Why at Liveing Provence?

La Colle en Provence


Refreshful holidays with family and friends, weeklong Team building stays or take a plunge and live life in highly awarded of the grid long-stays ideal for remote working families or groups.

Success allows you to do pretty much 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.

First in Living Provence is our Retreats base near Forcalquier in Provence South of France. We provide a high-quality family home set in a billionaire-like experience, off the grid, astoundingly beautiful natural park (yet readily accessible to the world).

You will find lavender, 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 that 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 get you anywhere in Europe fast.

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

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


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