(3 - C) The Skylark

The Skylark


This is the our 'Troglogite' - a guest home in a cave!  It is a majestic space, with three entrances from the courtyard.  The main entrance opens up to a large living space with several alcoves, where we have dining, office, den and two day beds that give you an extra sleeping area.  There are doors also into the kitchen and the bedroom; all of the spaces are connected by interior doors too.  

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full refrigerator, two electric burners and a combined mircrowave/traditional oven.  There is a dishwasher in the apartment, the clothes washer and dryer are in a separate room on the property.

Please note that our "Skylark" is built in a series of connected caves - it is not a traditional house.  While it remains delightfully cool all summer, and is heated in the winter, there is some work required to control the temperature and humidity - you will have to adjust heaters and dehumidifiers, we will give full instructions for their operation.

About Me

My photo
Frankly, I never thought I'd end up living in Paris but - you see, I met a man. On a ski trip - Alps - chalet - fireplace - well, it's been twenty years. I can't give you the complete insider's guide to Paris yet, (I believe that takes three generations) but I can give you an ex-New Yorker's guide to this fabulous City of Lights. Our first studio was my husbands - that's where we lived once we decided to share a continent. We were there until our son was about negative-one-month old, and we didn't want to have to convert the bidet into a bassinet. Once we moved, I started renting out that apartment and everything fell into place. As an architect, I love fixing up the apartments, and as an ex-pat, I love meeting the people who come to enjoy their vacations in Paris. Now, we’ve also bought a property in the Loire Valley, and have just finished renovating that into several fabulous vacation homes – one of them is in a cave! You’ve got to see the pictures, it is a wonderful place – and the location is perfect for exploring the region – the chateaux, the wine, the scenery, it’s beautiful.
