About Sophie MacLean

We have owned our beautiful house in Marsanne for over 20 years, and during this time we have refurbished it completely and turned it into a much loved home. We have been coming here since our children were tiny and now even as teenagers and young adults, this is always a firm favourite!

Sophie MacLean purchased this villa in 1991

Why Sophie MacLean chose Drome Provencale

This is fantastic holiday house which we have owned for 24 years. The house is situated in a beautiful area, perfectly located for discovering more of Provence, the Ardeche and the Vercors regions. It is a perfect holiday house for doing lots or very little beyond sitting by the pool. Stunning views, great walking, 3 fantastic restaurants in the local village, and wonderful provencal markets galore . We have spent many happy summers here and hope you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic holiday. All the family loved your beautiful house, pool, garden, views. I was thrashed by both sons at table tennis. Thank you very much for providing such an idyllic setting for what will be a memorable holiday. As a family holiday location, for all ages, it was absolutely perfect.
