Designed by Boom Town every room inspires you with an array of vivacious colors exquisite textures and a snug ambiance that is never lost despite the creatively playful touches.

The lot that the home occupies is situated on the upper hills of Les Issambres Cotes D’Azure and it is the unique topography of the site that determined its final silhouette and orientation. A sloping terrain forced the architects to adopt a step-like design for the luxury villa with the street façade offering complete privacy.
