A spectacular home in the hills of Tourrettes-sur-Loup with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. The 350m 2 bastide has been recently renovated to provide four sumptuous bedrooms with three bathrooms, double reception room and two kitchens. It has been luxuriously fitted with every modern convenience and exquisitely furnished with antiques and art from around the South of France.
The house is set within a flat lawned garden with a huge covered outdoor dining room and family BBQ. Landscaped within the rock is a stunning 15 metre free form pool with waterfall, Jacuzzi and spa – one of the top spots on the Riviera to sip champagne overlooking the Med.
The bastide is fully south facing, set in a 3000 m2 landscaped garden mostly laid out in flat lawn fringed with palm trees, olive and citrus fruit trees. From the house, French doors lead out to a huge covered terrace and outdoor dining room with a big wooden table and chairs, stone sink. There is also a boules court.
My property has been very popular and has already been booked for the entire summer season this year from mid May until mid September by the Scott Dunn travel agency. So please ask them about availability in the summer season.

Our family’s stay at your villa was simply AMAZING! Two days back home now, and I still imagine myself basking in the sun by the pool, luxuriating in the hot-tub beneath the stars, playing ping pong with my kids on the patio, grilling dinner on the grand covered terrace, enjoying the manicured gardens, sleeping in that fabulous marbled master suite and, in general, living “La Vita e Bella.” I had been to the Riviera and Provence before, but never to Tourettes-sur-Loop. We absolutely loved it, even more than the other more famous villages in the area. We found your sprawling villa to be even more elegant and luxurious than the photos online; it definitely exceeded all our expectations. So very peaceful and relaxing. And the views of the Provencal hills and the sea were to die for! It was the PERFECT location for everything our family wanted to do, whether it was day trips to Monaco or Cannes, or just walking into the dreamy medieval town of Tourettes every day for pastries, shopping, or dinner. Our last night there, we at what we all agreed was the best restaurant we’ve ever eaten at: La Bistro Rouge. Even in little Tourettes, it was difficult to find, but oh, so very worth it. No menu; you just eat whatever genius chef/entertainer Stefan cooks up for you. Five stars to this villa for giving our family an unforgettable experience of a lifetime!
It was a perfect stay. The house and the pool are a dream. The overview about the Cote D`Azur took every morning again our breath away.
The interior is absolut perfect and shows the excellent taste of the owner.
There a some very old and charming antiques and still everything in the house is in newest technical state of the art. Unlike in many other houses we found here the perfect mattress. Every evening we sat under the roof at the barbecue and enjoyed the changes of the light.
The whole family was truly sad to leave an we hope to return next year.
Our stay in this house was a very enjoyable one. Everything works to perfection, and you very quickly feel at home. The decor is a joy to the eye, filled with beautiful antiques and comfortable furnitures. Even the bedrooms are fitted with lots of antiques, except for the beds, with fantastic comfortable thick madrases. You feel nothing has been spared here but the best. Although the house did not have air conditioning the temperature was always comfortable due to the very thick walls and light breeze through the house.
The outside area is also a joy, with the large covered patio with old wooden beams to cary the roof, a great barbecue with built in fireplace at bottom. The pool is very beautiful with cliff wall and waterfall - more like a large free formed pond than a ordinary pool.
The villa was clean and proper upon arrival, and there was always a quick answer from the owner while booking.
The area is very charming and we will definitely be coming back.
