Slow tourism

La Roucoulade's philosophy is Slow chic:
you can be eco-friendly and still look good!

Slow life is an art of living based on the present, it gives meaning to our activities, refusing the dictatorship of the clock, to learn to savour each moment.
An authentic way of life dedicated to the essential, nature, in the heart of Provence!
And as Coco Chanel would say:
"Simplicity is the key to true elegance

The family of La Roucoulade

Who is behind the Roucoulade? 

Une famille : Clémence et Guillaume, couple qui, à l’approche de la crise de la quarantaine, a décidé de quitter Paris pour vivre de façon plus cool en Provence dans un village sympathique avec leurs 2 enfants Gaspard (12 ans) et Toscane (7 ans).

We fell in love with this country house, just after the first confinement, our objective is to share a maximum of convivial moments. That's why we have created a gîte for 4 people to be able to receive you; and as we are extremely lucky to live here, we rent the house during the vacations and some weekends, just to let other families enjoy it.

For me, Clémence, it's a new challenge that combines my DNA as the daughter of a hotel owner in Provence and my 18 years as a digital salesperson.
I am your privileged contact.

The chic of Provence! Superb mas with all the charm of Provence. As beautiful on the outside as on the inside. Decorated with great taste. Soft colours and a very modern atmosphere. We had a very pleasant stay between relaxation, conviviality and nice visits. The owners, Clémence and Guillaume, are adorable, happy to welcome us and show us all the good addresses thanks to their concierge service (massage, seafood, lifeguard...) They thought of everything! All you have to do is settle in and enjoy this haven of peace and bask in the sun around the magnificent pool!

A lovely place to stay, with the swimming pool area and the mill as a backdrop. Between sea, vineyards, olive trees and typical villages, the change of scenery is total. Clémence is very dedicated and attentive to her guests.

Superb weekend at La Roucoulade, a Provencal gîte ideally situated with magnificent views of both the village of Ventabren and its mill. The setting is really top notch. Certainly the most beautiful gite we have been in to date. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.

A very pleasant autumnal weekend in La Roucoulade. The gîte is well equipped and has a fireplace which is perfect for the season. Children are welcome and have
a nice room and toys at their disposal.

Special mention for the magnificent swimming pool area with a view of the mill, the charcuterie/cheese board and the burrata with truffles and finally for the warm and attentive welcome from Clémence .
