The House

"The fascination of the vine-growers houses"

The region was once a prosperous horticultural district with hundreds of greenhouses covering the countryside . The estate homes of these horticulturalists were built in the 1920's by the famous architect Marien. As one of the original estate homes, our house dates from this period and we have kept its authentic charm by preserving the decorative Art Nouveau features.

The imposing entrance hall has mock-marble covered walls with a patina of age, leading to a vast stairwell; the kitchen is contemporary but the tiles are period and carry a floral motif. There is a turret in the roof. The attractive garden is full of flowers and surrounded by meadows.
