                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My husband and I have been spending our holidays in the south of France since we left school and a huge love of the area grew from this. We live in the south east of England with our two children.

                      Why the Owner Chose Aups:
                      We bought a property in the region we love close to the fantastic Lac du St Croix which always takes our breath away when we see it for the first time on a visit - it is such a special colour. We enjoy family holidays at the villa with our children, their cousins, their friends and ours.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      We fell in love with the location of the property, it is so peaceful and secluded. During the day we enjoy relaxing on the sun terrace and at night there is a fantastic view of the stars and it is so special to sit out on the covered terrace with family and friends enjoying the warm evening and a glass or two of the local wine.
