Pura Vida offers luxury accommodation for 6/7 in 3 double bedrooms - one set as a twin - all with en suite bath/shower rooms. From the spacious entrance hall, you enter the dining room (seating 8) which, in turn, leads you through to the beautiful light and airy sitting room with its real log fire. For your entertainment, you have a choice of satellite TV, DVD player, stereo unit and Wifi access. In the fully fitted kitchen, you will also find an American fridge-freezer with ice making facilities and water cooler. From the kitchen, you have direct access to the covered terraces, set out as summer living and dining areas with a gas barbecue. All rooms face South over the pool and beyond to the sea. There is also a utility room with washing machine and dryer. Secure parking for 2 vehicles is available in the gated outer courtyard.
To the West of the pool and sun terraces, across a lawned area, bordered by various shrubs and trees, a pizza oven awaits the more adventurous chefs!
The secluded location -not overlooked- of Pura Vida offers the perfect opportunity to laze in the sun or float on the infinity pool and watch the rare Bonelli's Eagles sailing on the thermals overhead. Leisurely meals can be taken under the covered terrace whilst the cicadas chirp away and later in the evening, the tree frogs seranade you (don't worry, they all go to sleep around 11.30!) whilst you gaze at the stars and the shimmering lights of the coastline.
If you have visited Tourrettes-sur-Loup before, then you have obviously fallen in love with it like we did! If it is your first visit then you will discover the charm of this pretty medieval village and enjoy browsing in the artisans workshops. Sipping a drink at the terrace of one of the cafes on the square is a favorite pastime of both locals and holiday makers, not forgetting, of course, taking part in a game of 'Boules'. Wednesday is market day and the opportunity to sample many delicacies like 'socca' and locally produced honey, olive oil and wine. The village shops, including a newsagent and a chemist, are perfect for your daily shopping whilst Vence, 4km away, offers a good choice of supermarkets.
It was just a piece of land back in 2001. We had a dream and we like a challenge.... Now we have Pura Vida and we would love to share it with you!
Amazing views even from the kitchen sink.... and from every room in the house as well, of course!!
Merci a tous les deux pour cette chaleuruse maison.
Nous pensons deja a qui nous allons la recommander!!!!
This was our second stay at Pura Vida, and once again, we were not disappointed!
The house itself is beautiful, clean and spacious, and the view is spectacular! The pool and garden are exceptional - the owners, Catherine and Don, do not miss any details.
And the location is fantastic . . .it is close to St. Paul de Vence, Nice and Antibes, and the charming village of Tourette sur Loup is just a few minutes away.
We so enjoyed our visit . . . we hope to return in the near future!
Wir eine 5-Köpfige Familie verbrachten zwei wunderbare Wochen in der Villa Pura Vida. Die Vermieter sind freundlich und hilfsbereit und obwohl Sie gleich nebenan wohnen, hatten wir unsere Privatsphäre.
Das Haus ist schön gross und sauber, alles hat funktioniert und war zweckmässig eingerichtet. Einzig das Internet ist nicht mehr Zeitgemäss, funktionierte nur zeitweise und dann sehr langsam. Aber bei so einem schönen Ort mit der Aussicht, stört dies überhaupt nicht. Wir haben dies gemeldet und die Vermieter kümmern sich um das Problem. Alles in allem wunderschöne Ferien, die man nur weiterempfehlen kann.
The owner Caatherine and Don are perfect hosts. They are so
Welcoming, nice and helpful.
The house is large, beautiful and very clean. The garden is quite and so lovely. The swimming pool , very clean and the view is awesome.We stayed for two weeks. Pura Vida was the perfect choice for us outstanding on every level. Hope to see you next summer. Lots of love from us Olin/Svensson in Sweden.
We stayed at Pura Vida for one week at the start of July and had an absolutely fantastic time! The villa and pool were beautiful and the owners, Catherine and Don, had been very thoughtful in their preparation of the villa for our arrival (flowers left on towels on the bed; soft toy on the bed in our daughter's bedroom). Also worthy of mention was how exceptionally clean the villa and its contents were.
Don and Catherine were lovely - so helpful - and we also enjoyed visits from their little dog Josh. Josh was very well behaved and only came to see us when invited.
The village of Tourrettes had everything we wanted and was delightful - far less commercialised than nearby St Paul de Vence.
We hope to return again!
Beautifully located, very spacious villa, with an excellent pool, and superb views out over Antibes and the coast. Within walking distance of the very attarctive and historic village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup, which also has some very good restaurants. Don and Catherine were also very helpful and accomodating hosts.
We have just come back from a week at Pura Vida, and definitely did not want to leave, and highly recommend a visit. Wish I had booked two weeks.
The Villa is absolutely beautiful, and the views are breath taking. Catherine and Don and great hosts, interesting and very helpful.
The location is also superb, the local villages and markets are lovely, but so close to all larger coastal towns if required. I did want to leave the villa too much, as it the most relaxing stay, location hopefully will return.
Enjoying panoramic views over the hills and valley to the sea, Villa Pura Vida is set in 3000m2 of semi wooded land just 1km from the picturesque village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup, also known as 'La Cite des Violettes'. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, ideal for hiking and cycling, yet conveniently located only 22km from Nice airport, this is a perfect spot to experience a variety of activities. Nearby Vence and St-Paul-de-Vence, where many artists found inspiration, can be explored at leisure after visiting their many art galleries and museums. A stroll on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice or the Croisette in Cannes is always entertaining whilst you will discover one of the prettiest beaches in the area if you spend a day at La Plage de la Garoupe on Cap d'Antibes, not far from the famous Eden Rock Restaurant. If you've always wanted to drive around the Monaco Grand Prix Circuit, or take coffee at the Cafe de Paris then why not indulge on your way to Italy for that special lunch!
