A dream come true

All Flemish girls share the same dream: to start their own b&b in the Provence. This dream became a reality for me in 2004 when entrepreneurs Anton and Inge Gonnissen, and the couple behind ABS Bouwteam, pointed me to a spot in Bonnieux. They encouraged me to have a look and have been supporting me ever since.

When I discovered Absoluut Valvert, it was love at first sight: an eighteenth century mas with stunning views over the hills of the Petit Luberon. It was far from perfect then, but I immediately recognised the potential and took to work.

Two years after opening the b&b Belgian journalist, author and globetrotter Pierre Darge came along for a good story. He was deeply impressed by the Luberon, by Absoluut Valvert and by … myself.

Together we have been working hard to build a jewel that has impressed so many visitors who are looking for a quiet spot in a classy atmosphere.

More than ten years later I feel somewhat proud and still enjoy every day of my job. It’s often hard work but with 300 sunny days a year, unclouded skies and surrounded by nature there is no reason to complain. Meeting our guests has been a very rewarding and enriching experience and so ever since that first year in Provence.

We are looking forwards to welcome you soon!
