If there was a polar opposite Air Bnb from the Turtle Lair — an overdose of neon nostalgic distractions, briefly available to rent in Tribeca for $10 a night — it might be La Pitchoune. Julia Child's home in Côte d'Azur, or the French Riviera, is a lush, remote cottage that costs visitors north of $600 per night (with a five-night minimum) with the primary attraction being a beautifully preserved kitchen.
It's kind of perfect that the home is on Air Bnb. Child frequently shared La Pitchoune with friends and artists. Now owned by Evie and Makenna Johnston, the first owners with no direct connection to Child, the spirit of the Châteauneuf home is still alive, welcoming visitors looking to relax and make beef stroganoff.
