“Hidden gem”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Beautifully well preserved medieval hilltop village, well worth a visit.
There is a park and ride service from the lower car park.

“Peaceful Medieval village”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Peaceful medieval village, what a hidden gem. The walled village is quiet and beautiful. Visited here for a family wedding first time but came back to explore when we came to the area again. Parking in the centre can be busy but the park and ride service is top rate and free, a little mini bus runs back and forth between the centre and car park, which is not too far to walk but the roads are a little narrow and so safer with children or those not so quick on their feet. There are some beautiful views over the countryside and some wonderful courtyard cafes.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

We visited on market day (Wednesday). After a look around the market and a coffee in one of the cafes overlooking the market square we had a look around the medieval village. The buildings were beautiful with stunning views of the cote d'asur.
To add to the pleasure was the fact that the tourist shops making up the majority of those found in the village were not selling the usual tat but instead sold locally produced gifts and jewellery.
In fact it took me some time to prise away my two magpie travelling companions from the boutiques.

“Beautiful Ancient Medieval village”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

If you are visiting the south of France, get out of the cities and visit some of the beautiful medieval villages which you can get to easily from Nice or other beach locations - Tourrettes sur loup is a great choice!
Just walking around the ancient streets and looking at the walls and houses is a trip through time. you will enjoy the many shops selling local crafts, art etc.
The views are fantastic.
If possible - go off season. We were there in April and there were no crowds.
Can't recommend it enough - Don't miss it!!
