Now You Can Sleep In Julia Child’s French Cottage And Cook In Her Kitchen.
Julia Child effortlessly took out the terrifying and intimidating feelings that come with cooking. The American chef and best-selling author brought French cuisine to Americans in the 1960’s. Men and women were glued to their televisions, attempting to follow Child’s steps in the kitchen hoping to duplicate her culinary masterpieces.
And it was in her French cottage, La Pitchoune in Provence where Child would often return to concoct new dishes. Now the home has been purchased by an American couple who wanted to keep everything intact. Yvonne and Makenna Johnston will turn Child’s former getaway into a cooking school as well as an Airbnb for the lovers of fine food.
Julia Child would visit the market daily in Cannes.
The cottage has been left almost untouched since Child last stayed there in 1992.

The counters were built extra high to accommodate Child's 6-foot-2 frame.
The original labels on the food containers remain. One here is for shallots and the other for garlic.
Child's husband Paul Child outlined with a felt where everything went on the pegboard.
The last dish Child cooked in this kitchen was Provençale boeuf en daube; beef stew.
The 1,500-square-foot house is just a 30 minute drive from Cannes.
A yoga space will be a new addition to the home.
The AirBnB is offering guests to stay for $610 per night.
The cooking school will run from April-June, and September-October in 2017.
The three-bedroom cottage has olive trees and lavender.
