I was an active woman, living in Paris,and Lyon .I used to travel a lot and we decided to change our way of life for a quieter life and environment. We chose 2 nice places to live now in Provence, and often stay on the Ile de Ré as well .These are two wonderful places to stay ! 10 years ago, I looked for a natural and refined place to enjoy Provence life. We chose this region Drôme Provençale, because it is as well the South landscapes of Provence,and the green and freshness in Summer of forests,rivers and hills very close.We travel,we are open-minded and we are very satisfied by all possibilities here as well in cultural,sportive or daily life .Our family members and friends of 3 generations are very attracted as well by the region and often stay at home !
I found in love with this stone 'Mas' and its location.The warm and unique architecture of a 19th cent country house with a wide view -east onto the hills far away, south onto the cultivated fields, and west,onto the medieval village,with no neighbours to be seen except the fields. I could completely renovate it and could display rooms to have a real daily comfort. You will like walking to the village to the producers'shop and to the bakery very near.you will love the South French atmosphere in and outside.
First of all, the 'Mas' and the garden are an independent estate,with no other holiday-makers or owners living close ! It has its traditional Provence architecture with outside stone-walls.I kept all architectural old elements details,added some old furniture in a contemporary atmosphere. It is clear,cheerful . I would like you to enjoy at home this authenticity, simplicity and refinement,a way of life in South of France.I would like you,your family members and your friends to enjoy all activities and discover this marvellous and various region.
