Forty-five years ago we stayed in Tourrettes and were overjoyed with our stay here. The spacious residence is located along the village's outer east wall. We watched the sun rise in the mornings from the terraces. The house comfortably accommodates 3 couples. The kitchen is well suited to cooking although with so much good food in Tourrettes and nearby we didn't find that necessary. Each night we walked through the quiet, stone-paved, pedestrian streets back to the comfort of the house. We hope to return again.
We enjoyed our stay in Saint Jeannet which is a charming medieval town. The view form the kitchen window all the way down to the Mediterranean was memorable. The house is unique in that it was once a wine cellar for the bigger house and you see evidence of the bedrock within the house. It is well equipped. It made a great home base to visit many of the adjacent hill towns. We also took day trips to Nice, the Picasso museum in the Antibbes, to Eze and spent one night in Avignon. The weather in April was cool and pleasant and we had sunny days with a few rainy nights. Saint Jeannet has a little grocery story, a couple of bakeries, a butcher, and a bar/restaurant with a stunning view. Saint Jeannet has a dramatic location with the craggy Baou towering over the town. For those unfamiliar with small hill towns, please rent the smallest car you can, as driving within the narrow streets of the old town is a challenge. Park in the public lots at the edge of town. There is parking near the house, but while we were there construction work on the access road made it not easy to use.
