Located in the Drôme Provençale, in the region of Tricastin land of lavender and truffles, this eighteenth-century farmhouse, fully renovated with the help of local artisans, professionals in this type of construction, is how much we may wish for a vacation.





Pascale and Stéphane Hemard decided to leave their jobs in 2006 and dedicated to wine and wine making. and what better place than the banks of the Rhone? (Côte du Rhone) for this purpose. The farmhouse between vineyards and lavender fields has transformed its interiors whilst retaining its essence.

However, upon entering the room we found one of my favorite maxims, “less is more”. There is not a piece of furniture or an ornament more, in some cases it is almost spartan. White walls with a painting, old comfortable well waxed or painted chairs Aenea, and simple textiles give us the clue that the real treasure is the landscape.

The bathrooms, some with Jacuzzi, are completely modern, with tile matching colors with textiles of each room, but no thought has gone into the decor too, are simple and functional.

Some suites have direct access to perfectly tended garden with tables and chairs under the pergola (I think that’s common practice in Mediterranean countries) prepared for breakfast or snacks. Courtyards also have tables for lunch under large umbrellas, the coats of the stone walls of the house.
