Just as good as St Paul de Vence, but no crowds! Nice little market on Wednesday mornings, pastry shops & rests.

An absolutely charming medieval walled village close to Vence and St. Paul de Vence. A must see for lovers of Provence, as it is off the beaten track and away from tourist hoards. A great way to spend the day for those in the area of Antibes, Cannes or Grasse. Charming cobbled streets, little cafes, eateries, boutiques and patisserie line... More

The small medieval village situated on a rocky buttress ,overhanging precipices is quite calm and less populated with art and craft cultured people exhibiting their skills in small shops for purchase to the visitors. We had been to Nice during August 2013 and we intend to visit hilly villages nearby and the tour was arranged for 5hrs by car by... More

Lovely walled village with lots of life, but not overtouristy: still has boucherie and 2 boulangeries etc. A great place to stay (and visit)

Have been to Tourettes almost a dozen times, the village itself is similar to many other beautiful medieval villages found in France, there's small speciality souvenir shops, boulangeries and French cuisine restaurants, etc ..but what makes Tourettes special is the people you meet. We were invited to the wine bar on a Friday night and met many friendly expat professionals... More

During our stay in the Nice area, my husband and I devoted a day to seeing local hill towns. We had visited two hill towns in Tuscany last year, and were curious how the Provence town would compare. We were not disappointed, and Tourettes-sur-Loup was our favorite. We visited in the second week of October so, unfortunately, a lot of... More

We did the after diner walk through the little town and enjoyed the atmosphere of ancient French living. The town is small but authentic you will love it

Make the trip to see this medieval village.....not nearly as crowded as Saint Paul de Vence but more beautiful. There was free parking and a shuttle to take you into the village. Beautiful streets and around every corner was another stunning alleyway with gorgeous views.

Tourrettes is truly beautiful. Much of its charm lies in the fact it is not overrun with tourists unlike so many of its neighbours. We spent 2 weeks in this village and intend to return
