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

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
