As entrepreneurs we have experienced it all…that one request that makes you jump up and down. The email you have been waiting for from a new customer, Domaine l’Ancienne École, requesting information and a quotation for a new WordPress website in the North Eastern corner of the Provence. A small village called Vinsobres, only 45 km away from our location but oh so different, a very positive different that is !
How does a request from an English couple owning a wine domain + gîtes in the Drôme end up in Holland ? Simple, through our portfolio. In 2012 we built a Wordpress website for another wine domain in the Provence called Château Unang. The owners asked us to rebuilt their old website to new modern standards and create a fresh ‘élan’. And so we did…with pleasure. These are one of the nicest assignments one can scoop 🙂
A visit to the customer
As we were still in Holland at the time of the request, the Thorburns were happy to find out that we were heading their direction anyway so that made it a bit more obvious to meet each other ‘live’. And so we paid them a visit, took a peek at their gorgeous domain and two gîtes, and enjoyed an excellent lunch paired with their refreshing Carpe Diem Rosé.
If you are interested in staying in one of the gîtes or to taste and buy their biological wines, or for any other question you might have, please do not hesitate to contact them !

Being able to visit your customer abroad is always a fun and exciting to do, especially to photograph. You drive through places you would otherwise maybe never visit. Vinsobres is one of the cutest little villages I’ve ever seen so also here the camera was always at hand. Be aware…the little ‘bistrot’ on the pictures below is closed on Wednesday. As usual, you can click on each photograph to enlarge…it is very worthed 🙂
