Located 50km from the beaches, and situated next to the Saint-Cassien lake, our residence Les Bastides de Fayence perches in the gorgeous village of Tourrettes. This small village is centered around the clock square, with little cobbled streets leading off to brasseries and tabacs.
A clifftop village of the Pays de Fayence, Tourrettes offers charming holidays of walking and exploring the local area. Take in the views of the Maures and Esterel mountains, and for exploring further afield, the villages of Fayence, Callian, and Seillans make for charming days out and the village of Seillans is reputed to be France’s prettiest village!
Make no mistake, Tourrettes is not a lively destination. Water parks, shopping malls and restaurant chains are just not seen in this area of France, however, if what you enjoy is peaceful holidaying with plenty of walking, and beautiful sights to see, peppered with delicious rustic meals al fresco, and pretty villages to visit nearby, this is a lovely destination.
As well as visiting the nearby villages, Tourrettes offers open markets. In Fayence (1km), market days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The caves of Saint-Cezaire are just 9km away and offer a fascination insight into our underworld, and the Jardin de la Villa Fort de France is a beautiful garden to visit, just 18km from Tourrettes.
