The adventure starts when you change over to one of our 4x4s at La Blache and ride down the track into our private estate.

En route, you can start to relax and be in awe of the unfolding dominant view. Nature at its best, wild yet dotted by the scalpel of the farmer's hands. Roaming sheep, wild boar, deer, natural oak forests, olive plantations, lavender, wild thyme and much more.

At the end of this 10-minute ride, you start to glimpse the red-tiled Provencal rooftops of our tiny hamlet of La Colle en Provence and have the first glimpse of your private, peaceful views from our estate.

Step back from the stress of life and concentrate on developing your life in an awe-inspiring creative place, just right for the relaxing holidays or life-changing long-term remote working families or groups.

The Mediterranean diet is admired for its healthy living properties. Mixed with Asian twists, you can explore the advantages of both.

We highly recommend purchasing local products at the market, off roadside fruit and veg cabins, local supper markets and shops.

The kitchen in the Main House is large, we are foodies and love cooking, and there are also outside cooking areas; We also have local organic lamb grown on our domain.



Straight out of the entrances is the courtyard, with its various communal points. BBQs, terrace with views, outside living and working areas. The pool is not ten metres away with its sun loungers and coliving beach.

Surrounding this is access to the park with its woods, tracks, lavender fields and prairies. We do most of our outdoor activities in the park.

Dotted about La Colle are quiet nooks set up with chairs and tables, where you can enjoy the summer breeze and create at will. (screen permitting).

We work on opening the pool for late May/June so that it can be enjoyed in the hotter months of the year and goes through to October.

It is 10.5m x 4.5m and has its own beach with plenty of relaxing sun loungers and spaces. It is a painted pool, therefore, needs quite a lot of maintenance, hence the varied opening times.


We will try and make your French Living experience as nice and fruitful as possible. We will strive to introduce you to the best sites and sounds of Provence and the French ways of enjoying life, from food to history.

Once a week there is the market, and you can enjoy the pleasures of visiting Forcalquier which is the nearest main town.
