Le Casalet (petite maison) is a beautifully renovated historic 2 bedroom maison de village set in the charming village of Tourrettes sur Loup, on the most southerly part of the ramparts offering breathtaking unobstructed views of the Mediterranean coast from both the living room and master bedroom. Because of its location high up on the ramparts, our house is not suitable for young children.

The house has been tastefully renovated, while preserving the original beams, old tile floors and antique doors and includes antique and period furniture. From the street a set of steps leads to the front door, opening onto a fully fitted upscale kitchen/dinette adjacent to a bright and light living room with 2 Juliette balconies overlooking a panoramic view.

On the lower level is the the master bedroom with king size bed (180cm), and ample cupboard space and with a beautiful view and another small Juliette balcony. Also on this level is bedroom 2 with double bed (140 cm) and cupboards. They share a superb shower room and WC. All windows have mosquito screens.

Le Casalet is an ideal “pied-a-terre” to start your tour of the surrounding area: hike in the back country, visit places of historical interest, and enjoy beaches, concurrently experiencing living in a historic village with its craft and artists shops and galleries. The village offers a large selection of cafes and restaurants, and has everything you need at your doorstep – bakers, butcher, greengrocers, pharmacy, post office, hairdresser. Every Wednesday enjoy the colourful market. Free parking a short walk away from the house.
