Who are we


Born abroad and having lived in many different countries and environments, we have chosen to settle in the Aix region. We learned that if many artists have succumbed to the region’s charm, it’s because it offers absolutely magnificent landscapes that are just as conducive to walks, relaxation and inspiration…

We’ll be delighted to share the sunshine and the song of the cicadas with you, the best addresses for traditional Provençal markets, the GPS coordinates of pretty lavender fields and the little roads nestling in large olive groves that will take you to the producers of Rosé, olive oil, honey and Provençal soaps…

FUVOLEA is the name we have chosen to reflect Fuveau (the name of the commune where we live) and the olive tree, the emblematic tree of Provence, known as 'Olea europaea' (a species of tree and shrub of which one variety has been domesticated and cultivated to become the olive tree).

More about the family

Johan is Dutch, from the north of the Netherlands. An avid mountain biker, road and gravel cyclist he enjoys exploring the region’s unique landscapes and will be delighted to share his greatest discoveries with you.

Christelle is French. She has lived in a number of different countries and has found Provence to be a welcoming place with a great atmosphere.

Little Eva is passionate about singing. Her dream is naturally to become a singer, but her love of animals could well lead her to another calling.

The whole family speaks fluent French and English. Johan speaks Dutch. Christelle will be happy to assist you in Italian, although it might be a bit rusty.

The last two members of the family are Imke, our Australian shepherd about whom all the children are crazy, and Sweetie, a large, timid tomcat with the looks of a wild cat.

What our customers say about us

A charming stay with Chris and Johan. Both are exceptionally kind and accommodating. The bed is very comfortable and of excellent quality, and the shower has high water pressure. They were kind enough to leave me a nice bottle of Rose wine, and to bring me breakfast! I 100% recommend this charming establishment for your stay. Thanks to both of you! Marlène Everything was perfect.

We had a pleasant stay with Christelle. We found his house to be a haven of peace that I highly recommend for discovering Aix and the surrounding area. Not only is the accommodation very neat and clean, but Christelle and her family gave us a warm welcome and lots of tips for discovering this magnificent region.

We rented the little house opposite the Swimming pool in early April for a few days. I can only recommend this accommodation which is very well equipped, very functional and above all very clean! The bedding is excellent! The garden is beautiful and the hosts are really charming and attentive! Don't hesitate!

Visiting Provence for a few days, enjoy the magnificent scenery and beautiful mountain bike rides. Recently renovated and equipped with all comforts, excellent sleeping comfort, the residence is well located in a quiet environment with a pretty garden and swimming pool, just a stone's throw from Aix-en-Provence. Within walking distance there's also a good restaurant offering good value for money.

Johan Netherlands

Nice modern decor with everything you need. Large windows overlooking heated pool and terrace! Super Helpful and friendly owners with tips for excursions and always available, you should need help. Thank you very much! It was very nice!

Vera Germany

Superbe location. Lovely property with two separated houses in complete privacy from each other. Large, landscaped garden with some splendid olive trees. We rented the small house in front of the large pool. The accommodation was super clean and functional. The bedding is of really good quality, we slept well, and it was calm. The pool was heated at 26C, so we made the most of it. The owners are discreet, we didn’t see them much, but they were willing to discuss, especially when we needed ideas for visits and a restaurant for the 2nd evening. The only downside was that we would have liked a charging point for the car, but the owner told us it is planned for next year. We’ll be back with pleasure.
