Property description

The property is located approximately 7 minutes to Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a charming medieval village that sits between the sea (about 14 kilometres away) and the Alpes Maritime. Take a look at the property in summer using the video link on this page.

The ground level of the villa (the upper level is unoccupied during rentals) and guest cottage has 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. There is a full kitchen as well as a small kitchenette in the separate guest cottage. The property is south facing with a beautiful 13 meter swimming pool, gets sun throughout the day, and is still bright in the long summer evenings. This is a very comfortable campus for friends and family. The stone wall terraced garden has olive, orange, lemon, mandarin, apricot, cherry, and fig trees. Imagine eating on the outdoor terrace in the evening in the midst of the many rosemary and lavender bushes that dot the property. There are also many places to get away to read or just sit and relax.

Long summer evenings with a southern exposure, a beautiful swimming pool, and plenty of room on the property to wander.

The views are spectacular! There is even a petanque court shaded by two mulberry trees. This is a house that has become a favorite destination for many friends and family and there have been many repeat visitors.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: I grew up in New York City and have worked in many places including the Caribbean, Washington, DC, Monaco, London, and Paris. My professional field is telecom/IT. My business life is hectic with lots of travel but I get back to this house to rejuvenate as often as I can.

Why Tourrettes-sur-Loup, France:
I lived and worked in Monaco for 3 years and bought this house as a second home before moving to London. It is approximately 7 minutes to Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a charming medieval village that sits between the sea (about 14 kilometres away) and the Alpes Maritime. It is known as the 'City of Violets' because it is a center for the cultivation of that flower which is used in perfumes manufactured in nearby Grasse. Appreciated by film producers since 1925, Tourrettes became a meeting place for musicians, painters, writers and poets. Artisan weavers also settled there and today more than thirty workshops and galleries are located in the town.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You are 30 minutes from Nice airport, and the same amount of time if you want to go to the beaches of Nice or Cannes. The hills here are lovely, quiet, and peaceful especially during the summer rush. Market day in the central town square of Tourrettes is every Wednesday where you can buy locally produced cheeses, meats, and other tasty items as well as high quality fabrics. If you do want to leave the property, there is plenty to see. Cannes, Mougins, and Nice are each about 30 minutes drive and offer many attractions including restaurants, museums, and cinema. Monaco is about 1 hour away so you can go for the day and return to the property to relax with an evening swim. Italy can become a day trip as the northern Italian border is easily reachable within 1 hour! Culturally, this is a very sophisticated location and you have access to the Foundation Maeght (15 minutes), one of the premier art museums in Europe. Also, there is a Matisse museum in Nice and the Matisse Chapel in Vence (15 minutes), Picasso museum in Antibes, and the home of Renoir in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Golf is available in Opio (20 minutes) and tennis right in the town. During the summer months there are many music festivals throughout the French Riviera, including Jazz a Juan in Juan Les Pins and the Monte Carlo Summer Music Festival. In the winter you can go skiing for the day at Auron or Isola 2000 and be back in the evening for dinner.
