Luce refers to his small farm, or fermette, as Sous Bois, a terroir designation for wines with an earthy nose as well as a genre of landscape painting depicting woodland scenes. "Literally, it means a shady, woodsy place," he says. His emblem for the house, added to stationery and as sculpture to the gardens he planted on the hillsides, is a snail. The world associates escargot with good eating, but for Luce snails signify the slow, deliberate pace of life the French embrace, which he discovered living here.Set high on a walled terrace with its back to a forested ridge, Sous Bois has four-foot-thick, dry-stack limestone walls. Three rooms on the first floor date to the 15th century. The second story, which Luce turned into a master bedroom suite, was added 300 years later. He describes the original interior wall plaster as "brut, unrefined and honest." Over time, hearth fires in the house's single fireplace blackened the ceiling beams and darkened the living room.The living area retains its original 15th-century stonework. French 19th-century cupboard, pottery, and commode. Sofa, Sofa Company. English 19th-century trunk (used as a coffee table).

Antique French fauteuil in Colefax and Fowler fabric. French 19th-century lantern and ladder-back chairs. Vintage coffee table.
