Holiday Villa Rentals in and around Tourtour
Called the 'village in the sky of Provence', Tourtour sits at 650 m of altitude overlooking much of Provence from the Gulf of Fréjus on the French Riviera, passing through the Montagne Sainte-Victoire and the Luberon, all the way to Mont Ventoux. It is considered one of the prettiest villages in France and is made up of ancient stone houses, narrow alleyways and arched passages bathed in sunlight, remains of a medieval castle, a 17th century oil mill, and a lively village square lined with olive and plane trees offering shade for the café and restaurant terraces. Besides cafés and restaurants, you will find a bakery, grocery, post office, hairdresser's, gift shop and more here. The countryside in this region offers picturesque sceneries of lavender fields, olive groves, and miles and miles of vineyards producing wines from such well-known domaines as Domaines Ott, Chateau Roubine, Chateau de Berne, and Chateau les Crostes. You can also take a day trip to the artificial Lac de Sainte-Croix lake and the Gorges du Verdon, a 25-kilometre long river canyon with turquoise water and breathtaking sceneries, which are a mere 40-minute drive away and perfect for numerous activities such as sunbathing, swimming, hiking, climbing, fishing, canoeing, rafting, and paragliding.
