— How would you describe Maison Collongue in a few words?
— Maison Collongue
— What’s the history of the farmhouse and what was your inspiration to renovate it and convert it into a B&B?
The principle of our renovation was to respect the three ages of the buildings, maintaining what could be kept of the old and combining that with new elements. The bathrooms and kitchens all look new, adding to the contrast between the new and the old.
As I had once studied architecture but never actually worked as an architect, I wanted to work on my own architectural project at least once in my life. This served as the inspiration to renovate the houses and turn them into a luxury B&B. I especially enjoyed working with the design on a personal project, which meant I could be my own creative director.”

— Please tell us about the interior design and the atmosphere of Maison Collongue?
Guests are always positively surprised by this B&B and often didn’t think it would be possible to mix this type of architecture with Scandinavian vintage furniture.”
— Please tell us about the rooms and facilities of the B&B.
There are four guest rooms on the first floor and one on the ground floor. All the rooms are oriented with a southern view of the garden and four hectares of fields. One of the bedrooms upstairs is 14 square metres, and the three others are each 18 square metres. The one on the ground floor is the largest with 28 square metres. It’s a family room with two single extra beds and a king-sized bed.”
