Tourette-sur-Loup - France cities

Tourette-sur-Loup

Tourrettes sur Loup is located five kilometers west of the town of Vence, and approximately forty minutes from the Nice airport. Literally hanging off the side of a cliff, this beautiful village is well known for producing more violets than anywhere else in France. A good place to start your tour is the Grand Rue, a narrow, cobble stoned street that begins at the rear of the main square. Follow the rue as it winds its way through the lower part of town, rambling beneath ancient stone archways and past picturesque medieval buildings. At the back of the village there’s a lookout point with exceptional views of the Mediterranean. Tourrettes is full of interesting artisan shops, restaurants, and local flavor.

Visit Tourrettes and you’ll meet tourists, construction workers, shop owners, and village elders playing boules in the central square. They all add a unique charm to this picturesque town.
