Why La Forçate?

Impressions

Let's introduce ourselves

About us

Complementing the beautiful mansion, park and extended grounds, the local culture and people make this a perfect place to live. La Forçate has easy access to the ocean, its beaches, the pyrenees and a weath of historic monuments and propreties.

Our adventure started in October 2015 together with our two dogs and five cats (the family also now includes scores of koi carpe and a dozen chickens). We enjoy sharing our oasis with our guests whom are from many countries, who very quickly adapt to the tranquil way of life at La Forçate.
