Lovely old hilltop village

A little further out in the hills behind the cote d Azure but a great find a quaint and nicely kept little village well worth the trip

We stumbled across this small village but are glad we did. It is steeped in history and the narrow medieval back alleys are a pleasure to explore. It looks like a film set. There are fantastic photo views of the deep valley and countryside as you look over the side of the higgledy piggledy buildings. Well worth a visit...

I've visited this so typical medieval village with E bike Riviera tours from Nice city. It's a very beautiful village not enough known by tourists and it's close to St Paul de Vence where you could also visit Arts foundation and Matisse Chapelle with some of his main paintings. There is also a very good small (and not so expensive)... More

To avoid numerous large groups of tourists following a guide carrying a sign or umbrella, you should visit the many attractions in the South of France well out of their normal season. You may find some of the shops or restaurants are closed, but there will still be plenty available. Tourettes is a medieval town with lots of narrow streets... More

We stopped by and walked around the village on our way to Vence. It is very pictoresque and has an unusual atmosphere. For me it was a delightful surprise and much more beautiful than highly praised Gordes. There are some well-rated restaurants as well but we were there too late for a lunch.

Beautiful medieval village know for violets. Picturesque with cobblestone streets and very hilly. While similar to other villages I found it to be less crowded! The violet ice cream is amazing. Tourrettes was a special treat. Lunch at Le Medieval and a visit to the olive wood shop next door were highlights of my visit to the South of France.... More

A beautiful village perched on a rock that has a very special atmosphere. A lot of people miss it as the drive thought it. One has to deserve Tourrettes sur Loup ! It is a village whe people care for eachother, where people take the time to love and savour life. You need to explore the little alleys and sit... More

In the autumn this little town is uncrowded and sunlit against the dramatic limestone valleys of the region. There are plenty of great restaurants, a compact supermarket and the finest of tourist information offices. All have been carefully placed so that the town remains unspoiled and authentic. On the outskirts, visit the little chapel with charming 1950's murals en route... More
