Tourrettes is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France.

Tourrettes is one of a series of “perched villages” overlooking the plain between the southern Alps and the Esterel massif, which borders the sea between Cannes and Saint-Raphaël. Tourrettes is a charming old Provençal village popular with tourists. The village is located on the road to Mons, which later on joins the Route Napoléon (linking Nice to Grenoble through the Alps).

In the recent years a high-standing golf resort has settled in Tourrettes : the Domaine de Terre Blanche attracting a foreign clientele.

The aerodrome of Fayence-Tourrettes was one of the most active in Europe.

 

Situated just below and a short walk from Fayence, the ancient town of Tourrettes is a popular tourist destination in the Var.  The main square has a good bar/restaurant (above) with superb views of the Bastide and down the valley.  The town hosts art exhibitions in the summer and is the perfect destination for those after a relaxing, authentic Provencal break.

Tourrettes has the best of both worlds, secluded charming and ancient little village which is a short walk to Fayence town square for the bustling market and a wide range of restaurants and bars.

As with all of the perched villages of the Var, Tourrettes stretches from the village at the top of the hill down to the valley, we have a villa in each location.
