This house, in Aix-en-Provence, took my breath away. It’s never encouraging when, instead of a dollar amount, Sotheby’s lists “Price Upon Request” but I am not letting that deter me. I must have this house.
The inside is less impressive than the grounds — a whopping 400 acres of finely manicured French countryside are yours for the wandering once you hand over a few million euros (and I’m being conservative with that estimate). I know life is all about being happy where you are and with what you have, but come on, did you guys see that canopy of vines over the outdoor dining area? I could be happy here. All that French ivy and those pale shutters? I’d move in and make the whole third floor my writing wing. What do you like the most? And who wants to indulge me and pretend this palace is anywhere near my budget?
