Long summer evenings with a southern exposure, a beautiful swimming pool, and plenty of room on the property to wander.

About Kevin Power

I grew up in New York City and have worked in many places including the Caribbean, Washington, DC, Monaco, London, and Paris. My professional field is telecom/IT. My business life is hectic with lots of travel but I get back to this house to rejuvenate as often as I can.

Kevin Power purchased this house in 1999

Why Kevin Power chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup

I lived and worked in Monaco for 3 years and bought this house as a second home before moving to London. It is approximately 7 minutes to Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a charming medieval village that sits between the sea (about 14 kilometres away) and the Alpes Maritime. It is known as the 'City of Violets' because it is a center for the cultivation of that flower which is used in perfumes manufactured in nearby Grasse.

Appreciated by film producers since 1925, Tourrettes became a meeting place for musicians, painters, writers and poets. Artisan weavers also settled there and today more than thirty workshops and galleries are located in the town.

What makes this house unique

You are 30 minutes from Nice airport, and the same amount of time if you want to go to the beaches of Nice or Cannes. The hills here are lovely, quiet, and peaceful especially during the summer rush. Market day in the central town square of Tourrettes is every Wednesday where you can buy locally produced cheeses, meats, and other tasty items as well as high quality fabrics.

If you do want to leave the property, there is plenty to see. Cannes, Mougins, and Nice are each about 30 minutes drive and offer many attractions including restaurants, museums, and cinema. Monaco is about 1 hour away so you can go for the day and return to the property to relax with an evening swim.

Italy can become a day trip as the northern Italian border is easily reachable within 1 hour!

Culturally, this is a very sophisticated location and you have access to the Foundation Maeght (15 minutes), one of the premier art museums in Europe. Also, there is a Matisse museum in Nice and the Matisse Chapel in Vence (15 minutes), Picasso museum in Antibes, and the home of Renoir in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Golf is available in Opio (20 minutes) and tennis right in the town.

During the summer months there are many music festivals throughout the French Riviera, including Jazz a Juan in Juan Les Pins and the Monte Carlo Summer Music Festival.

In the winter you can go skiing for the day at Auron or Isola 2000 and be back in the evening for dinner.

Villa La Combe au Loup -- Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
We spent a superb two weeks at Villa La Combe au Loup in July 2013. It is exceptionally nice for a close family or group who enjoy cooking, eating, conversing and swimming together in beautifully maintained, spacious and private grounds that capture the spirit and beauty of Provence and the Côte d’Azur. The covered terrace with grill for outdoor cooking was the focal point of all our meals and gatherings, and a great place to bring guests. The house has excellent access to wonderful places like Tourrettes sur Loup, St. Paul de Vence and other ”villages perchés” of the Alpes Maritimes. Easy access also to the beaches and towns and cities along the coast. Good shopping in nearby markets and small shops and in supermarkets in Vence. Wireless Internet made it very easy to work and stay in touch while enjoying a comfortable and well-equipped home in one of the most pleasant regions in France. The owner and local manager are delightful people – just attentive enough and easy-going. Our family of six adults and an infant had a terrific time here and it would be our first choice for a relaxing return visit to the South of France.

A Fabulous Stay in the Cote d'Azur

A Fabulous Stay in the Cote d'Azur
  • 5 of 5
We had the most fabulous stay in this lovely home near the little village of Tourettes sur loup. Lovely grounds, swimming pool, outdoor dining, privacy. The village is charming and the locals very friendly.

You couldn't ask for a better base to explore this amazing area in the Cote d'Azur. We explored numerous charming villages, as well as the more well known, Monte Carlo, Cannes and Nice.

At the end of a busy day, coming back to this lovely home was pure comfort!

We would definitely stay here again.

ODE TO VILLA LA COMBE AU LOUP

  • 5 of 5
The color and bustle of a small medieval French village on marketplace morning—fresh fish and flowers, art and antiques, the artists’ town of Tourettes sur Loup quickly became our favorite.

Perched among flowering fruit trees with the scent of clear fresh mountain air, looking out to sea… All of this was ours at Villa “La Combe au Loup”

As we gathered at this beautiful villa after the end of a day of visiting magnificent art museums and seaside restaurants, it was always the best part of the day.

Villa La Combe au Loup, what a perfect place to spend a birthday or in the case of our visiting friends—a honeymoon! Each time we return is a special occasion.

Charming hideaway perched above the cote d'azure

Charming hideaway perched above the cote d'azure
  • 5 of 5
This delightful country villa is a treat for the senses. I don't know what I loved more... the orchard of fruit trees, the beautiful lap pool, the terrace for alfresco dining, fresh lavendar and rosemary everywhere, the views of neighboring hill towns, or the comfort of my bed and bathroom. Being a painter I was fascinated with how the house changed color over the course of a day. I could have happily never left the property. There is so much to see in an around Tourrettes sur Loup we did go out daily but always returned in time to cook a wonderful meal that we enjoyed on the terrace. The local produce was amazing. All in all, the location of the villa is ideal for exploring the region. I'm already dreaming of returning next year.

I've stayed in this villa twice and had a relaxing time both times. Warm sun shine, large pool, ancient olive trees, comfortable beds in naturally cool rooms, and nearby great places to eat if you want a change from the villa's relaxing enclosed bbq area. Even tried my hand at playing the piano. Definitely a place to stay.
