About Mr Barry Dixon
We are a retired married couple who love France. We live in the rural East of England and enjoy rural life both in France and the UK. We are keen sailors and have spent much time cruising from the South Coast of England to France and meeting many French friends. More recently we have enjoyed cruising the lovely Cote d'Azur. Consequently we speak good French and enjoy conversing with our French friends. We love the local cuisine in the South as well as the great variety of local Vins de Provence. We are keen cooks ourselves and enjoy trying out new recipes from all regions of France.We love entertaining and are keen to share our lovely villa with visitors from far and wide.
Mr Barry Dixon purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Mr Barry Dixon chose Le Thoronet
We found this villa after a short search of the region. It offered all the features we were looking for - a quiet position in a mainly French community, a secure and fenced terrain, a good sized pool and beautifully designed gardens, plus flexible accommodation for ourselves and our guests.
What makes this Villa unique
As we entered the electrically operated front gates and drove up the driveway to the two integral garages, we could see this was a property of some standing. However, when we walked around to the South terrace and main entrance we could hardly believe the beauty of the rose garden and pool, in a backdrop of a two tier, beautifully maintained garden, full of shrubs, fruit trees and flowers. The main South facing terrace of the villa is shaded by old spreading vines forming a leafy roof over the outside dining area, with ripening grapes as an added feature. The interior is open plan and spacious, with a high ceiling, keeping cool, even in the heat of the Southern sun by day. The pool and sunbathing area are amazing. The pool is hand built with a ceramic tile lining, creating a clear blue transparency in the water. In season, the sun warms the water to between 28C and 30C. A solar heated shower is always available for pre and post bathing rinses. A few years ago we added air conditioning to the three main bedrooms in the villa which allows us and our guests to relax in the cool during some of the very hot weather that is common in the region. We also make full use of the small vegetable garden which we plant with local vegetables every year. The apricot tree on the lower lawn is often a source of delight to those visitors who come at the end of June, into early July, when it is full of delicious fruit. Our guests are free to use any produce that is growing in season
