Description

Why not spend Christmas and New Year in the sunny Cote d'Azur in a stunning location in a medieval village?

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
