Hello there my name is James.
I am a passionate gardener and have lived in Provence for 32 years. I am outgoing and social. My native language is English but I also speak both French and Spanish to a high level. I worked as an auctioneer with both Sotheby’s and Christie’s and continue as a volunteer for numerous charities.
Life without a project isn’t life…so I am always working on something. I paint ( oils and watercolours) sculpt in stone and generally have a garden scheme on going.

There’s so much to see and do in my area a year wouldn’t be enough time to enjoy it all.
I have bikes and the nearest village is only 4kms away. There’s great walking locally and I have a swimming pool. Travellers will experience the way of life in Provence.
Please do check the calendar before you think to write….many thanks.
