About Fabienne Mc Auliffe
Bonjour! we are a French/American family, My husband Kelly is from Nevada and I am born and raised in Avignon. After living in many places around the world, we came back to Provence in 1997 and decided that it was definitly our favorite life style and place. So it was easy to buy a beautiful 'fixer-upper' villa in the middle of the pine trees, and to start raising our family.We now have Thalia 6 years old, Kassidy 12, and Maeva 13. We take great pride in having a beautiful place for our guest, great decoration, history you can see (the villa is 100 years old)with all the modern facilitys to make the best vacation.If you don't speak french, we are here to help you.We love food and wine, (my husband is a wine specialist and makes memorable wine tour in the Rhône region)and we can help you for that too.
Merci et bonne journée!
Fabienne Mc Auliffe purchased this house in 2004
Why Fabienne Mc Auliffe chose Avignon
The villa Bacchus was for sale in 2000 right next to our personal villa.It was old (100 years old)and a very small typical provençal house. The fact that my husband and I studied architecture probably helped us a lot to feel like we could do it again, but this time better than our own house! My husband and I (yes I did all the tiles,and painted) worked on it for 3 years non stop, with very little help, after our part time jobs.
What makes this house unique
After the villa was done, we build a pool in the middle of the land, where the old separation wall use to be. We rent this villa all year around, and when we show it it to our new guest, we can help it to be so proud! It is more beautiful than our own villa, and our kids are asking to swich house all the time! The location is perfect and it is very peaceful. We used all noble material (stone, wood, terra cota)to build the villa and they are only getting better with time...it is truelly a timeless beautiful provencal villa!
