Rue Roger Maurice, Villecroze - Villecroze is a Charming Provencal Village
Our village house in Villecroze was built around 1790 along the perimeter of the “vieux village” that dates back to medieval times. The front of the house faces the old village and the rear of the house has beautiful views over the countryside. The house has been totally restored over the last few years under the direction of a local architect and all the original architectural features have remained intact.
Villecroze is a charming small village nestled in the heart of the green and luscious countryside of the Haut Var region of the Cote d’Azur. Villecroze is noted for its grotto where a waterfall drops over the face of limestone cliffs in which ancient caves were fortified by a local lord during the XVI century to be used a refuge against military attacks.

About the Owner
We live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area where our children attend Lycee Francais de San Francisco. We love the small villages of Provence and Villecroze is among the most beautiful villages in the area.

The studio apartment was ideally located within an hors drive to the coast and near to many local markets. Villecroze was very pretty. The studio was well equipped although the sofa bed was slightly uncomfortable for two adults if spending more than a few days there. In conclusion we would not hesitate in returning and hope to do so again soon.
From the Owner
“We bought our village house in 2001. The house was built in the late 1700s and is located on the perimeter of the old village at the base of the stairs that lead to the old village. The back of the house overlooks a beautiful park and the countryside with olive trees and vineyards. The house is actually two villages houses that were combined and we converted the upper three floors of the "uphill" house into two charming apartments. It was quite a project! The studio apartment occupies one full floor of the house on the second level and the duplex apartment occupies two full floors of the house on the third and fourth levels. Both apartments have accessed by an inner staircase and have private entrances. The apartments have full kitchens, laundry, and large windows with shutters.”
