  Main House - La Colle - Haute Provence  


Two double bedrooms, one single, sleeps 4-5 very comfortably. Very spacious, Swimming Pool (shared),   30 Hectares of private parkland,  garden and outside eating area, countryside surroundings, quite location. 

Available: All Year Round!



La Colle originally owned by Jacques Le Scanff a French painter, writer and poet was first restored by him and his friend financier Yves Claret in the 60's. Unfortunately they had to let go of the project in the early 80's and the property was left unattended for many years.

We took over the property in the middle 90's and have restored it based on the vision of Le Scanff and his family/friends. This restoration process has been based totally on the old building techniques merged only in some cases with the new.

The "Vout" 48 m2, is the principal lounge dinning area, originally a stable for animals at the turn of the century it was created into a living space by Le Scanff in the 60's. This vast space is a very comfortable area for relaxing and family activities. The huge fireplace at the end of the "Vout", more often used in winter, is the focal point of the room. We have set up many seating and relaxation areas in the room.

The kitchen 19 m2, as always is the focal point of the house, accessed directly from the grounds you will find that it has ample working areas and that you can chat and cook at the same time without having to fight for space.

Fully equipped with all the necessary tools to create the splendid dishes that you can conceive. The kitchen also has a dinning area where breakfast or other meals can be eaten in the same space. 

The advantage that you have in Provence is that the local produces is so good that it really doesn't take very much to create a feast!

The bathroom 13 m2, again is well proportioned, leaving ample space to dress, wash and generally look after yourselves. We have installed a real cast iron bath which includes a shower.
