MAYBE YOU LEARNED to bake bread during the pandemic, but you’re still lightyears away from becoming Julia Child herself. Well, now you can get a little closer. The home of the famed cooking teacher, author, and TV personality is now available for rent in the South of France. The “La Peetch” cottage the Childs built in Cote d’Azur, France, was recently sold, and its new owners (a Colorado-based couple) have turned it into an Airbnb culinary retreat.

La Peetch has three bedrooms, a sitting room, and gardens with a terrace and swimming pool. The most important part of the cottage, of course, is the kitchen, with wooden countertops, a pegboard pot, and utensil storage painted with the outlines of the original cooking implements used by Julia.

The cottage is currently on Airbnb for $720 per night, but in the off-season (September through October) the home is used as a cooking school. According
