Notre maison

Our home is a renovated, four-story, village house in a small village in the heart of Provencal wine country. It was built into a limestone cliff which is exposed in part of the kitchen. There is large private rooftop terrace with a summer kitchen, barbecue and lovely views of the perched village of Carces and the river just across the street. The interior walls are natural exposed stone on two of the floors. The salon has a working fireplace with a large 18th century back plate. There are two double bedrooms, two baths- one with a toilet- and two WCs. The house is equipped with an ADSL Wi-Fi network and internet TV. The main kitchen has just been renovated and is 'gourmet' equipped.

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. We have been married for 35 years and have no children. I am 64 and my wife is 57. We are both retired chemists that have lived abroad for 25 years, the last 12 in the south of France. Our interests tend to the outdoors, sailing, windsurfing, skiing, hiking, etc. Lately however we have been spending a good deal of time indoors renovating our kitchen. We also enjoy good food and wine and search out the best ingredients in the local markets. A couple times a year we drive to Italy (about 2 hrs.) for lunch and to stock up on Italian goodies.





The charming village of Carces dates back to the 12th century and much of the old central buildings have been renovated. The area around the village is covered in vineyards with many wine makers located in and around the village; tasting rooms abound. There is a year round street market every Saturday where one can buy great local produce often directly from local producers. The local supermarket has a very good butcher and also sells fresh fish. This being France and Provence in particular, good restaurants are abundant. Other villages in the area are well worth the short trip. Cotignac has a lovely café lined central square, and Correns was one of the first villages to be designated organic because everything grown in the commune including the wine must be certified organic. The beaches of the Med coast are about 1-1.5 hours by car. The grand Gorge du Verdon is about the same distance in the other direction and well worth the trip. All in all there is much to do indoors and out.
