    Dear Roland, thank you for sharing your recent experiences. Your house looks absolutely perfect (no less tasteful than I would expect from you). You have reminded me how much I miss my French summers in the Charente.

    My heart is soaring!!! To know that a place like this still exists gives one a reason to go on…. Your home is, as one is apt to say, the way to live “a simple” life. All ease and comfort, yet soft for the eyes and body. And the gardens? Ready to welcome one depending on whether to meditate, or share conversation, or read.
    You created a paradise in reality..
    Nature, art, food, and shopping! I think I would love to visit the enticing flea market…. My favorite photo? The last one of you walking noting I will be back soon! BRAVO, you are the best!
    P.S. “The color your life “ color? I will be searching for an item in this color for the start of the new year 2022

    “Mon été autour de St Tropez”… J’adore autant les décors des tables en extérieur, que les recettes, les lieux méconnus de la Provence accompagnés des mots simples et généreux de Roland.
    Félicitation pour les rénovations de ta maison Marguerite !
    Bises

    Thank you so much Dear Roland. On this miserable, wet, stormy windy, grey day your beautiful message lifted me out of wintry England and took me back to your wonderful Birthday (20 years ago) and also renewed my love affair with La Belle Provence. Always knew you as a wonderful designer but was unaware of your literary prowess. Look forward to the next treat. Love Jan xxxx

    Very nice presentation and a lovely part of the world. I grew up in Cannes and love the entire Southern France coast.

    Quelle superbe rénovation. Une mention particulière pour les carreaux noirs et blancs qui donnent beaucoup de caractère à la maison. Et ce carnet, qui reflète si bien cette belle région que nous connaissons bien et pour laquelle nous avons beaucoup d’affection.

    Roland, as usual, a beautifully written and informative piece that makes everyone wish for and dream of the life that you have in this wonderful country of France.
    Your renovated house looks gorgeous – the perfect balance of sophisticated elegance and rural charm.
    The garden also looks splendid and has given me some much needed inspiration to tackle my own!
    I look forward to visiting you in Grimaud one day soon. Bises Julia

    Cher Roland, quelle belle réussite à distance ! Style et couleurs sont magnifiques et reposants sous cette lumière exceptionnelle. Merci de nous faire profiter de toutes ces beautés provençales dont on rêve ici, surtout pendant notre long confinement…
    Bravo Roland, c’est un triomphe ! Enjoy !
