"Soraya and Nicolas have settled in the countryside between Aix en Provence and Marseille, at Simaine Collongue.
They have been seduced by this little bit of nature, deep in the Provence hills, with its pin trees, its oaks, its aromatic herbs, its wild animals who approach sometimes at dawn.
Many hikes start from the garden and lead to the Pilon du Roi, which tops with an 710m altitude. From the summit, you have a beautiful view of Marseille and Aix en Provence.
Soraya and Nicolas raise together their 2 children, 2 dogs, 2 turtles and 2 chickens in this privileged environment that many envy them.
That’s probably why there is always visitors; they like to receive, Nicola prepares large meals and we all stay for late dinners on the terrace, laughing and chatting under the fresh trees.
Since always, Nicolas loves to cook. He is even selected for a national TV show “a perfect dinner”. At the same time, the factory where Soraya works as an accounter shuts down. From the success of Nicolas TV show and Soraya’s redundancy, is created an audacious and generous project of Guest House. Willing to share the happiness to live close to nature and in the spirit of changing their lives, the young couple start to renovate and expand their house in March 2013: l’Oustalet des Marres is born.
Soon, you will be able to visit them in their lovely home. Comfortable and charming rooms, respectful of the natural environment will allow to spend a romantic weekend or a family holiday. You will have a great time at l’Oustalet des Marres."
