We're an American family with young children. Our seven-year-old twin girls were born here and grew up in this house. Our hobbies include: exploring Provence, cycling, running and hunting for antiques and treasures at the brocantes and marches aux puces. We have lived in France for 11 years.
We fell in love with Gonfaron while on vacation and dreamed of coming back to live full time! We found our dream stone farmhouse, La Peyrardiere, in 2004 and have enjoyed the central location. We are fortunate to be able to explore nearby Aix-en-Provence, St. Tropez, Grimaud, Lorgues, Cannes, Nice, Hyeres, Frejus and many other Provencal and Côte d'Azur towns and villages.
La Peyrardiere is surrounded by vineyards on 3 sides giving it a private and peaceful feeling. There are beautiful mountain views all around. It is a tranquil escape with quintessential French atmosphere. The farmhouse is in a perfect location which allows us day trips to many of the special towns in Provence/Côte d'Azur/French Riviera.
