Gorgeous 3 bedroom cottage, with exquisitely designed Chef's kitchen, the only other one like it is in the Smithsonian! A property that catalyzed the food movement in 1970s Provence (There's a whole book on it by Luke Barr!) Exquisite in its maintenance, it still carries the charm it was built to embody. Built on the homestead of Simone Beck, collaborator for "Mastering the Art of French Cooking".

We had a fantastic time at La Peetch. The house is adorable and very neat. The grounds are lovely. The kitchen, iconic. Rick and Julie the hosts were wonderful and knowledgable about the house and it's history. We can't wait to go again!

La pitchoune was everything we dreamt off. Absolutely perfect. It was amazing to live Julia moments and so much better when it’s her old space. Craig and Tina were perfect hosts, so hospitable and helpful. Would love to go there again.
