Great People
and Good Testimonials

“I moved to Ste. Genevieve from Dallas in 2005. It was the best decision I ever made. Ste. Genevieve is the happiest living environment one could imagine: great people, great morals, beautiful scenery, terrific home values, great schools, great restaurants, the wine country, no crime, plenty of activities – and Plaza Frontenac less than one hour away. It’s the best of both city and country living, and the ideal spot for the new America. I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I feel genuinely sorry for those who do not live here”.
