1. Re: tourettes/ vence sights, restaurants???

Tourettes sur-Loup is a charming mountain village with a number of artisans in residence; from there it's about an hour's drive to the very perched village of Gourdon, with a fine château that you can visit. Lunch at the Eagle's Nest is pleasant.

From Tourettes you can drive down to Vence (see the Matisse chapel), St-Paul-de-Vence, Haut de Cagnes, Mougins, Valbonne, Biot, Antibes...the list goes on an on. And then there's Nice.... Pick up a copy of the Michelin Green Guide to the French Riviera for other ideas and suggested itineraries. October is a great time to be there...as we will be too.

One restaurant that's popular, especially among people interested in art, is La Colombe d'Or, in St-Paul. Over the years artists gave their works to the owner in lieu of payment for room and board, and the paintings hang in the restaurant and hotel.

If you want a special restaurant, make reservations at Jacques Maximin's house in Vence: two Michelin rosettes.
