Interview By:

— How would you describe Maison Collongue in a few words?

Guillaume: “Maison Collongue is a luxury B&B in Lourmarin, France. It is a very authentic place in the beautiful region of Provence. The buildings are historic and combine three centuries of vernacular architecture but the design is very contemporary with 20th century furniture and art.”

— What’s the history of the farmhouse and what was your inspiration to renovate it and convert it into a B&B?

Guillaume: “The farmhouse was built in the 17th century and another construction added to it in the 18th century. With the income generated through the sale of silken textiles, the owners built a bourgeois home in the 19th century.

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?

Guillaume: “The houses have a very silent and peaceful atmosphere, despite the interior design being quite colourful. It is basically white with big splashes of color, like strong rugs or pieces of art creating a strong contrast with the nudity of the rest.

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.

Guillaume: “Maison Collongue’s common areas are on the ground floor, which is open to all guest. It includes a big living room with a fireplace, a kitchen, a dining room and a large library.

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.”
