Winifred Fortescue and her husband, Sir John Fortescue, moved to Provence in the early 1930s. There they converted an old stone farmhouse into a graceful and idyllic home—the Domaine.

For two years after Sir John’s death, Lady Fortescue, still a comparatively young woman, continued to live in the Domaine, years that were not altogether happy. Then, visiting a friend, she came across a small, near-derelict house set amidst thickets of wild lavender, magenta gladioli, and trailing sweet peas. She fell instantly in love with it, and thus began a new and happy chapter of her life.

With the help of her dear friend and neighbour, ‘Mademoiselle’, she set about trying to purchase the property from a complicated and cunning ‘Mafia’ of local Provençals—and then, once more, she began the heart-warming, frustrating, funny, and altogether delightful process of transforming a small Provençal cottage into a home and creating a breathtaking garden down the side of the mountain.

She called it SUNSET HOUSE.
