My father and uncle built a home here about 40 years ago, and my family and I spend every summer sunning by the pool, watching the Tour de France pass by, and walking to the market for fresh French melons and baguettes. We go to Saint-Paul-de-Vence to visit the Fondation Maeght. I love indulging in our favorite dishes at La Colombe d’Or; they have a fabulous loup de mer and the lemon sorbet is a must. The restaurant is part of a charming hotel that houses some of the most beautiful original Picassos you’ve ever seen (he used to be a regular there). There are very few tourists in Tourrettes-Sur-Loup, and the locals are welcoming to home-owners. It’s a charming, lazy, and mellow place where you can really let go and just relax. I have no schedule while I’m there, so I completely unwind. I swear the scent of French lavender is intoxicating too. Happy days.
