LUXURY PROVENÇAL VILLA 3 MINUTES' WALK TO MEDIEVAL VILLAGE

Tourrettes-sur-Loup Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Double Beds, 1 Studio, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-9

'La Plantade' is a romantic and elegant Provençal villa filled with antiques and fine paintings. It is hidden down a private lane yet only a 3 minute walk to the picturesque medieval artists' village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup. The magnificent views range from the blue of the Côte d'Azur to hilltop 'perched' villages and surrounding mountains. The beautiful landscaped garden contains many varieties of old roses and palms. A large terrace around the house overlooks the pool area and the driveway with parking for 3-4 cars. Nice and its airport are 20 minutes away. First class restaurants abound and sports include tennis (2 minutes' walk), golf, cycling, hiking, riding and paragliding. Cannes, Monaco, Menton, Antibes and Italy are all within easy driving distance. For art lovers there are numerous museums nearby: the Foundation Maeght in St-Paul-de-Vence, the Picasso Museum in Antibes, the Chagall, Renoir and Matisse museums outside of Nice. Please contact the owner for further information.

Golf Courses: On an average of 30-40 minutes’ drive from 'La Plantade' there are 11 outstanding golf courses. Most of these include driving ranges and lessons. They are located in areas also renown for good restaurants, such as in Mougins, where there are 2: Golf de Valescure and Golf de Cannes Mougins. In Valbonne there is Golf d'Opio Valbonne and the Victoria Golf Club, whilst in Grasse there is the Golf de Grasse Country Club and Golf de Saint Donat. Closer to the coast in the famous glass-making village of Biot there is the Golf de Biot. If you want to be very near the coast then just beyond Cannes in Mandelieu-La-Napoule there are another two: Riviera Golf Club and Golf de Cannes Mandelieu. Further afield there is the Monte Carlo Golf Club and another in Tende, Golf de Vievola. Some of these also have pools, tennis courts and riding facilities.

Skiing: There are a number of ski areas within easy driving distance of 'La Plantade.' Winter 2005 saw 5 snowfalls of c 20 centimetres each on the Riviera. The nearest ski area is Gréolières-les-Neiges at 30 minutes’ drive. Its altitude is 1400-1800 m covering more than 1000 ha. There are 10 lifts serving 3 blue, 3 green, 15 red and 2 black runs over 30 kilometres. A drive of slightly over an hour takes you to the ski area of Beuil-Valberg at an altitude of 1430-2100 m.

May Vacation at La Plantade

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 26, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We have just returned from a beautiful vacation at 'La Plantade' in Tourrettes-sur-Loup. This lovely villa is located at the foot of the Maritime Alps with gorgeous views of the hillside medieval village and the Mediterranean in the distance. We enjoyed meals under the shaded patio overlooking rose gardens, manicured grounds and the sparkling pool. Brilliant sunshine, deep blue skies, and temperatures in the low 70's was the perfect climate for May.

The home itself is furnished with some outstanding antiques, paintings and sculptures, yet is modern and up-to-date with amenities like a dishwasher, wi-fi, and washer and drier. We found everything we needed.

The short walk to the village became an almost daily excursion....an excuse to buy fresh breads, quiches and croissants. Everything is available, especially on Wednesday mornings at the open-air market in the village square. We bought vegetables, flowers, olives prepared in many ways, spices and even Provençal table cloths!

The local bus lines are an efficient and inexpensive (€1) way to get around, but we found a car allowed us to see other, less accessible, attractions. One especially notable trip was first to the 'Florian Candied Fruit Factory', followed by a stop at 'Saut de Loup' waterfalls and a winding road trip up to the top of a mountain to see Gourdon, and its 11th century château. It offers views of the Mediterranean, Antibes, Cannes as well as snow-capped distant mountains. Little cafés, restaurants, and tourist amenities add to the charm of this location.

Our time was filled with visits to Molinard Perfume Factory and Museum, the waterfront marina in Antibes and its Old Town, and casual afternoons at Kristin's café, 'Chocolats et Bonbons' in Tourrettes. We also enjoyed a farewell evening with a glass of wine, a platter of cheese and baguettes at 'La Cave' in Tourrettes where locals and Brits gather on Friday nights.

'La Plantade' is the perfect home-away-from home, comfortable, well located for the village as well as excursions further afield, peaceful and an ideal way to absorb the friendly local atmosphere of food, architecture, color, history and charm.

No one could ask for more.
Owner's Response: I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will come back soon. Don't forget that you can then take advantage of the 'returner's discount'!

A PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 4, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
My family of four & I together with some good friends had the pleasure of staying in La Plantade – a private Villa less than 5 minutes walk from the lovely medieval village of Tourrettes sur Loup. This village has very good bakeries, restaurants, butcher shop, gift shops, stores, art galleries, etc. and a post office. Everything is within reach.

Due to our long journey, we prearranged our first night’s dinner with the gardienne, Madame Soussi. We decided this excellent idea the last minute, and since she lives locally, she was able to accommodate us.

La Plantade is a comfortable, quiet, nicely furnished Villa with antiques and some lovely pieces of artwork. It has large living spaces with many windows, and good size bathrooms. The kitchen is very functional and well equipped for our needs. We enjoyed most of our meals in the large balcony overlooking the picturesque village of Tourrettes sur Loup. The swimming pool and the beautiful garden are well maintained. The Villa is very charming inside and out!

The owner, who is well acquainted with Cote D’Azur, is very kind and helpful.
We were supplied with plenty of information for our adventures/activities, and excellent recommendations for restaurants in the area. Our best meals were experienced at the Clovis, Les Baccanales, La Colombe d’Or, and also at Café de Paris in Monaco.

While we stayed only 9 days in La Plantade, we managed to spend a day in Antibes and Cannes, and explored some nearby quaint villages of Vence, Saint Paul de Vence, Biot, Valbonne, and Grasse. Every one of these villages has something special to offer-- from gourmet restaurants, museums, to art galleries. Sadly, we were not able to make the visit to Gourdon, which was highly recommended by the owner.

The owner and Madame Soussi have certainly made our stay as pleasant as possible. It was one of our most relaxing and enjoyable vacations.
We definitely hope to return soon, and stay longer!

charming house

We rented La Plantade for two weeks over Christmas and New Year. it is a charming property, full of character and worked superbly for the celebratory gatherings we hosted, whether sitting on the terrace in the midday sun, having drinks in front of the large fireplace in the drawing room or more formal eating around the dining table. it also felt cosy without guests. The kitchen was well equipped for serious cooking. the beds were comfortable. The walk into the village is short and delightfully picturesque - the Boulangerie and Patisserie are both excellent. in summary, it feels like a real home, not an anonymous rental villa. One caveat on cost- the laundry, heating and cleaning extras added substantially to the weekly rental cost. However, we felt it remained good value overall and definitely wish to return.

Two perfect weeks in La Plantade

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 10, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
My family with our good friends had two marvelous weeks in La Plantade. It was a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. There were adults, teenagers and a child in our party, and we all had a really great time. We took all bedrooms of the villa and the studio. The bedrooms are of medium size. The kitchen is small but quite comfortable.
Unfortunately, we were very unlucky with the weather during most of our stay and couldn’t enjoy the great pool in full (it was too cold), but we managed to take quite a few trips - up into some beautiful mountainside villages to the north and Monte Carlo, Ventimiglia in Italy (about 1 hour drive), Vence, St Tropez, Nice, although getting to the highway was usually difficult due to traffic jams. Of course we spent a lot of time exploring the beautiful Tourrettes sur Loup itself, played tennis (excellent courts are very close to the villa) and enjoyed communication at the spacious terrace or in the cosy living room when the rain intensified too much. The place is so quiet and relaxing you can forget the rest of the world exists, but at the same time you are just a short walk away from a beautiful village.
The owner was very kind and helpful with arrival information, ease of payment, activity list etc. We were very pleased to find an excellent library in different languages and a lot of little things needed: blankets, umbrellas etc. and all the detailed information about the area.

We spent a fabulous week at La Plantade in July 2010, (very sorry it was not longer) La Plantade is like a home NOT a vacation home! It is a long journey from Australia and we were made welcome early and the Villa was beautifully presented. We had arranged via the Caretaker for some initial provisions to be provided....The care and thought that was given to those provisions was extremely welcomed. The Terraces and Gardens are positioned so that you may enjoy them from breakfast through to late evening and the view to Tourrettes sur Loup is particularly beautiful. The Villa is well located so that you may enjoy nothing but the House, Garden, Pool and the Village of Tourrettes or a more fast paced Holiday with Nice, Canne, Monte Carlo etc being right on your door step.
We higly recommend La Plantade and know we will be visiting again and again.

Tourrettes-sur-Loup
Car: recommended

Tourrettes-sur-Loup is a beautiful medieval village situated on a hilltop overlooking the blue Mediterranean and its adjacent promontories. Built as a refuge over 1200 years ago against the invasions of the Saracens it became in the 20th century a place renowned for attracting artists of all persuasions: poets, painters, musicians, sculptors, film directors and movie stars. Among these were Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Lelouche (of 'A Man and a Woman' fame), and Jacques Prévert.

Today its narrow pedestrian streets contain a wealth of artistic shops. There are art galleries, textile weavers, ceramic potteries and original jewellers. Four outstanding restaurants nestle in its alleyways.

Ten minutes away is famous St. Paul-de-Vence with its innumerable art galleries and the renown Fondation Maeght, home to a vast collection of Miro's, Giacometti's, Calder's, etc.

Further afield to the south the glamour and sophistication of Nice offer exciting nightlife complete with casinos, theatres, concert halls and the opera together with high-end world-class shopping.

The excitement of Cannes and its film festival are only 35-40 minutes away while Antibes with its world-class marina - considered the biggest and best in the Mediterranean - is even closer. Its elegant centre and fascinating Picasso waterfront museum are not to be missed.

Going north you encounter the romantic 'arrière pays' where life continues in the old ways and for the daring sport enthusiast there is paragliding and even skiing in the winter at Gréolieres.

Often at Christmas time you can be sitting in your shirtsleeves in the sunshine enjoying the view to the Mediterranean while contemplating the afternoon's skiing expedition!

Notes:
Because 'La Plantade' contains very good quality antique furniture it is generally not advisable to bring small children. The layout of the house is as follows: a 2-story Main House (having a Master Bedroom & En suite Bathroom on the ground floor and 2 further Bedrooms - 1 Double & 1 Twin - sharing a Bathroom on the 1st floor) with a lower ground floor Studio containing a Kitchenette with Bathroom and Twin Beds. The latter is adjacent to the pool. The large Reception Room with open fireplace and adjoining Dining Room on the ground floor (see photograph) is surrounded by a sunny terrace and a shaded pergola where there is a dining table for 8 people and another for 4. The Kitchen is small after the Provençal fashion but serviceable with all the necessary equipment from microwave to dishwasher. Washing machine and drier are next door in the downstairs cloakroom. Typical French shutters keep out the worst of the heat in high summer but fans are provided. In winter heating is electric.
