Venue Setting

A gorgeous 3 bedroom cottage, with an exquisitely designed Chef's kitchen, the only other one like it is in the Smithsonian! A property that catalyzed the food movement in 1970s Provence (There's a whole book on it by Luke Barr!) Exquisite in its maintenance, it still carries the charm it was built to embody. Built on the homestead of Simone Beck, collaborator for "Mastering the Art of French Cooking".

This cottage sits on well-maintained acres of gardens nestled just outside the community of Grasse. Easy access to beaches, perfume factories, grocery stores, and more. A secluded estate of a few homes, just off the main road.

La Pitchoune's 3 bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom property boasts glorious gardens, and of course a kitchen that is designed for cooking. Yes, it still has the pegboard known and loved by fans all over the world. The space can comfortably sleep 6 adults, and we have additional sleeping spaces (think shared sleeping mats) for children (up to 4 easily).

A yoga space, a 16 ft canvas tent, is available in the garden during the summer months. It can host up to 6 students or so comfortably.

La Pitchoune was built by Julia and Paul Child in the 1960's and has hosted hundreds of famous food influencers over the years. In the 1990's Kathie Alex turned it into a cooking school, Cooking with Friends in France, and is now the home of The Courageous Cooking École de Cuisine.

We host one wedding, the 1st week of June each year. It is all-inclusive, and pricing begins at $65,000.
