About Hazel Askey

After years of staying in expensive but substandard villas in Europe we decided we would furnish La Perception with good quality sheets and good quality towels and beach towels. A kitchen that is a fully working kitchen with most modern day appliances and enough crockery, cutlery and glasses.

Why Hazel Askey chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup

Our breath was taken away when we saw the views from the south facing terrace and all the windows. We then went inside and really fell in love with the property. Sun pouring in through every window, so light and airy! With daily direct flights from the UK to Nice and a 20 minute drive to the property what could be easier. Perfect !

What makes this villa unique

This is an ideal property for family and friends with space for everyone. Gatherings and family get togethers work well in this house in summer and in winter. With two log burning stoves and underfloor heating in winter, ideal for golf or walking holidays or even sitting on the terrace in the sun. The convenience of walking to the bakery in the morning to buy bread and croissants with the view of Tourrettes sur loup perched on rock never fails to impress.

Amazing, scenic, perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our 6 day holiday-the villa

Is stunning, huge, spotless, immaculately kept. Private and peaceful. Walk into the picture perfect medieval village-there's plenty of restaurants and the whole place is charming. 30 mins to Nice, 1 hr to Cannes, a car only needed if you want to explore the area. The villa is just perfect, we were 3 adults and 2 teens, everyone had their own room and we never felt crowded. The gardens and pool were just beautiful. My tips-use the BBQ-the food tastes amazing, shop at E Leclerc in Vence, walk into the village and just get lost in the history, read the villa manual-you need to know how to turn the pool alarm off!! I will definitely be returning here, it couldn't have been a more perfect holiday!

Excellent property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find such a lovely house on arrival, contemporary interior in lovely old farmhouse. Everything previous reviewers say is true. Ultra comfortable beds with lovely linen. Great living space, and all provisions made for a comfortable stay. The pool area is great although sadly too cold for us to use during our April stay. We were a family party of three couples and six children, and fitted in comfortably. We love Tourrettes and have been visiting for many years, and this house is the perfect base to enjoy both the village and surrounding attractions. Very helpful "guardienne" in Laurette. Who was both charming and helpful.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the villa. It was well equipped with everything you could need. For us a bonus was having the astro-pitch so close (however it doesn't disturb you) as my boys were itching to play on it. At 5pm they open it to the public each day. Daily we walked into the village which was 5-10minutes depending on where you went. We have stayed in Tourettes before and this is our preferred end of the village as you are also close to Vence/St Paul de Vence and access roads to the airport and coast.

I also agree the beds were extremely comfortable. We were delighted and we hope to return.

Beautiful villa, amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at la-perception villa, the views are beautiful and well enjoyed in the mornings when we had our coffee

The beds in the villa are so comfortable that we slept better than any holiday we have ever had, and the villa has everything you would need to have an amazing holiday

The location was great for days trips to cannes, the coast etc, but we also loved walking up to the town which is stunning with it's lovely restaurants and cafés.

We also had the chef cook a meal for us at the villa and I would really recommend this for an enjoying evening

We will definitely return next year for another holiday

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had four couples for 2 weeks at La Perception and loved every minute. We highly recommended using the chef for a meal. It was delicious and very reasonable, especially considering we had another couple of meals out of the leftovers. We loved being able to walk to the village for our daily croissants or a bit of shopping. Tourrettes sur Loup is very charming, but not nearly as "touristy" as some of the other mountain villages. It is an ideal base for seeing the Cote d'Azur.

Wonderful villa, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is the most wonderful villa. 10 adults and 4 small children stayed in our group, and the accommodation was perfect. Number of bedrooms and bathrooms meant there was plenty of space for everyone, and the grandparents could escape the noise in the top bedroom. Excellent facilities throughout: kitchen, bbq, lounges, TV/DVD, WIFI etc everything you would expect for a luxury villa. The pool is lovely. It's just down some steps from the house, so you obviously have to keep an eye on the kids, but it was perfect for them, with a little baby pool too. The local manager is quickly on hand if there are any problems.

We were unexpectedly delighted with the village of Tourettes Sur Loup too - a very pretty medieval village, great for wandering, shopping and eating ice cream.

We'd have no hesitation in visiting again and recommending to anyone.
