Please allow us to introduce ourselves: we are Simone, an interior designer from The Netherlands, and Séverine, an e-business manager in the home decoration industry from France.
Homes in Provence is an activity that originated from the experiences that I, Simone, gathered during the more than thirty years that I've lived in Provence. Together with my husband I started a B&B near l'Isle sur la Sorgue in 1993, which turned out to be very successful. In 2003, after ten years, I decided to sell, and looking for another challenge I decided to concentrate on holiday rental activities in the Luberon area.
As the rental business grew I decided to partner with my longtime friend Séverine, who has her roots firmly in Provence. She was born in the Luberon, spent some time outside the region due to work but settled in Provence again in 1998, together with her family. She has always been interested in interior design, culture and traveling and has had her own consulting business for renovating private homes, so together we form an excellent team!
We both know the area really well. We still keep exploring today, and love to share interesting facts about Provence; like the markets we visited, shops we came across, wines to sample and the latest restaurant to have your lunch or spend an evening. If you decide to book with us, shortly before your arrival we will send you a Provence 'MiniGuide' with all of our tips on restaurants, wine domains, markets and possible tours & hikes!
Should you decide to spend your holiday in Provence we can help you find your dream house. The Homes in Provence site showcases our personal selection of rental homes, whose owners all aim at high quality standards to guarantee a really great holiday for you and your family.
We know all owners and their houses on a personal level, and encouraged by the feedback we receive from our guests we are able to help the owners maintain the highest standards possible. As you may have noticed we actively limit the number of houses on the site, to be able to offer you to the level of personal service we would like to receive ourselves!
If you have special requests please don't hesitate to contact us!
