About twenty minutes of the Verdon Gorges and Lake St. Croix, near Aups, Tourtour is a typical village of Provence, well restored and maintained. The main square, cozy and shaded, is always busy as tourists, even in winter, like to walk there. Each lane has traditional houses of great elegance. Most are restored with a clear commitment to respect the character of this village, and the result is truly successful.

Tourtour, village dans le cielAround the village, water is present in source form (the main source is called the Holy Rosary), and it has no fewer than eight fountains! This is not only refreshing, but it adds to the song of the running water, which is not for nothing in charm Tourtour.

Take time to cool off the main square of the village, or wander the streets exploring the shops located there. You also can visit an oil mill still in operation and a very interesting Museum of Fossils.

Tourtour, this village in medieval style is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful village in Provence, and probably France.
