The adventure starts when you change 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 La Colle en Provence hamlet and have the first glimpse of your private, peaceful surroundings 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 Main House is the larger property and features an extensive living space called a "Voute".

It has three large bedrooms and a lovely country kitchen, where you prepare the feasts together.

The annex is only ten meters from the property entrance and has its en-suite bathroom.

During the winter months, there is a majestic open fireplace where you can roast chestnuts and marshmallows while discussing the day's topics.


We fully clean, prepare and make up the beds before you arrive and inspect that the property works appropriately.

Many items and essentials are provided, especially for holidays, like soaps, welcome gifts, pepper and salt, washing powder and towels and many other useful items that a fully working home needs.

We have all sorts of entertainment available, from film libraries, books offered on a leave-one take-one basis, games, Xbox, and 52" TV. Multiple internet access points in the property.

There are comfortable seating everywhere and additional tables that can be set up as workspaces.

You can bring your whole tribe for a week/month/more long work session.

You can have access to printers and scanners. La Colle has been restored from a ruined hamlet and is perched on a hill overlooking the Provence valley below.

We have built an outdoor workspace complete with a six-seater table. This space has a fantastic panoramic view of the valley below and will help you create your best work.


Living Provence is based on you having a great home experience. While at our place, you will also have time to explore our estate, its woods and meadows and discover its lavender fields, olive plantations and more.

Discover the pleasure of our swimming pool, local trips to the Forcalquier market and see some of the most beautiful areas of this part of Provence so encapsulated by the world's leading artists: Van Gogh, Cezanne, Giono and much more. Even Turner has been here....

The Mediterranean diet is admired for its healthy living properties. We highly recommend purchasing local products at the market, off-roadside fruit and vegetable farm shops, and local supermarkets 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 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 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 a beach with plenty of relaxing sun loungers and spaces. Therefore, it is a painted pool that needs quite a lot of maintenance, hence the varied opening times.


We will try to make your French Living experience as lovely 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.

We have a "do not disturb policy unless needed" so that you can have a peaceful and uninterrupted stay with us.

There is a market once a week, and you can enjoy visiting Forcalquier, the nearest main town. Or Sigonce is a short walk down the hill for a coffee, croissant or small produce. There is a bar and post office in the Marie there as well.
