Once upon a time in the south…

A lifechanging decision..

In 2021 I moved to France with my husband Kees and our 3 dogs to start a new adventure there. After I had enjoyed running a B&B in the Netherlands for several years, we thought it would be a nice challenge to start a luxury boutique hideaway in the South of France.

After orienting ourselves well, our choice fell on Occitania, namely the department of LOT: a beautiful wooded area with clean nature and medieval villages. And on top of that, it’s only a 2.5-hour drive to the Pyrenees or to Bordeaux and the Atlantic coast.

In the summer of 2021 we became the proud owner of a 17th century fortified farmhouse with 11 hectares of land and woodland. There was a lot to be done: modernize the interior of the house, new roofs on the outbuildings, renovate the “petit-atelier” into a cozy communal residence, transform the grange into 4 beautiful rooms/suites, build a swimming pool and terraces, plant trees, etc.

In order to preserve the authentic character of the buildings, we have carried out all the work with local artisans. And I was able to indulge in my passions: designing, furnishing and styling. Of course, there also had to be a “potager” (vegetable garden). Because let’s be honest: “what could be better than sun-ripened tomatoes, eggplants, pumpkins, etc. Delicious: fresh on your plate. And also cosmeas, dahlias, marigolds, etc. to put in the rooms of the guests in season.
We enjoy it to the fullest and would like to share it with you.

Hope to see you soon!
