We are a Swedish/American couple with an international background having lived in several countries during our 20 years together. We have 4 children and live in Sweden since 2007. Eva is a physiotherapist and Ken is a banker.Our oldest daughter attend university in USA and the other 3 still live at home.
We have always loved the south of France and have dreamed of owning a property there for as long as we can remember. This house was previously owned by a acquaintance and when we found out it was available for sale we didn´t hesitate. We wanted a large house to fit our rambling horde as well as friends and relatives. It appealed to us in so many ways, the style, atmosphere, location. Even though we love days on the beach and the bustling activity of Cannes in the high season, it is wonderful to come home to our haven of tranquillity at the end of the day. It also tends to be cooler (which is a great thing!) than at sealevel. We are sporty people and love taking long walks. The area is perfect with quiet, winding roads and breathtaking scenery. We often walk to Juan les Pins or Cannes. The house is also great in autumn, spring and winter time. We enjoy long lunches on the terrace and light a fire in the evenings and play cards.
The fact that when we enter the gates to our 'compund', we feel like we have our own oasis. The family can relax and enjoy time together whilst having the space to be alone if we want. We have had fantastic lunches and pool parties and people love visiting us as it is a welcoming feel to the house. The views from the terrace is gorgeous and in the summer we take all the meals outside. Sometimes, we don´t leave the house for days as there is plenty of space to just BE without having to go to the beach. The children can have friends staying and we can be 20 people around without feeling crowded! The poolarea is one level down from the deck and is secluded from view so you can swim and enjoy yourself without being overlooked. There is space to play boules and ping pong if you tire of laying by the pool. The garden is filled with lavender and mimosas which provides an explosion of colour and smells in the spring and summer. It is a lush and calming atmosphere all around the house.
