Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I was born, in Alsace-Lorraine, moved the Paris region with my family in 1950. After having worked in Banking in Germany, real estate in South of France and run a Michelin rated Alsatian Restaurant in Paris, I moved to Santa Barbara, California, where I have spend many years in restaurant and high end catering business. I retired in 2005, and decided to spend some time in Provence, where I now have the great pleasure to accomodate my international guests at Villa Vanesse.
Why the Owner Chose Sarrians: This villa was chosen because its very special location, the size of the property, the quality of construction, and all the possibilities the floor plan was offering. We wanted to renovate the villa and create an open/american kitchen, a bathroom for each bedroom, an additional private quarter (the studio appartement) in the same building, and our priotity was a very quiet location. Having lived in cities all my live, this was the little peacefull paradise I was looking for.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The property which offers great privacy because it is tucked away on a private lane, in a very quiet residential area, is also located at walking distance to the center of the village and a main Supermarket and only 10 to 20 minutes away (by car) from major towns, Carpentras, Avignon, Orange, Gigondas, Chateauneuf du pape, L'Isle sur la sorgue. From the large second floor terrasse we can enjoy the view on the famous Mont Ventoux that was made so popular by the Tour de France.
