Responsible tourism: Provence self catering apartments in France


We are very aware and actively support our environment. Recycling everything used in our works, and all waste generated by the family and guests. We buy foods and products directly from our local farmers and the village market, we advise guests and recommend various producers who are environmentally aware

We use eco friendly lighting and propose to convert to a more sustainable energy and water source in the near future. We suggest our guests be aware of their footprint inside and outside the house

The house is 500 years old and has been renovated, using local materials, and traditional methods, adding our own style, while respecting it's history and our environment. We have learned from local artists and craftsmen, who have advised and provided us with fantastic sustainable options. In decorating we have used only natural earth pigments from Roussillon (Le Conservation des Ocres in Roussillion) and we recommend guests, to explore these natural colors and techniques for their own homes


We support and encourage the community through our workshops and the many activities around the area. Offering local artist and talented people a space to create, connect and get inspired.

We offer advice and can suggest countless gems in the surrounding area, recommending local restaurants and the many activities going on around us. We sometimes have artist residence, art exhibitions and we have a show room where we promote and support local artist art and artisans.

We sell natural clothes and objects from local and international designers fairly traded. We also have a community board for people to connect and discover what others are doing around us and further away...

There are also many fantastic things to discover in the sunshine of Provence... such as hilltop villages, roman ruins, painting & cookery courses, parent and child pottery classes. Hot air ballooning, cycling and many amazing treks inland and on the mountains around
