This Tourrettes-sur-Loup villa with pool and tennis boasts spectacular views of forested hills gently sloping towards the Mediterranean Sea. Nestled on a sunny hillside on the edge of the medieval village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup, less than one mile from its boutiques and restaurants, La Licorne is a beautiful family home with pool and multi-sports court. Enjoy leisurely meals al fresco on the large dining terrace, overlooking the Cap d’Antibes and the Baie des Anges, or simply relax by the pool while the more energetic enjoy some tennis, volleyball, badminton and basketball. Within a few minutes' walk downhill (it will take longer coming back as it is uphill!) is Tourrettes-sur-Loup's bustling village centre, with a weekly Provencal market, art galleries and a wealth of craft shops and restaurants to choose from. Further afield, Vence and St-Paul-de-Vence boast a rich artistic heritage and museums linked to famed artists who lived in the area. All along the Cote d'Azur, within easy driving distance from La Licorne, you will find renowned seaside resorts, such as Cagnes-sur-Mer, featuring a yachting harbour, lovely pebble beaches, a 14th century Chateau and the house of painter August Renoir. Cap d'Antibes is another jewel of the French Riviera and a symbol of luxury living. If you are travelling with children, make sure not to miss Marineland Aquatic Park, showcasing all sorts of Mediterranean and Tropical sea life.
I would encourage you to walk from La Licorne to Tourrettes-sur-Loup to enjoy a pleasant stroll among the jewellery shops, pottery shops, art galleries and boutiques of this enchanting Medieval village. You will also enjoy nice meals in one of the local restaurants, such as Le Bistrot Gourmand Clovis, Le Médiéval, Le Bistrot Rouge, or Le Sansot. If you want to sample a typical speciality try the terrific violet-flavoured ice cream from Chez Tom! During your stay at this property, you will notice that violets are still cultivated in Tourrettes-sur-Loup and you can discover all the secrets about them by visiting La Bastide des Violettes museum.
