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 the shops and restaurants were closed. But, that actually made for a more enjoyable couple of hours. The streets were not packed with tourists. I suspect most of the people there were residents or locals. The atmosphere inside the town was perfect, almost like roaming a movie set created to depict the perfect medieval village. A few people were sitting at cafes sipping coffee. We ran into several cats who clearly lived in the village and enjoyed a protected environment where they could wander the streets. There is an opening through the wall that allows you to sit outside and look out over the countryside. From this point, is it also possible to turn around a look back to the walls of the city.We took some great photos during out stay. I'm not sure what the city would be like during the busy tourist season, but on a beautiful October day it was a delightful place to be.
