'Chez Fleur' - A TOUCH OF FRANCE RIGHT ON THE GULF.... a must see!

This unique French chateau sits directly on the beach at the mouth of Eastern Lake. It is an architectural treasure tastefully designed with furnishings and artwork comfortably compatible with it's French origin...

simply the most romantic beach experience on 30A! From the gated motor court entry you sense your stay in Chez Fleur will be unlike any other beach experience. The incredibly beautiful hand-hewn barn wood floors are the first thing you will notice upon entering...then the beautiful soft palette of wall colors as if Monet had been here before.

Chez Fleur has four bedrooms and four full baths on the second floor. The breath taking Master suite spans the entire gulf side with an exquisite covered porch featuring a 180 degree view of the Gulf and the dune lake....romance awaits! The bedroom is quite large and features a king bed with quality mattress set, generous closet space, flat screen TV/DVD and all original artwork. The Master bath features two sinks and a luxurious multi-headed shower with boosted water pressure...a spiritual experience. There are large bedrooms on the northeast and northwest corners with full dedicated baths (shower/tub) for each. Both bedrooms are large with generous closet space and flat screen TV, one features a king and the other a queen bed, both with high quality mattress sets. These bedrooms would be considered 'masters' in most beach rentals based on their size and appointment. The fourth bedroom is smaller with a double bed, armoire, chest of drawers and flat screen TV...this bedroom is very comfortable for a single adult or two young children. The dedicated full bath for this bedroom is across the BR door. ALL bedrooms have generous views of the beach. The upstairs design of the house provides a quaint, but large space for reading and board games easily accommodating 4-6 participants.

The first floor features a breath taking entry way from which one can view straight through the chateau to the beach and gulf. During temperate climates you will want to leave open the front door and the south side French doors leading to the beach to allow soft cool breezes to flow through...an incredible experience indeed! The EXTREMELY well-equipped kitchen, dining room, den area, laundry and half bath are also on this level. The den features comfortable seating, large flat screen TV/DVD with enhanced sound, Sonos audio system and a wood burning fire place. The original hand crafted dining table seats 8 with china, stem ware, etc for more. There are two courtyards centrally located on the east and west side of the villa. The western courtyard is the REQUIRED ENTY WAY TO AND FROM THE BEACH. It has a convenient shower/hose station for removing sand before re-entry (through laundry door ONLY) to the villa. The western courtyard also features a spa tub with jets (4-6 capacity). The eastern courtyard features a 17th century water fountain, outdoor breakfast seating and a large deluxe natural gas grill (Weber)...PLEASE clean after use. You will find the first floor covered porch to be the 'favorite' place to be at Chez Fleur. Many of our guests say there is no need to venture further once you relax in the cushioned teak chairs, quietly secluded with a book and libation....or just visiting with family and friends. This porch comfortably seats 8 and has an old teak dining table for any meal, including a romantic evening dinner under the stars. The second floor porch has cushioned chaise loungers for napping. Your stroll to the beach down your private boardwalk (wear your sandals to avoid splinters!) will NOT entail lugging stuff up and down stairs because Chez Fleur sits just a few feet above sea level. This makes beach trips very easy on older adults...a feature rarely found on 30a.

Chez Fleur is located in Seagrove Beach 4 blocks south of 30a in a less populated area, ~2 miles east of Seaside and ~4 miles west of Rosemary. It is biking or walking distance from many of the area's best restaurants/bistro's, such as Café 30a, Whisky Bravo, Old Florida Fishhouse, George's, Angelina's, The 'V', as well as those actually in Rosemary and Seaside where the crowds gather. Goatfeathers (30a's best fresh seafood market) is less than a mile away....so why go fight the crowds when you have the best kitchen/grill set-up on the beach!! Rentals for biking, kayaking, fishing and stand-up paddle boards are within a half mile. Santa Rosa Golf Club is an excellent 18 hole layout with Gulf views and very reasonable rates and is located just 20-25 minutes west on 30a.

Most of the artwork and artisan work is original by artists and artisans from France, Morocco and St. Bart's. Many of the pieces are quite old and/or delicate. As you would expect, this aesthetically comfortable chateau is well suited for mature adults. Infants and WELL-BEHAVED children are welcome. We will NOT rent to parties hosting weddings, graduations, reunions or similar celebratory occasions. Chez Fleur is an ideal spot for your anniversary, honeymoon, multi-generation family vacations, retired friends vacations and mature adult vacations. YES, we are picky because this is a very special place. The villa's caretaker (Joe) will check on our guests to assure their needs are being met and they represented themselves honestly at booking. Booking rates are listed on this site. PLEASE do not request discounts during Summer Season. Short and long stays (less/more than 7 nts) will be considered on a case by case basis.

Thank you for looking,

Tom & Loretta Flowers

Columbus, Ga.

Words do not due justice to the comfortable elegance of Chez Fleur...it is like a trip to Provence Cote-d'Azur yet with the sugar white sands and teal gulf waters of the Gulf replacing the Mediterranean...at several $$$$'s less

About the Owner

We are from Columbus, Georgia and have always enjoyed going to the Gulf of Mexico for the beach. We purchased Chez Fleur in 2013 and plan to SELECTIVELY rent it out for 2 more years at which time we will take it off the market. We are approaching retirement, have three grown daughters, and look forward to spending family time ourselves at Chez Fleur.

We enjoyed our stay here--
This home is lovely-- beautifully decorated and so very comfortable and peaceful. The pictures, while accurate, don't do the house justice!
Beach access is excellent--flat boardwalk!
Very close to good restaurants and shopping.

Location

From the Owner

The unique architectural beauty of this home first attracted us. It is certainly not your typical beach home. The French (Provence) character of the home makes it very special. We feel like we are in the South of France without having to get on a plane. The simple but elegant décor (and comfort), much of which we acquired with the villa, allow our guests to TRULY get away from wherever they spend every other day. A vacation at the beach will never be the same.

Amenities

From the Owner

The front porches...you may never venture further...but if you do it's a easy stairless stroll down your private boardwalk to the sugar white sands of Seagrove beach and the warm waters of the Gulf. Just make sure you come back into the villa through the 'Blue Door' and wash your feet before entering:)
