Welcome to Domaine Les Martins!
Da.Re stands for David&Regis but pronounced “dare” in English it stands for taking a courageous position, which we admire, so we dare ourselves to change, dare to start over, we dare to live life to the fullest. Over the years that we have been together dare became our motto. We are a married couple and decided to live our dream: A guesthouse in Provence! After 20 years of business life in New York, where David was a fashion executive and Regis owned an international retail design practice, we felt it was time to start a new chapter focusing on what is essential to us in life: a peaceful environment, living in beautiful nature, a healthy life style, friends and good company. After lots of research we found this little piece of heaven we want to share with our guests.
We have mixed European backgrounds and we speak English, on parle francais, wir sprechen deutsch, türkçe konusuyoruz e hablamos un poquito de espanol.
We love to entertain and enjoy meeting people.
