La Colle-sur-Loup, French Riviera, France

We visited another town, which has "sur Loup" in its name, which means it lies on the river Loup. La Colle-sur-Loup is the town where we arrived. It's located on the Côte d'Azur next to the towns of Le Bar-sur-Loup and Tourrettes-sur-Loup, among olive, fig and grape groves. Plants of the perfume industry grow here, i.e. all kinds of roses, jasmine, etc. Saint-Paul-de-Vence is also nearby.

Parking in La Colle-sur-Loup

We park the car on the south side of the town, at Boulevard Honoré Teisseire, on a medium-sized parking lot (P1; GPS: 43.686393, 7.102893). You can also use another parking lot on the west side (P2; GPS: 43.686818, 7.100046).

Strolling La Colle-sur-Loup

We parked the car at Boulevard Honoré Teisseire. Opposite the parking lot we see the nearby Hôtel L'Abbaye, a 3-star tourist hotel, which was originally a monastery (Abbaye du Canadel) built in the 10th century (A; GPS: 43.685746, 7.103064). From the parking lot we are very close to the very center of the town. The center includes the Rue Georges Clemenceau street. Walking this street from west to east we pass the pretty Place Charles de Gaulle (B; GPS: 43.687455, 7.103352), where are located the public library and the La Fontaine restaurant (named because of the small fountain located in the square - or is it rather a tap with water? 😉). Then we turn onto Avenue Maréchal Foch and after about 150 meters we reach the Saint Jacques (St. Jacob) church from the end of the 16th century (C; GPS: 43.686755, 7.105624).
