Our Story

"Our dream started 20 years ago, when we always travelled to the South of France for the month of September."


For ten years we rented our favourite apartment in Villefranche Sur Mer, lapping up the beaches, food, day-trips to Italy, and the extraordinarily wide cultural variety of France all a stone's throw away. But soon we realised that so much more was possible - all of this and more - a home away from home.

This reached a peak in 2004 when we began our earnest search for the perfect property to match our criteria. It needed to comfortably accomodate a large family, yes, but how could it be symbolic of everything on offer that we so loved? Well, have you seen Villa Clara's view? No wonder we fell so deeply in love with it after looking at hundreds of properties over a two-year period. In December 2005 our dream became a reality, and we are soon to celebrate ten years as the proud owners of Villa Clara.

2007 saw us add our beautiful apartment Chez Claude in Paris. Named for the much-loved "Pa" of our family who fought to liberate Paris in the Second World War, Chez Claude is the dream Parisian apartment - combining an elegant fit-out with the best of Parisian culture on your doorstep. We have to pinch ourselves every time we sit in the window with a coffee, watching the booksellers working with Notre Dame as a back-drop.

Rounding it out, we bought our beautiful seven-bedroom Orlando villa on Highlands Reserve Golf and Country Club, Sterling on Highlands, in 2011. Now we can break our long journey from New Zealand to France by stopping off for some warmth, theme parks and great golf!

Chez Claude is located on the waterfront of the Seine (Quai des Grands Augustins), viewing directly to Notre Dame in the sixth Arrondissement. If you want to live like a real Parisian then the sixth, with its antique shops, cafes and designer shops, is one of the most sought-after areas in Paris.

It’s also a wonderful place to "people-watch." Watch the book sellers, watch the bateau mouche and sometimes there’s nothing better than to sit for a few minutes at the tall windows with a superb coffee and just watch the world go by!

Recently renovated and immaculately furnished, Chez Claude is a comfortable and appropriately elegant hub from which to experience the best of Parisian culture.
