Brief: the landscaping and planting had to be present and beautiful all year round

David Price Design has completed the ultimate South of France party house for a British financier client. The newly built 600 square metre home and pool has been designed to the exacting standards of the client, who was looking for the perfect CÔte d’Azur location to entertain his family and friends.

Visitors arrive via a long, curved drive, establishing a full and impressive view of the property’s main faÇade. The drive is lined with lavender, as well as olive trees and kumquat trees in pots. David created all the hard landscaping and worked with planting consultant Francois Chassigneux of Corporandy on the extensive brief for the planting to get the plants just right, providing a year-round presence. It is dominated by white roses and star jasmine, as well as other white flowering plants and simple, local plants which thrive in this climate.

David also created a tri-partite water feature, located parallel to the dining area. Water runs from three steel spouts set within panels of grey and white mosaic.

Finally, the generously-proportioned pool, with wide steps at either end, features a lap pool and dividing wall just beneath the surface at one end, creating a safe and shallow area for children, as per the client’s wishes.
