Make a villa in Tourrettes-sur-Loup your home away from home

HomeAway's Tourrettes-sur-Loup villas base guests in a scenic artisans' village located high in the Cote d'Azur hinterland. Built on a craggy rock outcrop just 8.5 miles from the coast and on the cusp of the Alps, Tourrettes-sur-Loup made its name with its arts and crafts, as well as its medieval and Romanesque architecture. Over 40 artists and craftspeople ply their trade here, so Tourrettes-sur-Loup is a souvenir-seekers paradise.

Accommodation in Tourrettes-sur-Loup primarily consists of villas and apartments, with nearly all having access to a pool and BBQ area to make up for the short distance from the coast. With its location at the edge of the mountains, there are a host of activities to enjoy, such as golf, hiking, skiing and horse riding. Tourrettes-sur-Loup self caterings are typically equipped for self-catering holidays, with every modern convenience including washer/dryers and dishwashers, and a high proportion have internet access. Most holiday rentals in Tourrettes-sur-Loup have satellite TV and DVD players.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: The advantage of a accommodations in Tourrettes-sur-Loup is guests can take advantage of both the mountains and the coast. Both are only a short drive away, so it's not unfeasible to ski in the morning and lounge on the beach in the afternoon.

Beaches: The choice of beaches couldn't be better, with Cannes, Antibes and Juan-les-Pins – where HomeAway has a similar selection of holiday homes – all within easy reach. The beaches at Nice, unlike the above mentioned, are made of the shale common to the Cote d'Azur – bring flip-flops! For sand, Antibes and Juan-les-Pins are the best and coincidentally also the closest.

Nightlife: The nightlife in Tourrettes-sur-Loup tends to be subdued, relaxed, and local in flavour, despite the town's popularity with tourists. Prices also tend to be less expensive than nearer the coast. Of course, driving to the coast is perfectly doable for a night out, and scenic, seafront restaurants can be expected.

Shopping: Shopping for arts and crafts souvenirs couldn't be more opportune than in Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Sculptures, painting, pottery, weaving, jewellery, violet perfumes and confectionary, goat cheese and artisanal honey – the list goes on, and they are all created locally. Needless to say there's a wealth of shops and stalls to browse. Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, is only nine miles away, and of course there's always Cannes for particularly expensive luxuries.

Culture: Late February or early March sees the Festival of Violets, which marks the end of the flower harvest, always on a Sunday. The village bedecks itself in flowers and holds a parade, which culminates in a traditional flower battle (your guess is as good as ours!).

Weather in Tourrettes-sur-Loup

Tourrettes-sur-Loup's position nine miles inland means the tempering influence of the Mediterranean sea isn't felt quite as much, so temperatures at the extreme ends can occur. The highest temperatures in the summer can reach 33°C, while the short, mild winters will often see the single digits. Rain falls mainly in the autumn.

Travel to Tourrettes-sur-Loup

At 13 miles away, Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is the most convenient international airport, and is regularly serviced by buses. Flying isn't the only option to the south of France, however, as driving from the UK (especially the southeast) only takes a couple of days. Trains, too, are a viable option, with optimum connections allowing travel times of nine hours from London.

Perfection personified; 10-star perfect for both children and adults - in all ways

5 of 5
How can one describe the bestest of holidays? Riveloup - house, pool, gardens, games, AND the river within 20 metres or so with its "rapids", tree swing, deep enough water to jump in, and shallow enough to check out the fishes, tadpoles, baby frogs - was 'just the business'. House very comfortable, roomy. We were 16... 8 adults, 8 kids! Kitchen had all that could be required....with all necessary aids, ie dishwasher, washing machine etc. Not to mention the 3 fridges, to cool the quantitities of beer and wine required! Riveloup is surrounded by gorges, mountains, adventures - so it can be both a pool and river holiday (for those wanting to chill out) and also outdoor pursuits, challenging and otherwise for the adrenaline junkles! LIesel is a thoughtful and delightful woman who would (and did) help in any way. We wanted 2 evenings catered for, and Liesel pointed us in the direction of Bridie|Simply food; excellent, very delicious, both meat and vegetarian. One thing, and nothing to do with Liesel or Riveloup, if you're hiring a car from Nice Airport, arrange to have it waiting for you at Arrivals - do NOT go to the car rental terminal. It was teeming, resulting in a 2 hours queue... I am SO SO glad that I found Riveloup and Liesel online; it was a wonderful family catch-up/holiday..... I recommend Liesel and Riveloup UNRESERVEDLY - as I said up top there - The Bestest of Holidays.

Holiday Heaven

La Plantade villa was everything we hoped it would be for our holiday. We have visited Provence every year for the last 25 years and the villa's location to the village and surrounding area's was perfect and the best we've experienced. The views from every part of the villa were superb and it was one of our great pleasure to eat al fresco on the veranda over looking the surrounding area. The property was clean and well looked after and Andrea (owner) was very helpful with any issues we may have had. The cleaning and maintenance staff we also very pleasant and helpful. They looked after our cases for us when we left the villa for our last breakfast in the village. The village of Tourettes Sur Loup was the very best you could ask for and is our favourite place in Provence. All in all an amazing holiday and we will definitely be returning.
