Back to the 18th century, our property called La Maison d'Uliva was actually a wine cellar that you can notice from the hole in the wall inside the house where the grapes were transformed. In the 1970's, the restructuration of the all complex was carried out by a group of students coming from Le Corbusier Architecture school in Marseille and the several houses of the hamlet were restored with a special care of the original features. A new part of the house was created maintaining with the same approach: preserve the details left behind since the past centuries mixing designers elements, traditional and ethnical objects from all over the world. At last, in 2006 La Maison d'Uliva became a bed and breakfast. Susanna who manages the property prepares wonderful breakfast specialities, using the best natural products available for each season, giving you the opportunity of tasting straordinary apricots, cherries and blackberries... There are two accomodations in the property, each 30 square metres big, fit to accommodate a party of 5 adults and a child.

The owners and Uliva went out of their way to help us have a wonderful holiday. The breakfast was always a delightful variety of fresh local produce and homemade jams, which set us up for a day of cycling.
