About the property

South facing Luxury Villa with pool minutes walk from Tourrettes sur loup

A charming 150 year old villa, totally refurbished in a modern elegant style. Spacious accommodation for 10 people and facilities to match. Located within a ten minute walk of an unspoilt medieval village. It has an ample sized shaded outside eating area with large barbecue, patio, summer kitchen. 5 bedrooms (with comfortable king size and normal single size beds, 4 bathrooms, 2 separate WCs. Both lounges and kitchen have French windows onto south facing terrace. Light and airy villa, beautifully furnished with large garden and terraces. The south facing house is in excellent condition throughout and has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard .

The house was originally the local tax collectors office for Tourrettes sur loup (cite des violets) and dates back to around 1850. There are stunning views of the Cote d’Azur from every window in the house stretching from Nice to the Estoril. Photos cannot do this justice. The swimming pool is non chlorinated, 11x4m with outdoor hot & cold shower and has sun all day. Gated parking for 4-5 car. Lavender terrace, jasmin, mimosa, honeysuckle, fragrant roses, apricot, cherry, peach, eucalyptus tree, olive trees, Ideal for family gatherings.

Electricity is not included in winter rentals. We are pleased to say that all our clients have been impressed with our property and have stated that the photos do not do justice to the location and views, as well as the size and its furnishings. We would like to offer previous clients preferential rates for any further future bookings.

Should you require a chef to cook for you for an evening, extra cleaning for an hour a day or baby sitting please contact the owner as all these services can be provided. Looking at a mobile pedicure/manicure service, wine tasting tour of the region, our Services Manager Christine can arrange reasonable rates for any of these extra services. Arriving late and need your shopping waiting? Christine can also help provide your food essentials . In addition electricity will be metered and deducted from the security deposit (an amount of £500 or 700 Euros, in case of breakages or damage) from October to May.

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 Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

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.

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.

Fantastic Property on fringe of Tourettes sur Loup

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed every moment in "La Perception". The house was immaculate and there was ample space both indoors and out. Pool is a great addition and was very clean. Only the kids were brave enough to remain in it given the October water temperature! Families with toddlers may need to be extra vigilent due to the small drop from the house terrace to the lavender terrace. Tourettes sur loup is a fantastic village, your every need can be catered for, but if you desire larger scale shopping/supermarkets Vence is little more than 5 minutes drive down the hill. La Perception is a brilliant base to explore the surrounding countryside. During our stay we ventured to Grasse (perfume capital of the world it seems), Gourdon (very pretty perched village with amazing views over the countryside to the med), Pont de Loup (little more than the Florian sweet shop - free tour, but you exit via the shop which is a bit expensive, but has really nice treats), St Paul de Vence (famed for numerous art galleries but really worth a visit) Heading to the coast we had a great wander round Antibes and along to Monaco/Monte Carlo. It really was a great experience sitting in Cafe de Paris and watching how the other half live!!! Would totally recommend this property and area to all.

Simply Sublime!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa La Perception was all we could have hoped for and more! Spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped, close to the old village (via a lovely pedestrian walkway), it was the perfect venue for a long anticipated girls getaway (five of us)! The beautiful photos on the website are accurate but also don't do it justice - it's even better in person! The first morning we encountered a surprise "vide grenier" (aka flea market!) on the pedestrian way - what fun! Tourrettes is a charming, historic village away from the tourist areas, bustling (in a quiet way) with daily village life. The village has everything you need if you don't want to venture beyond (although we did!) - grocery, boulangeries(2), boucherie, restaurants (including reasonably-priced, delicious Michelin-star Gourmand Clovis - reservations a must!), café/bars, take aways (pizza, etc.), lovely shops & galleries, wine cave, violette museum, and four boules courts! The villa provides great comfort, privacy, and a sense of peaceful calm, not to mention the stunning views to the sea and wonderful aromas from the lavender, rosemary, and roses. Our primary gathering place each morning and evening was the large kitchen (it was a bit too cool to take advantage of the outdoor kitchen for dinners) although we did use the barbecue/grill. We loved coming "home" each evening from our daily trips out (Vence, Cannes, Mougins, Nice, Haut de Cagnes, Villefranche, St. Jean-Cap Ferrat, La Turbie, Eze, Monaco/Monte Carlo, Grasse) to cook and enjoy dinner, having purchased fresh produce at the markets, fresh fish from the Wednesday truck in Tourrettes, daily fresh baguettes and amazing pastries (the pain au chocolat for breakfast from one of the local boulangeries was the best we've ever had!) and lots of Cotes du Provence dry rosé wine (2 to 5 euros a bottle!). Hazel was so helpful and responsive both before and after our stay, and Laurette on site was delightful and helpful. I (the trip planner) am already looking to a return stay at La Perception with my extended family. In summary, our week at Villa La Perception was truly "simply sublime."
