About Jörg Schwinge
After I quitted the stressful life in a large city, I found with my wife an easy life in „Provence“. I love „Provence“, the light, the climate, the magnificent nature, the people and their „savoir vivre“. You find little regional markets, excellent vineyards, best restaurants, antiques, curios... If you like, share this with us.

Large house with nice outdoor areas and pool. Perfect for large groups. Complete with fantastic host
I booked Jorg and Maria's house for my family for the week following my wedding. Jorg was responsive to emails and generally really helpful/ accommodating. The house was very clean and tidy with lots of bathrooms/ living spaces for a large group. The pool is fantastic, as is the large outdoor area for dinners etc. During our stay Jorg and Maria had lots of helpful suggestions about things to do and places to eat. Many thanks! Hilary
