We are born in Denmark where we have lived our professional life. We sold our company years ago and completed our dream to live in the south of France.
We are now living in a beautiful old farmhouse - a bergerie, where we are growing and making some wine. The house is situated in one of the most interesting areas in France, between the Alps and the Mediterranean. We are close to Frejus with the old roman culture, Cannes where we can go shopping and all the atelier/museums where the most famous artists have been living and working.
We have invested in some "maisons de village" in Fayence, to give our guests a possibility to enjoy this area, as we do.
