Our team is at your service:

Joost Schwartz


"I am the founder and director of Bastion d’Azur. I am Dutch and have been living in the South of France since 1999. Before moving to France, I owned a construction company. My passion is to make your second home a relaxing and enjoyable experience.”
Cecile Cecotto

Office manager

Chantal Serre


"After working part at Bastion d’Azur time for several years, Joost called me that there was a vacancy at the office. I immediately said yes! Now I am the person that solves many behind-the-scenes issues that come up. I’ll spend hours on the phone to get your internet working and to find out why your water bill is (too) high. My English has gotten so much better, which makes me happy as well. See you at the office or talk to you on the phone!"
