    Great award winning site for those who seek to retreat into the provence countryside. Ideal as a Winter sun break as well as a very popular Summer R&R destination (sold out every year). Ideal for couples traveling together, larger families and the more sophisticated traveler who expects more than a rental shell.

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    Our prices as most French gites are based on Saturday to Saturday rentals it is inpossable* to break these in the high and peak seasons. If you wish to request rental periods other then weekly we can consider them in the shoulder or off season months.

    You can change the rental week to Thursday to Thursday outside the Main period, meaning that you can save on your flights by booking Thursday flights instead of Saturday flights with our Smartdates.

    Smartdates are available in the periods shown as 'Flexible'. *In the event that there is sufficient demand for the main season we will make them available as well.

    We regularily offer specials for 'Earlybird booking' and 'You pick your price' offers on weeks still available near their take up times. You could save greatly on either of these offers, Look at our website see link below at the end of this page.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 30 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We are two friends who stayed at The Main House for a week in September 2013. We loved our time there and did not want to leave. The access to the property via 4WD was quite do-able and added to the fun of staying there. Directions were accurate, easy to follow and thorough. The location is heaven, with surrounding views... more

Management response:

Thank you very much for your kind words and for coming to La Colle. I was very happy to help you as I am used to being in strange lands and a little local help is always of an assistance, especially as you both came from Australia. I hope you both continue your global discoveries with great success. more

As I sit here by the pool, sipping rosé, I am trying to come up with words to adequately describe our experience here at La Colle en Provence for the last four months. There are so many things to say! Where to begin? At the beginning, I guess. We arrived here at the beginning of March for a four month... more

Management response:

It is so nice to have you stay and live in the house the way it was meant to be. A real family home. Seeing you explore and learn about the area over the past four months has been a real pleasure. The way you adapted to the vagaries of the weather this year and the surprises of country living... more
