The site

Nesting at the edge of a small forest, the house commands a seven-acre discreetly landscaped estate where several paths meander through fields and woods.

In front of the terrace comes the pétanque playing field next to the picnic area. Below the vegetable garden and beyond the campfire site, the field unfolds its innumerable wild flowers.

A path leads down to the brook and, over the stone-bridge, to the pond and the beach with its Japanese pavilion. Further, behind the water-lily garden, another summer pavilion welcomes solitude seekers.
