In a former
life we lived in Belgium, Antwerp. One day we were having drinks,
musing and chatting cosily around the table,
about what it would be like in a place where the sun always shines and people are more relaxed.
Before we knew it, we were in the car, heading to the south of France.
We looked at several properties for sale, and “suddenly” we were the new owners
of an old winemakers house from the 19th century which had a lot of potential.
Renovating this “ruine” would be an enormous job, but that couldn’t stop us.
We could already imagine what we could make of it: a fantastic B&B facility!
2 years later (in 2010) we are now proud to present to you La Nove!
counts over 300 days of sunshine which we want to make full use of.
La Nove has solar panels for electricity and hot water. Also a cistern for recuperating
rainwater. The tapwater comes directly from the natural well of La Caunette and is
perfectly drinkable. We’ve installed a watersoftener for decalcification, so we can
considerably reduce the use of detergents.
