|A little Country Hamlet
To express in words, the beauty of our little
haven in the countryside is no small task, until
you can experience it for yourself only then,
will you know the pleasures it can bring.
away on a small hillside is our little hamlet of
La Colle with its three principal properties. You
will not find here; traffic jams, noises of the
city , pollution, parking tickets or a grey sky.
Instead you will find nature in all its glories and
will, more than likely, be awaken by the birds
and the bees rather than the busy cry of the
La Colle itself is a hamlet constructed
several hundred years ago, completely built of
natural stone, and is a good example of the
ancient life and times of Provence.
Within five minutes walk in any direction
you are presented by the splendor of nature,
prairie, forest, lavender fields, scrub; the
extent of natural plants and wild life is quite
astounding. Here you can see and explore the
bounties of living close to nature, you can taste
and smell it, wonder at its beauty; even the
storms are spectacular !
Our property alone has 30 hectares of
private park land, yet this is small compared to
the adjoining natural space, some of which is
cultivated and some left just as it has been for
La Colle sits on the east face of a small
hill ( Altitude 633 m) and has a dominant view of
the surrounding countryside.
