  • Description


    - from March 2024 until early November 2024
    - from March 2025 until early November 2025

    We are a Provence family from the village of Roquebrune sur Argens (Var). André Abbe, journalist and photographer, now retired, was born in the family house you’ll stay in, in Roquebrune-sur-Argens. Thanks to 50 years of career, André had the opportunity to travel internationally, and capture moments of life in France, Europe, Asia, South America, but also in Oceania. You’ll meet André, François (his son who’s running the Charity) and many local people (the neighbors are particularly nice).

    More about the project:
    From 1970 to 2000, André has taken more than 100,000 photos of his travels, Provence and more particularly, his hometown, Roquebrune, and its surroundings. These pictures are the result of a passion and a photographic heritage that he wishes to revive through a non-profit making organization: Abbe Photo.

    Our charity Abbe Photo has one main goal: to give life again to rare and unknown archives to the general public. And this is your mission!

    In 2023, we are offering a 3rd exhibition with 60 heritage photos from André Abbe. These photos are exhibited on 2 floors of our historic Maison Abbe in Roquebrune, which has been in the family for 4 generations. This 16th century house has four floors.

    On the ground floor, there is a self-contained apartment with its own entrance. It is fully equipped with a bedroom with a double bed, small living room, kitchen area and bathroom. No exhibition, no pictures, it is your private space!
