  • Easy living

    The view from the bedroom. I could get used to this.


  • The violet hold

    The village Tourrettes-sur-Loup is placed upon a hill surrounded by ramparts, offering stunning views of the landscape while protecting the sacred ice cream.


  • Turn of the centuries

    The charming village features narrow medieval streets with beautifully vaulted passage-ways.


  • The ice cream is my guidance

    The village is nicknamed 'Cité des Violettes' as the flower has been grown here for a century. Violet stuff can be seen everywhere and they are well-known for the violet sweets. I just couldn't resist trying the glace violette et sa fleur cristallisée, which is violet ice cream with a violet caramel on top.

  • Village people

    Despite the name of the town there are unfortunately no wolves running around shouting profanities.

  • Kroxelikrax

    This town had a lot of strange decorations in their numerous roundabouts, but this one was by far the largest.


  • Arbeit

    Another hard day of work.

  • What a scorcher


  • Nights in blue

    The palm tree was home to a family of rodents.


  • Lazy afternoon


  • None shall pass

    The 10th century city walls are amazing.


  • Sunset boulevard

    One of many premium Côte d’Azur locations for sunsets.
