Gerard Faivre Provencal Homes & Gardens

My “some day when my ship comes in” life (or at least when our savings gets back to somewhere near where it was this time last year) includes a house in the south of France or the south of Italy.   I yearn for a place where olive trees and lemons can grow in my garden but I don’t want to move to LA.   Cost not considered I would want a home that was created by Gerard Faivre.   He and his wife take flipping properties to a whole new level.   From their website

As a treasure hunter, he unearths the most beautiful marvels in Les Alpilles, houses in the most precious of stone, buys them and renovates them down to the smallest detail. Structural work, interior decoration, landscaped gardens, everything is reinvented to be sublime. Every purchase is the response to an intense and specific emotion that Gérard Faivre is keen to bring back to life and pass on….

Here are some of the gardens in his amazing projects.

I can’t get enough!….here are some more…

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
