Gde ćete biti

Bras, Provansa-Alpe-Azurna obala, Француска

Bras is a quaint medieval village, picturesquely nestled in the wooded hills of what is called "Green Provence", a haven of greenery and freshness in the heart of the rural hinterland of the Var department, halfway between the Alpine foothills and the Mediterranean Sea. Bordered by two large limestone massifs, Sainte Baume and Sainte Victoire, and located 350 m above sea level, the area benefits from a healthy meridional mountain climate with bright sunny days and pleasantly cool nights. Amongst spectacular natural scenery of lushly forests, garrigue shrubland, vineyards and olive groves, the locality offers an oasis of tranquillity and peace, an intimate hideaway from it all, allowing you to fully unwind well off the beaten tourist track, discover a land rich in heritage and history and enjoy the typical Provencal art of living.

The community has currently about 2800 inhabitants, and compared to a town, there is obviously a limited commercial offer. Nevertheless, you will find all essential goods for your daily needs: bakery, butcher, little supermarket, cafe, pub, pizza takeaway as well as an excellent restaurant with a lovely garden terrace. There is also the Cellier des Templiers wine shop, a pharmacy, a tobacco and newspaper kiosk, and not to forget a small weekly market and the direct food sales from local farms. All are in walking distance from our house down in the village centre, which is about 1.5 km away, corresponding to a 15 minutes walk or 3 minutes drive. Otherwise, a large choice of shops and restaurants is available in the nearby towns of Saint Maximin (10 km), Barjols (15 km) and Brignoles (14 km).

The name of Bras, although equivalent to the French word for "arm", has nothing to do with human anatomy, but is said to come from the Celtic term "Braz" which means water hole. And indeed, the surroundings are characterized by numerous rivers, purling brooks and crystal-clear ponds providing humidity and pleasant freshness even at the height of summer. The scenery is blessed with stunning landscapes of rolling hills, small mountains and hidden valleys covered with abundant vegetation, significantly named "Green Provence". In our ever-shrinking, more and more urbanised world this region still offers pristine, raw nature at its most beautiful with vast areas of untouched wilderness, interrupted only occasionally by a peaceful fairytale hamlet deeply hidden in the woods or perched on a hilltop like an eagle's nest.

These scenic landscapes are typical for the hinterland of the Var and delight all lovers of nature and authenticity, offering many beautiful places for walking and hiking, but also a wide range of activities such as bike tours, climbing, horse riding, canoeing/kayaking, water sports, paragliding, tennis, golf, fishing, cultural visits, to mention only the most popular. Moreover, thanks to its privileged geographical location between the Verdon Gorges and the beaches of the French Riviera, our village makes an ideal base from which to tour and explore all the treasures and highlights of Provence.

The history of Bras, a thousand years old, is intimately linked to the era of the Knights Templar: in the thirteenth century the order established here an important Commandry laying out vast areas of farmland which was exploited during the Crusades to provide supplies to the Order's bases in the Holy Land via the port of Marseilles. Unfortunately, the edifices of that period have not withstood the ravages of time and today only a small well restored chapel is left and some vestiges in ruins. Nevertheless, despite the disappearance of the ancient walls, the land on which the habitants of Bras live today will always remain steeped in history...

L'ouverture de notre maison d'hôtes en 2006 concrétise le rêve d'un projet de vie alternatif hors des sentiers battus. À l'époque, nous avions plus de 20 ans de carrière derrière nous dont de nombreuses années en Afrique au service de la Coopération Internationale et des Nations Unies. Nous, c'est Harald, ancien journaliste TV de Stuttgart et Joël, ancien aide soignant de Marseille.

C'est le hasard qui nous avait donné un coup de pouce en 1997 : lors d'un séjour au Cap, nous avons trouvé dans une "guesthouse" une hospitalité si chaleureuse que nous avons aussitôt succombé à l'idée de créer nous-mêmes un tel lieu de rencontre. Mais en raison de la situation politique alors incertaine en Afrique du Sud, nous avons choisi la 2e plus belle région du monde, la Provence...

Après de longues recherches nous sommes tombés sur un magnifique terrain au cœur de la "Provence Verte". Véritable coup de cœur, nous l'avons acquis, construit notre maison et sommes partis vers de nouveaux horizons...

Un de nos premiers hôtes écrivait dans notre livre d'or : "Nous sommes arrivés en étrangers et repartons en amis." - un mot monumental envers lequel nous nous sentons redevables jusqu'à ce jour.

The opening of our guest house in 2006 materializes the long-cherished dream of an alternative life project off the beaten track. At the time, over 20 years of professional career lay behind us with many years working in Africa for development organisations and the UN. We, that's Harald, a former German TV journalist from Stuttgart and Joël, a former nurse from Marseilles.

In 1997, a happy coincidence gave us a boost: during a trip to South Africa we stayed at a family-run homestay in Cape Town, and experienced such a warm hospitality that we spontaneously succumbed to the idea of creating a similar place ourselves. Initially planned in the Cape region, the uncertain political situation in South Africa made us finally opt for the second most beautiful region in the world: Provence...

After years of searching, we came across a lovely piece of land, a picturesquely hidden gem in the heart of what is called "Green Provence". It was like love at first sight, so we acquired the plot, built our mansion and set off for new horizons...

One of our first guests wrote in our guest book: "We came as strangers and leave as friends..." - a great word to which we feel obligated until today.

Die Eröffnung unser Pension in 2006 markiert die Erfüllung eines lang gehegten Traums von einem Lebensentwurf abseits der ausgetretenen Pfade. Hinter uns lagen damals über 20 Jahre Berufskarriere, zuletzt im Entwicklungsdienst und für die UN in Afrika. Wir, das ist Harald, ehemals Fernsehjournalist aus Stuttgart und Joël, Krankenpfleger aus Marseille.

Es war der Zufall, der uns 1997 auf die Sprünge half: auf einem Trip durch Südafrika erfuhren wir in einem "Guesthouse" in Kapstadt eine so herzliche Gastfreundschaft, dass wir spontan beschlossen, auch einen solchen Treffpunkt der netten Leute zu schaffen.

Ursprünglich wollten wir uns dafür ebenfalls am Kap niederlassen, doch wegen der damals unsicheren politischen Lage fiel unsere Wahl auf die zweitschönste Region der Welt, die Provence...

Nach langer Suche stiessen wir auf ein herrliches Fleckchen unberührtes Land im Herzen der so genannten "grünen Provence", das uns sogleich verzauberte. Wir kauften es, errichteten ein Haus und machten uns auf zu neuen Ufern...

Einer unserer ersten Besucher schrieb ins Gästebuch: "Wir kamen als Fremde und gehen als Freunde." - ein wahrhaft monumentaler Satz, dem wir uns bis heute verpflichtet fühlen.
