Global vibes in Provence

When Pia and Jan Amdi decided to move to France in 2007 it was not a very hard decision for them to make. They have always been adventurous. Like when they moved to India with their two daughters when they were in their thirties. They have never lived the same place for more than 10 years.
When Pia’s career as an artist began to take off, they were yet again ready to plunge into new adventures. This time they moved from Aarhus in Denmark, to Provence in the south of France.

Their stylish home is a mix of Danish design classics, Indian antiques and southern French charm. This is a home that exudes personality and where every item has been carefully picked. Their good taste and attention to detail make this property something very special.
