What's the Story

  • Hôtel de Tingry was built in the 17th century, by one of the most powerful and influential families of Avignon, Joseph Balthazard des Laurents from Piedmont. Tingry became his secondary residence. His descendant, Eléonor Pulchérie des Laurents, married Charles Montmorency-Luxembourg, prince of Tingry, thus giving his name to the mansion. The lush environment with its proximity to the vineyards, the exceptional countryside of Luberon, and the picturesque village of Ménerbes were all reasons for the area to be an aristocratic holiday spot. Later and for thirteen years, Hôtel de Tingry, became the private residence of Madame Nancy Negley, a rich American and patron of the arts. When her neighbor, Dora Maar, died, Nancy bought her house wishing to preserve the artists memory, and later turned it into a residency for artists. Since 2019, Hotel de Tingry has been classified as a Historical Monument. The architecture of this home is exceptional: it has a very beautiful porch and its courtyard was, in the past paved with pebble stones from the Durance river.
