I'm a typical multilingual product of an international school curriculum and parents of different nationalities. I work in International Sales and thus travel a lot to many different destinations; this is a substantial part of what makes me tick.
I came to the Provence in 1984 and am still deeply grateful to be able to live in such a diverse and beautiful part of the world.
My wife Pascale is a talented event and interior decorator, she not only does our house and the apt we rent but her company also decorates restaurants and hotels and organizes corporate or private events.
She was born 10 kms from where we live now and thus knows a lot about the area we live in. She's the daughter of a Michelin starred chef and knows where the best table is for every budget as well as how to make typical French "cuisine".
Our lifestyle, our friends and our interests are like that food, diverse...
We love hosting people with as ground rule that we host as we would like to be hosted: In comfort and taste with attention to detail. We enjoy feeling proximity while leaving ample space for personal experiences and local discoveries.
We have 4 kids in their early twenties who have mostly left home plus 2 very friendly dogs (Ebène & Java) who we are sure you will meet as they are generally adopted and spoilt by most of our guests.
Our own travel method would be best described as being “get there and improvise afterwards, avoid the tourist traps and seek out where the locals go”.
Our destinations mostly result from a detail which triggered our curiosity or motivation. We like music, films, reading and just about any form of leisure that takes place on or near water.
Hosting is proving to be a great way to meet a very large variety of truly fabulous people from all over the world and from all walks of life. We love it !
