Dr. Luc / La Sauvageonne purchased this villa in 1998

Why Dr. Luc / La Sauvageonne chose Grand Sud

All happened with La Sauvageonne ( in english , literally " the unspoiled house" ) in a twist of fate in winter 1997 ; while getting out of my french clinic in AIx en Provence for lunch break , I find a small add in a free real estate magazine showing just an infinite pool and a view of an exquisite provencal outdoor kitchen; despite the poor quality of the pic, I never felt before that feeling of serenity by just looking at a house pic; Price was far to high for my financial capacities at that time but I contacted the real estate agent for immediate visit on the next day but since she was busy and me flying back to Abu Dhabi, visit was post-ponded to my next return to France. Since I had a friendly conversation over the phone with the broker ,she was nice, knowing I wont be back for months to let me know that owner has dropped down the price twice since my call for a quick sale ; I made the crazy decision to buy the house on feelings without having a chance to visit it ; IT WAS AN EMOTIONAL DECISION that I wont ever regret in my life ; the price of this house now has become definitely out of my financial resources .

I return generally twice a year ( not enough ) to La Sauvageonne that I renovated since purchase during 7 years to become a unique gem reflecting a perfect example of " THE ART OF LIVING IN PROVENCE "

Surrounded by numerous hills of pines, and overlooking the famous " Montagne Sainte Victoire “, painted by Money, this exceptional house is the most peaceful and serene retreat you coud dream off; At La Sauvageonne, exquisite moments of happinness are only timed by the position of the sun. CARPE DIEM !
