La-Colle-sur-Loup is a pretty Medieval village just down the road from the more famous Saint-Paul-de-Vence. It's much more tranquil, retaining a quiet charm that makes a wander around very pleasant.
Across the main road from the village there is a 12th century abbey that now houses a rather fabulous hotel and restaurant. You’ll find the tourist office on the roundabout at the entrance to the village, with the 17th century Eglise de Saint Jacque right opposite. If you want to take a wander round La-Colle-Sur-Loup and check out all the historic landmarks then make sure you call into the tourist office first for a map, the village isn’t touristy enough to have put up signs up everywhere.
The Loup river is one of the main features of the village (about a kilometre to the west) and offers refreshment during the hot summer months; the river also has two lovely public parks along the banks with play and picnic areas.
