What a find! This B&B is wonderful! It took hours of internet searching to find something that ticked all of our boxes, and this B&B fulfilled all our criteria. Tourrette sur loup is a pretty picturesque village perched on the hill side. The village is quaint, charming and historical. I fell in love with it and this whole area of the south of france.
At Le Mas des Cigales, we stayed in the lavender room. There was an ensuite bathroom, and mini bar in the room. It was such a pretty room and very comfortable. Breakfast was in abundance (boiled eggs, bread, cheese, yoghurts, juice, tea, coffee etc) and service was remarkable and always with a cheery smile.
There was a lovely swimming pool, as well as tennis courts and beautiful garden. I think there was also a sauna but we didn't use this. The views from the B&B are lovely. I would whole heartedly recommend this place and would definitely visit here again should we be in the area.
In Tourrettes sur Loup itself, there is a post office, restaurants, market in the square (I can't remember which days), butchers, bakers, grocers etc. The B&B wasn't too easy to find so do print off directions/maps to help you out. The B&B is located about 1/2 mile from the centre of Tourrettes Sur Loup.
My husband and I like to be immersed in culture when we go on holiday and this was definitely a place we enjoyed and we were constantly agog by the beautiful scenery of the whole area, it is so beautiful. Driving conditions are for the brave/experienced as it is mountainous driving with narrow windy roads. The nearest town to Tourrettes is Vence where we stocked up on our supplies (food, water etc) at a cheaper price than in Tourrette itself. Nearby is the gorge du loup which is so lovely (mountains, ravines, waterfalls), and we also went on a drive to Lac de St Croix, along the Gorge de Verdon (Europe's grand canyon) which was breathtaking. Once you get to the Lac de St Croix have your swimming gear ready for the beautiful turqoise fresh water lake as you can go for a swim, take a canoe or pedalo into the mouth of the grand canyon. It is a long drive to get there from Tourretes but the views are amazing and the pretty villages you drive by are so beautiful. I was constantly clicking with my camera and awwed every moment. We used the B&B as a base to explore from, and visited all over: Monaco, Menton, Nice, Antibes, St Tropez, Cannes, etc and had an amazing holiday overall. We also went inland and visited the most wonderful and picturesque villages. We took a traveller's guide book with us which pointed us to the nice places to visit which ended up being particularly well thumbed and dog eared by the end of the holiday.
This place is on my list of places to return and visit (particularly the restaurant in Tourrettes that had the most delicious crepes!).
