A Moorish villa in France built by a Swiss architect with Moroccan vibes

Posted on Sun, 15 Oct 2023 by KiM

Built in 1894 by Swiss architect Paul Page in the style of a Moorish villa, this home in south-eastern France is secluded amidst lush gardens and was home to architect and decorator Frédéric Méchiche (who passed away in 2021 from COVID). I would have guessed this was located in Morocco not France but either way it is an exquisite escape and absolutely stunning inside and out. I am in love with every bit of it – the arches, dome-shaped ceilings, tile roof, chequered cement tile floors, a winter garden room, 3 reception rooms, an annex for guests, a roof terrace, a pool and gardens that are to die for. For sale for €2,185,000 via Patrice Besse.

This exquiste Mechiche paradise has been my screensaver for years. Believe me, I would write the check if I could and be happy ever after!
