Between the sandy banks of the Mokelumne River and a quiet paved way lined with blossoming oleander bushes, there is a French country home that is more of a fairytale chateau than Acampo norm. The narrow, deceptive driveway leads to a wide-open lawn, bright green and meticulously manicured. A gallery resembling a small cottage sits at the edge of Lodi winegrapes, surrounded by clipped hedges and purple and green trees.

Inside the main house, a three-tier fountain echoes gently through the window-lined room. The walls are dark wood, and in some places, carved or enhanced with wrought iron or orange brick. Shelves and decorative columns display handcarved statues made of bronze and terra cotta.
