Lovely Stay in Magical Tourettes sur Loup
Elegant modern eco-designed house, well furnished, thoughtfully laid out, tastefully and uniquely decorated, many comforts and books and diversions, beautiful solar heated pool. Very short walk to village, where many great dining options, a stunning old Catholic Church, and excellent markets and stores. Agnes the manager was incredibly helpful and responsive, helped arrange transportation, answered all questions, give us referrals for services and shopping, and also cleaned throughly after the first of our two weeks' stay. The owner was also responsive and helpful, and the house outdid the description. Location and views were to die for. Even with significant tail of the heat wave house was comfortable with fans and blind/window system. We hope to return next year! Pool was also cleaned twice in our stay. Received deposit back from manager evening before our early morning departure, which was a very kind accommodation.
We had a really lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
House was comfortable and pool was great. Views fantastic. Location gave easy access to village. Lighting to terrace puzzling in the evenings- usually went off 3 times before behaving itself!!
Gold stars to boulangerie and boucherie. Piano and library were an added bonus as were the cuddly toys (loved by the grandchildren). All in all a wonderful holiday.
Good property, fantastic location
The location and pool are the absolute best things about this property. Beautiful pool and patio area (if a little cool in the water!); astroturf lawn looks good and is practical but can get very hot to walk on. This 'upside down' house offers stunning views towards the coast, with living on first floor and most sleeping below, was pretty well appointed with an amazing book collection. It worked well for us with grown up children although we weren't aware that one of the double rooms was completely self-contained (used out of peak season as an airbnb). This was a bit of a nuisance at times but not a major problem for our family set up. Living area was excellent and kitchen was good/ok - extensive work surfaces, large fridge freezer and good ovens, a bit light on basic cooking utensils and good wine glasses so we ended up buying a few and leaving for future guests. Some attention is needed to exterior decking area but we understand this is already planned and the stairgate at top of the stairs and handrail are a bit precarious! We did struggle a bit with the heat as the house isn't air conditioned but the lovely and ever helpful Agnes provided us with an extra fan. The location of this house is superb, it's just half an hour from Nice airport and the village of Tourettes is a 6-7 minute walk down/uphill. The village itself is charming and picturesque with stunning views, very well looked after and welcoming. It has good basic shops (Vence's bigger supermarkets just a 10 min drive) and delightful craft and gift shops in its historic medieval streets. We had some excellent meals at some of the village's numerous restaurants. Lots to see and do in the area - we tried canyoning in the gorge (not for the faint hearted!), visited other local villages as well as Monaco and Antibes. A guest/ visitor comments book in the house would have been helpful to provide good tips from previous visitors. All in all we had a great holiday - thank you.
We had a perfect stay for our family
Magnificent view, perfect house for our family of teenagers, grandparents and kids....enchanting village, unforgettable food...but most of all our hosts were fantastic. Thank you Emmanuel and Isabelle.
A beautiful villa situated in beautiful surroundings
My family and I had a lovely holiday experience in Isabelle and Emmanuel's beautiful villa, perfectly situated on a mountain in Tourrettes Sur Loop.
From the villa's large terrace we enjoyed the tranquility and the wonderful view of Nice / Cannes and the sea, which could be seen from the villa's large terrace.
The villa is only 5 minutes. From the ancient medieval city, which is incredibly beautiful and definitely requires a visit.
The villa is equipped with all the necessary things you need and much more.
We loved staying on the villa's terrace and not least in the large swimming pool.
Our expectations were fully met, no problems - all the formalities were ok.
A super villa, which we hope to come back to.
Large villa with very nice pool in walking distance of amazing village
We (2 families with 4 adults and 5 kids) had a wonderful holiday in July 2018. The villa is very spacious and well equipped, the pool is brand new, delicate and large, the outdoor ping pong table was a real hit and Tourettes-sur-Loup is such an amazing village. So why "only" four and not five stars? It's the smaller things, like (1) no direct access from the kitchen to the garden and pool area, (2) no view from the pool area (only from the upper floor), (3) lack of air condition (not a big problem, though) and (4) the feeling of living in someone's home. Nevertheless, this is a villa we would be happy to recommend to anyone!
Many artists have stayed at Tourettes and the village retains a significant artistic and craft. A 7 kilometers from Saint Paul de Vence, you are 20 minutes from the sea and 1/2 hour from Nice. Excursions, golf, tennis, paragliding, water skiing and swimming are within your reach.
