Why The Owner chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup
'La Plantade' is a family home with antiques, art and memorabilia belonging to my parents and grandparents. As such, it is warmly welcoming and unique as a rental property. It contains many unusual items with historical significance.
What makes this Villa unique
The location of the house is perfect with respect to its distance to the lovely perched village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup. It is easily 'walkable' within 3 to 5 minutes - depending upon your legs, energy and hunger for that 'café au lait'! It has beautiful views extending to the blue Esterel mountains and sea by St Tropez to nearer mountains and bays plus beautiful Tourrettes. There is fantastic hiking, skiing, golf, food all within short distances.

We had a wonderful time in Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Andrea’s home was beautiful, clean, and we had plenty of space for the 6 of us. The house has everything you need. The walk to town was easy . We enjoyed waking up in the morning to walk to town to get croissants and baguettes. The house is in a great location, we did day trips to Nice, Monaco, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat,Gordon Verge, Antibes, a day drive through the Alps and shopping in St. Paul Vence.
There is a large grocery store just a short drive away.
We at dinner in town at the Medieval which was good.
There are so many options for things to do or your just can relax at the house and take in the views.
Andrea was always quick to respond, and pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you, Lindsay, for choosing 'La Plantade' for your holiday. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the house and that you had the opportunity to visit so many of the neighbouring sights. It sounds as if you had a busy but relaxing time. I hope you come back for another holiday (with a returner's discount) because there is still much to experience!
Wonderful villa in beautiful location
We have just had a wonderful family holiday in this villa. We were a party of eight adults and a two year old and the house still seemed spacious. The villa is full of character and the gardens are beautifully kept. We had our meals on the terrace from where we had spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the beautiful village of Tourettes sur Loup. The villa is in a superb position being a very short walk from the village centre. We were delighted to find that there was a small playground, basketball court and table tennis tables within 100 metres of the property. The medieval village was bigger than we'd imagined and absolutely charming. Our host, Andrea provided us with a wealth of information about the villa and things to do in the area. We brought toys and inflatables for the pool with us but needn't have bothered as these were also provided. Previous occupants have mentioned the narrow drive. Our son managed it comfortably in a Citroen C3 and we took a bit longer in a 7 seater Zafira but there is a free car park very close by for those not wanting this particular challenge.
All in all a superb property in a fantastic location which we wholeheartedly recommend.
Fantastic house in fantastic area
Renting Andrea’s property was the perfect vacation experience for us. The house is magical and the area is fantastic. All the art pieces and decorations of the house makes it a wonder to walk around in and around, the pool area is lovely and the views are spectacular.
If the house is not enough for you to hang out in the village is just a five minute walk away and it has a good variation of restaurants.
Being a big fan of the region since before I really couldn’t have come to a better place and I know my travel companions share this view. I had an absolutely amazing time there and can’t wait to go back.
Thank you so much, Marten! So glad you enjoyed it. Can't wait to have you back. There's much more to see!
A nice vacation in Tourrettes
The house is well located with a beautiful view of the village. The village is within walking distance which is very practical. The house itself is very special, beautifully decorated and with real personal touches. The pool and the garden are perfect. All appliances and linen is available in sufficient quantities. The beds are good quality. We were 9 people, 6 adults and 3 children and everybody was confortable and private. During the very warm periods air conditioning was available and working. The landlady is a very welcoming and friendly. The only two slightly negative points were : there were road works in the village which were very noisy. There are some issues with water seapage in the garage and one of the studios downstairs which require attending to. We shall come back for sure.
I am very pleased, Sana, that you and your family had a pleasant stay at La Plantade. I apologise for the water damage that occurred just prior to your visit and which had to dry out before it could be fixed. I can assure you that everything has now been sorted. I hope that you will come back for a visit soon when I will be delighted to give you a returner's discount.
Luxury private villa
What a fantastic property in a wonderful location.
The outside space was superb, wonderful terraces overlooking the old town, wrap around garden with always a spot of shade and an amazing pool.
With 5 bedrooms it was a most spacious property.
Tourrettes-sur-Loup was a short walk away with an array of eateries , a beautiful town and we made the most of the Wednesday market.
Andrea was a fantastic host most communicative and shared lots of useful information.
A memorable family holiday.
Thank you, Maggie, for your kind words!
I am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I hope I will have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future when , as a returning guest, you will have a discount on your holiday.
We´ve had a wonderful week at La Plantade. Our first, second and third priority when booking a vacation home is proximity to restaurants, bakeries, cafés etc. and La Plantade delivered in spades. The walk into Tourrettes-sur-loup is both short and beautiful, and we found ourselves going back and forth several times a day just to get a baguette or a glass of wine - just how we like it. Our rental car got hardly any mileage added.
The house itself is nice, with a beautiful garden and lovely views. Bathrooms are of a previous generation, but we chalked it up to charm and hardly noticed. We spent most of our time outside either way.
Andrea is a first class hostess and kept in touch throughout our stay, always responsive and helpful
I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I hope to be able to welcome you back in the future when I would be delighted to give you a 'returner's discount'!
Tourrettes-sur-Loup is a beautiful medieval village situated on a hilltop overlooking the blue Mediterranean and its adjacent promontories. Built as a refuge over 1200 years ago against the invasions of the Saracens it became in the 20th century a place renowned for attracting artists of all persuasions: poets, painters, musicians, sculptors, film directors and movie stars. Among these were Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Lelouche (of 'A Man and a Woman' fame), and Jacques Prévert.
Today its narrow pedestrian streets contain a wealth of artistic shops. There are art galleries, textile weavers, ceramic potteries and original jewellers. Four outstanding restaurants nestle in its alleyways.
Ten minutes away is famous St. Paul-de-Vence with its innumerable art galleries and the renown Fondation Maeght, home to a vast collection of Miro's, Giacometti's, Calder's, etc.
Further afield to the south the glamour and sophistication of Nice offer exciting nightlife complete with casinos, theatres, concert halls and the opera together with high-end world-class shopping.
The excitement of Cannes and its film festival are only 35-40 minutes away while Antibes with its world-class marina - considered the biggest and best in the Mediterranean - is even closer. Its elegant centre and fascinating Picasso waterfront museum are not to be missed.
Going north you encounter the romantic 'arrière pays' where life continues in the old ways and for the daring sport enthusiast there is paragliding and even skiing in the winter at Gréolieres.
Often at Christmas time you can be sitting in your shirtsleeves in the sunshine enjoying the view to the Mediterranean while contemplating the afternoon's skiing expedition!
