We have lived for over 20 years in Provence enjoying the wonderful life that it offers. However now due to family we now spend half our year in France and half in the UK, as well as travelling to places of interest in the world, we hope you will appreciate staying at a house with all the comforts of a home.
Annie von Brockdorff purchased this farmhouse in 2012
We bought this house because of its ancient and provencal feel,it is a house that you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door but it also has a feeling of peace and tranquility whilst being only short walk from the village and a short drive away from Sea, Mountains and the cities of the Cote D'Azur
This house offers wonderful views over the vineyards and mountains in the distance whilst being only 4 minutes walk from the village with its bread shop , mini supermarket ....The Square has charming restaurants and bars, with a market that is held once a week ..Boule is played in the square by the locals whilst the house provides it's own boule court for those who wish to play......
We were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful house at the beginning of July 2014. The setting is great - an easy walk into the charming village of Villecroze for morning croissants or meals in the pretty square. And the house itself is light, spacious, very comfortable and full of character. All the rooms have been furnished, decorated and equipped to such a high standard that it is a clearly a much loved home. The sunny terraces, the pretty garden and the wonderful heated pool were an absolute delight. All in all a wonderful place for a holiday and we would love to return.
The Village of Villecroze 4 minutes walk is a charming provencal walled village with a groto and caves to visit,and a waterfall, The village has a baker and grocery store, with a market weekly on a wednesay, the square has three retaurants and bars with a village boule court and there are several other restaurants in the village
