Your host is an entrepreneur in the arts who has spent the last 40 years traveling internationally for business. While his stateside base is most often New York City, he has taken every opportunity in his travels to seek refuge in quaint European villages. His appreciation of these historic havens was a great part of the inspiration for Lis Sur Mer.
Lis Sur Mer was originally an exclusive family compound and retreat until 15 years ago when he began opening it up to visitors. With Lis Sur Mer he has created a storybook compound renowned for its privacy, romance and renewal. Built from the fruits of the sea and recycled building of past centuries, inspired in part by the concept of the famous artist dune shacks of Provincetown, the aesthetic is a French fishing village mated with Old Cape Cod. Visiting Lis Sur Mer is an adventure in escaping modern frenzy and McMansions, getting back to the basic joy of natural beauty with extraordinary gardens, awe at every vista, and total cultural refuge. At the same time high speed internet and HD TV quietly co-exist. There is no place on Cape Cod like Lis Sur Mer. The word most often used to describe Lis Sur Mer is “magical” … Bring your inner artist.
