From an old abandoned farmhouse in the heart of the Alpilles, beloved by Jean Cocteau who shot his film “The Testament of Orpheus”, her great grandfather Raymond Thuillier, fell in love with the place and erected there a protected cocoon, charming, off time, inaugurated by Georges Pompidou in 1945, the year of birth of Pierre André Charial, her father. The Queen of England, Maurice Druon, Frédéric Dard, Marcel Pagnol, Picasso and Pavarotti to Charles Aznavour and Daniel Auteuil, many personalities have tasted the timeless charm of this unique place. Because at Baumanière in the shade of ageless trees in gardens, crumbling under the bowers of roses of Ronsard, following the scent of honeysuckle or on the road leading to the village on foot, time stops, eyes fill with the natural beauty of the landscape, and when we sit down to eat under the mulberry trees, taste buds get excited.
