"After many years traveling the world for the Air France company, I put my luggage in this little corner of paradise, in Béarn, in Navarrenx, close to the Basque Country, between Pau and Biarritz, the ideal place to recharge my batteries and perfect to disconnect from the hectic life of Paris.
This place is O Petit BOnheur, OPB for friends, and this stopover, I know it well! All my summer holidays, I spent them here, on this wine estate which belonged to my grandparents for generations and I took the opportunity to discover Béarn, Landes, the Basque Country and the north of Spain, always looking for good plans, original activities, good spots on the Basque or Landes coast, good gourmet addresses to enjoy life with my friends, passing by at home ".
My passions: Curious by nature, hyperactive family, I have been passionate since childhood for the natural garden, healthy food, squash, horses (thank you my grandparents!) Skiing in the Pyrenees, travel, decoration, architecture, photography, fashion, contemporary art, Solex and 4L. Music rhythms my daily life. With Noé, my 12 year old son, we have a rock band in which I sing accompanied by the keyboard and he is on drums.
For over a year I have been practicing mindfulness yoga and meditation and I am a fan!
A new life
It was at 50 that I decided to live a dream that fully corresponds to my values: Living here, close to mine, reviving the family estate to enhance it, sharing with you my love for the Southwest and developing myself with all these passions to pass on to you.
It is the start of a great adventure around permaculture, bees and orchards!
Since March 2019, I have been carrying the agricultural part of the project with organic market gardening, a giant vegetable garden to feed a table d'hôtes. I have acquired many training courses to develop and develop my land, helped by CIVAM Béarn and the Chamber of Agriculture in Pau.
The objective of 2020 is oriented towards the development of the tourist part (an evidence with my course!) By increasing the accommodation capacity in order to meet all requests because my place is very attractive for people wanting to recharge their batteries
So stay connected on social networks to follow the OPB adventure!
