The weight of tradition

Joseph Rosier, an architect in Marseille, discovered the hill-top village of Gordes just after the Second World War. Charmed by this refuge for renowned artists such as Chagall and Vasarely, he built a family holiday home. It was at a time when the village priest served as estate-agent. In 1970, after studying notarial law, Joseph’s son, Christian-Jacques, founded Gordes Immobilier, an experience he then repeated in other Provençal towns. Grand-sons Jean-Marc and Jean-Christophe then set their sights on the Agence Rosier, endowing it with the latest marketing tools for sales and seasonal rentals, and setting up partnerships with agencies abroad. Today, its reputation largely extends beyond the frontiers of the Luberon, and even France.
