra beds were provided for the two children. Sheets and towels are changed at the end of each week. There is a barbecue in the garden. The villa is located about 15km outside Nice, up in the hills, and the approach roads are uphill and twisty, with some hairpin bends. The approach to Chemin du Golfan is very narrow. There are no shops in walking distance, so you should stock up at the St Isidore LeClerc (on the road out of Nice) before you arrive. The nearest village is Colomars, about 10 minutes away by car, and this has a pharmacie, boulangerie, delicatessen and bar, as well as a very good restaurant, 'L'Escapade'. We also had an excellent meal at the hotel there. We made brief trips to Cannes, Eze and Monte Carlo, as well as into Nice itself, and to a nearby winery, Chateau Bellet, but we really never wantedto leave the villa at all! The property is well-maintained, and kept very clean, including the pool. We would unreservedly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet holiday, with the option of day-trips. The hosts keep a close eye on things, and Jean Marie cooked us a special pizza one night before we left.

The house is very well equipped. As we were travelling with 1,5 age child, we were very glad that the owner providef us all nevessary baby stuff (grib, feedig chair, baby bed, baby bath, even some toys and feeding plates and bib). This is definaty the most well equipped rental house we have stayed in! The owners are very lovely and very helpful! Our flight delyed 6hours and we landedat night. They came to pick us up from the airport at night and drowe us back in the morning for us to get the rental car! Super friendly! If we arrived we had a lot of complimentary food, fruits & drink in the house. Even for the baby we had multiple babyfood stuff! The location is perfect. Store (big!), is just a minute drive and reachable by foot also. Monaco & Nice are very close. We definately recommend to stay in this lovely house! We thank Sylvie and Fabrice and his dad!
