House in Mill Valley, USA

We are looking for a house in southern France, ideally on or near water. We live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco, six km from the Golden Gate Bridge and close to many water venues. The town of Mill Valley is charming, with many shops, restaurants, movie theater, bookstore, gourmet grocery stores, tennis courts, parks and playgrounds.
Our home is situated on a ridge top with views of the Pacific Ocean from one side, the San Francisco Bay (Alcatraz, Angel Island, etc. ) from the opposite side, and Mt Tamalpais from the north, with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area bordering the house on the south. The house has 2300 sq ft, with many large windows and spectacular views of the Bay, mountains, or ocean from all but one room; it also has a large deck and hot tub, a separate small cabin perched on the ridge with views of the Pacific, and another cabin on the east side of the house with views of the Bay. There is a large new master suite with bath, shower and tub, and dressing area; guest bedroom and bath; and additional sleeping space in two loft areas and in the cabins. There is also a living room with fireplace, sun room next to the deck, and dining area.
Our property overlooks Muir Woods (1 km) and borders the wilderness area called the Golden Gate National Recreation Area which has dozens of hiking trails up the mountain and down to the sea. Several beaches are nearby for swimming and surfing. A bus to the beach stops at our driveway. Internationally renowned Napa Valley and other wine/vineyard areas are a one-hour drive away for unforgettable wine-tasting. Within 30 minutes, you can drive to any location in San Francisco.
We are both retired educators in our 70's who love to travel.  John has his Ph.D from Berkeley and worked on research and curriculum writing projects.  Sanna has her Ed.D from Harvard and worked with non-profits on public school reform.  We have 2 grown children who have young families of their own.
