About the owner: My grandparents purchased this property in 1955. After an experience of around 10 years in the hotel industry, I started to work in agriculture and opened my gîtes in 1995.
I am very attached to this farmhouse, to its history
Why the Owner Chose Fontvieille: This estate purchased by my grandparents is the result of many years of hard work and passion
I wanted to work in the hotel industry and be able to maintain this property that I love so much
The gîtes appeared to me as an evident aim.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Thanks to our hospitality experience, we decided to offer a different approach to tourism: closer to our guests and more convivial.
The property is ideally located between the Provence and the Camargue
Gîtes are quiet and very comfortable with nice services, quality furniture and irreproachable cleanliness.
Each year we improve the quality of each gîte and we do our best to ensure an excellent stay in Provence to our guests.
