"We live in a world where everything is speeding up and where we are constantly on the go and trying to keep up...
What if you slowed down the pace a little, while you're on holiday?

We invite you to come and relax with us, spend time as a family and reconnect with what's important. Come and take the time to enjoy those who are dear to you, in the countryside and amidst the gentle way of life that exists in the South of France.

We have unearthed little corners of paradise for you to enjoy: comfortable, warm and peaceful, for a re-energising holiday beneath the Provence sun.


All our villas and holiday properties are located within a radius of 30km / 20 miles from Mont Ventoux.

=> Why choose us ?
Because we live here all year round, so we know our region inside out and have a deep connection with it.

Because, compared with the huge websites and web portals listing thousands of rental properties with nothing to distinguish them, we have made the conscious decision to remain a small local agency, of human dimensions, staying very close to the accommodation we offer, all of which we are personally familiar with.

According to your preferences, we offer you a selection of high-quality rentals for your holiday in southern France:

  • The "Contemporary" selection: discover our villas showcasing contemporary design and architecture, and our modern, new-build houses with heated pool or stunning views
  • The "Charm and Stone" selection: reserve a Provençal "mas" (traditional farmhouse), a stone house or a charming gîte in the middle of the countryside or close to the village
  • The "Family" selection: find a holiday property suitable for young children, with heated or enclosed pool, cot and high chair.
  • The "Budget" selection: holiday properties with private pool at a great price, for a wonderful holiday in the South of France

"SLOW TRAVEL",or the art of travelling at your own pace...

From "Slow Food" …

Slow Food is a movement that originated in Italy in 1986 as a reaction to the fast food culture.
Based on three principles: flavour, authenticity and diversity, Slow Food places value on regional produce and traditional know-how.
It also aims to restore people's desire to discover tastes and aromas, to cultivate sensory pleasure and in particular to take time to appreciate life's little luxuries.

... to "Slow Travel"...

Slow Travel is a state of mind, a way of travelling which involves discovering a place in-depth and taking the time to exchange and share, listen and look, taste and appreciate.

It is immersing oneself in a place, experiencing the rhythm of its inhabitants and seasons, surrounding oneself with nature while respecting the environment.
