It took Charlotte and Stéphane three years of meticulous work and hours of carving to restore all its splendour to this building dating back from 1700.

An antique limestone pool fountain fully carved by ancient surfaces is installed at the heart of the garden to welcome visitors.

To recreate the original Provence feel, an old tapestry covers the main wall in the kitchen. This French country style kitchen opens to the living room by two very symmetrical custom made libraries designed by Charlotte.french-living-room style

The living room and kitchen communicate in terms of design and altruistic beauty…

The kitchen hood and stove perfectly go along with the antique limestone biblical tiles. The majestic kitchen revolves around two elements: an old cast iron heater and iron chandelier and tassel chandelier, original creation by Dominique and Didier Pic. The old stone pavement from the Mediterranean was acquired from ancient surfaces, which specialises in antique reclaimed materials.
