We have a very specific purpose and target group. Briefly worded: Silence, peace and enjoyment.
Not unusual you might say, but that is why we’ve decided to rent only 2 guest rooms with all the necessary luxury. The following 2 formats are possible:
The two formats can not be combined, so that the maximum total capacity is 7 persons. During July and August only the lodging will be available.
The atmosphere of the area lends itself to simply do nothing and invites you to enjoy the peace and nature. This aim is the reason why the location of Chambre d' hôtes is not suitable for children below the age of 12 years. This serves to ensure the other guests are 100% able to benefit from privateness and placidity.
We want to offer our guests the chance to relax with a book or something else, in peace. Here you should be able to relax and enjoy. For instance, many of our guests come here to see houses and want to talk about it in the evening. But some guests, with or without children, come here to talk and spend time together.
The southern oriented Provencal house dates from 1991. It was built on a sloping area and in the previous centuries it functioned as olive and fruit grove. The profiling with terraces is still largely intact or has been restored in its original state the last few years. Many old olive trees were renovated and new ones were planted so that today, approximately 90 olive trees are present.
The house is surrounded by more than 120 m² of outside terrace. These terraces offer a view on the pool with landscaped garden and the Provencal countryside with its natural vegetation.
The contemporary home has been purchased in 2003 in good condition. The outside area was in poor condition but we’ve accepted the challenge to build a piece of paradise. In our past lives, our activities included landscape architecture and interior decoration. In this project, we made use of these skills for a 100%. The house was largely rebuilt in 2008-2010 under architecture with the aim of creating a luxury chambres d'hôtes.
To offer our guests the maximum of comfort and peace we opted for only 2 guest rooms with limited capacity. Format chambres d'hôtes: A charm of a luxury room on the ground floor for 2 or 3 persons (29 m²). Another guest room on the first floor (2+2 - 41 m²), two linked luxury rooms, for a family with 2 children or two friendly couples. Capacity of 4 persons.
All this guest rooms can also be booked together in the Format gîte. In this case, the 3 guest rooms and a kitchen are available. This is a separate section of the house (154 m²) in complete privacy with a maximum capacity of 6 persons.
Heritage (separate guest house). With this formula you will stay in a unique oak building (luxury lodge) with fully seperated in a restored ancient olive grove in complete privacy. Equipped with all modern comfort with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen and private terrace. For those who want to enjoy complete independence of the domain, this formula is an excellent alternative with access to the pool and garden.
