Why at Living Provence?

La Colle en Provence

Holiday Stay.             Team Stay.           Long Stay.

La Colle en Provence

Refreshful holidays with family and friends, weeklong team-building stays, or taking a plunge and living in highly awarded off-the-grid long-stays (Lets) are ideal for remote working families or groups.

Success allows you to do what you want, but you're not happy just doing what everyone else does.

Quality Living Provence at La Colle en Provence is the way of sharing life and work and taking refreshing breaks as holidays. You are part of a global family.

Firstly, Living Provence is based near the historic town of Forcalquier in southern French Provence. We provide a high-quality family home set in a billionaire-like vista, off the grid, in a gorgeous natural park (yet readily accessible to the world).

You will find lavender fields, olive plantations, oak forests, mountain views and every aspect of the beauties of nature that you can imagine. Starry skies, unforgettable sunrises and sunsets.

The 10-minute drive down the track means we are only twenty minutes from Forcalquier, our nearest main town and bus station. Also, we are only 25 mins from the nearest main Autoroute, which will fast-track you anywhere in Europe.

We supply 4x4s to facilitate access to the hamlet for short-term stays all year round as we have to cross pure nature on a private track, yet the trip is both exhilarating and inspiring. Long-term stays need either a long-term hire or your vehicle.

We provide private parking at our La Blache starting point, so you are welcome to bring your vehicle.


To experience this unique billionaire-like setting, you only need to decide which type of stay you would like.

Holiday rental,  Short or Long Term Stay(let) and Team building. We have several booking agents to cover the different types. When booking directly, we pay you a part of the agent's fees.
