About Thierry and Marie

We are a French family, who have been living abroad for over 20 years.

This is our family home.

Thierry and Marie purchased this villa in 2017

Why Thierry and Marie chose Moustiers-Sainte-Marie

After 5 years of searching in southern France for place combining:

- a sunny climate, but not scorching sun, as can occur in Luberon and south Provence

- nautical and numerous outdoor activities for all ages of the family

- ample private space but not too far from civilization and good food

- a beautiful environment,

we found this rare property, which fulfilled all these conditions.

A magical place, really.

What makes this villa unique

Old Bastide with 40cm wide walls, recently renovated to the highest standards (double glazing windows and sliding doors, Gaggenau island kitchen, winter electric floor heating....).

Pool 10x5 metres, with sun lounge surrounded by a private Provence Vale

Mountain stream including falls and rock-pools,

5 minutes from the huge emerald lake of Sainte-Croix, the Verdon river and from the charming

village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie with all amenities and many good restaurants.

15 minutes from the famous Lavender fields of Valensole

Family hiking on the property with toddlers and small children, in addition to numerous hiking and biking trails of all levels around the lake and the gorges with elder children and adults.

Sunset aperitif in your own little valley, gazing at the changing colors on the sides of the Vale.

A unique settings.
