When our family left for Italy, after spending a week in Mas des Kardouons in Tourettes sur Loup, our girls (aged 10 and 14 ) didn't want to leave! This was our second visit here, and like the first time (two years before) we had a wonderful time in this place. Raymond and Madelen are the most kind and helpful hosts, and the place itself is so nice and peaceful. We stayed in the ground floor apartment, the Violettes apartment, which offers two separate bedrooms, a small kitchenette and bathroom. Right outside the apartment we had our own table where Raymond served us delicious breakfast every morning, and there is a nice garden with a small pool and also an outdoor kitchen where you can prepare your own meals if you want. The village itself is only a two minutes walk away, and Tourettes sur Loup is in a good position for exploring the area around. After visiting the more busy and touristic places like Nice and Cannes, we were more than happy to return to the Mas des Kardouons in the evening! As I said, the girls didn't want to leave; so I think we might return for the third time another summer!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Between sea and mountain, 14 kilometres from beaches, is a place, Tourrettes-sur-Loup, where, a century ago, violets chose to grow. Still today the cultivation of this delicate flower constitutes one of the main activities and the extent of production earned the village its title "City of Violets." A fortified site in the 11th century, with houses forming ramparts, Tourrettes possesses an original architectural richness linked around a half-moon central route. Appreciated by film producers from 1925, Tourrettes became a meeting place for musicians, painters, writers and poets, and saw a creation revival in the fifties. Artisan weavers settled there and, in their impetus, attracted other disciplines of quality. Today, more than thirty workshops and galleries make it a place of high standing for arts and crafts on the French Riviera. ... more less
