Located barely 3 km from the previous one on the upper reaches of Cazevieille, this new estate lies in 260 hectares of forest land with holm oaks, arbutus and juniper bushes, interspersed with areas of scrubland.
The place contains gems we were keen to renovate professionally using traditional methods: a chapel, a former presbytery, and the remains of some old dry-stone buildings. For two years, craftsmen from the Compagnons du Devoir guild – carpenters, sculptors, stonecutters and joiners – gradually restored life to the old stones, rehabilitating and transforming ancient buildings that now have a new purpose.
But this respect for authenticity in no way prohibits the modernity necessary for working in the present day, or our taste for contemporary art.
