Our provençal home

 

Striking colors, flavors and scents make our corner of Provence unforgettable. Hike the hills of the Luberon, shop handmade and antique wares, and experience markets full of fresh, local foods. Savor flavors that will take your breath away: visit olive oil artisans, sample local goat cheese, and sip a glass in vineyards that tell the story of Ansouis. Enjoy a café crème and friendly chat in a cozy neighborhood café.


Featured in the French magazine Maison et Décors, our home is an official historic monument. After the French revolution, Ansouis remained loyal to the royalty, however, our home was the furtive meeting place and headquarters of those who supported the new République.

Warmth, charm, and comfort

Relax in sumptuous sofas and chairs from Roche Bobois in front of a seven-foot wood burning fireplace.

Tucked in a petit coin just off the living room is a spectacular three-story open atrium now featuring a dramatic fountain and plenty of seating for sunrise coffee and petit déjeuner or a glass of cool rosé under the stars. Here a gas BBQ is ready for your en plein air meals and grillades.
